Re: Good PC which worked perfectly now lags a lot on startup...
Hi again Mak,
I'll try to give the answers to the unstated things, even if you have no answers for me. I accept that you may no longer be able to help, so just ignore this post if you feel that I don't understand what you are saying or if you feel that you have said what needs to be said already.
Regarding the Logitech software. Yes, I had them before, when I had no issues. I guess I can try and see what happens if I startup my system with the Logitech stuff turned off?
I didn't perform an sfc check, but I did do a chkdsk, I believe I stated that earlier in this thread.
I ran memtest and I got 5 passes with no errors, so I don't think my RAM is going faulty. I don't know about my harddrive, but doesn't chkdsk check that? If so, then I have no problems because chkdsk seemed to suggest things were fine. I don't know about the GPU either, but as I said earlier, I changed my fan back to the older one I had when things were fine, so I doubt it has anything to do with that, yet you know a lot more than me so you can make a more clear judgement on that.
I don't do much on the machine daily. I play games, watch movies & tv shows, use common software such as WLM, Outlook, Microsoft Office for school, surf the net with google chrome, I don't browse unsafe websites. I haven't had viruses for a while. I've suffered a lot in the past from viruses so I believe I learned my lesson.
I've had this hardware since September 2008, so that makes 15 months, right?
I don't have many programs either. To name some would be WLM, Microsoft Office 2010 (beta), google chrome, football manager 2010, counter strike source, call of duty 4 modern warfare, the logitech software I spoke of earlier, iTunes, QuickTime, AnyDvd, Imgburn, Kaspersky 2010, CCleaner...I'm at school so I'm only going off the top of my head, there are more but not that many since I didn't have the chance to install everything yet since my last format and I might reformat if I cannot find another soluton, so I'm waiting to see how this plays out.
Perhaps I got upset, but I sincerely believe that I am open to any suggestions now and hopefully I can get a bit more help. If you don't think there's anything we can do anymore, just ignore this post.
But if so, I would be happy to know what I would need to download from the following things on the Asus website:
-Chipset Version 126.96.36.1999
-SoundMax Audio Driver for win7 64bit (guessing this isn't needed?)
-Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet Driver V188.8.131.52 for win7 64bit
-Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager Driver V184.108.40.2063 for 64bit Windows 7.(WHQL) Intel(R) AHCI/RAID Driver Disk for 64bit Windows 7
-Intel(R) Matrix Storage Manager V220.127.116.113 for Windows 7 and Windows 64bit 7.(WHQL)
Tell me to do so, and I'll download whatever you tell me is needed from above. Tell me to do so, and I will startup my system without the logitech items, or without any of the items on the list. Tell me to do so, and I will run an sfc /scannow check.
If you feel I am still missing some of your points, ignore this post and give up on me, or tell me so I can try to get everything you want, but I hope I was able to answer the things you questioned, and made everything clear enough...
