I installed a new hard disk in my notebook as my older one got a failure.There is windows xp professional in the new one.The dilemma is that it is taking too much time to get started,almost 15 minutes.And also,after getting started,my notebook is working very slowly.Task manager is showing 100% CPU usage all the time.I don`t know which process is taking all the resources.Even P1 will be better than my notebook.Is there is any solution to this?
The new hard disk is of 40 GB.My notebook is toshiba satellite A15 1292.It has 256 MB RAM,2.4 GHz,intel celeron mobile processer.It was working fine with the older hard disk.
Please help me,tell me any solution.Please explain in detail as I don`t know any technical terms.I searched all over internet about this ploblem and got to know that this is quite common,but everybody has different reasons and solutions.I tried some solutions also like deleted some registry entries,which were mentioned on that site,and also uninstalled MS office,but nothing worked.Other solutions were containing very technical terms which I could not understand.So please tell me a step by step procedure for solving this problem.I will be glad to give any other info you want about my notebook.
Please help me,I will be very thankful.
