I have a Dell Studio 1747 which has:
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?
