Ensure everything is seated properly (cpu,ram,psu)

Try running safe-mode (F8 key).

Try booting with 1 stick of ram.

Try booting from another device besides your hdd.

Get back with your results after trying this.
Everything is definitely seated properly, as I have been using it for several months without issue. In safe mode it runs perfectly fine. When I boot from my windows CD to format my HDD and re-install Windows it runs great. Once Windows is loaded from a fresh install it runs very quickly, like the good old days. However, once I connect to the internet to update SD, K and XP, it becomes sluggish. That is why I feel one of my roommates has downloaded something they should not have. Plus, everything was perfect up until about 2 weeks ago. Thanks for the help!!!

How do I check this for my SATA drives? whats the difference between UDMA and PIO? Thanks for the help!!!

I'd be interested on what a Memory check on your ram reports...

and just for future reference, just because something is only a few months old, doesn't mean it was pristine out of the box. I've had ram go bad on me in 2 months of using it.

It seems to me that you have a software issue. Make sure all of your disks are free of any badstuff. Try using msconfig to troubleshoot startup and services(or manually check your registry). Most likely you have a program compatibility issue or virus.

Good Luck

Have you tried without the 2nd drive connected? Next time you format leave the other drive disconnected and install everything and do all updates to see how it performs.

I will try to run a memtest if my computer allows it, what is the best to use and how long should i let it run? i do not have any floppy drives either, so anything in Windows or that can be put on a flash drive, thanks!!!
