|I am having problems with the same machine as of here:|
Basically, I had a 13 GB Hard Drive and decided to put a Maxtor 52049U4 Drive in it for a replacement, hoping it would speed up the computer. Whenever I reinstalled Windows on this computer, Setup is extremely slow.
It copies files from the CD-ROM to the Hard Drive, but then freezes for 2 minuites and then copies again and freezes. Then it told me it cannot copy the file. After that, I tried a different CD-ROM Drive and it does the same thing and this time, it managed to copy all the files, but when booting into Windows, it was EXTREMELY SLOW!
I even put back the old 128 MB of memory in this computer and still I am having the same problem, so memory wasn't an issue.
I read on a website that I should change from compatibility mode to normal mode, but my Pentium 3 System doesn't have that feature.
I tried different Cables and found it didn't help. I have a PC 66 IDE Card in it as well, I tried to connect to that, the same issue persists.
What should I do?
