12/27/2011 11:24:24 AM super slow; Explorer either locks up or cuts out for no apparent reason. In fact, PCmatic wouldn't respond for a minute or so & now I can't "save" this user input.

5/2/2014 7:37:36 PM It's a few years old and there is an element that seems to be overheating. I'm worried that it's going to go out and I'm going to lose my computer completely. I'm starting to shut it off at night to let it cool down. It seems to run hard and it's not running several applications at once without a lot of effort.
