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?

Default Re: slow!

how can i verify that?
as for the USB i did, i've reinstalled the intel desktop drivers, and i'm affraid to lose a another device!

and as for the slow...
to be honest, i really think it's getting a wee bit faster
though i've been defraging like crazy today...think it might be it?
i know it sounds stupid...
but...
how can i verify this aswell?!

Defraging puts your drive cleaner. What's the XP Service pack?

Well, what edition is it?

To verify your BIOS settings, you will need to press Delete (Del key) as soon as you power up your PC. Refer to your manual on what type of settings you have.. Try loading BIOS defaults.

OK, I'd look in your Device Manager, and look for any yellow Question Marks.

ok theres a problem if u said your proc is 3600 ghz i think u meant mhz but it should be 3.60 ghz not 3.40 that might make it a little bit slower. this may be caused by a virus or spyware. ok anyway did you build this computer or did you get it like off dell or something

Default Re: slow!

so, (finally) i've checked the BIOS and there it says.....
3.40 GHZ
800 MHz
533 MHz
weird...cuz it still says in windows 3.40 and 3.40...
what should i do??!!
anyway the comp is still slow!!!

i've loaded the default on the BIOS and re-inserted the BIOS jumpper
and the USB still isn't working!

i've read that my RAM might not be "comfertable" woth my board...
what do you think?

Hmm, I think there could possible be a problem there

Your memory has a FSB of 533MHz and not 800MHz with the CPU. Although this usually creates no problems, the fact that there not in sync might make it possible that it's the problem.

Tell me, is the memory installed at 2x512MB dimms, and is it dual channel. If so, I recomend if you can in the BIOS setting the memory speed from 533MHz to 400MHz. Dual Channel would put this effectively to 800MHz therefore in syncronisation with your CPU FSB.

It's something I would do anyway, but I'm doubt it'll be the cause of the problem.
