  1. Run HD tune, your Reads and your access time probably suck real bad.

    It could be that Vista is taking a bit to index it as well. One it gets it indexed it should speed back up.
  2. ok i run hd tune pro 3.10 on benchmard (read) my results were

    tranfer rate: min - .9 mb/sec
    max - 107.3 mb/sec
    average - 44.5 mb/sec

    access time 37.3ms
    burst rate 22.9 mb/sec
    cpu usage 3.2%
    temp 21C

    how are those numbers compared to anything i have no clue lol is this what is causing me to slow down

    thanks in advance
