ok so recently my computer has been super slow. Running facebook's "cafe world" and photoshop at the same time bring it to a screeching hault.

I have trend micro security pro on the machine, but I can't scan while actually using the computer, as it brings everything to an even slower hault, causing programs to hang.

Last night, I got the white screen of death (all white with patterned white specks). I had to do a hard reboot.

Computer will boot up, but for fear of it crashing again, I have left it turned off and am typing this from a different PC.

I haven't instealled any new hardware other than unplugging my keyboard and plugging it back in (which also made the computer freeze) but I don't see why that would conflict?

I have a feeling it has something to do with graphics? but not sure. Lately when I run that stupid "cafe world" on facebook, the computer sounds like its working a lot harder - fan gets louder.....

Not sure what all of this could be, but if someone could lend their advice it would be greatly appreciated! If my computer is on its last legs and I need to back everything up and get it off the computer pls let me know!!

oh.. I have a second hard drive in it - half terrabyte, and the original hard drive is slaved just for storage. (has been like this for over a year)
