Hey there, I just upgraded my PC; here are my specs:
Intel Core i54670k 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
ASUS GTX 660 Ti DirectC
Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM
I kept my old Graphics Card, Power Supply, and Case, and I am still waiting on my new Hard Drive to arrive, though my current Hard Drive is only about a month old.
My upgrade stemmed from a whole host of problems I was having with my computer, and I was hoping that my upgrade would fix it. The final out of about 6 seperate problems that I faced was a Kernel Data Inpage Error; the rest of the problems were fixed.
So I got my new motherboard, CPU, and RAM, wiped my hard drive clean, and installed Windows 8.1. I installed all of my motherboard drivers, including the chipset drivers, and restarted my computer because I noticed it was moving slow. I thought this was due to the fact that I hadn't yet restarted, effectively finishing the installation for the drivers, but even after the restart my computer is moving dreadfully slow. It boots up relatively fine and quickly, but as soon as I get to the desktop, everything moves at the speed of snail. Folders take about 40-60 seconds to open, and opening new tabs in Google Chrome takes about 30 seconds.
I've been having ongoing problems with this computer for 2 months now, and I just want them to be over. Any help would be extremely appreciated!
i've once got a slow computer. like when you click an icon multiple times, there's no response. But then i figured out that i got a virus installed without me knowing. for me it was a program called Xiph.org. i uninstall it and everything is fine.
so I suggest virus scanning and go to the windows uninstall or change program utility and uninstall EVERYTHING that you don't need on your computer.
