My pc is very slow, i suspect the hdd

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Hi what up guys !!
I've just got my new parts, i did a little upgrade, went from ddr2 to ddr3, changed the CPU from phenom x2 to my present. But i cant really see the difference. My pc is slow like a 3 leg mentally retarded turtle. I suspect the hdd is making the whole slow-thing, because i got a 5.9 system rating- the lowest score in my win7. My other parts are 7.5, 7.6. Do you think my hdd is draggin the system down? What would you recommend me? Thanks

Did it first start being slow as soon as you upgraded everything?

My HDD is 5.9 also but my system is not slow, maybe defrag your HDD and scandisk. If that doesnt work, i think you should reinstall window 7

Screenshot your task manager with your list of processes. I have a feeling once this is posted, your solution will be exposed quickly.

My RAIDED WD Caviar Blacks 640gb HDD that are short-stroked are 5.9.

Your going to have to give more information than that. When/where do you experience the most performance issues? Virus checks/defrags and basic stuff like seem to be the issue.

Don't worry too much about Windows 7's rating system. It's biased against mechanical drives

Another good question is.....

Well that hard drive is fairly good as far as mechanical drives go, but is your computer the same as it was before the upgrade or is it worse?

if its really slow, you need to do a clean installation, its usually something stupid like chipset drivers having issues, things like that.
