Hello 7forums. I have a problem with my Windows 7 Professional (32bit). I'll try to explain everything in detail.
Processor: Intel Core 2 DUO CPU T5800 @2.0 GHZ
Installed memory (RAM): 2.0 GB
System type: 32-bit operating system
Yesterday I was using uTorrent to download some files (24 gigabytes +). It was downloading at a speed of ~7-8 Mb/s. During the download I noticed that the PC was running pretty hard and I checked in the Task Manager for processor and RAM usage, noticing that the processor was used at around 50% of capacity but RAM memory was used at 1.9 GB, that's around 98%.
I restarted the laptop and run the download again. Memory usage was about 1.4 GB. Then, I tried to open Firefox and go check something on a website and everything crashed. I unplugged the laptop (n00b way of solving things) to shut it down and then started it back. At this point I noticed that it took like half an hour to boot and show desktop. Also, everything was running extremely slow.
I inserted my Windows 7 disc and ran through the `Repair Windows` wizard. I left it like that for about an hour and it was just telling me `Attempting Repairs`. I stopped it at that point and then re-installed Windows by formatting the partition.
Now, when I start the laptop it takes like 5-10 minutes until it shows me the desktop (before was 1 minute). Also I noticed that everything runs extremely slow. All the drivers
have been successfully installed (except for 2 USB ports).
If I keep my Windows Task Manager opened to performance & memory usage when I try to do stuff on the laptop, it shows me 0% CPU usage when the laptop has a `crash moment`. It simply crashes (stops doing anything) while CPU is 0-3% used and RAM memory around 700 Mb.
I attached a photo with one of this `crashes` where I wanted to visit a page and Firefox was just Not Responding while CPU was at 1% usage.
Also, after some time it just begins to work okay.
Any hints on this ? Help would be greatly appreciated.
