1. Whenever I go to my computer it takes forever to find it, I get the little flashlight thingy forever.
2. I can't have anything plugged into the USB ports at the back of my computer otherwise it won't boot. When I pull out the USB plug, the computer continues its book up sequence.
3. When I use word or any other software, like photoshop, that looks at any drive before it loads, it hangs before loading for about five minutes.
According to the tech, they had issues with 4 of the last updates from windows and never got to install them.
My computer is a Gateway and the specs are
Microsoft XP Home edition
SP 2 installed
1 GIG ram
If you have any ideas, please let me know.
