My System Specs


Have you considered returning the computer to the store for an exchange or something? The hdtune scan makes your drive look like it's dieing or something, eradic ups and down in the graph and crazy high seek times are very bad... probably the reason you see those 1 second hiccups is because of high seek times. Open your case and put your hand on the hard drive and describe the temperature; it should be warm and able to have a hand held there comfortably, if it's uncomfortable or burning hot then that's the problem. Do you have another operating system to try?
