This has been an ongoing problem with my computer but it has gotten worse.

 

My Issues:

- Internet is really really slow. 24mb iOS 7.0.2 took 3hrs to download. (iPhone updated in 3 min in same wifi network)

- Ctrl-Alt-Del and Selecting "Task manager" takes a full 1-2min to appear.

- Gotten a crash once where DOS showed "No boot drive detected" (1 month ago)

- Civilization V crashes

- Overall slow program operation

- running Device Manager, Disk Check, Speed Check.... no issues :s

 

What could possibly be wrong?

Check your event viewer and see if you have disk/NTFS errors or something else maybe?

Nothing at all? Have you filtered to show only errors and warnings?

 

What are your specs/hardware you have?

Check your drive with the seagate tools program

100% nothing in even log even after filtering it to show only errors and warning?

I performed the Seagate tools program drive check and my main Boot Drive is not listed. :s
