Hi I just bought this new HP laptop a month ago. I have downloaded and installed all the updates that windows required. A week ago I set windows to ask permission to download new updates. Yesterday I was playing a game online(League of Legends) and with all graphics to maximum as this is a new laptop and can handle it without a problem. After I quit game and was surfing the net, after 5 minutes the fan started to spin very fast and making a buzzing noise. I thought I make a restart. After clicking restart I get a green screen saying "Configurating Updates, Please do not turn of your computer" or something like that. It started at 15% and it took about 30 mins to go 16, after that 30 other minutes to go around 30% and then it restarted. But I had NOT downloaded any updates recently because auto-update was off. Anyways the PC reboots and I notice that it is a bit slower than usual. I try to play the game again and the frame rate drops to 20-50 fps, (before it was 60fps stable and did not drop for even a second even in the most intense graphic moments). So now I am worried as this is a brand new HP. I am repairing the game hoping it is the games problem but I am not very confident. What should I do? Please Help!

 

-edit 1: I should mention that my antivirus expired a few days ago. Repairing the game did not fix the problem and I am sensing slow response from every application.

 

p.s. Have I posted in the right place?

Try rebooting a couple of times.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I tried rebooting like 5 times still no change. I am now installing Norton 360. It said it should take less then a minute and it took around 5, not a good sign whatsoever. I will try a scan now and will update this post later.

FIXED IT!

 

Well I did not want it to go this way but what else could I do? I used "refresh my PC without affecting any files" and as disclaimed it did Uninstall all my applications. Since I bought this HP just a month ago I did not have much programs. It works fine now so I think it will be OK. The only thing is that I am afraid it will do it again. I don't know what caused it so I can't take measures. Any Ideas?
