    well I got a bit of a problem with my new pc I built, well it worked for a while until I tried to flash my xbox 360. After that I accidentally uninstalled by drivers for my Mobo, which is a nforce 590 sli. So I restored my pc and it took about 4 hours to put windows back on. So when I got windows back on it was going dirt slow and the sound is choppy, I thought it was my hard drive so I went out and bought another sata hard drive. And I just tried to restore windows again and I tried to partition the new hard drive but its still going slow. I have a amd 64 x 2 6000+ processor. And I have a geforce 7300gt graphics card. Someone please help me. Could it be the bios settings for the processor speed? Please help my computer is running like a laptop.

    Check your RAM. Maybe a stick of it failed and your working on 128 or 256. Use the process of elimination.

    Remove everything from the system that you can (Slaves, secondary CD, floppy etc) and do a clean install of the operating system.

    well the bios did change alittle i was goin in there and i turned my raids on and off. i have 2.5 gigs of ram right now(two 1 gig sticks and a 512 stick. i have two 250 gig sata hard drives in there. i ran spyware doctor, avg, and registry mechanic when i had windows on there before. i restored the computer again and it is taking entirely too long to reinstall windows. i mean it ran for 4 hours and it was just at 53%. someone told me you can change the speed of a processor in the bios, i'm thinking something got changed, i just don't know what it is.

    re-install your windows from scratch on the new hd as you have to much software corruption on the old hd.
