That is, open it up to dust, clean and replace the old dried out heat sink compound?
I have been using my PC for ages ( about 10 years or something), it was getting slower and slower, i didnt really care about that until i got fed up with that and decided to reinstall the windows hoping that will help. I did a clean reinstalation of windows xp SP3, but it didnt really help me, maybe at first 2 or 3 days it was a bit faster then earlier but later it bacame kinda the same, i understand that desktop computer with 1GB isnt something that could launch the newest programs but my computer cant even do the simpliest task without freezing and lots of lagging, not responding for half a minute or something like that. I tried lots of programs to find out whats wrong with it but i couldnt track out the cause, finally idecided to ask you guys if you could help me repair my computer. By the way i am not buying the new Pc because its not only that i want to use computer normaly, but i would also want to know what should i do to prevent from such problems happen to me later on.
