So, awhile ago my computer was having lots of problems, couldn't fix it so I reformatted. Well, I started playing games(mainly warcraft 3) and it would start running slow. Eventually my emulator(GBA) started running slow, and now even movies are running slow.
I don't know what's going on, my computer is clean, I believe it has something to do with my computer overheating. I used to always play it on the carpet, couch, etc(was always too poor to afford a desk )
Anyways, I always noticed my computer would run fat when it's shut down and cooled off after I started it up. So I built a lapboard that has a strip across the back so it elevates my laptop(Who puts a fan on the bottom, honestly). So after vaccuming around the vents, and still no improvement, I brought out my laptop panel, because I was going to take off the cover and clean the fan inside(to no avail, way too many screws, and I didn't want to mess things up.) Well, while reading I learned that you're not supposed to leave your comp on when it's in it's breifcase. I've done that about 5 times over the course of my having this laptop.
So, what I am wondering is, is my laptop done for with gaming, or am I missing something?
