Asus Sluggish F555Y Laptop Narre Warren North
Workshop Job – Slow/Unresponsive dropped off for service
Customer brought in a sluggish, unresponsive Asus F555Y laptop. She said she was ready to chuck the laptop out through the window. It was taking up to 15 min to boot-up, then it was pretty much unresponsive and hardly usable.
To determine the source of sluggishness of the Asus laptop (software or hardware) we perform a number of checks and/or diagnostics as may be required.
Task manager shows CPU and HDD usage stuck on 100%.
Startup items – Nothing unusual. Network settings OK.
Installed programs – Some driverwhiz spotted, removed. Restart, check task manager, CPU/HDD still stuck at 100%.
Check for malwares, spywares, adwares, pups – a bunch detected and removed. Cleanup remnants and registry entries. Restart, check CPU/HDD – still stuck on 100%.
Check and optimise Chrome settings, restart, check CPU/HDD – still stuck at 100%.
HDD test – OK.
RAM test – Ok, though only 4GB installed, more should help. But it did not after adding extra 4GB.
The diagnostics and investigations results are indicative of some deep OS corruption which could take significant time to troubleshoot.
The client has all the necessary product keys for re-installation.
Therefore a more efficient path would be to simply backup all valuable data, do a clean install, then return the data as well as reconfigure settings as necessary.
All items in task manager now running within normal range.
Laptop is snappy and responsive as expected.
Remove all covers and perform internal dust and fluff cleanup with brush and compressed air. Should improve cooling and stability.
Using rubbing alcohol + microfibre cloth, cleanup screen, keyboard and external covers.
