One day i was playing some games, and it started to lag horribly, so i closed down the game, and noticed it was the windows, so i restarted the PC, and i just surfed the net, and after 15 minutes, the computer started lagging very hard, it's like going from 60 FPS to 5 FPS, the mouse slowly responds, and every action has huge delays, it's really hard / impossible to use the PC like this.

 

So i reinstalled my Windows 32 bit PC, and i did a fresh install and also upgraded to Windows 7 64 bit, so 2 days ago, i reinstalled it and it was running great, but today it happened again, and i restarted about 8 times today, and it still happens, please help!

 

System Specs

Processor: Intel® Core™ I3 CPU 540 @3.07 GHz

Ram: 4.00 GB (3.87 GB Usable)

Windows: Windows 7 64 bit
Graphic Card: GT 630 (2 GB RAM)

I'm new to the forums so i am sorry if i did not include some information that i should have.

Welcome,

Questions before answers:

Is your security software up to date? Have you run any scans?

If so, which ones and what were the results?

Thanks

 Two questions come to mind.  First, what are the internal temperatures?  Second, what about bad sectors?  For the temperatures I use SpeedFan, but there're others.  If the cores are over 50 degrees C, that could be your problem.  For the bad sectors I'd run chkdsk and let it check for and attempt repair of any bad sectors.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
