AFTERNOON SLOW RESPONSE ON W98 PC

By isiaka_gbadebo ·
Hello All,
Kindly advise. What could be wrong with an IBM Netvista workstation running windows 98 that works normally in the morning period and becomes very very slow in the afternoon. The room temperature is constantly cool throughout the day andwe have same type of machines all over the network behaving fine.
This problem manifest whether the pc is operated as stand alone or when connected into the network.
Thank you.

Isiaka.

AFTERNOON SLOW RESPONSE ON W98 PC

We've got a slew of NetVistas and had a lot of problems with slow speed at weird times. Updating the BIOS and the NIC driver to the latest and greatest versions seems to have gotten rid of the problems.

You might also want to check the power where you plug in the workstation, I have seen this sort of thing happen where I work and the problem was the circut was way to overload on that particular line. When a certain machine was turned on in the next room the voltage would drop enough to cause all kinds of weird problems. It may also be the power supply itself, or even your hard drive. Hope this helps, Ryan.
