What could be a ram problem

Question

Formatted hard drive and reloaded XP. Went fat32 route because machine was running so slow on start up and thought that would help. Well, same problem. It's like a minute until Window screen and everything loads so you can run programs. Went into Bios and set Hard Drive to load first. Nope same thing. Went back to normal order.

Did load Zone alert as you had mentioned in newsletter and it's the last thing to load and slow.

Machine was still slow before I loaded that and before I reformatted. Do you have an AXE handy? Or an idea or two would do. This machine was fast at one time. There is still plenty of room on the Hard drive. Like about 25 Gigs.

At your mercy. Roy of Sadsville
