Hello
My pc specs are

Intel Core2 Duo E7500 2.93 Ghz
Intel DG41RQ Motherboard
Kingston (2X1) 2GB DDR3 RAM
Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 250GB HDD
Asus 8400GS GPU
Antec 450W PSU

my pc was very gud. i could play GTA4 on it on low settings. it was really fast for a pc like this.. but a few months back it became so slow. it started making more noise. startup took 10 mins nd after more 10 mins it would regain its speed nd would hang frequently. i tried everything- installed antivirus . installed windows 7 again .but nothing worked. IDK wat to do.
PLZZZZZZZZZ help !!!!
nd sorry if i posted dis in wrong section

Try a disk defrag, and try stop useless programs and services from starting at startup. That'll boost the speed a little.

sounds like something may be overheating. making more noise is a sign that fans are spinning faster to cope with more heat. Is it warm in the room the computer is in? Check that your heatsinks are seated correctly on the cpu and gfx card and make sure the fans are spinning and clean any dust from them. get HWmonitor to measure temperatures and see if any are particularly high.

have you got a different hard disk lying around that would go in your computer, if so try this because it might be due to your hdd having a lot of sudden drops in speeds which might have caused the slow boot up time and noise as your hdd being on load for longer. you can try downloading hdtune and test your hdd speed to see if it is the problem.

@thegeek - i have tune up for that . the settings were fully optimum

@rizlla - its 67GB full out of 250GB

@iam2thecrowe- everything was OK. it was clean. the heatsinks were working fine.

HWmonitor gave me this reading
CPU Core#0- 65*C Core#1- 60*C
GPU -54*C
HDD - 50 *C
Fans 1548 RPM

@megadelayed - no i dont have an extra HDD. hdtune result was OK.

nd
@callumparker666 - *** OFF .U UGLY **** SUCKING ASS MUNCHER.. THIS THREAD IS NOT FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU

I'd do something about that. That's not a normal temp for a core 2 duo.

Check that your heatsink is mounted properly and check to see if there's any dust gathering around it. Do the same with System fans, vents and so on.

If the CPU heat sink is mounted on right and there is no dust around the vents and fans, blocking the air flow then try applying more thermal paste to your CPU. If that doesn't work then you may need a better active heat sink for your processor.

did you overclock/overvolt the cpu now or at any time? What voltages did you use?

the cpu is overheating. Try re-seating the heatsink with new thermal compound. Failing that, get a new cpu cooler, the coolermaster hyper tx3 is fairly cheap and much better than the stock intel cooler.

@iam2thecrowe - thanx for that .any more options? will it fit i d case? will hyper 212+ be better than that?
