Last morning my case side panel was left opened without my conscent and I'm experiencing some serious lag issues ever since. Windows start up times are slower and even mouse right click & refresh button is lagging. I tried all defragging programs and other tweaking utilities like TuneUpUtilities etc I think some plug inside my cabinet got loose. Please help

  1. So someone got into your case without your consent and now you are lagging?

    Is everything still in there? run CPU-z and see if your i5-2500k is still there. Maybe someone swapped it out for their G440. LoL
  2. +1 check everything is still there, a slow hdd would cause this, less ram would cause it, a loose cpu fan might cause it.
  3. I'm curious, do you have some sneaky roommates or something?
  4. If you have an "evil roommate", maybe he/she replaced your CPU with a slower CPU.

    Otherwise try CCleaner to clean out dead Windows registry keys and defrag your hard drives.
  5. cpu theif!? This is a new one!
  6. I checked the BIOS but my cpu and other hardware are still the same. But I'm still experiencing the serious lag issue. Infact when I run CPU-Z, it gets hanged up and gives the "Error code 0x102 (258)" message. I googled this error and found that this means a "deadlock" . Btw I reinstalled the latest version of CPU-Z and still getting the same error. I think it is related with the lag issue. All applications are taking more time to load. Please help!

    Have you booted into bios to check temps and make sure all of the multipliers are all the same? ;o
  8. there's no extra hardware in the case now is there?
  9. chances are who ever opend the case has been browsing the net for porn and go you a nice little ITD (Internet transmitted disease) as he probably dint put a bag on yer windows b4 he dived in.

    run decent antivirus and anti malware. avira and malware bytes are likely to find something so start with them.
