    Wii going slow

    Hey guys! Doing great?

    Well, unfortuantely, my Wii is not doing so great these days so that is the reason why Iīm here looking for some help :P

    You see, a little while ago, my wii start to "go slow" all of a sudden

    The "going slow" thing was first noticable in the wii menu, when, at the console start-up, it took about 10 seconds to finally open a channel or a game, even with the channels and even the disc channel with the original one inside loading rather quickly (explaining better, I can quickly go to the channel and press start.. but it has this "internal delay" for really starting up)

    Itīs even more noticable when trying to power off the console, when I press the power button on the wii remote or the wii panel, and, only about 6 to 10 seconds later, he then turns off..

    If the problem was only with the menu, wouldnīt be something that terrible, but started to show up in some games as well =/

    I use USB loader GX and Configurable USB loader for playing my gameīs backups, leaving the disc channel only for my gamecube old ones, and, the most noticable games with the "slow" stuff till now were:

    Mario Kart - Sometimes, in the gameīs menu, the frame skipping is pretty much noticable while the little videos keep passing in the "1player" "2player" modes and etc

    Sonic and Sega All stars racing - This one has the most noticable poor performance, with really noticable frame lags while in race and loading screens

    Smash bros Brawl - Some fights seems to have an slower pace, while some others still runs at full speed

    What concerns me if that is a hardware problem and canīt be fixed... my wii is about 7 years old and yeah, this makes me thing that perhaps he is slowly dying

    By the way, i thought it was the external HDD I use for my game backups but I tested my own on my girlfriendsīs wii and the games ran smoothly =/

    Can someone help me to know what might be going on?

    Thanks in advance!

    Is it overheating? You should check the vent and fan for dust.

    Post a system check.

    Your HBC is 1.0.1 on IOS 61, it should be 1.1.0 on IOS 58. Your cIOSs are outdated. I recommend updating your mod using the ANY Wii guide in my signature

    Well, seems to be something to do as well, since there is indeed some time from last time I updated my CIOS

    But.. donīt get me wrong.. this has something to do with this Wii slow start up and the games frame-rate inconstancy? Both my girlfriendīs wii and my cousinīs one were softmoded the same way I softmoded mine (with the same IOS and such) and neither of them has the same issues Iīm facing up here =/

    I cleaned it up the ventilation ducts of the console (it was dusty) and noticed some improvements in Sonic and Sega All stars racing already.. but I plan to disasemble the Wii as well to see if there is something wrong on its insides (of course, gonna use the guides Iīve saw in some respected sites for not mess it up with something in this proccess)

    The question that still remains is if the slow problem has to do only with the hardware and phsycal stuff (overheating, dust and eletricity) or, if itīs something with the soft-modding or Wii data of some sort that might be messing up with the internal processors or something

    Also, thank you guys already for the good advices given, you are surely helping me out here! ^^

    How much space does your Wii have on it? If you've saved too many things maybe that could be slowing it down.

    Well, checked here and Iīve got 935 blocks open by now

    Donīt know if thatīs too much usage of the Wii data or not tough... =/ (but I agree that there is a lot of save files here! XD)

    If thatīs too much and can be compromising anything... maybe itīs nice to pass them all to a SD backup and re-pass them later to see if something changes (I have priiloader installed here, so my Mario Kart and Pokemon save files can be transferred without any trouble)

    Also, something that always got me confused, itīs the "format" option on the Wii settings... using that, I will just erase all my saved data and channels or I will erase all changes in IOS and homebrew applications? (the soft-mod itself)

    Better ask already cause, yeah, again, donīt know if Iīm using too much space for saving data and a system format is something recommended in this case.
