Hello I have a laptop that's running very slow for its specifications. I'm wondering if wiping it clean and reinstalling XP could five the problem.

Dell Inspiron 8600

Brand new (about a month):
500GB hard drive

Original (4+ years old):
graphics card (NVidia GeForce FX Go5200)
processor (Intel Pentium M Processor - 1400MHz)

Suggestions? Thanks for any advice.
