Okay, so I've got this split x2, that as of a week ago its struggling, it locks up for about .5 seconds and may for it again, and again... the processor could go from like 0% to 10, 15, 20, maybe more. If a sound is playing/video or something else it will take that single second of audio and it sounds like its running in sloooww moooo then clears up. Sometimes i boot it up, maybe 20% of the time and it runs fine. No issues at all. Things that i have done.

*reloaded the Operating system from multiple mediums and sources.
*ran a pass on memtest 86
*intel cpu diagnostic test
*seagate hd test
*on board bios (hp) diagnostic test
*no real event logs lead me anywhere, the only one i get is "processor is being limited by firmware for xx seconds"
*installed ubuntu, problem persisted, which leads me to believe that it isnt software.
*disabled audio, bt, usb items, wifi ect from device manager, no change.
*detached keyboard from the screen issue still persisted.
*also installed windows with no internet to make sure no updates were causing issues. It ran on windows 10 since release without issue
*ran ubuntu off of the flash drive, ran perfect, no video or audio lag.

I have the core i3 model

Is it possible that the hd is failing, i think its an msata ssd, fo they read differently on hd tests than mechanical. If its shot so be it, I want closure as to the where the failure is. Otherwise wise I'll fix it.

Reaching out to other folks for maybe a new angle. Sorry if this isnt in the best forum location, but its a generic help style issue.
