The title of your thread states you added ram, was this at the same time as the HD? If so, the problem may be that the ram is not matched properly. Of course, there may be other issues.

When adding the RAM modules did you shut the computer down and pull the power cord out of the back then press the On|Off switch to drain off residual power from the motherboard, or wait several minutes for it to happen? If not it is possible to cause damage when adding/changing RAM or plugging cards into the motherboard. I learned that several years ago when we started changing to ATX motherboards.

You mention a "recover disk". Do you mean "Windows 7 installation disk"??

Or are you really using a "recovery disk" either provided by the machine vendor, or created by you, that when used on a new hard drive actually puts you back to "original factory"? This recovery disk did not include SP1?? That's a very old disk.

Since you already did it once, why not just try it all over again, just to see if that clears things up? Maybe there was a problem during the initial recovery installation. You probably haven't reinstalled much 3rd-party vendor software since your RAM/HDD upgrade, given your slow keyboard and machine performance. You certainly can't be any worse off after a second try than you are right now.


I would also use TASKMGR to see what, if any, processes are running that are consuming lots of CPU. Don't know what might be sucking up horsepower so as to degrade keyboard handling and overall system performance aside from some unknown task using LOTS OF CPU, or perhaps some malware or virus (which seems unlikely at this point in your reinstallation for a hardware upgrade).

But TASKMGR will at least point out if there is such a task running, which is using almost all of your CPU cycles.

it is the best buy recovery disk that came with the computer when i bought it yes it is old and yes i have tried to reinstall several times and i checked the TASKMGR and i am using 0% cpu with 15% physical memory

Go to the PERFORMANCE tab of TASKMGR, and then push the RESOURCE MONITOR BUTTON (at the bottom of the window), to produce the Resource Monitor second window.

Then select the DISK tab, and open the "Processes with disk activity" and "disk activity" areas below, to see what's going on and what process is doing disk I/O. Hopefully you will see something displayed that will give you a clue as to what's going on.

Do you mean you were able to open that second Resource Monitor window to display both the "processes with disk activity" as well as the "disk activity" sub-panes? Can you take a screenshot of what you see and post here?

I was simply foraging about for anything that might indicate why your system is performing slowly. Normally, that would suggest either some CPU-bound task running and sucking up all your machine horsepower (especially if it's running at a high priority), or perhaps some DISK-bound task running that is constantly reading/writing to your hard drive, or something else unknown. Resource Monitor is just one of the tools that possibly might display or expose such a situation, if it's actually present.

Certainly 0 CPU% and 15% memory suggests there's no problem with your added RAM. For example, if your machine really was super-tight on memory (because of some memory malfunction), trying to run Win7 with insufficient real memory would cause an enormous "paging/swapping" I/O situation, and that would show up through Resource Monitor.

So, just one more request... again in Resource Monitor, can you click on the MEMORY tab, and post a screenshot of what you see (like the following):
