It have a Dell D3000 CPU. I installed a secondary samsung SP0802N hard drive. I thought the problem stemmed from the new speakers i purchased but after troubleshooting i discovered that the problem only occurs with the adding of the additional HD. The speed is slow when i try to open files/folders. But the main problem is that i have distorted sound when i try to play a mpeg/avi movie or MP3/CD. There is also a lag when clicking the back button(along with a distorted sound) while exploring the content in My Computer.


Trouble shooting.
Replaced the speakers with new ones.
Complete Up to date Virus scan.
Did a complete system restore with additional HD(SP0802N) unattached.
Afterwards the problem was fixed.

Problem occured again with attachment of HD(SP0802N)

What I need to know!
Is the added HD Corrupt?
I would like to backup some of the files b4 reformating(if need b)
Can those files be saved or are they corrupt also?

Thanx!

Are you sure you installed the hard drive correctly? A hard drive cable installed upside-down can contribute to a big loss in speed, though the drive will work.
