look here is the deal, my comp suddenly for no reason when i watched a avi file it clunked out on me.
THEN from then on every media file i watch it is slow and static like.
Severe symptoms sometimes is that the WHOLE computer slows down and the click sound when you open up a program is replaced with a static click (super slow) even opening up 'internet explorer' when this symptom happens is slow
i scanned the computer for viruses, adware/spyware, gone to safe mode to scan, scan registry etc etc.........no dice
then i thought i found the problem for some reason when everything is fine when i watch a movie on my 2nd hdd the symptoms kicks in, then watch it on my first harddrive its ok
so i thought beginning of hdd failure for my 2nd hdd, so i copy the same file over to my main hdd (C drive) then suddenly everything went slow SEVERE SYMPTOM so that threw my theory out of the window.......OR DID IT
cause after another registry scan, restarted the computer..........this time i did the same thing.........What the...? the movie plays in (C drive) but doesn't on my 2nd hdd
OH BTW when i watch it on my 2nd my cpu usage is VERY HIGH, but ok on my (C drive)
need help !!!
