PC responds very slow when i replaced my 160gb hd with 500gb hd

Hello,
I have a PC with these configurations: Intel(R) Pentium 4 CPU 3.06GHz,1GB RAM with XP Service Pack 2 OS.My previously 160GB sata Hard disk crashed.When I replaced it with a new 500GB sata hard disk with MS XP Service Pack 2 OS my PC responds very slowly.I installed no software in it. Only installed Audio driver.When I start or shut down my PC it takes more than 5 mins of time.It also takes time when I open a folder.Earlier the above configuration was there in my 160 gb hard disk.Can you please tell me what's the problem in it???
Regards
Sitesh

  2. It's okay to install the audio driver, but you should also install the chipset drivers and the sata drivers for your motherboard. Goto device manager in control panel and install the driver for whatever device has an exclamation mark at the moment.
