NEW LAPTOP NOT PERFORMING WELL

LAPTOP SPECS:

MSI GV62 7RD-2640PH
INTEL CORE i7 7700HQ
RAM - 4GB DDR4
1TB HDD
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050

 

I bought my laptop 5 months ago and expecting it to have minimal lag since it has high GPU and CPU.But weeks of using it I found that my DISK and CPU are spiking to 80-100 and a lot of crashes of application occurred even Chrome is the only app that is running with 3 tabs will make my Laptop freeze and occur BSoD * I forgot the  codes but I remember some says VIDEO SCHEDULER*. It is too slow doing a basic task like opening File Manager, searching files from Windows and Opening apps. I was depressed knowing my friends that has lower specs laptop runs better than my laptop Any idea or Suggestions? It will be a big help.

 

PS.

Since I'm studying and don't have much money, what part should I upgrade 1st if the fix is upgrading.

 

Tweeks I made:

Update Drivers

Update Windows

Used Nvida gtx 1050 as main driver

Set the Battery to High Performance.

Run a virus scan. Viruses can often cause high CPU and disk usage, which will slow down the system.

Hey spotty, already done Deep scans and it actually helps. But the DISK still into it. :(

I wasn't able to say that my CPU is now on its stable condition, but I'm more concern on its performance.

If you're getting crashes, make sure you update all the drivers/bios from the manufacturer website.

 

As for performance you need more RAM (at least 8GB total), you also need an SSD as mechanical HDD is just to slow these days for an OS. Also the GPU is definitely not high end, it is low end (still ok for casual gaming though at 1080p). When gaming you should look to disable turbo boost as well to keep cooling better, the CPU is probably thermal throttling.

I was planning to buy additional 4GB ram and m.2 ssd where I can put my OS and use my 1TB to become my storage.

Those two will improve your laptop dramatically, 4GB is way to low and then when you run out of RAM it is having to store swap file on slow mechanical HDD.

Thanks for your recommendation @schwellmo92.

No viruses found then?...

Is the disk making any strange noises, such as clicking or grinding noises? Does it take a long time to browse files in windows explorer on the computer?
You can run a program known as CrystalDiskInfo to give you information on your hard drive and check the SMART health status of the drive. Because of the BSODs you've been experiencing, which in some cases can be caused by failing HDDs if the OS is installed on them, you should at least try to rule the HDD out as being the cause.

 @schwellmo92 is likely right here. You might be relying on the HDD for pagefile which is why your system is slow to respond and why your HDD is experiencing constant load. You should be able to view your RAM usage in task manager.

If it's the fully fledged GTX 1050 chip with 4GB Vram and not the low power mobile variant, then it will be alright for a 1080p laptop. There are better GPUs in laptops out there, but at least it isn't an iGPU :D

I actually heard a grinding noise but I didnt notice it. I only notice this sound when my Laptop is on and my room is quiet 1 week before the purchase, so I urgently went to their technician and let them hear the noise, they told me that "it was normal since it is working", but I insisted, because I know what running HDD sound like. Since it was I just Ignore it and think that it is the cause of the problem.

Bad drive, Very possible. Do a backup or copy of all important stuff, you don't want to lose

Ok then go --Start -- type->resource monitor--look at CPU -- to see what is using the resources

 

You may have a program running in the background. From the Laptop maker
