built a new system and what a nightmare!
asus m4a77td pro
xfx geforce 220gt graphics
corsair 4gb 1333
maxtor 6L250so 250gb sata
installed a clean install from dvd 64 bit build version 7600. installs pretty quick really.
first nightmare of a problem is the graphics drivers
! when i install and reboot (196.21) come back to windows no mouse and only the background picture. i spent hours trying to sort this problem in the end i put the card in the second pci-e slot and it installed drivers again and all was fine with that part.
had loads of problems with lagging and slow install and uninstalling so i decided to do another fresh install and guess what same problem with the drivers now on pci-e slot 2! so i put the card in pci-e 1 again and low and behold success again.
installing anything is really slow!! lots of cpu useage and lagging. adobe cs4 took over an hour to install! where as usually it would take 20 mins maybe a bit more! installing antivirus took 20 mins where as normally it would take less time.
i have another machine totally different spec tho core 2 duo 3.0ghz geforce 8400gs 4gb ram windows 7 64 bit build 7600 and that runs fine!
i get duplicate processes in the task manager when running setups for programs upto 4 sometimes. the processor seems to be going mental on a setup yet its doing nothing on the setup. doing setups in safe mode are quicker though.
ive had a look at a few posts on this forum found nothing that works so far. fire away with your suggestions and questions i have tried lots of things i cant remember what ive tried overall.
