Hello,

For the last few weeks my laptop has been running rather slow and makes gaming unbearable due to lag. While looking through my system trying to resolve the problem I opened AMD catalyst Engine Control Center and went into AMD System Monitor. Here it shows my GPU and CPU. My CPU is running fine, but my GPU is at 0% and highlighted red. Is that good or bad?

More about : gpu good
