    did u install any software recently?
    some softwares/spywares/virus can cause the OS to run really ssssssssssslow....
    check ur startup program and scan ur laptop....
    when the hdd is nearly fulll (no more virtual mem) also can cause slowness but then i dun think it will be as bad the rouge softwares.

    My notebook suffered from similar problem of suddenly running slow

    after some trouble shooting , i found to my horror some RAM died
    Really , they simply died.....so do a quick check on how much RAM still available

    or better yet, upgrade to more RAM
    but it will cost a bit since older notebook RAM cost more
