My computer has recently become very slow, when i turn it on, the fans immediately starts going crazy.
I checked other forums which said i should clean the fan blades, so i screwed of the bottom and did a 1 hour extremly thorough cleaning. but nothing changed at all.
My computer is an Acer Travelmate 5720 and has a 2,5 ghz Intel(R) core(TM)2 Duo CPU and 3gb ram, and my pc is only 1 and a half year old.
Everytime i start it up it is working a little bit slow, but after a half to an hour, it starts going very slow.
it also heats up, but it has always done that a little, now it maybe becomes a little warmer.
It has never been like this before, and i had strugled a lot trying to find the cause, but i can't.
can it be:
- Maybe the fan i is old, and should be changed,( eventhough i cleaned it)?
- could the CPU be misfunctioning, so i should get a new one?
- Could the heatsink be misfunctioning?
- what else, i don't know
I often use my computer for gaming, but that is totally impossible to do right now, it has worked just great before.
I haven't done anything to it, the problem has just appeared.
Is there anyone, who might know or just have a clue about what is wrong, and howi can fix it?
Any help will be very much appreciated
