Your Computer, whether it is a Laptop or a Desktop generally contains one or more Fans that draw cool air from outside and exhaust the warmed up air that is created by your CPU and various heat generating devices. Like most things your computer has an operating temperature and the faster it works the more heat it generates. Over time the vents that allow air in and out get blocked with dust and fluff and the thermal interface material that covers the CPU dries out and becomes less effective. Overheating computers, amongst other things slow down. Click here for more information on the causes and effects of overheating.
Failing Hard Drive
Failing hard drives can cause your computer to suddenly slow down as it attempts to re-read parts of the disc that may be damaged. Sudden slow downs can be a symptom of this type of failure. Its always good to have a backup but definitely so if your PC suddenly goes on a go-slow. Click for more info or call in to our town centre computer shop in Penrith.
