  1. did you install any software lately that user video hardware acceleration or amd app acc feature?
    also check the task manager to see what background processes are using the maximum resources.try ending those processes one by one to see if any change occurs after terminating any process.
  2. Thank you it was a faulty svchost.exe that was the problem, I thought it was something physically wrong with my computer
  3. good...all the best.
