Loading slow on new PC

So I just did a major update on my PC. I replaced the MoBo, RAM, CPU and casing. Non-mentioned parts are being reused.
Everything seems to work like it should, but there's on huge problem: things are being loaded very slow.
I.e. at boot, it takes much longer for programs to start up, compared to the previous PC. Loading icons of filetypes and favicons on my favouritesbar on Chrome take up a long time.
I'm guessing some configuration is set wrong? The exact same HDD worked much faster on my previous PC, which had worse... everything.

RAM: http://puu.sh/4tin
CPU: http://puu.sh/4tio
MoBo: http://puu.sh/4tir
HDD: http://puu.sh/4tiu

Then you are extremely lucky it ran at all

Did you install the drivers from the disk that came with the motherboard?

Have you looked in device manager and checked that there are no conflicts for any of the motherboard drivers ?
Is windows pestering you to re register?

No.

Remco32,

Hello, you can notice a "conflict" in the device manager by a yellow "!".

Right-click "my computer" go to "properties" then "device manager" (usually on the left side of the screen)

There will be yellow ! marks if something is acting up.

Also, you may want to download a registry fixer, like CCCLEANER. There is a "registry" button you can click and "find issues" and it will fix any registry issues you may have. Also, be sure to download all newest drivers from all your prospective hardware sites, i.e. motherboard site, graphics card site, etc.

After installing new drivers PLEASE be sure to delete old ones.

Also, if all this fails to fix your problem. Reformat your hard drive and download windows again.

CCleaner fixed some registry issues.
GPU driver is up2date, unsure about the MoBo's.

what mobo did you upgrade from?

Can you go to device manager and list what scsi/raid controller is showing

open disk drives and what is the properties of the hard drive

A dated one, can't remember the model.
I can't seem to find the option, since I'm using a translated version of Windows. Could you point it out for me? http://puu.sh/4tCA

Oopslagcontrollers = SCSI/RAID controllers

i see you have IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers listed as well

here is what i was getting towards figuring out:

I bet you are running your harddrive in IDE ATA/ATAPI mode because the onboard SCSI/RAID controller drivers were not preloaded before you swapped motherboards ( kind of a hack and sometimes works).

So when windows started up that first time it was like - the old sata controller hdd is gone but I see the disk on the IDE controller so we will boot off that.

In a nutshell, the reason the computer is so slow is that your SATA hard drive is running at IDE hard drive speeds (66Mbytes /sec)

Honestly, you should reinstall windows. you might be able to hack the sata/raid drivers of your current mobo into the installation but it is tricky.

HDD is running in IDE mode, yes.
Is there a way to fix this without a fresh reinstall? I hate putting everything back after those.

Yes you can install the SATA drivers afterwards

search on google for how to do that for your mb and your version of windows
