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.
