Extremely slow pc


#1

my pc is running extremely slowly after i installed a 40GB sata hd.it takes 20-25 min just to boot but mostly its just stuck on check disk screen @ 0% and whenever on a rare ocassion it does boot up properly it takes ages just to open firefox....is this a bad sector hd problem? Never had such experiance with me previous hd which unfortunately stoped functioning
