Computer lags after a days usage RRS feed

  • Question

  • After working with the computer all day, I seem to get a lag every 20 seconds but after I reboot, everything is fine.

    I define a lag by when I click on something, it takes a while to open. video freezes for a few seconds. Can you help?

  • In Windows 7 use Ctrl+Shift+Esc rather than Ctrl+Alt+Del. It gets you to Task
    Manager quicker. Select Task Manager, the Performance tab, Resource Monitor,
    and Memory tab. What are the figures for Hardware Reserved, In Use, Modified,
    Standby and Free?<o:p></o:p>

    Is your Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit? How much RAM is installed?<o:p></o:p>



    Hope this helps, Gerry
