Computer hardware causing slow performance

February 15, 2011 at 08:08:41
Specs: server 2003, 4/8
Hello ,
after a power cut-off on a computer with windows 7 , while installing an update (vista SP1 update)
my computer couldn't start up anymore, and i noticed all the information on the hard drive were unreadable anymore.
i changed the hard drive, and with a clean install of windows 7, the computer ran very slow, even while still booting from the CD.
after hours, the installation finished, and my windows experince index dropped from 5.5 to 1.
and it indicated the processor as the reason for the lowest grade.
although my intel quad core processor used to be 5.5 graded.

could that power surge drop down the processor speed that low ?

Have you checked your bios settings? Sounds like they went back to defaults that are not right for your cpu/memory

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

YES,
i did install all the drivers (which was a very long and slow process due to the performance of my computer)
and i upgraded my BIOS to the latest version available.

still running slow.

check your bios settings for the cpu, make sure the fsb and all other settings are correct for your particular cpu. your fsb should probably be @1066, but check your particular model.

i hate computers!

Your BIOS may have the option of 'set optimal settings', which should get you much closer to optimal than default settings if you are not sure of all of your settings, or you can clear your CMOS and let the BIOS detect your hardware from scratch.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
