Answers :

\015\012To stop the machine shutting down,
\015\012Go to Microsoft and install updates,
\015\012Service packs etc...
\015\012Then run a scan to check for viruses.
\015\012This should stop the shutdowns ( if there is no damage to system already ) this should resolve that problem,
\015\012Wireless is abit slower ( that's just wireless )
\015\012Wired is better, if this is possible.
\015\012Slowness issue....
\015\012Run...Disk-cleanup, Defragmenter, ( from start, accessories, system tools )
\015\012Run CHKDSK.exe from a command promt, this is start, run box, type CMD, in the black screen command prompt, type CHKDSK.exe, this will check system files are good,( for the shut down issue too )
\015\012Delete any applications you do not use or are old. in Program's & feature / all programmes.
\015\012( in start, control panel, all programmes /features.
\015\012Scroll...check for outdated programmes, un-install them..
\015\012Increase the performance now.
\015\012Go to start, control panel, system, advanced system properties, advanced tab, performance tab, performance settings,under visual effects, adjust for best prformance.tick this box. ( better speed )
\015\012Increase the page file size too...
\015\012start, contol panel, system, system properties, advanced tab, under virtual memory, click change, click custom size, (( in the 2 white boxes put the recommended page file size ))
\015\012((look at the bottom it says total page file size for all drives-RECOMMENDED its the middle value ))
\015\012Put this figure in the 2 white boxes, click set, and click ok to complete procedure.
\015\012(( you should get a dialog box saying, you must restart system for the page file and the performance switch over to be functional.
\015\012Have a shut down and re-boot.
\015\012If this is done correctly, this will improve performane for you.

Slow transfer from SATA II (IDE) drive to 3 SATA II Drives configured as RAID (1). Drives wouldn't format until we installed the OS onto the RAID -- but it wouldn't install completely. We boot from the independent IDE SATA II drive but when we try to then copy files back to the formatted RAID (1) configuration the copying is very slow. Drivers from Tyan are updated (both chipset and SATA RAID) and we have set the drives to various configurations -- BIOS contoll, PIO, and DMA.

It appears you have made an error with the RAID configuration. RAID 1 is mirroring and requires an EVEN number of drives unless one is a hot spare. Also, RAID 1 is for redundancy and is slower than a single drive or RAID 0. Verify your RAID configura ... PC Desktops

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
