The computer itself did not come with a driver disc or anything so I had to manually gather the drivers and install it after the fresh install Windows XP.
Everything seemed fine until after about a couple of days , the usb ports started acting up, turing on and off randomly, sometimes in 15-20 minute intervals and games taking much much longer than usual to startup ( like PES 2011 ) . I initially thought that it was maybe due to the graphics card driver being out of date but that was not the case as it was. Another problem that I found was that I couldn't click into the game controllers option in the control panel, it would open it up, freeze and give me a rundll error. I have no idea what is going on. The comptuer was fine before the reformat. Games ran very fast ( PES took about 1 sec to load up now it takes about 1 minute to finally get the game running into the main menu ). Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
