Results to my win2k3

Recommended Posts

the first thing to do when you get a problem of this nature is to unplug and/or remove anythign that is not necessary. Thats means everything, all usb devices, additional external devices, additional hard drives, even cdrom drives. Only leave what is necessary to boot. If it boots correctly, than all you have to do is put it all back on piece by piece to isolate the problem. Somtimes extreme measures need to be taken like removing sound cards/video cards/nics if possible. Anyways, this is the first thing I try when i have a problem. Saved me from doing a complete fromat when caugt in a bluescreen/reboot loop.

No because would be a problem where he couldnt boot, but the fact that he can boot and just has lag when booted is the problem, i doubt it will be a hardware problem

What are its stats? I have run it on a 366 celeron with 512 ram...

i think Ram is very crucial (no pun intended)

maybe get some Pc133 ...512 is a good place to start with old systems
