Computer slowed down, video problems

Dell / INSPIRON 9300
February 1, 2010 at 03:42:53
Specs: Windows XP
Computer runs about 4 times slower than before. When a screen is presented it appears a second time after a while. Running a DVD film is a problem while it pauses frequently. All drivers are up to date. So it must be hardware. Either mother board or graphic card.
Have tried to find software to analyze the hardware, but have found nothing.

U didn't mention your system specs eg cpu,ram etc. Did u scan your system for virus? May be u have alot of unused start up items plus unused crappy soft. Use ccleaner slim to clean the system. Start>run>type msconfig and untick un-neccesary start up items.

Yeah, sounds more like you have a lot of useless software and/or garbage files clogging up the system rather than a hardware problem. Listing your system specs would be helpful.

Thanks but I have virus protection and use CCLEANER and other stuff to maintain my laptop. The drivers are also up to date.
The laptop has a ATI Mobility Radeon X300 Graphics card.
