Windows keeps freezing/slow

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So ill get right into it

I just put a bunch of new hardware into my system using my old HDD which sill had Nvidia drivers but i'm now using a AMD card. I noticed right away that windows would freeze all the time and all of the basic programs would not respond. I quickly did a driver sweep and got rid of all the Nvidia drivers and put the AMD ones on it was good a first but then 10 minutes later programs would not respond.

I'm thinking it could be the ram I have just come from 6gb of DDR3 to 2gb of DDR2 at 800hz and i'm using Windows 7 64bit. Sooo I'm starting think now that my ram could be slowing down my computer I look in task manager and at idle it is using 1.5gb of the 2gb that's in there upgrading my ram and motherboard at this point is not going to happen but I was hoping that this ram should work fine but what do you guys think the issue is?

if it was the mobo in your sig rig. it only supports ddr2. How did you have ddr3 ram in it?. Also if by chance it was a different motherboard you were using. it could be because you didn't reformat the hd.

I sold my old mobo which was DDR3 and got a new one which is DDR2 and I haven't reformatted my HDD because I think it should work fine and I don't want to loose my stuff.

There might be some program that might be able to purge the pc of all the old drivers. But its obvious that the os installed did not like the change in hard ware. My recommendation is to back up/burn/save the data you want to other media. then reformat. Good luck in witch ever you decide to do.
