Althlon XP Barton 2500+ (1.83 Ghz)
Western Digital 80Gb 8mb cache

and is using a GF3 Ti500, and is having problems. It seems to be a bit slow. There is a very long delay when posting, and we are currently having difficulties installing Windows XP. The multiplier/fsb settings are correct and the proc is detected as a 2500. Any ideas as to why this thing is so sluggish??
The WD 8MB cache Drive issue does exist but it is rare.

Thanks for the replies. When the floppy is connected it seems like it is constantly being accessed. When installing Windows there were a couple missing file errors, but it installed. Then after a reboot windows wouldnt load. My friend is just going to return the mobo to Fry's(why I wouldnt be suprised if the mobo is broken) and hope he gets a working one. Thanks again.
