If its an HP and taking along time to boot up I would run a chkdsk on the system if it takes longer then 45 seconds to finish then you most likely have an overheating disk that is on its way out. This can be done by going to start -> run type in CMD press ok then in the black command prompt window type chkdsk and hit enter. other factors that can cause the system to run slow again with age is that the processor may need to be reseated applying some new thermal grease.

If this is a fairly new system then you may want to look at all the applications that are starting with the system could have spyware or something else running that doesn't need to be.

My Emachine W5243 is getting slow.... When i first got it, it was fast as 2.4GHz but now it got slower as if it was a 1.6GHz.... Is it the AMD? i ask my cozin and he said it's mostly the processor and what...

Your computer is running for sh-- because you probably have too many items starting up at boot time and running in the back ground. You have to go into your msconfig files and services,.msc files to turn off unnecessary operations. And virus programs are notorious for using up memory resources and turning computer into a snail. If you have one, get rid of it and stay off the p-rn sites.

It is not the cpu or power supply responsible for the issue. It is the user at fault for overloading the machine's resources. And a new computer will get just as bad if you continue to employ the same habits as you have with this unit.
