Question about Computers & Internet
I bought a MEDION AKOYA P 7300 D Desktop PC with a 1TB hard drive, 4gb of RAM, NVidia GeForce 9600 GT (512MB) GPU, Intel Core 2 Quad CPU and Windows Vista Home Premium and Ubuntu 8.10 installed, around 8 months ago and it's running into problems. Windows Vista slowed down a lot and Ubuntu slowed down a bit. Around a week ago I installed and then removed a trial version of AVG Anti Virus and that is when problems started to occur. Then in Windows when I try to use the taskbar and start button, a loading cursor comes up and I can't do anything with it, and when I try to open a program (eg. Firefox) it doesn't open at all. The only way to shut down the computer is to hold the power button. I have tried cleaning the computer and reinstalling Windows but that didn't help a lot. Is it a software or hardware problem, or both? PLEASE HELP!
nice gaming PC you got yourself there.
It may sound weird but I would recommend to install Win XP Pro
instead of Vista, when you have the right to do so(Original CD!)
This might rid you of some errors and slow downs.
Concerning Vista and probale virus infection:
I dunno what you have caught, but some viruses tend to infect even the Master boot record and backcopy into clean systems, so when setting up a new system, just use clean CDs, before installing any other devices than the most necessary, do get an anti-virus (like A-squared, Avira or such) software on CD and scan without accessing the web.
Then see if you still have these problems coming.
For further assistance do not hesitate to come back to fixya.
