ASUS P5B-VM DO motherboard - intermittent audio & intermittent slow performance
A new ASUS P5B-VM DO, running XP Home Edition SP3, Intel Duo Core 1.8 MHz and 1 GB RAM, 3 SATA II drives. Audio is intermittently (80% of the time too bad to listen to) and performance is slow. Can frequently hear lots of disk activity and suspect SATA (IDE) controller drivers are not proper. Although used 2 different driver programs to update most drivers.
From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.
Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.
Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.
When its done let it clean anything it finds.
Its where I always start with an infected machine.
As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying
Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?
It may just be a "leaking application"
These are badly coded programs that dont release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.

There is also ASUS EZ Flash.
Make sure that you do have a copy of your current or original BIOS, if
you have the CD that came with the MoBo then you are golden.
THERE IS A SET OF NUMBERS ON THE MOTHERBOARD WHICH ALSO INCLUDES ASUS P5B-E IF YOU GO ON GOOGLE AND ENTER THE MOTHERBOARD NUMBERS YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET THE CORRECT COMPANY & DRIVERS FOR THAT BOARD... GOOD LUCK
Yes, your mobo Asus P5LD2-VM support CPUs with Conroe-core ("Core 2 Duo").
But for new CPUs strongly recommended use last BIOS version - 1401 from 2007/08/14.
