Q: Solved: Computer suddenly slowing down few minutes after turning on

I have recently done a system restore to a factory state. After reinstalling all of the programs I noticed that right after restarting my computer it actually is pretty fast, which can be especially seen by rght clicking on desktop or opening folders. However, few minutes after running it suddenly slows down simple things like right clicking on the desktop make me wait few seconds. Right now my computer has been running for few minutes already and I can see the text lagging a little as I type.
I have Avast, and I did a quick scan with malwarebytes just to make sure, but it didn't detect anything.
When I check the task manager I noticed that before it starts lagging, the CPU is below 10% if im not doing anything and even when when using some programs its pretty much always below 60%, however after it starts lagging, it jumps to 100% if I do as simple things as right click. I disabled most start up programs, but it didn't help. Any help would be appreciated.

***UPDATE***
I began to suspect overheating and so I decided to clean out the fan. So far no problems with lag anymore. ^^

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.)

Woke up one morning after shutting down the computer for the night, and it wouldn't start. Everything is still plugged in, the settings are no different than what they were when it was working. The green light at the back of the power supply is on, as is the one in the front. When we unplug the power supply, the light at the back stays on for over a minute (but I don't know if that's normal). And sometimes the light in front is blinking, sometimes it's not.
The disc drive still seems to be trying to do something, though it only lasts for a couple of seconds. Everything else isn't responding at all. It doesn't look like anything else is doing anything at all, and there is none of the usual sounds that mean the computer is starting. It's totally silent. The monitor will stay on long enough to say it isn't connected, and then turn off.
This same thing happened about a week ago, and it randomly started working the same day that it stopped, we aren't sure why. We had to turn it off last night because of a storm, and now its doing the exact same thing as before. The whole time in between these two incidences it was working just fine, as long as we didn't turn it off.
Please help if you can.

Hello, and thank you for reading this.
 
As of just today, for some weird reason, my computer has just started to hiccup and freeze out of nowhere, and it's more prominent with any program that uses the internet (i.e. Firefox, Steam, etc), but it freezes up the entire computer along with the program. 
 
This is especially aggravating as just yesterday, my computer was working absolutely fine with no hitches or sudden slow downs, but by today, it just starts to act this way, despite me doing anything to the computer at the time.  I have also ran a complete virus scan twice to no avail, and I tried using System Restore, only for it to fail.
 
I'm currently running under Windows Vista Home Premium x64. I've attached a HijackThis Log, if anyone can read that.

I would hope that this doesn't turn out to be a hardware issue, so if this is something of a software issue, I would hope I could fix this, as I really need my computer as it has important school files and such.

Hi, brand new user from Canada here.  I Looked at a few topics to see what I stumbled upon and I was impressed! Happy to be a new member and hope to use this site often! (I know this isn't introduction, I just find it more polite to say hi before asking from you guys!)
Well there we go, recently my gaming computer started slowing down, skipping frames when the action became intense (Sc2 Extreme settings full Zerg army, for exemple), which it didn't ever do before! I'm having trouble finding what might be the issue and it's starting to bug me. So I came for hints! 
As you can probably tell by the topic's location I'm running Windows 8, the specs should be detailled in the picture attached with the topic. Other than that I guess I'll include a OOKLA speedtest and the webpage describing the computer's hardware. I've ran CCleaner and repaired. Did a system restore from before the supposed slowdown time. Cleaned the hardware (We own 2 cats, dust and cat hairs were "obstructing" the different vents [Nothing clogged or anything like that, just a little bit dusty]). Other than that I don't remember doing anything else whilst trying to fix my problem! 
I was wondering if it could've been software related (Os mainly) and if not what could be the cause? 
Oh, also, I have Norton Internet Security installed and up to date.
 
Thanks for any help! And if any more reports, results, info, etc. is required I'll be happy to follow instructions! ... Read more

A:My computer suddenly started slowing down

Welcome,
I'd suggest that you put IS into silent ode while gaming. The other choice being to go into your settings and have the program ignore the game.
Security scans can slow things down during rapid game action. Just be very sure you don't leave yourself open to an infection.

First of all:
1. This computer has NO VIRUSES and NO WAREZ and NO INTERNET EXPOSURE.
2. This is not a laptop.
3. My Brother from Michigan sent it to me by mail, and I am guessing that is the reason this computer is so ****ed up.

Ok, well this is a very expensive computer (would be able to play half life 2). And well, after my brother sent me it (by mail), it seems to act like a god damn 80 GB Ipod (low battery life in under 1 hour etc.....). But of course, I plug in the device with all sorts of computer cables, and the same results happen. After a few minutes the god damn computer turns off!

When I set it to 115 V this happens!
(BUT I HEAR A REPETITIOUS BEEPING NOISE)

So I set it to 230 V and well the BEEPING miraculously disappears! But then the monitor doesn't turn on.

*****!!!!!!! I am so mad!!!!!! And I am not a computer genius.

PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME WHY HE SENT IT BY EMAIL. IT WAS MY REQUEST and WELL I WAS SUCH A DUMB*** FOR TELLING HIM TO DO THAT.

Can somebody help me resolve this?

My PC acting weird for last two days. While using it is suddenly turning off. Its not shutting down but just powering off. Sometime it automatically restarts otherwise it just stays off.
If it stays off I cannot start from CPU. I have to turn off UPS then turn it back on before the power button in CPU works.

I had some monitoring utility installed (Nvidia system monitor and Core temp) and both show the CPU, Graphics card and MB temp are in range of 40-60 when this happens.

This happened to me once when I was viewing videos full screen. Other when I was browsing ( I was using Mozilla and with lot of addons, sometimes it consumes a lot of memory and processor.)

I also checked the CPU fans and case fans and they are working.

A friend of my brother accidentally broke his Laptop the other day, and I'm trying to see if there's anything I can do to repair it. I'm not exactly sure what he did, but when he broke it, it apparently broke the monitor and killed the hard drive. Replacing the hard drive isn't that big of a deal, and he says he doesn't mind using an external monitor for it (though the monitor does still work, though it has a large crack through it now... which you can see here http://i371.photobucket.com/albums/oo151/Superbark/Photo-0009.jpg ).

Unfortunately, whenever I try to turn on the computer and run some things like diagnostics and whatnot, the computer keeps randomly shutting down. I think the fan is still working (since I can hear it), so I don't think it is overheating or anything (I could be wrong though, but the bottom never feels scolding hot or anything). Here's the strange thing though; whenever I plug in the Laptop and I have the battery in, the computer will turn on just fine (though it will shut down in a couple of minutes, like I mentioned up above). If I try to turn it on when the battery is out, but still plugged into the wall... it won't turn on. If it is not plugged in, but the battery is placed in, it'll turn on (then shut down in a minute or so). If I have both the battery in and have the Laptop plugged into the wall, then I remove the battery... it'll still work, but still shut down again in a few minutes. What'... Read more

A:Computer SUddenly TUrning off + Trouble Detecting Harddrive

Hi,

There could be several reasons for this. Please list the components in your computer (cpu, motherboard, all drives, power supply watts and brand name, etc...you get the picture) so we can get a better idea of what you have.

Has the drive that is lost worked before?

How long ago did the drive disappear?

Has the drive you are using ever displayed any other problems before now?

Are you using 80 connector cables for the hard drives?

Have you changed anything in the way of hardware recently?

Have you tried to swap the ribbon cable for the drive that works with the one that does not work?

Do you have another extra 80 connector cable to try a new one on this drive?

Oh, since it is just cutting out as you mentioned, try running this program so we can see the temps and voltages. It is free to download:

Speedfan will tell you the temperatures and a whole lot more. It's free

hello! i was recently given a used ASUS G73Jh by a very generous friend after my computer had broken. she claims there wasn't much done on it as she used it mostly for one semester of college and then used it only for hosting online servers to several games
she removed most of her stuff on it, and after i got the computer i also proceeded to delete remnants of some of the games she had installed, and then downloaded my steam games. after running a game that i had installed, a few minutes into it my computer shut itself off completely. i had figured my charging cord had come loose as when i tried to press the power button the power button and the buttons in the left corner flashed blue once and didn't come on, so i unplugged the charger cord and plugged it back in. 
 
i was able to start it up this time but it soon changed to a blue screen with just a few lines of words that flashed past a bit too quickly for me to get the gist of what it said. i got a screen saying it didn't start up correctly and i decided to start windows normally.

Hello,

I'm quite a newbie when it comes to networking and internet stuff, and I would like to ask the experts here for advice about a problem I got recently:

I use a WindowsXP SP2 computer, and I connect to the internet via a modem on the LAN. A router is also connected to my computer and another one in the living room so that we can share a connection. The other computer runs win2k.

I've been having internet problems for a while now, but they alway disappeared when I turned the modem off and then back on. However, a few days ago, I started being unable to browse suddenly after a few minutes of surfing, although I'm still connected to the ISP. I went to my network connections, disabled and enabled the Local Area Connection, and suddenly it worked again, but only for a few minutes. In order to be able to browse the net continuously, I had to disable and enable the LAN every 2 minutes or so, and it gets incredibly annoying.

Whenever I am unable to browse (I'm still connected) and I try to repair my local area connection, the window is never able to get past 'renewing IP address'.

I have phoned my ISP and they don't know what's going on, especially since the other computer is still able to connect properly. I have also tried the winsock fix, IPconfig /flushdns, /release, /renew and a system restore, and the problem is still there.
I appreciate any help I could get on this matter.

A:Certain games slowing down after 10 minutes

As always check to be sure you are not overheating your graphics card.

In nearly every case I find that the game "slows down" after X amount of time there is an overheating problem. If so (it is overheating), take the side of your case off and measure how thick the layer of dust is inside.

I found your site by searching for an error message i received when trying to remove the yahoo photos upload tool from add/remove programs. This program doesn't exist anymore and I like to keep my computer nice and tidy!

Upon further reading of different posts, i found the combofix application and thought it would help another problem i was having with my internet explorer being fussy. Sometimes when I click on links, it opens a "connecting" tab (prefs set to open in new tab) and then opens a new ie window after a good minute. Then I can't close the "connecting" tab, and everything slows up. I usually close ie altogether and it will give me the end now box.

Not sure what this is all about. but i ran combofix and have a log to post if that will help.

Randomly, my internet connection started slowing down. Down to about .32 mb/s in downloading while it normally was around 13.68 mb/s. Scanned for viruses on AVG, tweaked with PC Tune Up by AVG for networking. We upgraded our router to Netgear Wireless Router N300, thinking our router was just giving out. We were still having the same problems. Both of the computers were still slow. I wired my desktop with a cable instead of wireless and it still did the same thing. I know I'm getting the right internet speed cause it randomly started doing this. The internet works perfectly for about 10 minutes then it goes right back down to .32 mb/s. I tried everything to fix my problem. I even tried OpenDNS and that helped for two days. I have no idea what to do to fix this ****. I'm honestly not good with networking to really know much.

I also soft and hard reset my router, modem too. That was my first reaction to the situation.

Symtpoms: I noticed Photoshop was hanging for a minute or so at a time. The file I was working on was quite small so no need to cause any lag issues at all. My SSD was in the red a lot recently, plus I was getting a fair few crashes here and there in other software (but some of those were usual crashes as I'm often pushing my computer in terms of ram/processor). So I thought there were some lurking, large files (y'know those big temp files you get when software doesn't close properly) on the already burdened SSD drive. Figured a restart would help. I ran a little utility to free up some space, that too seemed to hang in a similar fashion to the photoshop hang. So that is noteworthy for sure. I restarted and it never booted. Got as far as the MSI loading screen (press del to enter bios, f9 to set up etc.) and just sat there. Never, ever done that before.
 
Next up I inserted the windows disk and asked it to book from it. It said something about Windows automatic repair. Then the screen was black for ages. No loading icon, nothing.

A week ago, I finally gained a broadband connection (ADSL). It has been working perfectly this week, until now. My system is Windows 2000 Pro. I am running a small network through a Belkin modem, and a proxy server (which hasn't been running during most of these problems, but didn't affect them when I did start it...). I am NOT running a server.

For some odd reason, I'm suddenly having trouble with my system slowing almost to a stop, because services.exe is taking up 100% of my CPU's time. I've updated and run SpyBot, same with Norton Antivirus. I've uninstalled and reinstalled ZoneAlarm, newest version. I've reinstalled the modem drivers.

The problem seems to be related to my broadband connection somehow. When I start the BT Broadband connection, the program has started to hang, slowing the system to a stop, then suddenly freeing it up after 5 - 10 minutes. This happens whether or not NAV and ZA are actually running.

Most recently, I stopped mad.exe, which freed up the system, and it has been working fine . I've never noticed mad.exe in my processes before, and as I mentioned I'm not running 2000 Server. A previous time, stopping mad.exe did not affect the hanging BT Broadband connect dialog...

I also run DUMeter, it doesn't seem to be showing unusual network activity when the slowdown happens, so coupled with the negative scans of NAV and ZA, I don't think it is spyware or a virus.

But what is it? If it is mad.exe... Read more

Spec:
Windows 8 64
128gb SSD
16gb ram
Nvidia GTX 660 card
i7 processor
all made to spec 2 years ago

Symtpoms: I noticed my programs were hanging for a minute or so at a time. The file I was working on was quite small so no need to cause any lag issues at all. My SSD was in the red a lot recently, plus I was getting a fair few crashes here and there in other software (but some of those were usual crashes as I'm often pushing my computer in terms of ram/processor). So I thought there were some lurking, large files (y'know those big temp files you get when software doesn't close properly) on the already burdened SSD drive. Figured a restart would help. I ran a little utility to free up some space, that too seemed to hang in a similar fashion to the other applications. So that is noteworthy for sure. I restarted and it never booted. Got as far as the MSI loading screen (press del to enter bios, f9 to set up etc.) and just sat there. Never, ever done that before.

Next up I inserted the windows disk and asked it to book from it. It said something about Windows automatic repair. Then the screen was black for ages. No loading icon, nothing.

Ideas: Only guess could be hard drive. Only other issue I've had recently is that my secondary HD is failing but that wouldn't cause windows to not start.
I've recently moved country and had to ship it a long way, and recently had a couple of power cuts (which is awful for a PC obviously) and, coz I've moved to the US, the electrical outlets ar... Read more

Have you checked your power settings? Also either download Speed Fan or Hwmonitor. In order to check your temps. Sometimes you will not see a warning for your laptop over heating. It will just shut it's self down.

Both softwares can be download here at Techspot. Under downloads.

Hey BP

Is there a utility to stop my monitor from turning off after a certain of minutes?

i know i can change the power options to never but its hassle

any body know off any?

A:How to stop the display from turning off after a certain minutes

I believe that you are refering to the screensaver that clicks in after x amount of minutes.Go to control panel,click on personalisation,click on screen saver.Their you will see a wait till probably ten minutes.Alter it to what you want.I have mine at twenty but the option is yours.This was more for the older type of monitors to prevent a image being burnt into the screen.

Hope thats what you are refering to.

I am running XP Professional Service pack3 on my home PC. The system is about a 6 years old and has over the last few months become slower and slower. So much so that it takes forever to open a spreadsheet or word document. Opening a webpage takes ages even with an ADSL line.

I use AVG as protection on my system.

I defrag regularly but does not seem to have any effect.

What can I do to cleanup my system (remove junk) and improve performance.

I've having problems with my computer (that I assembled myself) for months. I think I would need to reinstall my OS but I never took the time for it since I would have to reinstall around 1TB of games eek.

It slows down to a crawl, sometimes the music stops and even the time! (on my G15 screen) It mostly happens with Firefox, explorer(.exe) and Steam, they suddenly slow down and Windows tell me they don't answer. I can wait from a few seconds to 10 minutes. It starts randomly while browsing or anything light. I can play games maxed-out perfectly fine and some other apps work (like Foobat2000) in the meantime.

Any log I can send so someone can help me diagnose? I really don't want to reinstall everything, I won't have any time until july-august. Thanks in advance!

Hello,

It has been a long time since I posted a problem here.

I have been using a Toshiba Satellite A505 here in Japan for the past 2 years and I have not encountered any major problem before. the OS is the packaged Windows Vista Home Premium.

In the past month however, I noticed that there have been increasing number of times when the system will slowdown to almost a halt. Some symptoms include choppy video with crackling audio, intermittently not responding web browsers, and unplayable games due to slowness that I can play normally before like CoD Blackops and MoH2010...

My annoyance turned to alarm this morning, when my system just suddenly powered down...so, I hope somebody can help...

I attach here a zip of files generated by MSInfo, Autoruns, and HiJackThis..I continuously run SpyBot S&D Resident and Avast. Avast has not reported anything lately and my last Spybot scanned turned out some minor web cookies which I have already removed. I have not been able to update myself on the processes and services vital in running Vista, but i think that those running services from Toshiba is ok for me...

Thank you for any assistance/suggestion...

Hi,

I know this has been asked a million times on the web already but its seriouslly annoying me now.

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) keeps turning the monitor off after 15 Mins of in-activity.

However - before it does that at 14 Mins and 30 Seconds it sorta does a quick flash - then at exactlly 15 mins does the turning off.

All the power options are set to Never. (I have even created my own power plan for this)

I have never had this problem on this PC before - this is a new install - and since then it has been doing this.

(That makes me reluctant to think its the BIOS or Video Card)

Any ideas would be most welcome?

Thank you in advance.
