recently "about year ago" i noticed that my pc started getting real slow and if i format partion c and reinstall os it gets faster for about week or soo then it become slow and if i changed the sata port that the hdd sata cable plugged to it become faster for some days then it go back slow
so i changed my (power,ram,vga card) but it still very slow some games from decades like wow barely go 30 fps in low setting and it always drop to 5~9 fps when something happens in the screen while it was going always 50fps before and when is click some folder the icons seems like loading they dont come once and firefox takes about 15 sec to run
so someone told me that my hdd is probably damaged and i need to replace it so i wanted to ask before buying one
my specs are:
cpu:intel 3ghz 512mb cache
ram:3gb kingston 800mhz ddr2 1*1gb 1*2gb
vga:xfx geforce 8400gs
Sounds like you have to many programs running at start up.Turn everything off that starts win windows starts except your antivirus , fire wall and spyware programs. Even windows update change it to manual.
