Interrupts	21.00	

Until we get Interrupts down to a normal value (under 1.4) it's going to be slow.  If it's not a program running under services or startup in msconfig then it's a driver.  One that doesn't run in Safe Mode.  The video is a possibility.  I think if you boot into the Safe Mode menu and choose the low resolution option it disables the video driver and uses the standard vga driver.  If Interrupts goes down to a normal level then you need it  new driver.  It's possible that the sound driver is at fault.  Try disabling it.

Search for

device manager

hit Enter

 

This should bring up the device manager which lists all of the drivers.

 

Each driver has an option (right click ) to  disable, remove or update it. Sometimes removing a driver and rebooting will fix problems as Windows will reinstall the driver.   You can also select the Properties option which may have an option on the Driver page to rollback the driver to the last driver.

in Device Manager I noticed 2 yellow warnings:

See attached snapshot. Could be this is the cause of all troubles?

I've tried to find online the driver for the PCI Flash Memory, but no driver could be found.

Possible I suppose:
 

Look for yellow flagged devices.  Right click on one and select properties then click on the Details tab.  Change Property to Hardware IDs.  Click on the top one then right click and copy.  Paste that into a reply.  Repeat for all yellow flagged devices.

I have attached the driver for the first one.  Download, Save and then right click and Extract All, Extract.  It should give you a folder.  Int he folder is a setup.exe file.  Run that to install the driver.

 

The other one is too big to attach so you will have to download it yourself:

I can't test these as I no longer have an XP but Avast says they are clean.

 

Doubt that they will fix your problem tho.  One is a card reader and one is a webcam.

The card reader driver got installed OK. No more yellow sign for PCI.

I downloaded the webcam driver , followed all the installation prompts. Rebooted the laptop  But the yellow flag sign is still there in Device Manger.

And as I see the performance of the laptop is still very slow. You were correct , it didn't fix my problem

Generally the high interrupts are caused by a driver that is active not one that isn't there.

 

Did you try the low resolution option in Safe Mode to rule out the video driver?

 

Also try disabling any driver you can live without such as sound or game
