    Of course,older system,better performance...
    Thanks for your suggestion. I checked event viewer. I do not see any errors. I looked ASrock website for CPU support list and I found that my CPU is FX 8120 by part number is not in the list. my part number is FD8120FRGUBOX. I do not know whether this causes the slow, because the slow is not only in booting and also in every program clicking after windows started, symptomatic delay for 5 to 10 seconds after clicking a program. I do not know if ASrock found this problem.

    NO! That's not the problem. Sheesh ........ C'mon people.

    FD8120FRGUBOX is the boxed P/N.

    FD8120FRW8KGU, the numbers on your CPU that came inside your box, is supported by the MB.

    OK, that is good. Here is the profile of the machine: ASROCK 970 Extreme3 motherboard; FX 8120 (FD8120FRGUBOX) CPU; GALAXY GeForce 210 1GB display card; AVEXIR DDR3-1333C9 8GB memory; Western digital AD blue WD10ezex 1TB hard drive. Windows XP 64 bit operating system (Service Pack 3), IE 8.0 and Office programs installed only. Is any possible conflict?

    Heck yea there's a conflict.

    You're running an operating system that never existed. Or more succinctly an illegal and hacked XP x64 Service Pack 3.

    Microsoft put out XP x64 SP2 as the last update to XP x64, and that was it. There never was an SP3.

    Heaven only knows what problems you're suffering from with that installed.

    Good luck.

    From what I'd wager - it boils down to lack of hardware support due to XP x64's poor implementation of the 64bit architecture out of the box. While XP64 did officially exist... Service Pack 3 for XP64 never did. If you must use Windows XP - have you considered using the 32bit version at all? Can get the ram past 4gb back using Gavotte Ramdisk to slap the rest of the ram together as a ram-based swap file. Only other alternative for an 'XP'-like system for more than 4gb ram normally is to look into buying Server 2003 x32 or x64 (Not the standard version) which is the essentially the same platform and supports up to 512gb ram for both 32bit and 64bit.

    Have you updated your bios as well? There may be a newer version with updates for your CPU.

    Sorry,it was a typo. It is Service Pack 2. You are right, no Windows XP 64 bit service pack 3 yet. Any help?

    The problem has been solved by upgraded to Vista. you are right the XP 64 bit is poor implementation of the 64bit architecture on the board. I believe that it will be better if upgraded to Windows 7 or 8.
