My system takes like 5 minutes or so to fully load. And when i try to log onto my computer games it starts sticking and i get repeating sound from the games It doesnt matter wich game they all do it. I try to go to my windows live email program and my mouse will stick i can only guess its freezing for some wierd reason then restarting. I dont know why either. After i try and run my games, most times i cant read my back up d: . (350 gig western digital) which mostly only has music on it from before i formatted and reinstalled xp onto the c:
I have a dell dimension 4600i
cpu is a p4 3.40 ghz
memory is 2.5 gig
c: is 80gig with 31.4 gig free space on it.
direct x 9.0c
xp home ed 5.1, build 2600
even typing this out my machine lagged like 6 times. i call it lag because i dont know what else to call it.. it just pauses for a few seconds and starts back up againn. Please help.. I know my machine is old I've had it going on 4 years in june. but it still works. Please help.
