Terrible slow internet connection after installing SP2

Hi guys, hope you can help me out with this: I have my system running for two years now with Windows XP Pro. No problem ! After upgrading to SP1: no problem ! After upgrading to SP2: very slow internet connection ! I have read articles with lots of people having same problems (terrible slow internet after upgrading to XP2 in combination with KX600) but unfortunately NO SOLUTION. This looks like a MoBo failure. I have done everyting: clean install, you name it. Please help me; I do not know what to anymore.

Re: Terrible slow internet connection after installing...

If you are sure it is a motherboard problem relating to the on board ethernet connection, purchase a PCI slot ethernet card and see if using the card manufacturers drivers are better than the motherboard ethernet drivers. Although i'm not sure how a slow connection is the motherboard problem, it maybe that it's SP2 thats the problem. Have you checked the driver that is used for the onboard ethernet connection, it maybe you need to re-install original motherboard ethernet driver you got with it.

No network connection for windows xp

Hello kenji, hi, it would really help if you could add more information about the no connection problem, anyway there are several reason why you have no connection;
  1. Bad Lan card, or built in lan port,
  2. Lan card device driver not properly installed, check your driver CD.
  3. loose lan cable. check using a lan cable tester device.
  4. bad router or router setup.
  5. bad dsl or modem setup.
  6. bad telephone connection. check also telephone cable.
  7. no internet service, call your ISP.
  8. if you are using a wireless lan card, check the device.
  9. bad Operating system installation.
  10. check your connectivity setup, is it enabled?
Go through each from one to ten, see which one is the fault.

Hi, my system not working properly.

I don't think this is a BIOS problem. Sound more like you need to re-load windows and start from scratch. Make sure your USB is turned on in the BIOS.

Hi my name ia rahul from india,mumbai my pc brnd new amd proccer,256mb ram,asus motherboard the problem is whic ever i install the softwae the system gets hangup

hi welcome to fixya! what particular system you are installing, is it XP sp1, XP sp2, or Vista? Configure first the CMOS before doing the the OS installation. Set everything to its default configuration before running the process. 256 MB of memory for Vista is not enough it is good only for XP sp1 or sp2. See to it that your HDD was properly connected and its not loosen. If still the problem persist, change the ATA HDD cable (it looks like a ribbon in color gray) into a brand new one, sometimes its one of the cause of hang-ups and change your CMOS battery also. If still you experience hang-ups feel free to ask a help from a service center near you. Good Day!

RAM Speed

There are many things that govern a computer's speed,

1 The speed of the Hardware IE the Processor, Memory and Graphics Card all contribute to this, (It is assumed that this is working well in whatever configuration you have)

2 The Requirements of your software....Win XP SP2 REQUIRES a minimum of 512 Mb Mem to run properly (if it has less than this it will run very slowly even with only basic Applications installed IE Norton/Mcafee Antivirus )

3 Software problems... Spyware / Virus infections affect the speed of your PC as the "Steal" Proccessing power for their own ends, I have personally seen PCs with terrible Spyware infections that they can barely operate at all, to remedy this I would reccomend downloading the free Spyware tool "Spybot Search and Destroy", (just type into google) and for Viruses you could try using Grisoft AVG free.

I hope this helps.

Extreme slow performance, cpu performance maxed out

Boot to safe mode and see if the problem is the same.
Have you checked for viruses and spyware?
Look in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Event Viewer, System and Application for red marks.
Do you have a temp monitor installed?
Have you changed anything in the BIOS? Set to safe defaults.

Can I install Windows XP SP2 to this motherboard?

yes, much faster, the minimum amount of memory XP needs to run fairly smoothly is 512MB of memory, especially if you have onboard (shared) graphics as this will be taken from your initial memory as well. So to sum up if you have 128MB ram in at the moment and your graphics memory just to run a normal application will use a minimum of 8MB, take this away from 128Mb = 120MB, if you run a dvd film or a game upto 64MB will be used leaving 64MB for the system, not to mention the memory programmes take to start up quiker the next time you use the programme.
