Today (that is: tonight) I have upgraded my computer with a new mainboard and CPU. My old Elitegroup K7S5A with a SiS735 went for a Elitegroup KV2 Lite (Via K8T800 Pro). My Athlon XP 2200+ was replaced with said Athlon 64 3700+ (San Diego).
I completely reinstalled my OS (XP). Unfortunately the system is way too slow, slower than before. For example, using Rightmark Light I had an average 5,5 frames before, now I have around 5 frames.
I installed the CPU drivers, and every tool I use (AMD, CPU-Z, Sandra) identifies it correctly. It appears to be running at full 2200 MHz constantly, at a cool 40 degree. It's just performing badly. OS is XP (32 Bit). If you need any more information to help, please ask.
Thanks in advance,
Are you judging your slow machine on a benchmark only? How old is the benchmark? If you are then the rest is for you.
I too just upgraded from socket 462 to socket 939, a mobile Barton 2500+ to a 3500+
I ran 3D mark 2001 and had dismal numbers, way less than my old system is getting right now. 9000 points less than the socket 462 system to be exact!!
Turns out you should not run new equipment on old benchmark programs, you never get an accurate reading.
How long is it taking to boot up? (25 sec. here with FULL software load)
How much ram do you have? What kind of ram?
What kind of power supply do you have and the specs?
what hard drive do you have?
