Hello all.. Hope someone can help me with some recent problems I haven't been able to solve myself yet. A couple of months ago I changed from an Intel computer to an AMD computer, and while perfomance in games and other applications have been great, I feel I got more stability problems and odd Windows behaviour. The most annoying right now, is turtle speed boot, cold boot always takes ages - anywhere from 40secs to well over a minute or two. Booting up to the Windows boot screen flies, but when the black screen starts (with the moving blue bar) everything is slow. It can take 50 rounds, freeze for a short period, run a little more and either go into windows or I have to restart the computer once more, funny thing is that it boots within seconds after such a restart? Stuff I have tried to do: 1 - Updated hardware drivers. 2 - Frequent run of diskfrag tool (Diskeeper) 3 - Frequent run of Spybot and Adaware (also always updated) 4 - Downloaded all win updates 5 - Removed a lot of running processes (according to various tweak resources) 6 - Cleaned computer for cookies and bad regs with Crap Cleaner 7 - Scanned for virus a lot of times with Avast 8 - Tried all sorts of settings in bios 9 - Tried Bootvis performance tool - no help, and it gives me errors when it tries to load the .bin file after a trace, so I can't see what is going on. I get the following error when trying to load the .bin file: Number of physical drives=0, tracefile got invalid system configuration. But when it works it flies - playing FEAR, CONDEMNED, OBLIVION etc with no problems.. Hardware see sig. Any ideas?
