If it's a change in performance, it would suggest a dust buildup and overheating. open the case and clear some dust. What PSU? it could have dropped out of spec with age.

May 22??

Agree with mi1ez, open open up the case and clean it out a bit.

Just to clarify, what do you mean by "cpu speed=2.50 GHz Performance Rated at: 3.75 GHz"? Where does this information come from?

Sounds like it came from that canyourunit website. Look at this:

I wonder.. is your pc a desktop or laptop? Not sure if it would matter...
But like everyone else said. Clean your computer. Perhaps you have some software that got installed and is running in the background? You could try upgrading memory but if it worked before, something has changed since then. Did you move your computer? Perhaps you're not getting enough air flow to cool your parts better.
