Computer slowing down randomly

  1. Just a quick question. The last couple days my computer has been running a bit slower. It's most noticeable when watching videos online that are HD 1080, these used to load up and run fine, now I'm having trouble even watching lower ones like 320. Should I be concerned, and is there a way to fix this? I'm running a 32 bit Windows XP

    Whats your Processor + clockspeed , Ram and Video card. If no video card what's your motherboard model ?

    I'm not quite as computer literate as you are. Can you tell me how to find that out?
