Re: Friend's new build extremely slow
Sorry for the lack of information.
All I know is the CPU is a Q9300 and he's running Windows 7.
I spoke to him a few minutes ago and this is exactly what he told me:
"It's fine now. For some reason nothing is lagging anymore. And also, the only things lagging are WINDOWS programs... ex. Internet Explorer, WMP, Defrag, Disk Cleanup, etc.. When I open up Firefox, it loads up perfectly and quickly."
Apparently it is all fine now, but I told him to keep his eye on it. Also, I told him to download Coretemp and check his temperatures... I had a hunch about high temps.
This is while computer was playing WMP and on Firefox; nothing more.
Maybe this is an overheating problem...
