This is a I7 Quad core (1.73ghz) laptop with 4 Gigs of ram, a dedicated Nvidia GT 425M video card and a newly installed Crucial M4 SSD drive (256gb).
Prior to the installation of the new drive, the laptop would constantly run hot and bog down as if it were running full blast even while running the most basic of applications. Just recently I've installed the SSD drive thinking that maybe the drive that came with the laptop was nearing the end of its service life. However the system still bogs down and runs hot without any indication of what the cause maybe.
So far I've attempted the following:
-Windows system file checker
-Microsoft Security Essentials (complete scan)
-Malwarebytes (complete scan)
-Advanced System Care (complete scan)
-Avast (complete scan)
-Windows "Fix It" tool
-Removed all software that I didn't need
Just reinstalled windows 7 and still having issues.... Anyone know whats going on ?
Download GPU-Z, or HWInfo, to see what the temps are on your card. Usually if you've reinstalled Windows and the issue remains its something deeper in the system. Almost sounds like you may have something spiking out of control (Hardware wise) and stopping the system.
