Clarification Request
Have you been running

some optimizer or some boosters of some sort ?

Also have you pulled any maintenance on this computer such as canned air and maybe new thermal paste ?

Renewed thermal paste, ok so now I don't get a blue-screen while runing the gpu-z software, and can play some games, namely split-second which uses directx 9.
I'm not sure of newer games though, and ePSXe emulator just displays a black screen, doesn't freeze, I can get out of it, but just display the black screen I mentioned

For a test.

When we see such at the shop we restore it to factory condition. Remember I only have what clues you provided so slip in a blank HDD and restore it to factory.

I do see many optional things on that taskbar. Some I don't know what they are but there's too many.
