lagging while booting and installing windows

December 17, 2009 at 16:37:37
Specs: Windows Vista
I have a Asus x50sl laptop with 4GB ram, core 2 duo @ 2GHz and 256MB video card. everything was ok until one time I've turned on my laptop and it started acting strange. At first Vista did not respond to start some apps, then after restart it did not boot windows and when I tried to reinstall OS I've experienced lags during installation from boot cd. it took about 5 to 10 minutes for windows to respond while setup gathered info. Now I installed Win XP and drivers, but laptop still lags abnormally. I've checked my hard drive with manufacturer's software for bad clusters and erased all data, but still nothing changed.
What can be wrong?

Try memtest. Vista has it on the dvd, Be sure that the amount of ram on the display is what you are supposed to have.

Next might consider the drive makers tools for diag on drives. If not then see ultimate boot cd for generic tools.

Did ram total show correct?

Run cpu-z to see if cpu is running correctly.

Might be hung up on speed step or the cpu speed.


Might have to look to bios for any other settings that could affect performance.

Yes, ram total was correct. I've easyflashed bios and set to defaults but still nothing changed. It's like cpu doesn't bother to think fast, hdd led doesn't blink when it should, it just stops for a while and shows no visual or acoustical signs that it thinks, hdd stops, cd-rom stops, and that's it and all that happens just when installing windows. Pc runs fine on ubuntu however.
