Question about Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook
To follow up on rDx22's suggestion about monitoring the processes in Task Manager. Note the CPU processes column, click on the CPU title a couple of times to list the processes in decending order and this may help you determine which process (program) may be slowing your computer down. It may be your virus protection software, a virus/spyware, unnecessary program, etc. Click on it and terminate it if possible, see if the video or music play at a normal speed.
Let us know the results, perhaps we can provide you additional information.

There can be many things that can cause your computer to slow down.
First of all Viruses .. some viruses once in the computer are difficult to be recognized by normal anit-viruses they generally make your computer go slow, such a problem can be solved either by getting a better anti virus or by formatting your system
There can be another reason... have you check how many processes are running on your comp?
ctrl + alt + delete go to processes... now a normal XP os needs only 17-20 applications to run properly ... so anything in excess to it is being run on your computer to provide some sort of service to you(you must not start stopping those extra processes w/o knows what they are doing).Try closing some of the applications this should make your computer work faster
There can be another reason... the drive space in your OS drive Say Drive C is very less ... should be above 500 Mb for smooth functioning.. in such a case delete unwanted files..
