I recently downloaded and installed Intel Active Monitor ( ver 1.2.1 ) .I am facing the following problem since installation:
1. Whenever I boot the system cold , I find the Monitor giving alert for one of the power zones crossing the threshold limits . One of the Voltmeters( not the CPU Core OR the CPU I/O ) indicate a voltage of 0.63 V as against the recommended(green) value of 11 - 13 volts.
2. However , on restarting , the sys behaves totally normal and there are no problems.
3. I want to know if anything appears seriously wrong with my sys and what action should be taken from my side in order to rectify .Or should i continue to restart , after every cold boot,to restore normalcy.
2. I have Intel® Desktop Board D850MV based system with following details:
Processor Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 1700MHz
Bus speed 400 MHz
L1 cache Data Cache 8KB, Execution Trace Cache 12K Micro-ops
L2 cache Advanced Transfer Cache 256 KB
Form factor ZIF Socket
Physical memory 128 MB RAM
Memory speed PC600
Memory type Other, RAMBUS
Form factor RIMM
BIOS date 03/28/2002
BIOS size 512 KB
BIOS version P10 (MV85010A.86A.0025.P10.0203282158)
Does anyone have any ideas that could help me?

I figured it doesn't matter about the file corruption. Once more wouldn't hurt, it already goes off several times a day. On good power, it powers both computer and monitor for around 20 minutes. But I've ended up unplugging the monitor from the UPS, because the power is so dirty with extended brownouts, that there's constant strain on the UPS. It has a 10% buck/boost ratio. Only once has it stepped down the power for a few seconds, but more than half the time the boost is active. And like yesterday the power kept dipping below the 10% threshold, and constantly switched back and forth between line power and battery. Then when the power finally cut out completely, the UPS only lasted a minute. And after the power was back, it didn't have enough charge to start up just the computer--- had to leave it to charge for a couple minutes before the batteries had that initial power back. Kind of disappointing, but hopefully it will work with just the computer.

QUOTE (troyilicious82)My computer is slow since I had to reload Windows back onto it, so it take like a little over 2 minutes.
base windows OS takes like 10 seconds to load the desktop
now depending on your ram and processor yes it could take longer
I have a 1.3 Ghz 512 MB 40 GB C:\ 120 GB F:\ DVD Burner E:\ CD Burner D:\
with junk in my startup and it takes about 30 secs to get my desktop.
If I disable trillian I could knock off 5 secs, but what is 5 secs anyways.
Always defrag your computer at least monthly if not more if your really active you need to do it once a week.
