hi there ill start off by saying I hate my computer has been nothing but problems since I bought it , but I paid for it so im going to get it to work , windows is probley the culprit of most of my problems rather than the computer here the specs
hp envy m6 sleekbook
amd A10-5745m APU w radeon hd graphics 2.10ghz
6.00 gb ram
250 gb ssd
so about 3 months ago my hardive crashed and couldn't get it to boot windows , so I bought a Samsung ssd and was going to reinstall windows well I didn't know about the embed bios key in windows 8 , so I tried the freezer trick for the drive and it worked long enough for me to clone the drive to my new ssd and it was good and then booted up and windows automatically downloaded some updates , I guess it turned windows automatic update back on ,and before all this happened it played games great I played wow for 6 months and never lagged or anything, anyways ever since that day when I play games my laptop it lags as in what I see on the screen and already happened 1 second before and sometimes my internet says limited , or ill get disconnected from internet , my computer boots up fast and internet is super fast when its working and my fps on games are low 20s 15 on medium , 20 30 on very low
im just confused what caused this lag, my internet ,those updates, or the new ssd , I appreciate any help u give and keep in mind im not very computer savvy , so what I ve done so far is updated to windows 8.1 that did nothing , ive cleaned my temp folder, ive tried plugging directly into my wifi router and still lag, then I plugged directly to modem and it worked great for like 10 minutes then went back to lagging , im so confused , also when I play games the ram is at like 90% , even at idle the ram is 25% , the game im playing mostly right now is h1z1 and I know it has a lot of bugs but before all this happened it played fine on my laptop, ,any suggestions, also updated graphics drivers
also I have some more questions
feel free to only answer the top one
in your opinion is this laptop capable of gaming?
I got my windows key from rweverything , is this legit
someone told me the keys are fake they give u?
how long is a windows 8 key?
can I reinstall windows from online then boot with the key I have?
how do I know if lag is from pc or internet?
should I optimize my ssd for , performance, reliability,or capacity
my laptop overeats when gaming unless I prop it up, is there any other solutions
also my screen does this weird refresh thing were the screen goes black and closes all programs and puts me back at desktop?
thanku , sorry for my ignorance when asking these questions just not my field.
