Default slow!

i have a new intel pentium 4 3600 ghz on a new intel D925XBC with a new winfast PX7800GT and a SATA WD 80GB HDD and a new kingston 1g 667mhz DDR2 CL5.

at first i thought it was overheating so i bought a AS5 paste
but that did'nt help
i then re-installed (twice!) Windows XP on a formatted drive!
but that did'nt help either
i also ran memtest and a scan for the HDD from WD but they didnt find anything
i ran scandisk, spyware etc. scans
but that dont help!

now i keep running defrag, but it dont seem to help either...
it's still so very slow!

my USB mouse is not recognized, but has the red light on...
i tried other USB devices (Ipod,mp3) and i'm affraid they're gone too!!!
cuz i tried them on different comp, but there, it says not recognized...
and i'm affraid to test other devices...!
could this be connected?

if you found some xp disc on the street for $20 it might be corrupted or have a virus or something. go to system properties (press windowskey and pause/break at the same time) and post what it says there at the bottom (should say intel pentium 4..)

Your problem may come from a BIOS setting. If you have a P4 3.6GHZ, nd you have it at 3.4GHZ, you definatelly have a problem with the BIOS settings. As for your USB, I'd check for your drivers.

BTW, by slow, you mean how much slow is it?
