But!! It sure has been "buggy" ever since. Once the installation was complete, I immediately noticed my mouse had a "skip" to it's movements; so I reinstalled my Logitech mouse software. Also, on each restart, chkdsk wanted to check my C and D drives, but never found anything wrong. I eventially ran chkdsk / R [drive], rebooted and it chkdsk found some errors (it corrected error in index $I30 in file 5). They were repaired and that no longer appears at each restart.
And then I started noticing audio skips (they could have been occuring all along, but I know I didn't have them with XP Home Edition). I uninstalled and reinstalled my motherboard software and the sound drivers. I have reinstalled my video card software/drivers. I have rebooted my cable modem, rebooted my Linksys 4 port router, turned my hardware accelaration for my soundcard to "None" and rebooted, and still I have skips in my audio.
I notice the audio skips when I start a program (namely Quicken), but also when I run a Quicktime file, or Windows media file. And now that I am looking for it, the video is skipping also.
The only error code I get in Event viewer is "The ALi PCI to USB Enhanced Host Controller service failed to start due to the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " It's Event ID is 7000. Admittedly, I can't find the cause of this error.
Other observations: My mouse seems to still have a minor skip. Adobe Photoshop CS2 seems to run a bit poorer than it did with XP Home. The OS has not crashed, nor does it have any glitches that show up in event viewer, but the whole computer seems to have taken a hit in efficiency.
Ultimately, I gotta get this fixed, and then I'd like to do the 3 Gb switch in order to utilize all of my RAM, but at this point, I want this fixed first.
I hope this is enough information (First Post here) and I appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
