since i re-installed Windows XP in my computer, my Wester Digital WD2000JS (SATA2) is slower than before, it loads stuff slower, and i can clearly see it when it loads windows, it takes like 2x more time than before.
i tried defragging, but even there it seem to be too slow to defrag.
here's the specs of my computer:
Case: Antec Sonata 2 (with Antec SmartPower 2.0 450W)
Board: Asus A8V-E SE
CPU: AMD Athlon64 3700+ 2.2Ghz (with ThermalTake CL-P0200)
RAM: 1gb DDRAM400
Video: MSI Radeon X1300Pro 256mb (ATI chipset)
OS: Windows XP (with Service Pack 2 and latest patches installed)
(sound and network is on-board)
my computer is working fine, it's just that the speed/transfer rate of my hard-disk is killing me for multi-tasking (and sometimes when i have web radio on and i want to open, for example, MSN Messenger, i can hear the sound stuttering because the hard-disk (i believe it's the transfer rate) is slower.
