  1. I configure the proceess explorer to show Context Switches and CSwitch Delta. From the number of Hardware Interrupts and Deferred Procedure Calls it is obviously that a have a big problem. In internet pages i see to refer that as interrupt and DPC storms / CPU usage problem. I download and i'm intented to use some debuging utilities to see what driver/hardware issue is causing the problem. Thanks for your answer. It led me to unexplored (to me) paths.
  2. There is no option in BIOS to change the dual channel feature. It appears in POST automatically but i am not sure if really the mobo use it that way for the reasons you mention above. For the use of 4GB in XP 32bit is known that can be done with /3GB switch in boot.ini but you need applications who knows how to utilize this extra memory. I'm afraid that the whole design of that mobo is a little buggy. But i have a second PC (Pentium Core 2 3.016GHz socket 775 ) for my heavy hobby , video editing. The whole matter here is to determine if the decrease in performance is software or hardware related. I have installed Proccess Explorer and Autoruns to help me with that problem but i am not sure in what informations in Proccess Explorer to concentrate my attention. I will appreciate the help of anyone who will spend some time to write an answer for me. Thanks in advance.
  3. My CPU is indeed Extreme Edition. I use the CPU-Z utility and the results published here: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1355609 Drivers: 1. Intel INF Update Utility 22-12-2009 for 945GC express chipset. Same as previous install of Windows. 2. NVIDIA GeForce,ION Driver Release 257.21 WHQL 2010.06.15 Windows XP for NVIDIA 9400 PCI-E graphic card. In previous install was 196.x 3. Realtek HD Audio Codecs R2.49 11-6-2010 for PCI-E onboard audio. In previous install was an older version. I don't remember the version. 4. Realtek WinXP 32,64 and Win2K Auto Installation Program (SID 1412117) 5.760 22-6-2010 for PCI-E onboard ethernet controler. In previous install was an older version. I don't remember the version. 5. DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010). In previous install was an older version The XP pro Greek with SP3 is original and all the updates from microsoft is installed. My intention is to install 2x2GB DDR2 RAM just in case is needed by BIOS to address memory space for the PCI-E devices. Especially for graphic card with 1GB memory on card. Any ideas about that?
  4. First thanks for your answer One correction for the above: The 2.8GHz CPU was L2 1MB, FSB 800MHz The BIOS (ver 1.2) recognize the CPU properly (at least that i see there) System Info: Pentium 4 3.2GHz L2 Cache 512KB L3 not appear there At Post shows Multiplier 16x200=3200MHz Memory 3072MB 667MHZ (Before BIOS upgrade to 1.1 was show 556MHz) The same speed appears in Cell Menu (667MHz). How MSI manage to do this when the socket 478 CPU with 200MHz bandwidth for memory!!! In my old mobo with DDR1 RAM was 400MHz with the above 2.8GHz CPU. The suprising thing is that in when i watch a movie or playing a game and i have task manager open in both system tray and task bar shows extreme low CPU activity ( no more than 8% in movies currently play). But the playing is not smooth any more until i increase the priority to above normal. I don't understand that. I'm confusing.
  5. I have the following system: MSI 945GCM478 Motherboard (Socket 478) Intel 945 express chipset Realtek PCI-E HD Audio chipset (onboard) Realtek PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (onboard) Asus EN9400 PCI-E with 1GB Memory on card 3GB DDR2 667GHz CL5 4 SATA HDD (2x320GB and 2x500GB all Seagate) 2 IDE ATAPI DVD-RW LG Pentium 4 3.2GHz Extreme Edition (HT, L2 512KB, L3 2MB) My problem is that when i replace the previous 2.8GHz HT L2 1MB (Prescot) suprisingly i see a decrease in performance. For example when i watch a movie in my PC or when i play the Galactic Civilizations II Ultimate Edition it's necessary to set both to above normal priority or both have problems to smooth play. I have checked the system with BurninTest pro when i replace the CPU (also i do a fresh install of Windows XP Pro GR 32bit) and all where OK. I checked the Registry for L3 cache setting in Memory Management but there is not such a thing there. I will be thankful if anyone can help me to solve the performance problem. I'm experienced with Registry tweaks and Windows XP so feel free to tell me advanced modifications. Thanks in advance
  6. No i don't touch "Remote Procedure Call" and i will never do it. However the: Terminal Services: allow remote desktop session. in services don't have a stop button so i decided to left it run. Has anyone disable it and in next reboot was everything ok ? In BlackVipers page wrote that for security reason disable it if none application needed it. What should i do ? All other suggestions by Allen2 used without proplems in my printer sharing. Thanks

  8. Recently i was experimenting with unattended Windows XP Pro Creation. So i install in one empty partition of my hard disk the Windows XP Pro Greek (32bit) with SP3 integrated. Then i download all the updates for Windows XP Pro Greek (32bit) since SP3 released. I make a batch file which install all of them and i use the /log:C:Updates.txt Command-line switch on all update.exe type of MS Updates. Then i examine the updates.txt file. There was some logs for about 3 or 4 updates that report that my system does not fulfil the necessary prerequisites to install them and therefore just exit. My question is if windows will malfunction when i integrate this few updates to an unattended Windows XP Pro CD with nlite or manual way.
  9. Very usefull site. Even for a amatuer computer hobyist like me. I'm happy that now i will have your assistance. Goodbye for now
