Upon startup two hours ago, my pc began to stutter. Every couple of seconds, the screen freezes for a split second and the audio stutters.

As is, the thing is only good for text processing and facebooking. Not exactly ideal. I don't think it's a software problem - the pc even stutters during startup as it's booting Windows XP.

Does anyone have any clue what's causing this?

The most common reason is alot dust in the cooling radiator plates.
The dust is "chocking " you CPU or GPU and the temp start to rize as the CPU FAN RPM`s also ......
After some time the FAN hit 100% but the temp is continue to rize - no airflow is preventing from lowering the temp ....
So it comes to point that the CPU is reaching over 80 -85 degree and there the thermal self prezerving the CPU /GPU system is working lowering the CPU/GPU core clock and trying to save it from overheat .....
It`s not far from thermal cut off ......

In short you Laptop need clenning and maintenance !
