I use Vista 64bit Premium SP2. This is from a post in another forum.
I have a gateway LX6910-01 desktop with Vista 64bit, 8gb ram. I started having isues with it lagggging and slowing down. I do a reboot, and it works fine for about 6hrs, where it starts lagging again. I use MSE, TC, Keepass, Pidgin, Chrome.
I have done a fresh reformat, updated drivers, done windows update.
Right now, my problem is beyond me. The CPU fan works fine, doesn't seem to be overheating. Do you think this is a hardware issue(hdd)? or some vista SP1 or something similar.
Its a system lag- when playing adiao, there is stuttering. When videos, everything stutters. When moving the mouse, there is lag. Being that I reformated, I think its unlikely to be a software issue, unless maybe an update messed everything up.
How likely that my HDD is failing? It might be cpu throttling, but I don't think that would explain why everything works with a reboot. I have cleaned the fans out, and the fan seems to work fine.
