    Hi everyone!
    I've owed my MX 15 laptop since '09 and I'm starting to have problems running games. I used to be able run games like COD:BO and Civ 5 on full graphics both on and offline, but now they're lagging to the point of being unplayable! I've dusted my computer and I've made sure that all the latest drivers are installed. Since I'm having a problem with my lappy putting out a lot of heat (core temps read about 60C after 30 minutes) so I suspect a fan issue but nothing will let me change the fan speeds!
    Please help! The stupid "service number" sticker rubbed off a long time ago and Dell refuses to help me unless I have it, so I'm kind of S.O.L. right now!

    Hi,
    there could be problem so you install some programs and services which slowing your computer down. Try to remove programs which you don't need to make sure windows is not slowing you. If you are good enough with repairing laptops than you could try to change fan for new one if you know how.
