Windows 7: Laptop became extremely slow, suspected overheat

14 Apr 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit SP1
Laptop became extremely slow, suspected overheat

1st Day
My laptop was playing Dota 2 that afternoon and it suddenly have lag spikes but the ping was normal and sometimes it would freeze. After I exit the game it suddenly became so slow until it takes merely ~15 minutes just to shutdown.

2nd Day
I tried to boot the laptop but it was so slow and it froze a lot and it took 20 minutes to boot. I restart the laptop multiple times to see if there were some changes and nothing worked so I did a reinstall of Windows and turns out the installation itself was running so slow.
I waited like 2-3 hours for the installation itself to finish. And it's the same old sluggish laptop.

My suspection was a CPU overheat caused by the long use of the laptop itself.

Any suggestion would be great

Hello Alfrel sorry you have been left for some time now can you run Speccy while or shortly after running a game to let us know the temps mate

Now there are a few other things that will slow down the machine but lets have a look at the temps first and just what is the model number of the machine please.
