I have a Dell Studio 1747 which has:

4GB Ram

2x500GB Hard Disc space (1/4 is full right now)

Intel Core i7 Inside Q 720 @ 1.60 GHz 1.6 GHz (1.6 Ghz is writte twice in the My Computer Properties)

 

By the way this is a Laptop!

 

It is a 2-years old computer and started to get VERY slow while opening or while just being opened for a while.

 

When the PC is shutten down for a long time it freezes while booting so I turn-off it from the Turn-On button...

And when the PC restarts it is fine but after a while (sometimes a couple of minutes and sometimes an hour) it slows down and eventually freezes.

I have checked and fixed all problems with "RegCurePro" but the PC is still doing the same thing.

 

Now... I tried to open the inside... There were a couple of screws at the bottom, I just took them out and the fan wasn't there. There were 2 hard discs and a couple of thing I dont know. There was this thing saying "WLAN" on it and there was a thing with many small Memory Card looking things attached to a bigger platform...

 

There was another piece to come out and it was attached there very tightly. I unscrewed the other screws to open that part which surrounds the keyboard... Where the mousepad is at... But I didn't want to damage my PC because it wouldn't come out that easy. I just closed it... But I saw dust in there and I know that dust makes computers slow SO I took a vacuum cleaner (I know it is funny but I did) and I vacumed the dust out from the places where the fan would blow out the air AND I am not sure if it actually vacumed the dust... AND I am not sure it did a good job since the PC is still not fixed and has the same problem. I am not sure what to do...

 

I can give more specific information if anybody asks me to but please help me! Should I just give it to the DELL service to get them to clean it? Or is it not the dust?

Hello,

 

Can you recall when it started to become sluggish? Such as after installing a program? When was the last time you scanned for malware and with what did you scan with?

Nope... My computer had a similar problem with Windows 7. I forgot my computer open (it had an update error when I said: Update and Shutdown there would be 1 update never ending so I didnt realize that and left it open) at night and when I came back it could only boot in safemode or would Show a blackscreen... It came from repair a month ago and It then had a bluescreen error which Avira Antivirus was causing... You can find that topic. It was named something like "BAD_POOL_HEADER Bluescreen Error" I am not sure what the name was but it had that badpoolheader thing in it. Anyways after deleting Avira the computer used to work just fine. I downloaded some games like Skyrim and ACIII but I don't think they have an effect on this problem... Today I unscrewed more into my computer and I just saw but couldn't manage to reach the motherboard... But there was a thin layer of pure dust on it. I couldn't clean it because like I said some screws and that board (which is on top of the board) wouldn't come out... I can put its pictures if needed. I also installed Microsoft Visual Basic C# and .NET and Microsoft SQL Server but I don't think those again have any effect on this problem. Like I said on the first post I only use 1/4 of the space so I dont think the problem is that too... Something with the processor OR that dust business... I am not sure if this topic is on the right topic though... I don't know :I

Also when I open the PC after like an hour it will reload and will freeze but when I actually boot it like 5 times it starts to work normally. And another hour being shut-down or turned-on it MIGHT just start to do it... Its just complicated and annoying! Please I need help!

And today I reached the fan and the motherboard AND I totally *bleeped* the computer so I just hate myself and this freaking computer I guess I will just dump it in the trash after usng it for a while... Well actually its in usable shape... I cleaned the fan and there were really a lot amount of dust in there but now the computer keyboard has lifted and isn't just in place and the frame is abir *bleep*ed up... I shouln't have done this -.- actually the problem is at the cables inside I just tried to make them nicely fit in the places for them but NOPE they wouldn't go in there properly so I just did my best and now the cables lift the keyboard up and stuff... And there are a couple of extra screws left after trying to  put everything up... FML -.-

Grab HDTune and do a SMART test on the hard drive.
