I've recently noticed that my computer continually keeps locking up, it never used to, but whenever I try to switch to a different browser, or even when I type something quickly, it lags behind a good few sentances.
I have done a virus scan, and well, nothing came up.. I also recently brought a new mobo and ram "no for this reason however" but still, it continually locks up..
Is there anything to check, or software to check for any problems?
I know that everything is connected fine inside, and all of the hardware -should be fine-.. but I believe I either have a virus... or something slowing me way down.
You can get a second hard drive and install the operating system and browser from scratch. Then, if you Don't have a problem, move over your data from your old hard disk. And, start reinstalling programs you need.... (I've found no magic bullet to fix a slowed down version of MS Windows, you just have to reload them after 2--3 years...)
IF you still have a problem, then its your hardware. Post details of MB, RAM, CPU, ...etc and folks can help diagnose from there
BTW, Did you actually install the new motherboard and RAM ????
