Really slow Tecra M2

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

My Toshiba Tecra M2 has suddenly become unbelievably slow. It's not
related to the o/s or any software because the problem is evident as
soon as the machine is turned on. In both Windows and Linux under idle
conditions, the CPU load is about 25%. Even the simplest task consumes
100% CPU load. Both operating systems take about 5 minutes to boot and
about the same to shut down.

Before I start running any diagnostics (which are going to be slow!),
has anybody experienced similar problems on any laptop? Any suggestions
where to start troubleshooting?
