Aded 4870 now Raptor acting strange.

Recommended Posts

I just installed a new 4870 and after this HD sentinel reported 50% drive performance and the system was dragging bad. I restarted the system and its back at 100%. I start to defrag and then watch HD sentinel... it drops to 50% after 5 min. The system begins to drag again. I benchmark the drive and it has the same benchmarks as it always gets and feels fast again even tho it says 50%. It will get so slow it will struggle to launch firefox. This is with a Raptor 150X, Abit IP35-PRO in win XP. ANy ideas? Is there any newer firmware for the drive?

Are you running the latest BIOS for the motherboard?

did you properly uninstall your old video card drivers before installing the Radeon HD 4870?

Last (definitely NOT first), what PSU are you running and what are the specs?
