after like 1 month from buying my PC, everything has turned slow, game loadings can take up to 10 mins while its 1 min maximum, crashes alot, freeze alot if sudden movement happens in a game if you got what i mean
i wanted to just format and see what happens but i just have the feeling its a hardware issue, so i came here to ask for opinions on what it could be, its a bit disappointing for a new configured pc to go dead so fast ._.
the specs are :
intel processor 3.0ghz quad extrame
motherboard gigabyte(forgot model name @.@)
4gb ram corsair 1066mhz
nvidia 8800 ultra nfx
western digital 150gb raptor 10,000rpm
if i have to take a guess what the hardware causing the problem is, then i guess its the HDD because it makes a very annoying sound and when i want to windows xp installation page (still in the dos) where you choose which drive to install in, it shows the western digital hdd as [unknown] for some reason
anyway ideas or suggestions are appreciated ._. thanks for reading
edit: forgot to mention, even windows logo screen loading at start up takes like 3-4 mins, used to be 5 seconds
