My computer hauls ass but recently after the bios does its thing and the windows xp black screen comes up ... and the little blue knight rider type meter is on ..it takes forever now. I'm not sure why this is. Before...the meter would go continually but now it goes for a bit then stops ..goes for a bit then stops .... and watching the HD activity light it only seldom blinks when this is happening. Then ..walla it loads in a hurry and everything is back to normal. What gives here?
