blah blah, ibposcomputer Anyways, i just built this computer about 2 months ago. e6650, asus p5k mobo 2gb corsair 800 mhz 7300 gt video card 3 x 200gb SATA drives. nothing is Oc'd, just put it all together and started her up, last week i reinstalled vista as it was being buggy for some reason. It works perfect on my other computer. Anyways lately it just seems so slow, vista has some built in CPU meters. Very often will it ever say im using 100% of my cpu or mem. anyways heres a screenshot of what im talking about, if your using vista you might recognize it. I went to "my computer", it literally took over 60 seconds to show my drives. Yet the little sidebar gauges show barely anything going on. What gives? The status bar on the my computer window isnt even half way. In green Why is it so slow, it seems like its not using the cpu like it should to get processes done. one of the sidebar widgets actually shows the two cores.
