I dont know if i did it correctly but the first week after installing windows it was fine but now i have put some games and software on it it keeps being realy slow, when i open a program it takes a long time... and the mouse is realy laggy, when i boot up windows i have to wait atleast about an hour before it gets past the windows loading screen, i also have seen a blue screen sometimes. i have run adaware scan and avg and avg spyware but has no found anything serious. The graphics... sometimes when i open msn messenger it comes up with a screen of colors and i can also see a faint line going down the middle of the screen but when i open a new windows it changes... it goes bent. Do i need to install any other drivers e.g the motherboard, im not dont if there is one but im too sure. Please someone help or give any advise... any at all.

Without knowing the details of your system, all we can do is guess, but you should have loaded the Chipset driver first, then all other drivers. From your description, I'd look for the most recent drivers for the Video Card.

GAmes will often put HS in your startup list . . click on Start . . Run . . type msconfig . . click on the Startup tab to see what all is running at startup . . you can probably disable everything other than your anti-virus and firewall ( if third party )

That is an ASRocks board . . it has onboard video which should automtically be disabled when a AGP Video card is inserted . . might check the BIOS to be sure it is.

You can download the newest drivers here

Have you checked the startup list to see what all is running at boot?

Probably time to call in the big kids . . Suggest you post a HiJack This! log in the security forum..

This from Derek in that forum:

Getting Hijackthis and installing it correctly

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Paste the log in your next reply.
If you haven't already posted then start a new thread in the security forum
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
