Having trouble with my PC: running very slow and hot!
Two days ago I received a BSOD message ("IRQL Not Less or Equal") and somehow got rid of it by trying different suggestions I found here on the internet (which one helped I do not know).
Unfortunately, following this incident (after BSOD issue is solved) my Sony Vaio is not the same. It became extremely slow (to a point that using it becomes nearly impossible) and running very hot. CPU spikes to 100 % nearly all the time, even with no programs running (when nothing runs svchost.exe is the one responsible for spikes).
Steps I have already taken with no result:
- I use an antivirus programme and I ran an additional check up
- I ran msconfig and disabled all the unnecessary programs running at start ups
- I updated all my drivers
- I did a clean boot
No changes. Will be thankful for your suggestions!
