Question Laptop performance slow as a snail

My Amilo Pro V. 2010 laptop is as slow as ****. It is running Windows XP SP2 . What can I do to improve its performance?

Note: it wasn't always slow. Also, the hard drive seems to make its grinding sound for ages before anything opens. Could a 30 GB usage out of 37 GB available memory on my hard drive be causing this problem?

You should start backing up all your data that you want to keep it sounds like your hard drive is going to bite the dust. And a bad hard drive will slow your system down.
