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?

NO OS stated, just mobo. (and GPU card) windows what?
all PCs are slower than better PCs,
no CPU stated,
what are you doing, when its slow?
are you playing games, tell what you do when it slow.
I have Asus z270 with i5-7700 and it screams, with M.2 fast. SM961.
no idea what you have there, or are attempting.
computers can do 1000000000000 things, name one please.
is the CPU overheating, 90c it halts just before that all CPU slow down to save themselves from damage.
the heat sink must match the wattage of your CPU,
the fan on top must run and blow, or the CPU will overeheat.
your mobo only can run 3rd generation intel CPUs, like i5-3xxx
2012 processor it is.
you didnt put a slow crippled Celeron in it did you?
Core i7-3770 (this CPU tops out here) full features. and speed.
tell more get more, what OS, and what runs slow , name something please, and tell what heatsink fan you used.
the top processor needs at least 77watt fan/HS or it will overheat.
After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.
Restore from backup You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup section) from hard disk, CD or DVD. 1 Boot to Windows XP. 2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility. 3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros. 4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and click Next. 5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.
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
