I just bought a new system with the following specs: P4 3.0 GHz with HT (Prescott) Gigabyte GA915GB Duo MB 512 MB DDR 400 MHz RAM 80GB Segate SATA HDD XFX GeForce FX 6600 PCI-E Card I have installed Win XP with SP1. The Problem seems to be the boot up and shut down speed in the new comp. It takes more time than my old machine to boot up in to the Welcome Screen and the same amount of time to Shut down. I wonder if this Prob could be with the Virtual Memory or something? Can u help me out?
