  2. Did you remove the heatsink to clean the fan? If so, you may check to make
    sure it is seated against the CPU perfect, as well as put a new layer of
    thermal grease on it, too. The P4's slow down when they get too hot, and
    after cleaning the fan, it sounds like that may be the problem.

    Were that the case either the motherboard would detect the processor
    overheating and shut down the system, or processor would fry rather quickly.

    I'd recheck for any loose cabling or memory that was jarred during the
