Recently I've been having this issue where over time while I keep my laptop on, the audio playback starts to stutter as if the computer is about to blue screen.

 

The time between stutters lessens with time, to the point that watching youtube videos is a stutter fest.

 

This isn't just on youtube, practically anything that plays audio stutters including Skype and most games that I play.

 

In addition to the audio stutter, the video playback slows down slightly and the mouse movement becomes sluggish.

 

 

I've also had issues booting up smoothly, it always loads to the lock screen but every now and then when I try to pull it up with my mouse it lags out a bit before swiping up in three-ish frames.

 

In general, my computer feels a bit slower than it should be. I have a feeling it may be a driver issue, even though I've reinstalled my audio and video drivers several times. I'm hoping it's not a hardware issue, I've only had it since Christmas of last year.

 

 

My setup:

 

Aspire E 15 (E5-573G-52G3)

Windows 10, 64x

Intel Core i5-5200U

Nvidia GeForce 940M

8GB DDR3 L

 

Any further information you need? Ask away.

Hi! Purely going by what you said, casts my mind back to being hacked on Windows XP. Perhaps check your task manager and see which processes are using your CPU and RAM? Mind you, l don't recall that ever telling me much when it happened to me.

 

Perhaps cast about for a Linux disc, boot up with it, and go into your Windows desktop through the Linux desktop, and backup your most important data, then proceed with caution, as it may not even be hackers / malware.

I mean, ask the experts, but in the meantime, backup your data quick

Nothing is taking up a ton of ram, actually. The biggest culprit is System and Compressed Memory, which is apparently a passive service meant to make things smoother and not more rough.

 

My CPU/Disk usage goes up to 100% on occasion, but nothing actually shows up that's eating a ton of resources.

That's about the height of my knowledge, l think what l meant was, it might be more than a mere audio glitch. Because you mentioned boot issues and your mouse lagging as well, perhaps refer the matter to experts in another subforum on this site, like, one dedicated to suspected malware? I hope you get it fixed.
