PC slowdown

Postby JohnyHumf » Tue Oct 13, 2009 6:28 pm

Starting yesterday my main gaming PC slowed right down. It began when I was burning a bunch of CDs and Nero took ages to load up, then later on when I went to start up the PC again it would take far far longer to load up than usual, spending a good while on a black screen, and then everything on the desktop would take longer to load too. Internet browsing seems to be fine, so does steam, but Nero (7, from years ago) took about five minutes to load, then another minute or two on each screen.

Another strange thing has been happening over the past fortnight or so, if I let the door on the front of the case close too quickly the whole pc shuts down the restarts again, no idea what's causing this.

I haven't had any alerts from AVG so I don't think it's a virus, and I've got a quad core CPU with 4 gig of ram, and yesterday during the day everything was perfect, so I'm not sure what's up.
