Programs are constantly "not responding" after startup

    Question

  • OK, here is my problem.

    My PC has recently become very slow, very slow indeed. Some programs on very low Frames per second, while most programs (and even windows explorer/start menu) Constantly 'not respond' Whenever I click on something (i.e the start button itself) It will not respond for 5-10 seconds, every mouse click - Not responding.

    Sometimes every application just locks up simultaneously causing me to shutdown my computer. At one stage my PC could not manage to start up, I tried various System repairs, system restores, Nothing worked.

    I was told by many It was a virus and it seemed as so, but no programs were picking anything up. I was clean. (still constantly locking up, after it decided to turn back on) I decided to reformat my PC, restoring it to factory default.

    2 hours setup. Still locking up and not responding. I'm clueless It can only be the PC itself can it? Its Only 10-12 months old non-damaged.

    May I note the fan is running pretty fast at some times, especially when it locks up. But the CPU is at 1%?

    Thanks in advance techies.

  • Since this forum is focused on the Windows 7 Operating System and not the hardware platform it is installed on it would be difficult to suggest solutions.  You would have better luck finding a hardware forum to discuss your problems.  Try the manufacturer's support website for your system or motherboard since most of them have user forums specifically for discussion of hardware related problems.

  • Sounds like your system is having hardware problems.  You need to have a computer repair technician run diagnostics on your system to look for hardware faults.  If you had the problem before and after doing a clean install of Windows 7 it is obvious Windows 7 is not the cause of the problem.

  • That's what I thought but I was wondering if there is anything I can do at home that may help the issue.
