I recently picked up a Lenovo ideapad 500 and I'm quite happy with it's performance. The problem is that I'll be working and music that I am listening to will just stop, I can now no long access anything on the taskbar. I cannot start any applications from the taskbar, I cannot play sound, and I cannot use cortana, search, network, see notificiations, etc. until I restart my computer. I mean, I can always restart my computer, but within 15 minutes it happens again. 

 

Now another problem I have is that my Dedicated graphics card has huge issues. It's drive continually crashes even thought it is up to date for Windows 10(It's an AMD Radeon R7 M360), and my computer continually defaults to using the integrated chip(Intel HD 520). 

 

Thanks in advance for any information you can give.

Hello there, 

 

Can you fire up task manager on the machine (CTRL-SHIFT-ESC) and see if some task is completely taking over the processor?

No, nothing is taking any more than 2% for a total of about 6-7% being used regularily while idle.

Try safe mode and see if it stays on.

So far safe mode does not fix the problem. I'm thinking of returning the computer to be honest, it's poorly built, keys sometime don't respond, graphics drivers STILL don't work, and it's generally not ready to be used.
