I upgraded my dell diminsion 3000 with a his 1550 video card after that my boot up goes to f1 to continue or f2 to enter setup. I have pressed f2 and it goes to the windows I enter password immediatly goes to desktop with all icons sorta there then hangs up for a loooooong time. I have looked at the cpu usage and it is showing 8000 handles 29000 threads cpu precentage 0 with bursts of 40 percent. after it finally boots I have stuttering performance and hangups. What I have done is went thru bios settings run regvac virus scans am at wits end (not a very long walk) any solution?

Have you tried calling the video card company? Maybe they know what is wrong.
not by phone, I had this happen before, and reloaded bios and it fixed it then. tried that this time no luck, the task master shows a lot of activity, but no processes are using anything, make any sense of this? Your regvac found and fixed some stuff but I have run it a dozen times and it keeps finding 115 or so empty register paths cleans 20.
