Hey! This is my first post here, so please correct me if I posted this in the wrong thread, or if I did something wrong.

 

Hello BleepingComputer pals! For a little background information, I'm not entirely sure how to check the names of the parts in my PC, but I'm somewhat confident it's a software issue rather than hardware. I'm not a computer expert, but I'm understanding enough to be able to google most instructions and preform them if needed to find further information.

 

The computer I build had been running fine up until a few weeks ago, the main game I had played (League of Legends, not that's it's relevant) was able to be run at 200+ FPS, and google tabs would open instantly, chrome would open in less than a second when clicked on. It wasn't really a slow deterioration, it was if someone flipped a switch, and suddenly my game is lucky to get 60 FPS, and google tabs load, and open much slower than before, at the point where sometimes when typing into the searchbar the letters are delayed, coming up a few seconds after typing them in. I've ran my Task Manager while experiencing this, and nothing is capped out, infact, nothing goes higher than 60%, which worries me a little. I'm not knowledgeable enough to know how to fix it, so here I am! I can provide further information if needed, but in the mean time, I'll send what I hope might be useful to someone who understands it better.

I understand that I may not have given much useful information, please let me know how I can help you help me.

Hi, thanks for the info supplied, what is your HDD and how much free space does it have?

 

Open a cmd prompt elevated.  Go to search and type:- command prompt, right click on the returned command prompt and select "run as administrator", copy  ALL of the following cmd, right click anywhere in the cmd window and select "paste" the cmd will append to the prompt, press enter.

 

echo > 0 & systeminfo | find /V /I "hotfix" | find /V "KB" >> 0 & WMIC /Node:localhost /Namespace:\\root\SecurityCenter2 Path AntiVirusProduct Get displayName /format:list >> 0 & wmic PATH Win32_VideoController GET Description,PNPDeviceID /format:list >> 0 & tasklist /v >> 0 & net start >> 0 & echo >> 0 & notepad 0

Have you tried running a checkdisk on the drive?  Enter command prompt  CMD (run as administrator)

chkdsk /F

I had a similar problem.

 

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/672171/requesting-assistance-on-troubleshooting-sporadic-slowdown-of-computer/#entry4455625

 

The problem was that the PSU. Afterwards the most obvious tell was the fact that you could hear a difference in how the disks were working and the fans struggling.

 

How many W is your PSU on? And what's the recommended for your GPU?

Hi, don't know how your similar problem reflects this one since you don't know what the problem is.

 

Mostly looks well, it is a good system (from the specs), only issue (which could cause your problem) is the process discord.exe is not responding, showing two instances. As far as I know there should only be one. I do not use this program so know little about it. Check event viewer for some ideas and maybe their forums, running a chkdsk /F is not a bad idea.

 

This site has some more info:-

The symptoms SocksAndStickers are experiencing are practically identical to the issues I was experiencing + they are the symptoms of a failing PSU.

 

And the obvious reason I posted the thread was so SocksAndStickers could see the troubleshooting done in a similar problem and maybe get some ideas for things to check. Trying to post all that info here would take forever.

 

Can you check the temperatures  so that nothing is overheating? I'd recommend using speccy

Hi, well I will let you solve this one,  since "they are the symptoms of a failing PSU."

I'm not sure how to run the chksk /F 

Whenever I put it in, it simply asks if I want to do it on next boot, but it doesn't show it after restarting.

have you tried "Chkdsk C: /f "

 

substitute C for whatever your drive is called.

 

Here's other ppl who had similar problems with it, maybe it will help
