Okey, I have no clue what's going on here... I'm really starting to think it's more of a hard drive problem then what I'm running on.. Okey, about 20 days ago (about 5 days before I formated), it started to really lag and slow down and such and it was almost to the 6th month = format time (cuz I normally format my system every 6 month cuz that's when there's alot of junk that just needs to get away), so I started making back ups and such... here we are, about 15 days later after the format it's still freezes and lags like a mother.... Since I already know there's nothing wrong with my processor or RAM, I'm starting to think that hard drive is just beginning to be really old. Do you think if I switch my 40 gig with my 80 gig drive, do you think the problem well just go away?? DAMN THIS MOTHER *radio edit* any helpful replays would be appratied.
