Hi, I have been having trouble for the last month ive noticed my computer getting slower on restart. it use to be about 1min 20sex then went to about 3-4min. at this point I upgraded my virus scanner etc etc. nothing was found. then it started having issues while i was playing. slow performace. taking acouple seconds for everything to happen. at this point i figured virus or some hardware error. wiped my comp reinstalled windows. the install wasnt successful. i tried again. success. but... it was still slow & upon restart took over 25min to get back to my desktop. right now im on but its very sluggish. HELP!!!

Hello and welcome to the forums
What are your system specs ? make sure you have the latest chipset and VGA drivers installed.

hi maziar thx for replying. ive updated all the drivers. but havent updated the bio's. im wondering which flash utility i should use as ive never flashed my bio's before. my version is 1.0. the latest is 1.7 so im guessing i need to to that. hoping it will solve the problem. my computer takes about an hr to finally reach my desktop. seems to hang on loading windows the most. also ive noticed once my comp has been on for awhile it runs slightly better. but still takes decades to accomplish any meager task. ive alrdy burned the new bios to a cd. just wondering which flash utility i should use. & any other suggestions you might have or anyone else who happens to wander across this thread.
