Let me clarify, there has been a bunch for weird stuff going on with my laptop. First off all, sometimes the BIOS screen loads fully and then the screen goes black. After a few seconds the loading BIOS screen pops up again. I'm running a BIOS mod called Prema so I wasn't sure if it was a problem or this is just how it reacts.


Secondly, sometimes when i put down the screen of my laptop it doesn't go into sleep. And sometimes when it does go into sleep and I try to get it up and running, it doesn't respond. It just gives me a black screen. When this happens I end up forcing it to shut off (by holding the power button off until it gets cut off).

The most recent of the problems is that services like 'Tablet service for Professional driver' which i can end in task manager and 'Services and Controller app' which I cannot end, are showing me a high load. Considering I have a relatively fast processor (a desktop i7-6700), I'm pretty sure that if these services were working correctly, this would not be the case.


My theory is that something has infected my computer and hijacked these processes. Not sure though, I have run a few malware scanners like Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro and Adwcleaner. Nothing has shown up in these scans but I'm 90% sure that there's something unwanted on my system.


Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, I've always come to Bleeping Computer for my anti-malware needs.
