I even tried installing off the cd that came with the graphics card..when browsing on the net everything is super slow and choppy..but i noticed sone pages with no graphics scrolls up and down smooth but when i go to a page with graphics it doesnt... i have the latest shockwave flash and i made sure i installed the right drivers for the graphics card.. even when im off the net when i go to the start button it comes up weird and not smooth and normal.. does anybody have any suggestions as in why this is happening? thanks soooo much!!

That Raidmax is a very low quality power supply and would be suspect here. I would definitely replace it with something else and see how that works.

Thanks for the additional information Theoneandonly55 :thumbsup:

I see a few issues in the Speccy report I`m afraid :(

Issue #1
+5V: 3.069 V This is too low.
+12V: 13.816 V This is too high.
This will not do any of your hardware any good and we should investigate this further with further testing, this may not be the crux of the problem however it will not help.
Please see the PSU tolerance table below for what the readings should be.

Issue #2
The HDDs.
WDC WD3200AAJB-00J3A0, your C: drive
Size: 298 GB
Used Space: 267 GB (90%)
Free Space: 30.1 GB (10%)

WDC WD2500AAJB-00J3A0, your D: drive
Used Space: 231 GB (100%)
Free Space: 1.83 GB (0%)

The lack of free storage space is 99.99% certain to be the cause of the issue, this because there is nowhere for any new data to be written to on the HDDs and you are risking total failure of both HDDs and the loss of all data on the both drives, please see my canned text below regarding this.

Please note that in order to avoid data corruption and/or mechanical HDD failure for data only HDDs you must always have a minimum of 10% of the HDDs overall storage capacity available as free space and between and 15 and 20% of a HDDs overall storage capacity available as free space if the OS is on it, the free space allows for information to be copied to and from the drive efficiently.

Not having the above can render a computer inoperable if the HDD concerned has the OS on it due to the MBR (Master Boot Record) becoming damaged/corrupt, please see information @ http://pcsupport.abo...sterbootrec.htm

Issue #3
Windows Update
AutoUpdate: Disabled
When was the last time that you updated your OS.
Are you aware of the risk of malware attack by not keeping the OS fully updated, this because you do not have all of the security updates that have been released.

In addition to the above I note that you do not have an optical drive, this will make it more difficult to free up some storage space on the two HDDs, this because it is more efficient and economical to burn the data to disk/s as opposed to backing up to USB thumb drives, unless you have an external USB HDD with 1TB of free space on it.
