Requesting a little help

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Just got a few new toys for computer. Its nothing spectacular but can only do so much with funds. Am having a few problems and I think its my new mobo. (will post pics of specs at bottom) My comp seems to be hanging up fairly often, but if I hit Ctrl, Alt, Delete then it catches up to itself. The other question I have is with the specs that you can see here do you think I could OC my proc to 3.0 if not higher?? Any usefull info would be awesome. Im wanting to get a new mobo soon but need to save up the money for a nice one this was best I could get with $$ at hand.

you might have spy ware, virus slowing down your pc , i recommend you run a full scan using nod32 (free) and avg

then if it is still slow download hijackthis and post your result

about upgrading mobo i recommend you dont do since you wont see a real performance upgrade, instead try to save up more money and upgrade your whole system.

btw that processor has 20x multiplier so it should overclock fairly good. i mean if you raise your fsb by 10 mhz you can get a 200 mhz boost. you should be able to get around 3.2 without loosening ram timings

Oh I also forgot I did flash my bios Im wondering if I flashed and didnt need to. I have heard that if you flash bios when you are not having the problems that the flash is made to fix that it can cause small issues (correct me if im wrong)

when bioses first come out they have bugs in them and do not necessarily support the things it can , newer versions should fix these problems not create new ones. btw did you try overclocking your system ? also when you press ctrl alt delete how many system processes do you have ?

did you reinstall windows after you installed the new mobo... if not windows will run like crap on steroids, which may work sometimes, but die a few minutes later.

no i have not messed with over clocking at all i prefer to make sure everything works well for a few months before i OC that way I can tell if i screwed it up. I had to reinstall windows i got new mobo, hdd, and processor all at the same time made real sure that everything was compatible. I know that PCChips mobo arent that great and that P23G is a typical PCChips mobo

Just realized something. My comp seems to mostly have issues when I alt+tab to different windows. What would cause this?? I have never heard of anything like this before. So frustrating to have new computer and for it to work like a abacus.

Please fill in your system specs in the User CP at the top of this page.

Try running ''Hijackthis'' and scan for types of spyware/Adware http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
