I was wondering what's wrong with my laptop.  I'm experiencing a major slow down and it's taking me forever to even get into windows.  And when I actually reach windows, I can't even do anything b/c it's too damm slow.

I was wondering what would be the exact problem.  I think it's an internal hardware failure of some sort.  Maybe RAM chipset? I am not sure.  I could also hear a loud reading noise coming from the hardrive at the same spot.

I have I'm on the right forum to ask this question.  Thanks

Do you have xp and have you added a patch to the system. (Microsoft released a bad patch that slows down systems) (they have also released a fix for this bad update)
