Yeah. All the sudden my computer has become abnormally slow and I am not sure why. It just took 20 minutes get past the login screen and load but now I can't get around on the desktop. This is really unusual. It is usual very fast. I have a Core 2 duo processor, 3.5 gb RAM. What could be causing this out of the blue? Motherboard? Graphics Card? RAM? I am trying to save files on the hard drive in case I have to reformat. I can't even do that. The mouse is moving but I cannot do anything. What is the first thing I should do? I don't even know if I should keep the computer on cause it seems like the CPU is working overtime if you catch my drift. lol Although I don't hear any strange noises. Ok, I am running on the desktop fine now. Trying to find out the issue. No clue. I did do a Graphics driver update yesterday. Anyone think that could be the issue?
