T450s - Super slow when running on battery despite...

Q: T450s - Super slow when running on battery despite...

Hello,

I got a T450s, brand new and everytime I am not plugged in (it's a laptop after all) the computer litteraly slows down to a point where it is unusable, a simple key (space, a letter, a number) will usually take 3-5 second and sometimes up to 20 seconds to register, no software is usable, CAD, video playback and authoring, completely useless when on battery. The thing is this is a laptop, I WILL use it on battery. That is despite me choosing high performance in the Lenovo power manager.

Anyway I can fix this?

Preferred Solution: T450s - Super slow when running on battery despite...

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.)

I have a Toshiba Satellite  running windows 7. I got the computer from my father and had to remove a lot of malware and games. I wish i could do a factory reset but i do not have any of the factory disks. It seems like there are a lot of processes running and the physical memory is almost always at 100%. Any help would greatly be appreciated . Thanks in advance.

You can first try this:
http://www.howtogeek.com/74523/how-to-disable-startup-programs-in-windows/
 
Then you can try removing all the junk files on it using CCleaner or BleachBit or something similar. If that doesn't help, I would recommend dual booting this PC with Ubuntu 14.04. I actually published a tutorial on doing that here:
http://69.107.93.24/Blog/52015/
 
You could then use that as your primary OS.

I recently cleaned my computer of dust using compressed air now the cpu is running very very slow.

A:CPU is running super slow now

Do you have benchmarks, or any readings what so ever to prove this. If not that's where we need to start, if you clean it up it should be able to have more room to breathe so it should stay relatively cool, can you monitor temperatures?

Is there a specific application you where able to run amazingly fast and now it doesn't work like it was before?

I recommend you going back to your tower and make sure everything is nicely connected and plug in.

I posted on another site that offered help, but no one has even looked at my post yet. They required a RSIT run, which the log.txt is below. I also have hijack this and can run it real quick if you still need it. I run Super AntiSpyware , like I always do to see if there is a problem and also MBAM, but running both and clearing them didn't help any. Maybe it isn't malware, but there is definitely a problem because it.....is.....soooooo.......sLooooooowww!! Please let me know if you need that hijack too. I was just under the impression that RSIT and HIJACK THIS are the same type program.
I would appreciate ANY help. Thank you. Kimberley

First time in ages.. My PC is running SO incredibly slow. Not sure what is going on. I have a good anti-virus on it so unlikely a virus slipped through although my PC is running painstakingly slow. It takes ages for a page to load and on top of that many times in a day the pages freeze, and then after a little bit unfreeze. Very annoying. This only started happening today but I find it very frustrating. Can anyone help me? I do not want to run EasyClean as have been told this can sometimes delete necessary items from the registry.

Thanking you in advance.

A few days ago I was watching TV on my computer (Media Center) when everything went black and froze up for 5+ minutes. I had to do a Ctrl-Alt-Del to get it unfrozen. When I re-started it I got a message saying "The system has recovered from a serious error" or something like that. I immediately ran Spybot and Avast anti-virus. Spybot came back clean and Avast came back with a worm/virus and one adware which I moved to the chest. The same day the latest Windows Update downloaded and installed.

Ever since all that happened my internet is either veryyyy slow or comes back that it can't load the webpage I requested. When I get the can't load I click on refresh and bang the page usually comes up instantly. Just to give you an example when I tried to register on your website the first 2 times I clicked on submit registration I got the page cannot display then finally the 3rd time it went thru. This is just so frustrating and I'm not sure where to look or what to do to troubleshoot the problem . We have a second computer in our house hooked up to the same cable via router and there are no problems with that computer at all. I also tried to do a system restore and it won't do it...... it goes thru all the steps then when the computer comes back up it says the restore could not be completed.

Please help me figure this out !!

Thanks

http://forums.techguy.org/54-malware-removal-hijackthis-logs

Explain your situation and post the log .
If you can find in the avast log what virus and adware it found that would be an item you should include.
It sounds like the virus may have changed some things on your computer which are causing this problem.
Also, empty your temp internet files , and any cookies you do not absolutely need (tools , internet options/ general ) You may just have some bad pages cached.

Its Windows XP pc that has a stock Hard drive of 70 GB and stock ram of 256 (just to give you an idea of how old it is) its ONLY used for web surfing (as no one with a brain would try doing anything "heavy" with those specs). Yet unlike day one (when it ran just fine) now it cant even do that. WIndows start up is slow but bearable, clicking on IE literally takes 5 mins before the browser finally pops and about twice as long for a page to fully load (despite having great broadband internet). Also when IE is tarting a get a pop up saying most of my memory is being used (which is probably why its slow). Yet if I close out of IE (which isnt even updated to IE 8 I believe) and try Firefox instead IT runs just fine and no "low memory" pop up. So I'm gonna upgrade its RAM to 2gb (the max its motherboard can handle) and see if that makes a difference in speed. While Im waiting for tha to arrive may as well make sure viruses or malware are ruled out (after all like i said on day one it it functioned "fast" and fine, so SOMETHING had to change between now and then to slow it don). Lastly it still has 60 GB free out of 70 GB total which means hardly any room is being used yet it runs as slow as it does.
So Ive done the scans here are the logs (theres lots of them):

Hello

I'm totally nervous about this. I'm not that smart about computers. My computer started running very slow yesterday. It seems to hesitate when doing anything. In the web browser,the little thing I call the 'thinking circle' goes around and around for a minute then firefox will go into a "not responding" mode. Another odd thing is Netflix instant is skipping. Yesterday morning i could watch a movie in IE and check email in Firefox simultaneously. By 5pm i could barely do one at a time. I ran Norton Virus and some sort of Norton deep clean thing. It turned up nothing. But I have this weird feeling it is a virus or something. Any help would be appreciated. I just started an online class and i don't have the $150 to take this into the computer guy.

Thank you in advance

My PC is running very slowly all of a sudden. It will peak to 100% CPU usage for no reason, and my McAfee virus scanner will come up and say it has been turned off for no reason (6-10 times daily). I have run McAfee after ensuring it is fully up to date, and also MalWare and neither of them are finding any problems. I have nothing major running that I can find, and this happens when trying to open something as basic as FireFox.

Any help is greatly appriciated.

My friends computer is running really slow all of the sudden. It's maybe a year old and he has Windows XP-Home and is currently using America Online 8.0 as is ISP. I defragmented his harddrive already. I'm thinking he must have all kinds of spyware on his computer or something so I downloaded Spybot S&D and it downloaded and installed but for some reason at the very end when it said finish and scan, and I clicked ok, I got this Error message that said access denied or something like that. And when I click on the shortcut icon on the desktop it wont open up-I get the hourglass for a second and then it goes away but nothing opens. Any suggestions on what I should do or what the problem might be? Any info would be helpful.
Thanks!
 

A:Computer running super slow!

Try rebooting into Safe Mode and see if Spybot can do its work in there. Also download AdAware from http://www.lavasoftusa.com update and run that in Safe Mode as well. Delete all his Temporary Internet files, Cookies and History. Right click the AOL icon in the notification area, go to Utilities and Clear Browser Cache.

It started few days ago. My laptop became very hot and very slow with just nothing apart from google chrome with 1 tab open and Windows Live Messenger running. I have tried running scans with MBAM, superantispyware, avira to run the scans and no virus were found. I had to use Balanced mode and even when watching a movie it lags every few minutes. is there any solution apart from formatting? the hard disk part is the hottest and sometimes it just shuts off due to overheating.

I am using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, core i5 2.27 GHz, 4GB DDR3.

I also ran a complete system scan with Avira and no virus was found. I can't get to the bottom of why this thing is so slow..I checked ram with Memtest and it showed no errors..The computer runs fine in safe mode with networking.

I see you have only 2 GB of ram and thats its fairly slow - that might be your "bottleneck". Win 7 likes lots of ram. And You are running 64 Bit windows so you need even more ram. You dont mention your processors speed in your "System Specs"

My computer was recently infected with spysheriff. After utilizing the self-help guide from this forum, I learned to remove it with smithfruadfix. Although spysheriff is gone now, my computer is running super slow. What is even more trouble some is that there is a reccuring JBHGQ1.dll identified by the Security Task Manager program. Removal of it using Security Task Manager removes it temporary but pops back up after a short while. What should I do?

My Dell Inspiron laptop came with Windows 7 installed in 2011. I had Windows 10 installed via download in August 2015. At first the speed was fine. Now my laptop is so slow that it has become almost unusable. I often click on something and have to wait 10 to 20 seconds for a reaction. Just shutting down can take 5 minutes. Looking in the task manager I see under Processes that my memory is 92% full, and the System process is using more than 180 Mb of memory. I have tried many things to speed up my laptop. I tried modifying the paging file size for virtual memory to a lower size, but then I kept getting low memory warnings every few minutes and my apps would close if I ignored the warnings. I end up needing a large paging file size (8000 to 16000 Mb), way more than the recommended size of 1396 Mb, to avoid low memory warnings. So of course Windows 10 is shuffling a lot of data back and forth to the disk, slowing everything down. I eliminated every app from opening on Startup that I don't need, although of course I don't know what many of the apps listed in the Startup menu do so I leave them alone. My anti-virus eats a lot of memory but I need that. Since I'm in Europe we don't have Cortana so that's not a problem. Can anyone recommend ways to reduce the high demand on memory by the System process? If so, please help, and using layperson's terms. I have a Ph.D. but not in computer engineering.

A:System running super slow with Windows 10

Hi, certainly you're quite right that if your PC thinks it's starved of memory it will be very busy swapping disk to RAM & v. versa. (page file).

Can you please
a. say how much RAM is equipped on your PC
b. post a screen shot (picture) of your task manager full screen height - click on the 'Memory' tab to organise by highest at top

Have a look at any programs you recognise that are taking up a lot of RAM. Do you need these running?
Thanks

Hi, silverbear_87

Welcome.

You are overprotecting your computer. Remove all Security Programs, except for your Antivirus. Yes, Zone Alarm should go also.

There is no evident malware in the log. Go to Start and right click on My Computer. Check the amount of RAM detected. Is it consistent with what is suppose to be installed?

Here are some routine maintenance practices that you should do on a regular basis to keep your machine running efficiently. Hopefully going through these steps will solve the problems you are having with the pc being slow:

Disk Cleanup:

http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_cleanup_utility.htm

Defrag your HD:

http://artsweb.bham.ac.uk/artsit/Info/Guides/GoodPractice/defrag-win2kxp.htm

Run chkdsk:

To use Chkdsk, click Start and My Computer. Right-click the hard drive you want to check, and click Properties. Select the Tools tab and click Check Now. Check both boxes. Click Start. You'll get a message that the computer must be rebooted to run a complete check. Click Yes and reboot. Chkdsk will take awhile, so run it when you don't need to use the computer for something else.

Remove unnecessary startups

This should be done through the System Configuration Utility. Go to Start > Run and type in msconfig.
Click OK or hit the Enter key.

Click on the "Startup" tab and remove the check by the items that you have determined are unnecessary. Click "Apply" then "Close"

You will be prompted to restart. Go ahead and ... Read more

A:Computer Running Super Slow.....Just want to have checked out

Hello and Welcome to Bleeping Computer!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems. I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE:...

First the story:
My friends computer used to have just his user on there. But some people, myself included, at one time did not have our own computers so we borrowed his sometimes. He has a Pentium processor and I think several people using one computer slowed it down. It took several minutes to switch users sometimes (after we enabled the guest user for us borrowing it so we couldn't install any programs and slow it down more). We had to force restart it (hold down the power button) several times. One time we accidentally dropped it and had to replace the hard drive. It still ran slow (not sure if it was immediately) after replacing the hard drive. It's ran into several problems. We ran Startup Repair and CHKDSK several times. Finally, yesterday it wouldn't boot at all we'd get the Windows 7 boot logo, it would sit there for a few seconds, then it would shut down. Startup repair gave the error noOSinstalled. I booted from an old disk that was a windows 7 repair disk last night EST (not sure when or on what computer the disk was made), and it recognized the Windows 7 partition but then still gave that error. Finally I opened the Command Prompt via the CD and ran CHKDSK /F /R /X. It started out slow. Overnight it only advanced about 1 percent but several thousand file records. The file records are almost 50% complete but it still says only 4 percent.
Why? It's not that large of a hard drive (500GB i think). Also is it safe to stop it at this point? I want to try to boot from... Read more
