Re: Xp Home slow to startup
The asrock dual board is this the dual gfx and ram or just dual gfx?
Have you looked on the Asrock site to see if the card is properly supported?
If its got the dual ram run memtest to make sure the systems happy with the ram.
So this machine hasnt been run and no drivers installed or did the slow down come on after a while? Can you get into safe mode and edit the start up ?
Sounds to me like the windows install has gone screwy.Did you download the newest drivers or run the cd?might be worth reinstalling armed with newest drivers.To stop a forced reboot right click my comp select properties then advanced/start up and recovery and untick auto restart. You will get an error message then if it crashes
