Yoga 3 Pro processor runs slow

Q: Yoga 3 Pro processor runs slow

The Yoga 3 Pro seems to run fairly well, but when I ran the test at userbenchmark.com the comment was "17.6% is an extremely low CPU score. It's a wonder that this system was able to run the User benchmark software." I ran the Lenovo Optimizer and it, too, said the processor was running too slow. It offered 2 suggestions to speed it up, but after trying to implement the suggestions a number of times and getting an error message that said it couldn't fix the problem andI should try again on another day, I gave up. The two suggested fixes didn't seem to have anything to do with processor speed, only updating some software. Anyone have a similar problem or know what is going on?

Preferred Solution: Yoga 3 Pro processor runs slow

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Yoga 3 Pro processor runs slow

Use high performance plan and then rerun your benchmarks. Also try Winrar Benchmark and see if CPU usage goes to max CPU and Turbo frequency. With the Intel 4300U on my Tablet, I get 3216 KB/s. You should be able to get at least 2500 KB/s if it's running at full speed. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7475/15521960304_7c4808883d_o_d.png

hi, ive noticed my new notebook is really slow. it has 8GB memory yet struggles to peform basic tasks like browsing.  i have ran "userbenchmark" which gives a really poor score for processor and graphics.  Processor9.74% is an extremely low Desktop CPU score, this CPU can barely handle email and light web browsing.  Graphics2.22% is too low to play 3D games or use CAD packages. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics) its running windows 10 and the processor is Intel Core M-5Y10c is there problem with my notebook or is it just a poor processor? thanks in advance

A:Yoga 3 slow processor

Well you got the Core M processor, they are slightly better than Atom CPU from Intel. Core M performs like CPU from say 5 to 6 years ago in terms of performance. It uses very little power (and puts out very little heat), which is why the Yoga 3 Pro is so thin. So if you are using it for games or cad, then you should return the laptop and get something with more performance.

Hello Everyone, This is my first post in the community, which is also why i might not be in the right section. Apologies in advance! I work in IT, and i help manage different Lenovo Thinkpads. We current have 20-30 Yoga 370 in our network.  On more than one occasion i've experienced this model running extremely slow. So what i did was, i pulled up the task mgr, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary. CPU was running steady at 40%ish, and plenty of RAM available. Reboot didn't resolve anything. The only thing which fixes the issue is unplugging the Docking Cord (USB-C), and plugging it again.  I was wondering if this is a known issue. Because i've experienced it around 10 times, but never frequently on the same machine. It's not the biggest problem, but i would like to know if anyone else has experienced this.  Best regards Jeppe

I have a client with a tricked out Dell xps Studio (6GB memory) who is suffering with very long times to print. Even sending a printer test page from within windows (Vista home premium 64) takes about 30 seconds before the sent notice appears on the screen. The printer is a Epson Stylus Photo1900 (large format printer). No other programs running but background stuff kept to a minimum. I have tried shutting down the spooler and printing direct, but it is slow as well.

I loaded and ran Process Explorer from Sysinternals and the only thing out of the ordinary is the constant opening, running and ending of dllhost.exe. This occurs every few seconds and lasts only for a few seconds.

I know there are discussions in posts elsewhere in the forums of the possible impostor DLLHOST.EXE, and when I left the client's I had set MS Security Essentials to run a full scan to see if it would find anything, but I have not yet been to see the results.

Does anyone else have any ideas on this?

I have a Dell Dimension 3000, running Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3.It has a Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz, with 2GB of RAM. I just did a clean install, and noticed that my computer is very slow and hesitant, and the CPU is running a 100% much of the time. When I went into my Windows Task Manager and looked under the Processes Tab, I noticed that frequently the svchost.exe is running 99%, and that sometimes System Idl Process also runs about 99%. Not both at the same time but would be one of those when the CPU is running 100%. I don't know what those are. Is there a procedure for me to isolate what is causing my CPU to run high a lot of the time??

Problem Description
All the sudden yesterday my XP laptop started running at a glacial pace, for no apparent reason. The fan runs continuously, the processor activity is high (20-100%) without anything running. Rebooting doesn't help. When I access the hd from another machine on the network it seems to write normally. The machine boots normally, but as soon as the desktop appears it starts to bog waaaaay down. Not much disk activity, no network activity, but the processor and fan are running constantly. Just opening a drop-down menu is a several-second wait. Everything works, just painfully slowly.

Basic Info
I have a 2 year old dell Inspiron 8600 laptop running win xp sp3, 2 gb ram, 80 gb hd with 12 gb free. I have Kapersky antivirus, hardware firewall on a network (software firewalls in kapersky and windows turned off). It's a work machine with only one game on it (installed a year ago). I run mostly biz software -- office, adobe creative suite, etc.

What I've triedCleaned out the fan and vents as best I could without taking the whole thing apart
ran a virus scan -- nothing
Downloaded and Ran malwarebytes -- it found one trojan horse and removed it, but that didn't seem to fix anything
I went back to a restore point several days ago, and it said there were no changes so it couldn't restore anything

Hi tonyst,

Step 1

Please disable Kaspersky Antivirus temporarily as it may interfere with the fixes. Remember to re-enable it back before posting back the logs.

Please navigate to the system tray on the bottom right hand corner and look for a sign.
Right click on it and select Pause Protection.
Select By User Request.
A popup will now show that Kaspersky Antivirus is disabled and a sign like this will now be shown.

Step 2

Please download Combofix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

Save it to your desktop.
Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.

As part of its process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. You will see the following message if Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is not installed.



With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

Hi, guys. Windows 7 64-bit user here, and first-time poster.

For a little more than six months now my computer has behaved strangely during startup. It runs incredibly slowly and at 100% CPU usage for about two minutes, then gradually slacks off to about 85% for the next two minutes, then spikes to 100% again, falls to 65% or so, spikes again, etc. until the CPU reaches a normal activity level about 15 minutes after boot.

I've unsuccessfully taken the following steps to figure out what's wrong:
I removed unnecessary services from my msconfig startup window.
I used both NOD32 and BitDefender to scan for viruses (no results).
I looked through Task Manager for obvious issues.
I checked my chipset and wireless drivers.

Where I've had some success was checking Resource Manager and finding that the processes svchost.exe(NetworkService) and svchost.exe(netsvc) are behind the spikes. Ending them returns CPU activity to normal. This leads me to believe that the problem arises during network connection, so I tried turning off my wireless adapter and made a hard LAN connection to a friend's computer. Sure enough, the slowness and 100% CPU activity I normally only experience during startup repeated itself. There's a similar, but shorter spike (only about ten seconds) every time I start Google Chrome, no matter how long the computer's been running. The 15 minutes of high CPU activity that I get after turning my computer on also happen when I re-log in after lett... Read more

Welcome aboard I run a registry cleaner regularlyBad idea....Registry cleaners/optimizers are not recommended for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries req... Read more

I have to say, building my own PC has not been worth the disappointment and frustration that I constantly experienced. I have performed upgrade after upgrade, and my PC still can not give me decent performance. I upgraded the video card, and bumped the memory to 3 gigs, but it still ran like a dog.


So I figured the only thing left had to be the processor. It was running a Pentium D 2.66 mhz. I purchased a Wolfdale 2.66 Dual Core, and installed it. The BIOS recognized the new processor, but to my dismay, Windows XP took even longer to boot up.

I sat down and timed the boot up, and it takes a ridiculous 5 minutes before I can start using the PC. Even worse, I can rarely have more than 2 applications open at the same time. If I am burning a CD, Excel will freeze or white screen on me. Sometimes I enter stuff in IE and it takes 2 seconds later for the text to show up. Yahoo messanger is the worst. I get freeze ups like every 10 minutes.

I also notice if I'm running too many things, I will often get a BSOD and the computer reboots immediately.

Any suggestions why this thing runs so horrible? Dual core processor, decent video card, 3 gigs of RAM, and I still can't freaking play Civ 4 without framerate probs!!


Additional note: I recently reformatted the hard drive, and it is running Norton, AVG virus and Dameon tools on startup.

I have a HP z556 Home theatre PC that I put an Intel dg33bu motherboard in. It use to have a Core2duo 2.13GHz processor and I upgraded a couple days ago to an E8500 3.16GHz Core2duo.

Since I've upgraded:At least one of my case fans is running 100%. With the old processor the same fan would ramp up and down (kind of annoying) but it wasn't as annoying as a fan spinning away at 100%.

When doing a reboot through Windows it doesn't startup. It shuts down but when it tries to start up, the screen stays black. If I hold the power button to shut it off, then press the power button to turn it back on, it starts up fine.
I have the latest BIOS and this processor is supported by this motherboard.

What could the problem be?

I'm mostly concerned with why the machine doesn't startup after a Windows reboot but the fan would be nice to know too.

Alright, so today i replaced my dad's powersupply and got an "Error Loading OS" Message for his system when it previously had XP on it. So i said forget messing with it ill just put vista on it and call it a day.

After putting the vista disk in it seemed to go pretty slow compaired to how it was on mine. But in the end it took about 1hr to 1hr and 1/2 to install completely. After installing it took forever to do the first boot up and after it booted i could not move the mouse more than one direction every 2 minutes or so. The system would apparently freeze or become completely bogged down for no reason.

So, this is a fresh install of Vista on a fairly good machine. Any reason why it is running as though it has the worst specs in the world?

PS: It runs fine in Safe Mode.....

The System configuration is as follows:

OS: Vista Ultimate 64bit
MoBo: Asus P5NSLI
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Graphics Cards: Nvidia 8600GT x2 SLI
Hard Drives: 3 various, one 80, one 200g, one 300g
RAM: 4gigs of corsair or something of the form.. namebrand to say the least

I Cant think of what else might help... it is doing this for NO REASON what so ever that i can find.

Since Firmware 4.04 the Thunderbolt Docking runs hot.It smells like slow "burning" plastic. My whole office smells like "burning plastic" after 2-3 hours in use.I have checked all items and found that the plastic smell comes from Thunderbolt Docking.After Update to Firmware 4.4 nothing changed. It smells and I'm afraid that it burns some day. I have changed the Docking to another new one. Flashing firmware to 4.4 and same issue. The new one also smells after 2-3 hours like burning plastic. That's not normal ... My configuration is:- Yoga 370 connected with USB-C (only USB-C connected for Data and Power)- two EIZO Monitors connected on Thunderbolt-3 Anyone have this same problem?

Hi good people!

For the last 7 days i'm having problems i'm about to describe:

But then Windows refuses to start and messege apears ''Windows fails to start,due to recent hardware or software change...'' I get the option Starup repair,and when scan is finished,Restore button apears. I HAVE TO restore it to ''the time it worked corectlly''.That is the only way to get it working for next 12 hours. And then everything starts again...
Before you ask,I've upadated EVERYTHING,drivers,direct X,latest Win updates,scaned it for viruses etc etc. Nothing seems to help.
Any ideas? I'm desperate cos I know i did everything I could. And that is why i'm asking for proffesionals opinion

Hello smart folks,

My Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop used to boot up in under a minute. Now, it takes several minutes and any time I run a program it takes a long time for them to boot up. And, heck, I see delays in programs while they're in use.

I just upgraded from 512MB to 2 GB of RAM hoping that would help. It didn't.

I've followed your steps and I think my computer is a lot safer now. Thank you.

I run Norton antivirus.

I feel like the biggest contributor to my laptop's slowness is Enterprise Office 2007. Some little searching magnifying glass seems to always be on and my computer's hard drive seems to grind a lot even when the computer should be sitting there idle.

If I open a Microsoft Office 2007 program like Word, Excel, or Outlook, they open REALLY slowly.

Also, can you please recommend a good registry scrubber? I like freeware, but I'll buy it if I must. That RegCure program seems like a scam. Below is my HiJack This log. I've also included the start up log below it since my start up is so slow.

Thank you.

I'm trying to solve a "slow computer" problem for a friend...The stand-alone version of AVG Anti-Spyware runs slowly on his machine and does not not scan smoothly, stalling a bit every 5 to 15 seconds. This happens even when running in safe mode. Occasionally the scanner will freeze right after I begin scanning, forcing me to do a cold reboot (ctrl-alt-dlt doesn't work).I have run other virus checkers and the system - 1.4 GHZ Gateway desktop, XP Pro SP2 - looks clean, but seems like it should run a bit faster than it is. Nothing unusual is running on startup or via processes, at least nothing I can see in msconfig. A recent "HijackThis" logfile doesn't appear to show anything malevolent.Another weird symtptom is that the Windows "chimes" sound is sometimes cut off when the PC boots up.What could be causing this? Thanks...Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

If you are sure no malware issues Please follow these steps : ? Defrag your system. Disk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk when a file is opened. Disk Defragmenter consolidates fragmented files and folders on the hard disk so that each occupies a single space on the disk. This speeds up reading and writing to the disk. Read "The Importance of Disk Defragmentation" for instructions.? Check for disk errors by running CHKDSK. CHKDSK can be run from the Recovery Console, the command prompt or through the Windows GUI.To run chkdsk from the Win XP GUI see these instructions.To run chkdsk from the command prompt see these instructions.To run chkdsk from the Recovery Console see these instructions.The problem with running CHKDSK from Win XP is that it will not check files that are being used by Windows. Using chkdsk in the Recovery Console with the /r switch is a way to resolve this.? Check for damaged, altered or missing critical system files by running the System File Checker. If SFC discovers that a protected file has been damaged, altered or missing, it restores the correct version of the file from the cache folder.

During the download I noticed that the PC was running pretty hard and I checked in the Task Manager for processor and RAM usage, noticing that the processor was used at around 50% of capacity but RAM memory was used at 1.9 GB, that's around 98%.

I restarted the laptop and run the download again. Memory usage was about 1.4 GB. Then, I tried to open Firefox and go check something on a website and everything crashed. I unplugged the laptop (n00b way of solving things) to shut it down and then started it back. At this point I noticed that it took like half an hour to boot and show desktop. Also, everything was running extremely slow.

I inserted my Windows 7 disc and ran through the `Repair Windows` wizard. I left it like that for about an hour and it was just telling me `Attempting Repairs`. I stopped it at that point and then re-installed Windows by formatting the partition.

My laptop have been running for like an hour now, getting really hot and with the fan on full settings while a **bleep** ton of **bleep** is running on my computer. I have these problems occasionally. The fan spinning up for no reason and under light usage is a regular issue. How do I fix this? Picture: http://imgur.com/a/stH9V

helloMy computer runs slow. I have done all of the logical steps to insure that there are no problems with virus, adware, defragmentation, etc. The bottom line is that it take time to open folders and startup applications. Sometimes when starting an application, it freezes and I have to open task manager to stop the process and kill the application. Then, all of a sudden, it works. Note, once the applications start, they run fine with no problems. It just seems that the system is sluggish when it has to "find" things. So that leads me to believe that I may have a possible problem with the NTFS table. Is there any way to check if this is the problem? Is it possible that I simply do not have enough resources? (note, I have included specifications below).Any advice are suggesstions are well appreciated.My system is:Antec 900 - 650W ATX Intel DQ35JOE Intel Core 2 DUO Q6600 Quad Core 4gb 2gb 800mhz DDR2 DIMM 500gb SATA 7200rpm (255GB remain available for use)Alpha Dog gForce FX 8800 512 pci XP Pro SP3

Well...I would take a look in Event Viewer for possible clues.How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/ I don't see where you have done anything to check your hard drive (chkdsk /r, manufacturer's diagnostic)...until that's done, I would not be guessing that the NTFS file system is askew without some evidence pointing me in that direction.Chkdsk /r will detect some file system problems and advise of such.http://www.ntfs.com/quest14.htmLouis

hi everyone this is my first time posting here I juest installed windows xp pro with sp2 built in and any program I run uses almost all the cpu i have a amd 2600+ runnisn at 1.92ghz. I read on another fourm that there is a patch or something to fix it. can you help?

A:win xp sp2 runs slow

Have you connected to MS Windows website and made sure that you are current on all updates?
If no- that would be the first step as that is where the patch is usually put.

But more importantly- what type of programs are you running and how much RAM memory do you have? If there are a lot of programs running in the back ground- new programs may suffer in performance.
