    ok, my problem is my 3dmark 2001 se score went down almost 1000 points, :( , everything was working great before, the only thing i remember doing that might of influenced my scores is converting my HDD from FAT32 to NTFS..... can that be the problem??? i noticed an overall system performance drop, like before, at startup everything would load up fast (the system tray would be loaded up in 2 secs) now it takes about almost a minute for everything to load up once i see my wallpaper.... keep in mind that before i did a clean install with NTFS and everything worked great, so i know its not the file system (ie FAT32 vs NTFS) i think it could be converting the HDD's altogether, ..... one more thing that might of been the problem is, under SYSTEM properties, i went to PERFORMANCE TAB and changed my MEMORY/PROCESSOR utilization tfrom APPLICATIONS to BACKGROUND and APPS to SYSTEM CACHE.... i switched them back to the way they were but it onbly gave me a couple hundred back.... iwent from 9515 to 8600 points..... ALMOST 1000 point drop.... WAAAAAAAAAA.... someone help, thx in advance,

    ps.... i dont see a huge performance drop in games, maybe every once in awhile a lil slow down but thats it, i think it could be a bug with 3dmark 2001 se, dont find it too consistent, btw i defrag my system regularly ( 2x a week).....

    ok a lil better.....

    ok my pc no longer takes forever to load up on start up, (i dont know why) i was messing around with some settings and it works fine, but now, my score is 8500..... it keeps going down?? i dunno what i did, i had such a great setup before, i should of never converted to NTFS :mad: , oh well, now i get more lag than usual when i play games, MADDEN 2k3, GTA3, etc ..... these games never lagged before..... i tried re-installing the VIA 4.41's and 4.42's and even NVIDIA 30.82's and 31.00's and still get crappy scores,..... i am going to put my 1000 points on a milk carton soon if i can't figure out this f#$@'ing problem.....
