I have an Acer Aspire 4810t, its a laptop built to be light and have a long battery so I don't expect it to be fast but it works well enough for my needs. However since yesterday it has been playing up something terrible!
Can't really put my finger on it but everything seems slow as hell, I'm only browsing the internet and even that is sometimes lagging up, and constantly giving me errors that scripts are not working do I want to continue. Also opening programs like photoshop is taking forever, and even just adjusting brightness using keyboard shortcuts had some problems when I first booted it up.
I ran a software called Performance test by passmark, but it just told me that it was slow (something I already knew, duh!) and nothing about what might be causing this. Or maybe I'm just a bit too much of a newbie to understand it
Does anyone have any ideas? Really, it was working perfectly until yesterday and I haven't made any major changes to the system.
My specs are:
OS: Windows 8
BIOS: InsydeH2O Version V2.31
Processor: Intel® Core2 Solo CPU U3500 @ 1.40GHz, ~1.4GHz
Memory: 3072MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 3002MB RAM
Page File: 1757MB used, 2141MB available
HD: 600gb more than half empty.
Moved from Internal hardware to a more appropriate forum for an all clear as this problem could be Malware related.
