  • Please help me with my PC :'(

    For some reason my PC (internet/ethernet) keeps on breaking, but if I switch it off for an hour or so, then switch it back on, it's fine

    Windows XP with SP2 ALWAYS takes 10 minutes to load

    It does the black screen with the logo and blue loading bar, then it goes all black, and takes so long to load that my monitor switches onto standby

    When the net is broken, it is looking for an "ethernet controller" and my two network cards don't show up in hardware devices

    It really is driving me mental. I spent £1000 on it and I'm contemplating selling it now, enough is enough

    I have an:

    Epox motherboard
    Onboard Realtek
    Seperate Realtek (for internet, via cable modem and ethernet cable)
    1GB RAM

    I have tried EVERY update windows update has to offer, but nothing helps the loading time, or the amount that it breaks

    Load the system in bios only, and go to the hardware monitor, see what the temps are at startup. Leave it running for a while and see how fast their go up and to what point.

      They are usually always between 44 and 50 degrees C

      I have a constant program running to tell me from the official EPOX site

      I thought it could be that too

        scan for viruses useing whatever virus scanner you have then check the pc for spam and or trojans with those programs next if you dont mind loosing stuff reformat the hdd and reinstall every program from scratch but first try taking out the cards and uninstall their software then follow the directions to reinstall them.

        one time this happened to me the only thing that fixed it was to take the card out of the socket while the pc was running then put it back in. and yes i know thats was a risky move.
