For some reason whenever the switch on my surge protector is pressed resulting in it being turned off n on my computers POST is very slow for a couple days then resumes normal activity but this time around somebody i have no clue pressed the button and now my computer takes no lie about 6 mins to load up. I power on my computer and i get a black screen with the energy star logo the type of motherboard i have installed is displayed and from then on i must wait 6 mins and when it does load windows runs soo slow. web pages dont load as fast anymore, downloading more then 3 files freezes my mozilla for 2 mins then continues the downloading. Im fed up and I need help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :whistling:

Make sure you have all Microsoft updates.

Type chkdsk c: /f /r in the run prompt.

Check and see if your hard drive is stuck in PIO mode and not DMA go to "Start">>"Run" type in devmgmt.msc look for IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers double click then double click on "Primary IDE Adapter" go to the advanced tab and look at the "Current Transfer Mode" if it says PIO then that is your problem. To fix it go to the "Driver" tab and hit uninstall, then reboot and Windows will reinstall it with the proper settings.
