Recently, I've had a lot of trouble with my PC. First, it started going really slow, so I deleted a bunch of stuff and defraged using an awesome program called Diskeeper. Then, I installed Intel Application Accelerator, to increase my disk performance. I started making a backup using R-Drive Image.
I was mainly using information provided to me by pcpitstop.com, is that a good source to use? Safe and all? I've heard nothing bad, never really researched though.
Anyways, the problem started when I installed a new driver for my graphics card. I don't remember exactly in which order things happened, but I think I installed a new driver, and it didn't load properly(yellow exlimation in device manager). Ever since, it has not been loading properly on startup, and I have to disable/enable it in order for it to work.
I'm running with a crappy system, Intel Pentium 4 2.66ghz, 1gb ram, 64mb integrated graphics.. yeah that one they keep talking about, the 82845G.
Prior to everything screwing up, I was able to run most games. I am somewhat of a game addict, WoW most recently, seem to be able to play it decently, running with 20-30 FPS - not the best, but I don't exactly know any different, my computer has never been great.
I am not a computer guru, but I know pretty well what's going on with my system. I cannot for the life of me understand whats going on now. There are no new processes on my task manager, one extra on msconfig "dumprep 0 -k" - not sure what it does, but it came when installing the graphics driver I think.
Any suggestions as to how I may fix this problem? Please let me know, I will reply updating when I get back from work tomorrow, around 1am Eastern Time (GMT -05:00).
