Windows 7: Still got problems

Still got problems

I've made quite a few topics but I never get many replies and they all just die out.

Anyway, My computer is acting VERY strange. It started out by just getting kinda slow, but got worse and worse. Now when I try and do the most basic task all my screens turn white for 30 seconds or so, then go back to windows and windows explorer isn't responded. I let it sit for a few more seconds then it finally does what I want it to.

I've run Virus scanners, CCleaner, Defraggelr, ChkDsk, Sfc Scannow, all that stuff and this computer just keeps getting worse and worse.

I've got an i7 but no cores are ever above 10%, or even 5%. The only time they are is when playing a Java game and the first core maxes out.

This is starting to get incredibly frustrating as you probably can image and I really hope to finally a solution this time.

Here are some previous issue topics (none have been resolved 100%)
SFC Scannow - 'Cannot repair member file'
Slow after sleep mode

This is my only fixed issue, which was a huge one with ATI and my PSU.

Could any of this be a sign of hard drive or video card failure?

Pull up the task manager use the processes task.
It sounds like something is eating up all the cpu time.

I would run HDD Diags
As well as Memory Diags

2. Does your system have on-board video?
Remove your video card and try that for a bit,, or try a different video card,, could be bad

3. Have Power Supply Tested that it is actually good.

Check all power connections on Motherboard and look at them closely for damage or corrosion or scortches.

Some other stuff that could be checked, that may or may not be of concern,, check all external cables are seated properly and remove all non-essential ones for a while.
Check that the monitor itself is not bad,, this can be difficult unfortunately.

If I had my hands on it, I would run PCDoctor or UltraX full system diags.

I would be hard pressed to call this a software/driver issue,, don't rule it out, but........

If you have another hard drive for installing Windows on as a test. I would recommend doing that first.

Check that all fans and heat sinks are working and seated properly.

Check Temps.

To me this says at least 4 things,,, Bad Hardware (1 or more of these - PSU, HDD, RAM, Video, Mobo) , Heat, faulty drivers, corrupted windows install. Int hat order of importance.


P.S. Try disconnecting 2 monitors....

Have you tried a repair install? If you have Windows 7 SP1 installed already, you'll need to slipstream the service pack into your install disc, and burn a new DVD.

Huh nearly 20% of the cpu in use and nothing on the screen accounts for it.

If something is quarantined in MSE, can it affect your computer in anyway?

It should not,, no. But then again, we are talking about Viruses.


Can you do another screen shot of Task Manager, but sort by CPU and make your task manager bigger to see everything, and show all process for all users?

I'm running MSE right now because I saw 3 trojans in my quarantine and removed them (absolutely no idea how those got there).

Can multiple monitors really be slowing my system down?
