I took out the RAM and replaced it. That didn't help at all.

I took it apart and had a peek inside, but didn't notice anything obviously wrong. That's not really saying much because my desk isn't lit very well and I wouldn't know what I was looking for. There was nothing obvious. No family of squirrels living in there or anything.

So I put in a new hard drive. It was still slow to start, and then I had to format the thing because I'd just taken it out of the wrapper. Skype works now, and other things seem to be going ok. I only had a few minutes to mess around with it, so I'll know more tonight. But I'm hoping at this point that it's at least usable. Crossing my fingers...
