My PC has behaved strangely since Dec. 2007. It refused to start Windows on the 1st try. At first
, if I turned off the PC and let the main power switch turned on and waited for a while (5-10 mins), it seems that the PC was charged fully and would behaved normally for the whole time U used the PC. The whole scearnio would begin again after I turned off the PC at night and turned it on the next morning!
But these few days, the situation has worsen. Even if I left the main power switch turned on for a few mins, I couldn't get my PC to load Windows on the 1st attempt! I had to reset my PC 2 to 3 times to load Windows. Then after Windows XP has loaded, it seems my PC responded slowly to applications (Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, etc) in the beginning. If I waited long enough, the applications might pop up and run smoothly?! If the application didn't pop up, then I had to kill it and restart again. Sometimes by killing and restarting appliciations, the PC just hanged. Pls help. Thanks!
*** I bought this PC in Aug, 2006. The PC retailer had exchanged 1 pc of 512 ram within the 1st few days when I bought this PC. Because of motherboard failure, it has also been changed to the same model (more advance edition) in Sept. 2007.
