Windows 7: Slow Computer

Slow Computer


About a month back my comp had crashed so now i have reinstalled my pc but the Windows Experience Index was showing 4.7 for my processor and now it is showing only 3.0

Besides the games like FIFA 10 which was working smoothly first is now working slow and my whole comp seems to shut down automatically after 20 minutes or sometimes longer

I have found out that my FIFA 10 always runs on a single processor and continues to run even after changing it.

Please Help

I agree, the same thing happened to my old computer. Most of the time it is insufficient cooling. Get a cooling pad at least or install a better fan. It will extend your computers live but no computer can hold on forever unless you have the most minimal settings ect.

Computer gets really slow out of nowhere.
I have an old, crappy Vaio that I installed a free copy of Windows 7 Pro, 32 bit on. It has a 1.6GHz (single core) processor so it can't really handle a lot but does manage pretty well.
