Hi everyone,

I just did a clean install (converting from FAT32 to NTFS).... it now seems my system runs slower and the CPU usages is VERY high.... even at 100% when to progs are open. I did all the updates from microsoft and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions.

Thanks,

Steve

How much ram you got? What programs you loading? How fast is your computer? Need more info.........


Things you can do to speed it up, buy more ram, defrag often, get rid of useless crap, defrag agian, limit programs in your start up folder to what you really need.

Here is the info.... I just reformated and formated from FAT32 to NTFS .... (things ran well on FAT32)

512 MB RAM
1 GHZ Athalon
40 gig (NTFS)

Apps running.... AIM, photoshop...

Now mind you, when I was using FAT32 I was able to have a bunch of progs open (photoshop, AIM, explorer, pagemaker...) with no noticable lag....

Thanks again,

Steve

not exactly sure what the cycles you are refering to are... is it the mem usage under proccesses?

if you look at my task manager, currently System Idle Process is using cycles. about 96%

Note System Idle Process will return to 0% if you start doing something.


You might also want to do a Defrag and ScanDisk if you used the Convert FAT32 to NTFS option in the installer.

steveklebs - In Task Manager - Processes Tab - under the CPU heading - what is using the cpu cycles (what has the highest percent)? You said the cpu is running at 100% - what makes you say that - where did you see that if not in Taks Manager Processes?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
