    Expensive Laptop Lagging and Very Slow


    Hello :)

    With my new laptop, I sadly have problems with the mouse cursor being laggy in some situations. And it works very slow in some situations as well.

    The effect is that if I move the mouse pointer around it will suddenly stop ever approx. 5-8 seconds. Reason is unknown.

    The situation is my computer (this happens at random time) randomly starts lagging. It doesn't completely freeze but It'll load extremely slow and remain in that state. The only thing you can do at this point is restart the computer because it's super slow. It's quite hard to even pull up the shut down option because due to the immense lag.

    Below what i have done so far in search for solution by knowledge i get form this great forums:

    I have ran the following commands and results is posted here as well.
    sfc /scannow
    dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    sfc /scannow
    chkdsk /scan

    And i have ran Tuneup.bat file , results are attached here.

    exported computer information from msinfo32.exe attached can be found here.

    Ran Microsoft Defender Offline results can be found here

    Hi,

    History: (Almost never given by posters)
    - have you had this problem ever since you first had the laptop?
    - when did this start?
    - what happened or what did you do just before this started?

    For example- I installed program x or I received an update and then....

    Please create a new user for test purposes. Log in as that user and advise if the same thing happens.
    If it does, return to the original user account and perform a clean boot. (Google or see tutorial if unsure how).
    Does the same thing happen?

    What sort of mouse are you using, and how is it connected?
    Does the same thing happen if you use the touchpad?

    You appear to have quite frequent fault reports (programs crashing). Could you comment on that please? Anything known?

    Thanks.

    First of all , thank you very much for reply.

    History: (Almost never given by posters)
    - have you had this problem ever since you first had the laptop?
    - when did this start?
    - what happened or what did you do just before this started?
    - it does not have before
    - it sarted like 2 months ago
    - actually i dont know what caused this , because i was like whenever it happen i just restart it and keep using it and forget about it.But its getting worse and worse.

    For example- I installed program x or I received an update and then....
    there is no such thing which i can track of it.

    What sort of mouse are you using, and how is it connected?
    Does the same thing happen if you use the touchpad?
    I am using thinkpad mouse its bluetooth, yes it does happen with trackpad as well.
    ONE thing i would like to mention its not only the mouse which is lagging , the system get slower as well.

    You appear to have quite frequent fault reports (programs crashing). Could you comment on that please? Anything known?
    Can you please tell me which programs it is ? i am not very professional with Troubleshoting with Windows , so if you can guide me which programs is crashing and on which report you can see that so i will learn and same time try to figure it out if needed uninstall of those programs.

    Regards
    Bobby

    Thanks. One of the reports you posted listed a number of WER reports for a range of programs.

    Please log in as normal. Open only the task manager.

    About 3 minutes after logging in, post a screenshot of your task manager, Processes tab - thus:

    Could you please try these that I suggested?

    yes i did , but the issue i am facing is so random that sometimes it does not appear (no matter normal user or new new user) , so i did login with new user and waited like 10 mins doing browsing , watching video's etc

    That one- just open it and search for WER for example.

    Good- your task manager shows no exceptional resource usage that might be related to slow performance.

    Erratic problems are hard to deal with.
    I suggest you try to capture screenshots of your task manager next time it happens.

    Looks like symptoms of drive failure. Please back up and prepare to replace the drive.

    Well, before that, establish the facts.

    Ok, get a copy of Hard Disk Sentinel and run that. Excellent, applies to SSDs too.

    But advice on backing up is always applicable.
    You usually can't usefully image a failing drive.

    i have attached report from Hard Disk Sentinel Text Report here & Screenshot here

    as far as my limited knowledge i think reports suggest HDD are good , but need expert opinion on it.

    For backing up drive as whole image , which software is best and your recomendation?|


    Awaiting for you reply .

    Thanks - all you need from HDS is its GUI:
    Expensive Laptop Lagging and Very Slow-1.jpg

    Screeenshots are most helpfully posted using forum features thus:

    There's a tutorial if needed.


    As you say, I wouldn't have expected this to be drive failure, but as
    RJARRRPCGP said: Looks like symptoms of drive failure
    - best to simply eliminate that.

    I've suggested
    you try to capture screenshots of your task manager next time it happens.
    Also after that period of lag, check your Reliabilty History and explore any red x's around that time.

    Could be some task suddenly triggers a burst of activity...

    If you wish, you can also run some stress tests (Google), and also try
    Enable and Disable Driver Verifier in Windows 10

    As for backups, tenforums members endlessly and repetitively recommend the routine and regular use of disk imaging (Google that to find out what it is).

    This means you both have a full backup of potentially several different dates and can restore your full working environment and O/S even if you need to replace your disk(s).

    Tools: program e.g. Macrium Reflect (free/paid) is reckoned best in class + large enough external disk (1-2Tb say) for image files,
    Store that disk separately and securely and you're safe even if your PC is stolen.

    Then for fast moving key data use some form of scheduled or synchronised backup e.g. O&O Autobackup (not free) but less intrusive with notifications: Aomei Backupper (free/paid - free includes incremental imaging and file backup)
