Compaq CQ57 runs much slower than normal

Compaq CQ57
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My girlfriend has a Compaq CQ57. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium. She has the re-install disk set for it also.

 

The problem is: The computer BSoD'd about 4 times in one night but I was never able to get the code that I could look up.

 

I decided to re-install the OS using the disk set but now it runs slower than it ever did, and it was never a fast computer.

 

I checked Performance Monitor and found that the Memory reading was fluctuating contstantly up to almost 100% and back down.

 

I'm thinking that the Memory may need replacing.

 

The other graphs seem to be about normal.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Welcome back Jeff.

 

When booting start tapping ESC and run the HDD diagnostics.

 

Let us know if it finds any problems???

I ran the long HDD diagnostic and the test came back "passed".

Is it possible that the RAM needs replaced?
