My laptop computer was on during a power outage. After I reboot, the computer works but at an unbelievable slow speed. Everything it does will take more than 100 times longer. I reformat the hard drive (curiously, that happened in normal speed) and tried to re-install Win2000. I observed that during the first phase of installation, it progressed in normal speed. However, right after the window started, it began to crawl. I assumed that it has something to do with the way the win2000 preforms certain I/O function that is different than let's say DOS. Any idea what happened to me and how to fix it?

I'd start by resetting the BIOS to factory defaults, it sounds like something is scrambled there.
