Having a major problem with a computer.
It began for about a month ago, it started doing minor freezes
for 1-2seconds, mostly in games at that time.
But a few days it took a turn to the worse and began freezing up
in windows whenever I tried to open something (or basically do anything).
It freezes for 1-2seconds and then it runs again.
And running two programs at once result in the computer
acting like a 486. Ie, very sloooooow.
I've done a complete reinstall of Windows XP & cleaned the hd 100%.
Even if I don't install any drivers for gfx and such it still freezes.
(Yes, I've tried with all the newest drivers and windows update).
The processor isn't overloaded, it can be on like 4% and this still happens.
Memory isn't fully used either.
845pe chipset s478/533mhz motherboard.
512mb pc2700 DDR ram
Geforce FX5200 120mb DDR
120gb IDE 7200rpm HD (8mb cache)
P4 2,4ghx pc533 processor
and some other junk.
At first I thought it was something wrong with the Harddrive, so
I've done scandisk on it, defragged it and everything, but without
