Check Resource Monitor. To do this, open up Task Manager (right click on the TaskBar)
Then click on the Performance tab, then click on the Resource Monitor button (I'm pretty sure that this is the way to it - but it's different on my system as I'm using Win8)

If you can't figure out what the issue is, please post screen shots of the Resource Monitor screen>
