Dear all,

I am regular user of this forum.
as usual i m here once again due to some problem.

i am checking a toshiba laptop because it is very slow.

i make clean install of OS with very few data.

but still it is very slow.

is it becuase of RAM or Hard disk problem.

when i set counters in Performance window in WinXP.
i saw that average disk qued length is touching 100% and also memory pages/sec also touching 100%
what do you mean by this.

any ideas.

Hi noor parker!

Did you install all of the drivers for the laptop? Most notably the chipset and video drivers?

Download Speedfan (The download link is in the first line of the second paragraph), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
