Someone else had the same problem. Changing some settings in bios did the trick for him or her..

Hope it helps

Default Hi

for my MOBO there is BIOS upgrades
but I was told from www.webhostingtalk.com to not do them as it can screw something up, is that true.

Do you recommend me doing a BIOS upgrade....

Question Mmm...

lokodezine: If it's working, why fix it? I just do BIOS upgrades on older motherboards or non-working motherboards. Most of the time to detect new hard drives on old motherboard.

Maybe flashing the bios (just remove the battery for 10 secs) will do the trick...

Are you always using virtual memory? That can increase CPU usage.

Question ... has questions

Are you running any distributed computing software like folding@home or SETI?

Have you scanned for viruses and/or spyware?

Have you installed all your OS updates?

I am just worried my pc has slowed down tremedensouly -

I got 1 gig of ram so I could run multiple stuff simotaneously but now it takes a while for me to load just another internet Explorer or anything and my CPU is overloaded especially when running a program like photoshop and I just did reformatt my hardrive...

Also my dvd player has shot out but that is in a different post!
