jurassic pc

i think my computer is dying. it's getting slower and slower even after i've deleted some programs that i hadn't much use of. it's been freezing/hanging an average of 3 a day and it wasn't amusing, especially if was almost done with my blog entry.

this computer has been with me even before i started med school and that makes it 6-7 years old. it has been hacked, gotten viruses, reformatted, changed homes when i brought it to my dorm, then brought back again here at home. it has been moved from my room to another room, where it was not used for quite sometime, and i used my brother's pc which was a lot faster.

i have been holding on to this pc coz i wanna save the money to get me a laptop if and when i start my residency. but i don't think it could hold on much longer. lately, error messages have been appearing all the time, even before it finishes booting. another sign of impending death. help!!!

Got here thru bugsys blog.

Try reformatting your computer. It is advised that you weekly defrag your computer (yeah, right, i forget)
empty your cache /temporary files regularly and that you delete everything and reinstall windows once a year.
