    hi everybody,i run on windows xp sp2,over mercury pvm7 motherboard,intel p4 2.66ghz processer.756mb ram,2hdds one is 80GB,ANOTHER 160gb
    i reinstalled my os 3 weeks back,but for one week,the problem came,
    problem is when i try to copy or move files between partions of 80gb old hard disc(in which i installed os),it takes really long,say 2gb,its taking 20-25min and cpu meter in task manager shownig 100% cpu usage
    but among the partions of new 160gb one,it almost normal
    and also when i try to play any video file of larger bitrate,it not smoothly playing,it jerky,with pauses of few millisec for evey 3 or 4 sec
    and when try to rec from tv tuner card also its also jerky,means it pauses at some frames at reg, intervals
    when i run any app such as fairuse wizard,which consume heavily,strange is that download at flashget are also stopping at 2-3 sec intervals,when i stop these heavy cpu usage programs,downloads r normal
    [​IMG]


    previousely evertything is fine

    all of a sudden it came i guess after i inserted a audio cd for ripping,which frozen the pc for about a min or two,but worked fine later


    PLS help me to come out this prob

    Those are Windows updates--you should install them.

    ...and you should shut down the download programs while you do it, and reboot when prompted.

    Defrag and run Disk Cleanup (both in start, all programs, accessories, system tools) on your 80 gig drive. You must have at least 15% free space on the drive to defrag--If you have less than 15 %, defrag will not run, and that would also help to explain the issues with the drive. Capturing and indexing video is indeed very processor and memory intensive-you risk buffer underruns if you're downloading and moving files at the same time.

    How much RAM is installed? What processor? What type and speed of internet connection? What video card? When you reinstalled windows, did you make sure your drivers are the latest-especially for the video card?

    Also check the transfer mode on the primary ide channel--start, run, type devmgmt.msc , click ok, click the plus next to 'ide/atapi devices', double click 'primary ide channel' and make sure tranfer is set to 'DMA if available' . PIO mode will cause your issue as well.

    Run the Disk Cleanup and Defrag--all partitions.

    If those don't help, we'll try something else.

    I'm sorry it came to that...make sure you update all drivers and operating system, antivirus and antispyware--and I'd suggest not reinstalling the bit-torrent and other file sharing applications. They're risky, probably illegal, and likely the source of some of your issues. Good luck, coolbuddy.
