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.
