Hi. I recently purchased a new PC 3 days ago. It ran smooth the first day. Since, it has started slow, taking 3-5 minutes to get to the log in window and then a few to start up windows. Also, when opening the browser is lagging,hanging. the spinning circle at the top goes on for about 2-3 minutes before responding and opening the page. This happens with any page, especially after i first start up the pc. After a while it starts to run better, but then some pages it just takes forever to load.
Some of the games (apps) that came with the computer froze completely, i had to 'end the process' and the screen never came back, i ended up restarting windows. Maybe you have to have a certain software added on to run these apps.
When i uninstalled a program i didn't want, it had me restart the computer but wouldn't come back after i logged back on to windows. Almost like it froze. I had to hit the Task Manager, and then it finally brought up my desktop. (hope this all makes sense).
Also i notice there is hum every once in a while, you can barely here it. only for a few seconds, it comes and goes. Also getting a smell, and electronic smell.. not sure if it's burnt wiring.
So, think its a lemon or just need to tweak it or take it back? Someone else in another site told me to return it.
Sorry if this is in the wrong place.
Thank You so much in advance!
