Hello, a few days ago my computer started lagging like crazy. Even when im not playing a game, this happened while i was playing a game which i was playing every day, it happened suddenly, the game started freezing for 10-15 seconds every 5 seconds. Some of my pc specs: 3 gb ram, geforce 210 and amd sempron 2.7 ghz single core(ik they suck). Things I have tried to do:


1.Restart my computer.
2.Running viruses tests with a lot of programs.
3.Formating my pc.
4.Cleaned the dust from it.
5.Rage quitting .

Getting attempted assistance...is not a speed test.  You say that you waited a few days before addressing your problem.  If that's so, then it seems inappropriate to expect instantaneous responses when you post said situation.

 

Members here are online/offline throughout the day, each according to her/his own personal schedule.  There is no member who has answers or responses...for every topic posted...and, if there were, I would question the validity of all those responses :)

 

I believe it's important to understand that when initiating a topic.  That said...

 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

Louis

3.Formating my pc.

 

 

 

Okay so first I feel you.  I'm naturally an angry person and have been exactly where you are at.  If you stay with me, I'll stay with you on this.  Do what hamlouis said.  I've been watching him for a few days and he knows what he is doing.  His thing is more formulated though, which is good when you are doing masses of people every single day, where my "style" is more personalized and gut instinct.

 

First thing we look for is an "event".  When things work and then they don't, almost always there is a "something" that happened to make the thing that work stop working.  What was that?  Is the question.  Lightening strike, new program installed, an infection you "got rid of" that you didn't think was important, a Windows Update, your young brother borrowed your computer for a weekend, SOMETHING.

 

Pay close attention to all questions and answer every single one of them.  Even if they seem pointless.  Even if you already gave the information somewhere less in the thread.  Even if if you think the question is stupid.  People that help people on forums like this one do not like to waste time with people that need help, do not respect the fact that they are volunteers giving (in hamlouis's case) high-quality advice for free.  Your angry.  We've all been angry.  But we're not the one with the broken computer, asking people for help, for free.  Important to know your role in the relationship, which is titled "Someone Asking for Help from Strangers for Free".

 

I have a list of things to do, but don't want to distract or interfere with HL, so instead I'll just mention a few:

Run chkdsk
Run Defrag

Make sure your HD is less than 75% full

Report if you run P2P filesharing software (indicates possible infection)

Report any malware-like symptoms (browser redirections, etc...)

 

Is this a laptop or a desktop?  If desktop, I'd suspect the Power Supply, since they are always total crap.  Post full specs of power supply to include manufacturer, model and rated power output.

3.Formating my pc

 

What did this mean?  If you format the PC, it means you reinstalled the operating system?  Did you do that?  If so, when?  And where does that fall in relation to the time your problems started?  Before?  After?  In the middle?

That freeze while running speccy sounds like heat.  Did you clean the CPU heatsink AND fan?  Did you get the crud from between the fins of the heat sink?  Also check the video card fan.  they can overheat due to being dirty also.  At some point, you might need to refresh the thermal compound on the CPU and/or video card.  Not now, but later.

 

http://stonet.ro/produs.php?id_produs=24686&div=rate

 

Is this the PSU?  If so it looks like cheap crap.  I couldn't find a rated power output, which is expressed as a percentage.  No PSU actually outputs what it says it is.  Usually you are lucky to get 80% of it's rated output.  I've seen them as low as 50%.  Best I think you can get is 90%.  To give you some sense of range.

Check voltages in BIOS and you'll need to install a software to measure temps both during idle (no load) and during heavy use, like gaming or video playing, or whatever.  Get the CPU to run up towards max and see how high the temps spike.  We used to use Prime95 for running up CPU and memory.  Most forums have a list of favorite/preferred softwares so I won't recommend one.  Maybe Speccy does voltages and temps.  If so, report them there, if they're not already in the above.  I'll go look now.  BIOS voltages would be real useful since if those are bad then that's that.  Example if you are only getting 10.6 on the 12 Volt rail there's no point in doing anything else until the PSU is replaced.  That one symptom will condemn the PSU and you won't have to waste time troubleshooting after that.

Run speccy while computer is not under any load and post results.  Game would be nice, but any report is better than none.  Also I note that PSU is 240 VAC?  What country are you in?  Not USA.  We run 110 VAC.

 

I don't trust your "GameGain" program, but will defer to someone that knows more.  It feels like one of those programs that promise a lot but delivers an additional load on system resources in exchange for nothing.

 

Don't run CCleaner's registry cleaner as it can, and will, delete things that you need.  There's a whole "thing" on reg cleaners, and the short of it is at best they are useless and at worst they break things.  MS did testing on registries that had "bad" entries (useless, old, unnecessary, however you want to define it) and in testing "clean" registry computers ran EXACTLY the same performance as "dirty" registry computer.  ZERO performance gain, but I've screwed-up numerous computers before I wised-up and quit using them.

 

Also I note your PSU has "passive PFC" (Power Factor Correction) instead of "active PFC" which is what you want. I used to know the difference, but forgot.  What I DO remember is active PFC is a must-have for efficiency and passive is the same as having nothing.  Meaning you'll be lucky to get 70% of your 550 Watts out of that PSU.  70% of 550 is 385 watts.

Idk what VAC is, you have to explain that to me, because im not really experienced with these kind of things. If it helps, Im from Romania.

I dont use CCleaner, it was installed because of Speccy or MTB.

I'll come back in a few minutes with speccy running without any load and with the game.

And yes thats my power source, idk if it is the problem, but its 1 year old, i want to know for sure which component is causing my pc to lag.

Unfortunately, the MiniToolBox log shows that your hard disk has several bad blocks. This is most likely a sign that your hard disk is dying, even if your S.M.A.R.T. values are good.

Speccy shows some voltages and the 12 volt rail is slightly off.  I asked for BIOS voltages earlier and now we need them even more to see for certain if there's a problem with voltages.

 

Speccy shows you have this installed:
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/uninstall/1054/RelevantKnowledge.html

 

This link says it's Spyware.  I have no idea what it is or if it's useful.  I'd get rid of it.

 

I asked about cleaning CPU and Heat Sink, and also Video Card.

 

Speccy shows you have a game installed to a "D:" partition/drive.  Some programs do not like to run from anything other than the "C:" drive.  I've never found a good reason to have multiple windows partitions on the same drive.  One option is to uninstall the game software from the D: partition and reinstall it on C:.  If it were my computer, example if I got it used, I'd migrate all data to C: and delete the other partitions.  Additional confusion for no apparent benefit.

 

American standard household electricity is 110/120 Volts AC (Alternating Current).  220/240 VAC is used only for heavy appliances like electric ovens.  Other countries have different standard voltages.  It means that you cannot purchase a computer PSU intended for an american market, and anyone helping you needs to know that you are not in the US, so your hardware options are different.

 

Bad power and heat cause freezes and shut downs like you experience.  Sudden shutdowns cause system and data file corruption and file corruption can cause any symptom imaginable, so if you are wondering why we are talking about heat and power when you think you have a game-won't-run-right problem, the reason is because A can most definitely cause B.  FYI at this point my instinct is your problem is heat or power.

 

Have you run chkdsk?  If not, then run it.  Also run defrag.

 

Also Speccy reports you are running two monitors off one video card?  If you don't need the 2nd monitor, I'd pull one for troubleshooting purposes.

 

What game are you trying to run on your Sempron Single-Core processor?

 

Just noticed Speccy shows your video card temp as 40C, which seems high to me for a computer at idle.

 

Has the machine ever been infected?

Unfortunately, the MiniToolBox log shows that your hard disk has several bad blocks. This is most likely a sign that your hard disk is dying, even if your S.M.A.R.T. values are good.

Bad Blocks can signal the end of a HD's life, or they can be sectioned-off and the HD can work for years.  I disagree with the phrase "most likely", and would use the phrase "it's possible".  One of Chkdsk's primary functions is to identify bad blocks and segregate them out so the machine does not try to use them.  Otherwise the above is correct.

FWIW:  Chkdsk /r tries to recover data files which may lie on bad sectors.  AFAIK, it doesn't/cannot do any more than that with bad sectors, other than note them.  It cannot/does not segregate bad sectors on a hard drive...a format is the only device for doing such.

 

There is no guarantee that chkdsk /r can actually recover the data files and move them to a good location...but it's the only tool provided by Windows which will make the attempt and has a chance at success.
