    MORE information! Where it is running slow? games , or everything?

    PSU is more than enough and a good brand too.

    Yes like Shadowduck said, MORE INFO! That Powersupply though is very reliable and will suit you properly if you decide to get it.
  3. For games it sometimes runs slow but mostly it takes forever for the computer to boot up

    also when I start the computer up right before it starts loading XP it says error loading OS

    Why would it be saying that?

    Have you tried reinstalling Windows?

    Memtest your RAM...

    Memtest86.com
  5. I was planning on reinstalling windows soon

    I just was wondering what caused it to get messed up if it was a virus or a hardware problem

    My recommendation is running Memtest86 over night.

    A lot of OS errors (such as yours) are the result of malfunctioning memory modules.
  7. My computer had recently been having problems running games (random lockups requiring restart) and if I alt-tabbed out of a game the mouse pointer wouldn't show up on the screen until I quit the game

    It would also have random reboots and a few days ago it just crashed and wouldn't boot so I stripped it down to the cpu and a stick of ram and it started up and I added everything but the video card and works then I put the video card back in and it won't start (non fans spin or anything)

    I am guessing it is a vide card problem that might have been caused by either a malfunction of something on the video card or somehting went bad in the PSU

    here is the PSU I have

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817104934

    I am in the process of replacing my PSU and Video card
  8. I took out the battery on the motherboard and reset all the bios settings and the error loading os went away
