I have just a purchased a brand new NEC DVD Burner but has caused my machine to run really slow.
I have a packard Bell about 5years old, 900mhz, 384mb RAM running windows xp pro, before the DVD burner I had a CD-RW which caused me no problems.
After fitting the DVD writer it has installed ok and able to copy DVD but when I come to switch on the computer after logging in. It take 5mins before I can lauch any applications. Even my wireless internet doesnt start. I am able to access files and folders and navigate my C Drive. I cant even lauch notepad after 5mins.
I cant even see Task manager and my processer doesnt look like its being hammered
After about 5mins eveything runs OK and back to normal.
Ive done the usual virus check, adware, computer cleanup just incase but now luck.
