Ideapad 520s high CPU usage when browsing

Q: Ideapad 520s high CPU usage when browsing

I bout a Lenovo ideapad 520S-14IKB (Type 80X2) Laptop (ideapad) - Type 80X2 - Model 80X2007SRI and I upgraded it with 8 Gb RAM and a Kingston SSD (240Gb). The problem that I had before upgrading and after is that the CPU is being used at 100% or close when I open webpages (regular pages like Facebook, but not evrery page, some simple pages are loading without stressing the CPU). If I share my screen on Skype (which I usually do pretty often), things get even worse, the computer is slow. On my old laptop I don't remember to have had the same problems. Could you recommend me what can I do? The memory stays between 60 - 90% (8Gb RAM). Are there any benchmarks that I can run?

Preferred Solution: Ideapad 520s high CPU usage when browsing

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.)

Hi, lately I'm having some problem with my computer. Loading pages are taking longer than usual and when I play games on face book, graphics are not loading and CPU usage is very high. Can anyone help me with my problem? I ran MBAM and it found some problems and fixed it, but still it's fuzzy.

A:Computer Browsing is slow and CPU Usage is High

Welcome to BC.The first thing you need to do is to identify the process causing the high CPU utilization and where it is running from. Windows Task Manager does not provide enough information. These are tools to investigate running processes, services and gather additional information to identify them or resolve problems:Process ExplorerSystem ExplorerProcessHacker - (requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or above to use)AnVir TaskManager FreeAutorunsProcess MonitorWindows Service CommandersvchostViewerThese tools will provide information about each process, CPU usage, file description and its path location. Most of them are stand-alone apps in a zip file so no installation is necessary.-- System Explorer provides a security check of running processing using their online security database when you first launch the program. Just press the Security Scan tab at the top, then click Start Security Check. After the check you can click the link to See the results of the security check >>. Keep in mind, that the check is not a guarantee of what is or is not detected as malware. -- Process Explorer shows two panes by default: the upper pane is always a process list and the bottom pane either shows the list of DLLs loaded into the process selected in the upper pane, or the list of operating system resource handles (files, Registry keys, synchronization objects) the process has open. In the menu at the top select View > Lower Pane View to change between DLLs and Handles.Some vi... Read more

Hi sorry I could not get back to last couple of days. Anyhow I used Firefox and was able to download DDS (for some reason Chrome would not download that). I also deactivated my CD drive with DeFrogger, then ran a DDS scan (at the bottom you will the txt), and ran GMER. GMER stalled as usual, then took your suggestion and unchecked the three additional boxes(Devices, Sections and Files). GMER did not find any modifications, was the end message. I am attaching the DDS scan. Should I activate the CD driver using the DeFrogger Thanks.

For some reason while i browse the internet lsass.exe increases in memory usage little by little until after a couple hours it will reach up to 300,000k+. After a reboot it goes back to 4,000 until i start chrome or internet explorer again. It only increases when browsing the web, not when playing online games or anything else.

Any help in fixing this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Good day everyone,I just recently bought a new laptop which is a lenovo ideapad 110-14isk. When I booted it up, I noticed that it can't respond quickly so I opened task manager and saw that disk usage is always at 100%. Due to this, even shutting down takes a long time and seldom I force it to shut down because it is very unresponsive. I observed the laptop for a few days and found out that windows update was slowing it. I disabled the Windows Update Service, and when I rebooted it, the disk usage is at normal levels. So my question is, how can I update my laptop? and is there any way to use Windows Update without the laptop lagging? Hope you can help me. Thanks in advance.

I don't know if my barely 1 week old laptop is defect or if these Harman speakers are of exceptionally bad quality, but I simply cannot have the speakers on for a moment since there's constantly a static background sound coming from them. The only way to fix this seems to be to turn them off, but sometimes even turning off the speakers gives me this static sound. Should I bring in my laptop for repairs? The sound quality is also very poor. I've had a cheaper ASUS and HP in the past and their speakers were MUCH better quality, so I didn't think a more expensive laptop would give me this issue...

Your laptop will turn on and Novo Menu will be displayed. Please go to Bios Setup and look for security settings. BTW. You can create an installation media using Windows Media Creation Tool.

Hi there, I have a quick question regarding Lenovo IdeaPad 520S battery change.I purchased a new unit in May 2018 (type 81BL009-GUS) and only realized that it came with a 2 cell 30Wh battery. I understand that some of the 520S comes with a much larger battery like 3 cell 52.5Wh. Can I check if I can change the battery on my own? The 52.5Wh battery is much more attractive (8 - 10 hour life). Where can I purchase this battery? I called Lenovo Sales / Support, but they refused to sell me the larger battery. Thanks!

And if it is, where can I buy the keyboard, how expensive would it be and how can I install it? Thanks!

Hi! I'm having an issue with my new laptop and I really hope someone can help me with possible solutions or at least explanations. Thank you in advance for reading about my problem  In short, I've recently purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad 520S laptop, with the following specs: Intel® Core? i7-7500U 2.70 GHz, Kaby Lake, 14", Full HD, IPS, 8GB, 256GB SSD, nVIDIA GeForce 940MX 2GB I was looking for a good compromise between mobility and performance (with a little bit of gaming capacity thrown in), and this is the best I could find within my budget. And, while overall the laptop works as well as I'd imagined, I'm having a really frustrating problem on the gaming front.Specifically, while playing a rather old game (Mass Effect 1, for what it's worth), the laptop gets hot (to very hot) exactly in the much needed WASD keyboard area, thus rendering the game nearly unplayable.Now, I fully understand that this is nowhere near a gaming laptop, but we're talking about a 10+ year old game! Not only that, but I've played the same game before, on a significantly lower configuration, with nearly no issues at all. Actually, I've played many games, on laptops with weaker processors and integrated graphics, and I haven't experienced this much heat.So... has anyone encountered this issue with a similar laptop? And, if so, can anything be done about it? I find it really frustrating that I can't even play such an old game in decent conditions, not to mention disappointing...Thank ... Read more

Hello, I bought my ideapad 520s 14IKB on 25/08/2017, and, today I just checked my battery status in Lenovo Settings, and the total capacity of the battery is now 47,58Wh and the design capacity is 52,5Wh, that means that in 3 weeks the battery is now in 90% of it's capacity... Is this normal? At this rate soon enough my battery will be dead. Thanks in advance.

Hi everybody, I have issue with new 520S-14IKB. I bought it 5 days ago.Installed Windows 10 and updated to latest version. Installed all drivers from Lenovo support site. Laptop freezes randomly few times a day. I can't get patternt, because it sometimes crashes while watch youtube, sometimes when swithcing windows, sometimes just by using some text editor. It just stucks, I can't click anywhere, cant switch windows with alt+tab, can't open task manager. I can move mouse and that is it.No any message, no "not responding" message.When I put it on sleep by pressing power button, and turn it on again it runs normally, as nothing happened.It is becoming really anoying because I can't find out what causes the problem. I tried everything I could find on web, also installing intel graphic driver from Intel site manually, turning off Link state power management for PCI express which I found on internet as solutions for windows 10 crashing. I am getting really desperate about this and thinking about returning laptop to my seller back. Can anybody help please?Thanks in advance.Kind regards

Hi!I want to do a fresh Windows 10 install. I perfectly know how do it and i think im not forgetting anything. It never hapenned before but the "Boot Mode" option is grey, i can't select it. I need to change it to CMS or Legacy so the bios can detect my usb. Both usb ports and the pen drive is working fine, there's nothing wrong. Bios is just not detecting my usb.... I disabled the fast and secure boot, doesn't work. In fact, everytime i reboot my computer, the secure boot aut. changes from disabled to enabled...Some people say to change the OS Optimazed Defaults option but it doesn't work either. My bios is uptaded. I tried to download an older bios version but lenovo only has this updated version in their website. Any help please ?Thanks in advance

Hi, I am wondering if the recently upgraded Ideapad 520s-14IKBR (Intel core i5-8250u, 8GB DDR4, 128gb m.2 ssd, intel UHD graphics 620) has thunderbolt on the USB-C port? As far as I could find the previous versions don't have thunderbolt, only the 720s models. I hope they improved this new version with a thunderbolt connection. I also want to upgrade the native m.2 SSD for a Samsung 960 EVO so I can enable hardware encryption on it.Does anybody know which SSD is used in this model and does it already support SSD hardware encryption (TCG Opal) like the samsung does?Does this motherboard support a PCIe 3.0x4 NVMe SSD like the Samsung 960 EVO? Here are some specs: https://us.hardware.info/product/413163/lenovo-ideapad-520s-14ikbr-81bl005ymh/specifications I can't find any further info (or user manual) on this model and I can't even find the model on the Lenovo website except for the older models like 520s-IKB.  Hope someone can help me out. Thank you!

Hello everyone, I've been having a very weird problem recently, in which I BELIEVE is involving high physical memory usage. Sometimes I will be doing things such as playing a game, or watching a stream, and my computer will run fine for a little while. But at random times, my computer will majorly slow down and sometimes even crash. If it doesn't crash, sometimes it will get so slow to the point where I have to hold down the power button and manually shut it down. Every time my computer slows down I notice it is using a TON of physical memory. It's actually happening right now. My computer is going very slow and it's using 6.22 GB memory out of 8. There are no big programs running right now, so I don't understand why it's being slow. I hope someone is able to help. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Update: I just tried to open chrome, and the computer froze completely. It would not unfreeze. After leaving it frozen for a minute or two, the screen went black. This is becoming very frustrating.

A:Very high physical memory usage, no high usage programs running

Post a screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab when the problem occurs.

Hi all, Would love some help here.The fingerprint sensor suddenly, like literally suddenly stopped working all of a sudden. It was working maybe give and take about an hour before. I went into account settings under sign-in option to find that WINDOWS HELLO is not available for my device?! Then i went crazy all over the web trying to find a solution but to no avail. I have tried all kinds of method the web can find for me like:1) starting the cmd prompt and doing a system scan and health restore something like that which says the system is fine2)enabling the fingerprint driver in group policy3)updating the driver did not solve it4)reinstalling the driver does not help at all5)updating the laptop6)going into BIOS but could not find the driver anywhere7)renabling the driver there was no previous updates to the driver at all, it just stopped working and therefore i cannot do a rollback of the update to a previous version. o and after doing all these, i still cannot get it to work. Is there something wrong probably with the hardware?I just got the laptop about a month or so, hope this is just temporary as i quite like how this laptop is functioning for me now and would love the fingerprint function to be back. Sincerely,A lost carpex
