Not sure if this is the right spot or not, so im sorry if it's incorrect.

I have an Alienware MX15 from a few years ago, equipped with an i5.
It used to run most if not all the games i tried, very smooth.
Now, as of maybe ealry this year, everything runs at a good 15-20 fps.
Examples being, Guild Wars 2 and Final Fantasy 14.

It's wierd, because i have run Basic Catzilla Benchmark, along with a few other tests, saying my system should be WELL able to handle these games.
I am leaning towards it being a problem with my processor. I have reseated it, with new thermal compound, and cleaned the inside. That used to fix it, but not this time.
Ive reformated, Bought a new hard Drive (SSD) and done a malware scan.

any tips? I'm just lost... ive been working on it for almost a year, and i just gave up.
But now im fed up and want to play my games again!
Thanks everyone!

Here is my setup

alienware MX15 
Bios version A08 1.00
Intel i5 CPU M540 @2.53GHz (4 CPUs) ~2.5GHz
Memory 4096mb RAM 
AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5000

Im running Windows 7 64bit
