I understand your fustrations belive when I was teaching computers and I couldnt nail the problem I get so fustrated and sometimes beyond that it was always a challege for me but I loved it getting down to the botton of what the problem was. Ok so hear is another suggestion for you to try. can you try and restore your computer to the day before it started accting up and see if that works for you.

Did you install the latest drivers? Are you using the default Directx? If so, try installing Direct X 9.0c for Wndows XP. It worked in the past, but I cannot guarantee it will work on yours. Installing the latest Direct X usually speeds up the graphical rendering of Windows, so everything else goes faster. all the best, rosdimy

That is a strange one. I was going to say reformat your hard drive and reinstall windows, but you have already done that. I always found a reinstall speeds up a clunky slow system sometimes. So I am at a loss what to suggest. I hope someone out their has some good advice for you.
