Dell Dimension 4400 still with problems in WinXP

  Giggle n' Bits 00:24 27 Jun 2003

ok, sorted out the Unmountable_Boot_Volume" Error thanks to Spikeychris but now found problems when in windows XP as follows but some spec first:-
128MB PC2100 DDR, Intel P4 1.7GHz (400MHz FSB), running WinXP Home.

The problems:-

1. Boot-up and Shut-down takes forever, each-way so slow I could go and make a coffee while waiting for it to shut down or start and settle into the desktop.

2. I have noticed only 1 comm port in device manager is this correct or normal ?

3. I have noticed the Secondary IDE has the jumper caps on the DVD Drive and the CD Wrt bot set as CSL erhh is this wrong ?

4. Can anyone tell me the correct settings for the Performance-Paging file settings, I tried uping them with bad results then put them on Windows to manage it. What is the XP default or better.

I list all 4 here as they may be linked to problems.

Any help please ?

audo card myself.

Thing is I don't know if it still a software or a Hardware problem.

the x2 optical drives on secondary channel both set to CSL seems wrong but surely they haven't made this mistake.

Anyone who can help appreciated.
