Hi For years I have sailed along quite happily with a PIII 600 and 1 GB of memory. This weekend I went for it and upgraded to a P4 2.0 with asrock p4vt8 motherboard and 1.5 GB of memory, otherwise the same system (windows 2000 SP4, Matrox G200 4 monitors, twin 40gb HDD). It was a clean (repartion/format) install. I now wish I hadn't bothered. All operations are slower - 2.5 minutes to boot, slower window minimizes etc. And to top it all when I have the 2nd HDD attached the computer sometimes freezes up. Is there something I can do to check if there is a problem or perhaps there is a piece of freeware that I can use to check my system. Thanks for any help.
