I have a mid grade computer with an Intel pentium. I don't know if that matters. I was typing up a project yesterday and was listening to music but i left my pc on, but got back and my pc was in sleep mode. Today I got home fired up the pc and instantly knew something was wrong. It took over a minute and a half from to boot up then when i was actually checking things the cursor was jumpy and then an admin notification popped up. It was the most distorted sound i have heard from windows. Then i went into spotify to play music but it skipped and sounded like the notification. I checked the cpu usage and it was all over the place. Anyone had this happen? If so do you know what it is?
