I installed my P4M800 Mobo combo, and it runs extremely slow, could this be a bad mobo or processer, everything works and runs, but really really slow, took about 4 hours to load XP, about 2 hrs to format drive, which makes me beleive bad hardware. Any ideas?

Hello, Firstly, remove the RAM and turn on the system, if you hear the beep sound continuously that means everything is perfect expect RAM. Clean the track of RAM at both sides by pencil eraser completely. Also clean the port of RAM.
Secondly reinstall the CPU with CPU FAN and also clean the FAN.
Third one is that remove all the add-on's card and than turn on the system.
You can use Winflash to upgrade the motherboard BIOS or during boot using text or character driven interface . These utilities can be downloaded free of cost from the mobo manufacturer website. BUT MIND YOU IF YOU DO NOT FEEL CONFIDENT ENOUGH OR NOT SURE OF THIS PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS AS ANY ERROR IN THE PROCESS OF UPGRADING MOTHERBOARD BIOS WILL RENDER THE THE MOTHERBOARD USELESS. An 8x AGP PRO Card should work without hitches on tis mobo
So I think you are saying it did work and then stopped, right?
If that's the case then I would try booting into the BIOS setup and reseting it first. If that does not work then I would reboot into the BIOS again and see if there is something there you need to enable for the AGP port to function.
If all this fails then you most likely have a bad motherboard. It's probably not worth the money to consider having it repaired, and I doubt you'd find anyone who's even interested trying.
no, its working as you said. try to uninstall your video if you installed to expansion slot (agp) then use the on board. that is one of the most common problems of pc specially when you're moving this from one place to another. if it boots from your onboard vga clean your uninstalled video card then reinstall to your agp. i hope that this helps you
