    Very Very long story short. The power went out here again. it gave us computer problems. Now the only problem left is The loading screen on Win. XP Home Edition. A few programs also run slow. Its not a memory problem I have 149 GB total and have 136 free. My husband said something about the computer is running in PIO and should be in DMA (at least I think that what he called it) He switched it to use DMA when available, but no change Says he need to chage it in the Bios, but has no clue how to do that. Please help!!
    There are no Virus, Adware, Spyware, or temp files right now. I ran Disk clean up, Check drive for errors, defrag. I'm so confused. :eek:

    What exactly happens at the loading screen?

    By saying some programs run slow, I assume you mean that other than that and the loading screen, the computer runs normally?
