well, i dont mean to crash your party here, but installing tweaks and other windows enhancers is a very bad idea...they install other programs that will give your computer viruses, get information from your computer that you might want to hide (god knows what) and put popups and annoying advertisements all over your computer as soon as you start up...trust me ive been through it and its not worth it! my comp is still loaded with popups and toolbars and stuff that wont go away...
I would hope you have been smart enough to run programs like 'Ad-Aware' and 'Spybot Search & Destroy' already, but just incase you haven't, make sure you download and run these programs. These two programs will usually delete all the spyware/adware on your computer, but sometimes some of it slides through... giving you constant headaches. For these little buggers... I urge you to visit the Gladiator Security Forum. On these forums will you find a quick guide on how to properly install and run HijackThis. For a current version of HijackThis, go to THIS THREAD. Once you have downloaded and installed the program to an appropriate folder, run it and save your log. Post that log in THIS FORUM SECTION and within 24 hours you will receive instructions on how to get rid of all the baddies on your computer.
These guys have saved me a couple of times already when Ad-Aware has failed me... I can almost guarantee they will get rid of your pop-ups and toolbars.

go download the slackware .iso files and create cds out of them.
Start -> Run: format c: /u
put the first slackware cd in and restart.
and enjoy slackware.

Using it with "Record Mode" also allows you to roll back changes and if you want to use that particular tweak on another machine, creates a specific .REG registry file which can be merged later on.

This is a massive 170 page guide which I recently used to tweak my computer. I can now confidently say that my computer runs faster than ever. The best thing I found about this guide is that it explains what it is doing, rather than just telling you what settings or tweaks to do. That way you can decide by yourself what tweaks you should apply.
I strongly recommend this guide for anyone formatting anytime soon, or even anyone wishing to tweak their current Windows XP.

ya if you think you are able to tweak BIOS directly .... then I think you can use software to tweak your os and hardware ....
