How To Tell What Needs To Be Replaced?
Hi, recently my laptop broke so I've been using my grandparents old computer. It is a desktop computer running Windows 7. It's EXTREMELY slow. Opening up a browser takes like 5 minutes and even typing has a delay.
This computer has not always been this bad. Over the years it's continually decreased in speed. I'm not a computer guru so I'm not quite sure why. My suspicion is that the processor has steadily been going bad over time, but again, not a computer guru here.
Is there any way I can find out which part of my computer needs to be replaced? Like I said, it's a desktop. I have experience taking apart desktops, replacing parts, etc etc. I'm just not quite sure what exactly needs to be replaced. Can I check the speed of my processor and compare it to its advertised speed? Could it also be the video card maybe? As far as I know, EVERYTHING lags. There is a delay on any program I open, I experience lag any time I try to refresh a webpage, and like I said, there's even lag when I'm typing.
Any advice is appreciated
