Windows computers have a tendency to slow down over time due to accumulation of what we in the industry call "cruft". Each time you install a new program, even if you remove it, it will tend to leave a mess behind. Each icon you see in your system tray is another program running int he background, slowing your system down. The best way to combat this is by regularly formatting and reinstalling Windows (at LEAST every two years). Back up all of your important files to CD, USB flash drive, or external hard disk, write down a list of what programs you have installed that you still need, then follow your manufacturer's recommended process for doing a system recovery or factory restore, which will erase the contents of the hard disk and bring the system back to the way it came from the factory. Once that's done, reinstall your software and restore your backed up files.

Hello Mike, Hi, may I suggest you try first to defrag your hard drive, Im sure when you power on your PC, the hard disk led keeps on blinking, your hard drive may have developed bad tracks and sectors, this slow moving process tends to go forever.
Defragmenting and checkdisk can find faults and bad sectors and tracks that slows down the performance of your PC.
Reformatting should be done if your defragmentation procedure fails to speed up your PC.
Try to run an antivirus program, which may help speed up your PC by detecting viruses, that tends to load forever, or slow down the booting process.
You may want to check the hard drive - sounds like it may be starting to fail. When it reaches the point of not continuing does it start to click? If you hear clicking then the drive is having issues and its time for a new one.
hi! there,set up exe. that was when your setting up win 98 you have to install that came from floppy disk before you can install win 98.there is an os win 98 in your system you have to delete that previous os before installing another win xp.restart ur computer. press F2 to open your bios set-up . then select bios set-up priority your cd-room drive second,your hard drive. last, quit and save set-up. and then your computer will restart. insert your cd windows xp then reinstall your window xp. delete the previous os then follow the set up on your window xp until you install your new window xp.
Your potential problem might be a virus. If you are having an updated anti-virus software and are running regular scans and found nothing, Then this might be the problem, while making the system get restored, the frequent problem is that, xp doesn't load the drivers which you installed for your system and it loads its own drives (which sometimes won't go with your devices). Try installing the drivers (especially display and motherboard drivers). If this doesn't work, I better suggest that you do a complete format of the system and install windows xp afresh.. Then there should be no problem. These're the possible solutions which i can infer from the details you've given..
Yes this hard drive should work with your system. all you should take into consideration is whether the inputs and such are the same and if all the other components in your system will support the newly added part.
