Media player and winrar real slow

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
ok, ill try to be precise and hope this is in the right category

i have a custom built pc i did about a yr ago
the specs are

msi k9n2 sli platinum board
amd phenom ll x4 940 quad core at 3.00
8gb ddr2
ati radeon hd 4770 graphic card
western digital 1tb hd-sata
seagate 500 gb hd-sata
western digital 500 gb hd-sata
sony dvdrw/with lightscribe
550 watt psu
windows 7 64 bit

my problem is that here recently i have been having issues with any media players and winrar
i have never had this issue until now and i am pretty good at trouble shooting all pc issues for the most part.

i have scanned my pc with..antivirus
avast/eset nod32/vipre

spyware
superantispyware/malwarebytes/spyware terminator

i have ran a hijackthis and i see nothing bad in there
all the scans come up clean

when i go to winrar and click extract or extract here i used to be able to extract a 700 mb movie lessthan a minute
now all of a sudden it takes about 3 or 4 minutes.
when i open a video file with any media player, my pc used to play them with no problems, but now there is lag and freezes until it gets going then it is usually ok.....

at first i thought it was logitech webcam software vid.exe but i uninstalled it and it worked fine for a few, but then it started acting up again.
if i open cntrol/alt/del there is nothing that takes up alot of cpu useage, everything is normal.....

i have went as far as taking everything from one hd and transfering it to another and using dban to wipe then and reformat them i reset all hd's back to zero and i still have the problem
i have used pc check to check all the drives/ram/cpu/motherboard and they all test ok..the test ran over night and took atleast 8 hrs to complete.

i have even wiped out my c drive that has windows installed and reinstalled a fresh copy after formnatting the hd and the problem still happens?

the only thing i have not tried yet is taking out ram and video card..i have all the latest updates from microsoft and ati

i have just installed the new release of avast free antivirus and scanned it with and it is clean

i only had 1 antivirus installed at 1 time...

is my video card going bad? would that affect winrar with its extraction time?
is a hd going bad? if so why is winrar and media players slow on all 3 hd's?
are they all 3 bad??

Your problem actually sounds related to the HDD, in my opinion. Have you tried running a chkdsk to see if there's any bad sectors in your HDD, or if your HDD is failing?

Open the "Computer" window
Right-click on the drive in question
Select the "Tools" tab
In the Error-checking area, click <Check Now>.

also make sure you have the latest chipset drivers for your board

also disable drive compression
under the drive properties make sure 'compress this drive to save disk space' is unticked

not trying to be rude, but i believe i have tried all of the suggestions and no luck.
i have ran hard drive test for hrs and hrs and no bad block or sectors on any of the 3 drives.
i have wiped my os and installed fresh.
i have trandfered all stuff from one hd to another until i reset them all back to zero and reset mbr. when i copy the stuff back to the drive..it does same thing..winrar and media play lag real bad..nothing else is affected..just winrar and media player.

What does the SMART status of the hard drives tell you? use Crystal Disk Info to see. Same thing happened to me with videos being slow, stopping, or distorting, freezing, etc. Turned out it was a bad hard drive.

Nope is Crystal Disk says all SMART drives are in the green it's not the hard drives then. Crystal Disk usually detects things better than any other SMART checker. I've had a bad drive show up as fine with most programs, but Crystal disk finds an error.

Only thing I could think of is a chipset driver, or the like if you have updated them recently. Sadly though I'd say its time to format and see if that fixes the issue. You could make an image of your hard drive and put it on another and then fresh install windows and if the issue is still there, then just reinstall using the Image if the issue is still there... You'll lose nothing but might gain some insight.
