ASUS K50Ij laptop.
3 GB RAM,
Pentium T4400, DualCore @ 2.2GHz
Running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1
I've played and toyed around with this laptop so much of the years, I dont question why it feels so much slower than when i first got it, or than when i installed XP (Which made this thing seem like it blazed)
My Father got me this laptop back in Feb of 2010, as a birthday gift. I am currently virus free, although I do enjoy a little challenge. Gives me something to do.
I wasnt going to worry about speeding this thing up. I was supposed to leave for the army, then buy a new one. Nope, broke my friggin arm. Now I've got two plates in my arm ( wanna see the pre and post op xrays???) and type like a spider.Currently jobless and broke, subject to change as soon as the doc says go. I also have nothing but time on my hands. Could anybody help me try to speed this thing up a little? I use various cleaners, CCleaner, the buil-in Disk-Cleanup, and SlimCleaner.I used to be able to use my laptop without the fans drowning out during late night movie watcging/youtubing Hell I think my WEI even used to be higher than 3.3.
I'm just not sure what to do at this point. I use gamebooster to clear me up a little when i want to play Sims 3 (only non-console/one-handed game i have) and i used to be able to play on all medium settings, now its mostly low. I dont quite understand, I mean hardware doesnt deteriorate in performance over time, does it? Not in 4 years, i wouldnt think. and its not like were talking about a car here, the only moving parts i know of are the fan,disc drive and the HDD.
My Disc Drive opens randomly when not in use (Not a focus, just an amusing point) and im surprised with all the sheize I threw at the hard drive that it doesnt cough at me lol.
Any help would be much appreciated.
