xp laptop running very slowly and sometimes won't connect at all. It is also turning itself off constantly sometimes straight away and sometimes after a wee while. I don't know technical terms or details to give, sorry.
Sounds like you got a lot of dust. clean it from the cooling fans using a can of compressed gas. Delete any old or unused programs and scan your system of virus's. If your HD is full and you use your laptop a lot you may have fragmentation problems. I like to use a fully automatic defragger that runs in the back-round under low free space. Much faster than the in-built. Good luck.
