PC POOR PERFORMANCE AFTER MIXING OPERATING SYSTEMS !!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, i am new here so first of all congrate to the forum and hope you can help me about my performance issue which im still facing  on my windows 7 64bit. So let's starting about my problem... Yesterday i downgraded Windows 7 64bit to Vista 64bit (clean install) only to see how fast it works in my new system (my stupid idea) and then i upgraded again to windows 7 64bit (clean install) but still performance isn't the same as before for example i got  slightly lag in "aero" while minimizing and maximizing windows and slightly slower browsing "windows explorer" than before, so im confused now about the "aero lag" which i didn't have this problem before downgrading to vista, so i think aero lag it's because of that i have mixed operating systems or something else i'm not sure what exactly causing aero lag, so please anyone tell me something how can i get back my original performance of windows 7 on my system, do i need to use any software to do a full format before doing clean install and installing windows 7 or what ?  So thanks so much in advance and sorry for my bad english because i from Macedonia :)

    SPECS ARE:

    - Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66GHz (NO OC)
    - 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
    - EAH 4830 512MB GDDR3 OC EDITION
    - 320GB SATA 2 7200RPM BY HITACHI
    - Glacial 550W Real Power
    - ASRock G41C-S Express Chipset
    - Currently running Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit SP1 (but still not happy).

  • ok i did that and it seems to run faster like before with startup disabled, so i think KIS 2012 is slowing down me because before i had Microsoft Security Essentials !!!

  • As long as you formatted the partition with Vista on it there should be no reminants of Vista mixed with Windows 7.

    Did you install the motherboard device drivers after reinstalling Windows 7?

    Is EIST enabled in the BIOS, this is a drag on initial performance at least on my two Q6600 computers?

  • oh sorry, it's "5,8"

    ok. that is a good performance.

    now you can disable all startup to know if your PC now is best Performance or not ?

     

    Start -> Run -> msconfig -> Startup -> Disable All -> ok -> Restart
