  1. Hi !

    When someone is downloading from my sytem via LAN, the system seem 2 slow
    down. It's almost impossible 2 do anything.

    My old system an good old fashioned P3 800, never had that kind of problems.
    Yes you would notice a bit of jerking when playing a game, but that was all.

    Anyoneone seen this before ?

    That's interesting. I get something similar about once a month. It
    only happens in the first 30 mins after power on but I am downloading
    news group headers. The system slows to a crawl. The CPU temp is
    normal and usage is low when this happens. I have to power off at
    the PC and reboot. It's fine after that for weeks..
