I do not know what is causing this problem i took it to best buy they looked and used all their gadets and put everything back to the factory settings as well i redownloaded everything running it through my scaner so all i have is my bit defender my game and ts3 which has always been fine on my computers and it's still having issues im starting to think i have a faulty laptop and as for my memory it tops out at 32% i look at my task manger and in use is around 1300 almost always stand by is around 4000-6000MB and i have around 400-600MB free space
Did it always perform this way? Is there a chance it has been dropped or anything like that?
Regardless if you're using 5% memory or 50% , the sort of sluggishness you were describing shouldn't happen unless something is also taxing the hard drive or CPU or too many things are loading up at once.
Perhaps you have too many startup programs running?
Hit the start menu > type in msconfig > 1 program should come up > Click it > Click 'Start up' > Choose minimal, only essential applications.
After windows loads, you should be able to wait less time before you can start using it and opening more applications.
Otherwise, check and make sure your antivirus is in Game Mode if any.
If you like true speed and responsiveness, quick loading times, then again, an SSD would be a terrific investment.
