    I think I overheated the CPU in my laptop. I'm not entirely sure it's the CPU, though. Everything points to it according to my knowledge but I found this interesting...

    Maybe it's worse...

    Possibly the CPU is fine and just being used heavily because a different part is shot? Look at the virtual and hardware memory.

    Need pro help. Thanks guys =)

    general slowness. i have done stupid things like overheat it many times but i've cooled it down afterwards almost always. last time i think i fell asleep.

    it's just extremely slow. i have 7 and xp and i really think it's a hardware problem, because the slowness persists on both sides. also, now, when i log into 7, the opening sound file is gargled. otherwise the sound is fine, though.

    Chances are that you are infected or have too many startup programs. If you have used a registry cleaner, that may have slowed it down, too.
