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.

<<How likely that my HDD is failing?>>

My experience is that they can go anytime, depends on what the problem may be. If you suspect a hard drive failure has occurred or is imminent...I suggest running the appropriate hard drive diagnostic.

I did try a HDD diagnostic, but it said can't find a Smart enabled drive.

Your system is very hot inside. You need to get that video card down to about 55C

You also need to make sure that you are keeping all your components updated.

"Some won't even stop until they get to the 105ish range. But that won't do any good for their life expectancy. I'd say everything under 80C is tolerable."

Something that most of us tend to forget...generalized solutions/hypotheses...may not apply to a specific computer, no matter how much we would like to think so.

When I use chrome, it seems to give massive problems. When I used FF, the problem lessoned, but it still will lag eventually. 7.0.157.41 is the version on Chrome I have
