Two things - slow and overheating
I have had this computer for 3 years, it is starting to run very slow (taking upwards to 10 minutes to open something simple like Word or a web page - do even get me started on games…), and while I’m a very patient person this just doesn’t cut it for college. Would upgrading the hard drive to an SSD improve this situation? Or would it be better just to get a whole new laptop? Also, this thing overheats so quickly, to the point where it burns my hand to touch the back or have it on my lap. I’m afraid that its going to melt something inside the computer. Is there an explanation for why it gets so hot? Also, a third thing…I have a few games downloaded (Minecraft, Civilization V, World of War Craft), does having these games on my computer causing it to run slower or ‘breakdown’ faster?
