PC slow out of nowhere

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I just bought a new PC 2 weeks ago. Yesterday I was playing a game when all of a sudden it started lagging a LOT. I thought it was just the game, so I closed it down. But everything was slow, even my cursor on the start screen. First I looked at temps and none of them were even close to being dangerously hot. I then decided to just shut off the PC, which took atleast 2 minutes in itself because it was reacting so slowly. Booted it again after 5 minutes, the same thing.. Everything was extremely slow, so I ended up shutting it down once again and going to bed. Now next day everything is normal, no lags, no nothing. I kinda want to know what the problem was, because if it's something serious then I need to RMA the PC. If you need anymore information, feel free to ask and I'll try my best to answer it.

Did you look at the temps while stress testing? The temps can go down quickly if you stop gaming.

Yeah, temps are completely fine. I have hardware monitor open while gaming, it shows max temp and it's 68-70c.

Was there maybe a windows update? Also can you reproduce the error?

I updated windows 3-4 days ago, I can't reproduce the error sadly. I really have no clue why it did it.

did you fill the SSD to its max capacity? SSD tends to slowdown when full.

No, I'm only using about 50%.

the only time that kind of slowdowns happen to me (happened to my old CPU)

 

-my cpu for some reason is on 100% and is getting overwhelmed by something i dont know

-there is a background app that is causing the PC to go at 100%

-Viruses

-Unstable overclocks

-Memory issues

 

my guess is there is a background app or something that is causing it to slow down. check carefully when it slows down again. if your process is really high even when nothing is open, that might be it.

Alright, thanks I'll look out for that. Hopefully it's not a virus, I did scan immediately today when I booted it just in case and nothing was found.

Update: My little brother bought the exact same PC as I did at the same time too. Now he's the one getting lags, we updated windows 10 the same day (4-5 days ago). So it really makes me think it has something to do with windows. But then it doesn't make sense why it worked to let it sit overnight. Because if you just do a simple restart it still lags when it boots. Shutting it off for 30 minutes and it still lags. I checked the task manager when it happend for him and cpu is at 0-1%, memory is at 18%. Should we get an earlier version of windows?

What about disk usage ? Some programs/processes could use only a fraction of cpu/memory available but have massive disk usage.

That's at 0% too, nothing was out of the ordinary as far as I know.

Update: It happened again, I installed an older version of windows 10 but that didn't work. Now i'm worried it has something to do with the 'hardware'.
