I gave my grandsons ( 18 years and 15 years) my old computer with TI 9 on it. Running XP home, 1.5 gig ram 2 internal 80 gig drives. (Can't remember the cpu, somewhere around 2.2 mhz) This computer was blazing fast when handed over to them. I showed them a couple of times how to make an image using the windows environment. They just can't seem to find the time to make images, so the 2 image I made are the only ones they have the last being Jan 19/08. They told me their computer was really slow now. I figured a virus or adware/scamware. So I went in and cleaned all the clutter, updated the virus/adware programs, ran them and it helped a little. I then decided I would backup and maybe try recovering an old image, if they needed any data they could mount the new image and copy and paste. The image took two hours and 15 minutes. ( used to take 7-9 mins). I popped in the rescue disk and it took 7 minutes. I presume that somewhere along the way the driver got changed for the "C" drive in windows. It is only about 7 months old. I have no idea how to change/update the driver for the main drive. I doubt very much if this is a TI problem. I have seen so many knowlegable people on this forum, I was hoping that I could maybe get some help. Is their anyway to mount an old image and see what the driver for the "C" drive use to be and compare the two? The drive is set for DMA as I had set it before giving the computer to them. Any help would be appreciated.
