My gx70 has been running very slowly since the day i bought it. When i go into task manager i noticed that the hard drive randomly spikes to 100 percent for the first 15-20 minutes after start up and will keep on spiking at random times after that. when it peaks to 100 percent, it usually shows that system is using most of the hard drive. I also get really terrible framerates on certain games such as Arma 2 and Guild wars 2, but i can run games like Crysis 3 without any problems
