My laptop has been struggling (for some time really) - quickly after it starts up, regardless of what I'm using it for, it stops responding. I can usually still move my mouse, but if I try to open any programs, or complete any actions in something I'm already using, nothing happens. There's typically very little warning before it stops responding - I'm using it normally, then all of a sudden can't do anything. It's at the point that in order to accomplish anything, I must hold the power button to turn off the computer and restart, which only gets me a few minutes of usable time.
It had previously gotten to the point where I tried a couple system restores, which failed (regardless of the restore point I would always get a failed message). I then performed a factory restore, which seemed to help, but it only managed to work for a couple days before the issue started up again.
I'm not sure what info is needed to help solve the issue, but as a baseline:
- Originally ran Windows 8, upgraded to Windows 10 Home
- Intel i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40 GHz
- 64 bit
(As a side note, this seems to happen eventually with every computer I own...not sure if I'm doing something here.)
Thank you in advance for any assistance!
