Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del & open the task manager. Look in the "processes" tab & check under the CPU column to see what process is maxing your CPU usage. Then do a search online about the process you found - Or post here with your findings.

Make a snapshot:
WIN | type SNIPPING | ENTER
Click the New button.
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save button


Use the Paperclip on that icon row of a msg/reply.
There's a tutorial here on how to do it. Let' see if i can find it.

UPDATE YOUR SEVENFORUMS SYSTEM SPECS


User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
in left-hand column, under Your Profile, Edit System Spec |


Use Speccy - System Information - Free Download
and/or SIW to gather info for filling in the blanks.

Do me a favor and add the word laptop or desktop to the “system manufacturer” block.

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.
