My laptop is been getting significantly slower lately. I used to play a decent game of starcraft 2 (on minimal graphic settings), while lately I'm literally unable to play. I could do a complete format and fresh install which usually helps, but it's just a matter of time before it becomes slow again.
I have an Toshiba satellite L500-128(about 5 years old), intel duo core t6600 2.2 ghz cpu, 4gb ram, ATI Radeon HD 4500.
I have done a full virus scan, defrag on HDD, ive cleaned all temporary files, uninstalled all useless programs.
I've also opened up my laptop and cleaned the air input, output and fan.
I have ran coretemp and the temperature is between 80 and 90, even going as high as 93 degrees C sometimes. And this is not even at complex tasks, while streaming youtube my temp runs up to 90+. Also my CPU freezes for a few seconds every once in a while.
I have also ran the Intel processor diagnostics tool, which gave a good result.
Ive had a broken HDD about 1.5 years ago, which caused the same kind of problems. I replaced my HDD with another one from an unused laptop and it ran smooth since then. I ran HDTune to diag my HDD but it didn't seem to be faulty.
Does anybody have any idea what to do next?
P.S. : I noticed that the device manager tells me I have an T6600 2.2 ghz cpu, but the system information @ control panel tells me I have an T6500 2.1 ghz, isn't that strange?
P.S.2 : When I open the task manager, chrome.exe is opened like 10 times in the processes tab.
