Question Re: computer slowdown - fried CPU?

I've ducttaped another mini-fan on top over the siezed one. It's probably keeping it cooler than no working fan at all, but not by much.
What could be slowing me down, then? Someone was telling me about a Firefox problem that can eat up CPU power... Just before I started writing this a Firefox update popped up.
I've tried installing my soundcard in different slots, plugging in different drivers for it. I don't really remember changing anything to make this creep in.
