Hey all, it's my first time posting here in many years. I was wondering if anyone can help, i just setup a new pc with the Abit ip35-e, core 2 duo at 3 ghz , 2 gig crucial ballistix tracer 800mz mem, Samsung 500 gig hd. The problem i'm having is that the machine takes 2-3 minjutes to post, slowly showing ram, detecting hard drives etc. Then when XP starts to load i get a blank screen for another 2-3 minutes , then when the XP logo appears, the progress bar slowly moves for another minute or so until Xp loads fairly normally. Once Xp loads it behaves fairly normally, except when start menu items are moused over they slowly materialize. 3d Mark 06 ran normally , but when i ran Unreal Tournament ( the original, from '98) last night it ran in super slo-mo, very strange.
Now i've built dozens of pcs in the last 15 years, and have never seen this type of behavior. Does anyone have any suggestion? What would cause this type of behavior? Thanks in advance
