    Default My Computer has slowed down

    I have done virus scans and spyware scans, all coming back negative.

    Playing BF2 my frame rate has doubled, and my ping has on the server list, yet in the game i have a low 50-70 ping and still its choppy. This is in every server.

    Converting programs i have that usually go 25-50 fps now run at a measely 12.3 fps. I can't have more than one or two programs open without serious slowdown, when before these wouldn't have hurt my performance.

    My PSU unit went out on me so i replaced it this weekend. Everything has slowed down since. Just before my old PSU went out, i upgraded, i think, my mobo bios.

    I have allready tried a system restore back two weeks, with no help, so i have revereted.

    What do you guys think?

    Could be that the new PSU unit isn't up to the job but as the other poster said system specs would help. Also check the bios settings since an update would have set everything back to default setting. Make sure you don't have a bunch stuff running in the background....Like Spyware, viruses, antivirus software, ect.... You didn't mention what you used to try to clean your system. Update all your drivers and if all else fails maybe a system reformat might be an option to atleast eliminate software as a possible problem.

    When your PSU died it could have easily damaged other hardware in your system. You should test each piece to see if this is the case. Anything damaged should be replaced. This also includes the new power supply; if it's not putting out the correct voltages on all lines it will burn up your system.

    Or perhaps you just need some rutine system maintaince. When was the last time you cleaned the registry, deleted temp files, or defragmented? How much stuff do you have on your desktop? The desktop is not ment for storage, anything more than a few MB can start to impact performance, depending on how much RAM you have.
