I wasn't sure where to post this so I put it here, sorry if it should be elsewhere
I just installed a new 1tb hdd in my system and I've been noticing slow downs with some programs like ati catalyst and internet explorer. I have my OS and all my programs (except for a game or 2) installed on my 60gb ssd and I'm using the 1tb hdd as supplemental storage. Is the Hard drive the problem or should I be looking elsewhere?
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
OCZ Vertex 4 60gb ssd
Seagate Barracuda 1tb hdd
AMD FX-8150 cpu
G.skill Ripjaws X series 2x4gb memory sticks
Asus M5A88-M Motherboard with built in Radeon 4250
Hauppauge Colossus capture card
Thermaltake Lanbox Lite Case
Everything seemed to run fine before I installed the hdd but idk if it's the drive itself or maybe how I formatted it (i used windows disk management to format instead of the disk that came with the drive because the disk was corrupt). I moved a couple folders (Documents, Videos, Pictures, etc.) onto the hdd. I also got the "master boot record not found" error a couple days after installation which i was able to fix with the OS installation disk.
Any help anyone can give me would be much appreciated.
