comment Extended bandwidth test
The bigesst source of interference is the RF signal itself (Rican Fading) I would use Netstumbler and measure signal level on Windows and demand/expect > -70dBm for all positions of interest. You will see dropouts by slowly moving the laptop position over a 10 cm range.

comment Display not working properly - monitor or graphics adapter?
If you have a DVI adapter or VGA cable port can you test monitor? Does monitor have a power on self test flash screen? Does it have a color edit screen? Check connectors for bent or loose pins.

comment Is the performance of a CPU affected as it ages?
That is possible, however I have noticed reduced battery operating times when swapping a new battery from a new similar laptop compared to an old laptop and concluded the power consumption had increased due to slow down of slew rates and not loss of cooling efficacy. Other cases may agree with your findings.

How do you explain fan speed increase and baseplate temperature rise of Laptops kept clean after years of use? Is it not the slew rate increase from EM?
