Unhappy Solved: Demonic noises accompanied by lag
This was seen in a previous computer which was not usable anymore due to unknown reasons and also extreme lag.

I've had this laptop for about a month now and I have used 59.8 GB (I downloaded a few large games and art programs) I scanned my computer every day with McAfee and never found anything wrong.
This happens more frequently when I switch around with programs quickly. If there is audio playing, it turns garbled. This is accompanied with a visual lag for a few moments and doesn't effect anything else as far as I know. Also happened a few times when I had no programs open except for Windows Media Player. (It's a very demonic noise that turns the most cheerful music dark. It started for the first time while I was watching a video that had to do with the anti-Christ)
I want to find the source of this problem and fix it before my new laptop ends up like the old one, please and thank you so much for your time.

I'll add something that I recently found: The lag is always there. Even when there is no audio or video, there's the occasional lag with mouse and programs. It also happens when playing video games. I called Lenovo tech support, and they told me to update the graphics drivers. So we did, and it went for a day and then came back. It is getting very irritating.

It's a brand new high-powered laptop. There should be no lag with web surfing and video watching. Contact Lenovo or wherever you bought it and get it replaced under warranty.

ok. it's been significantly slower ever since I received it and the tech support man said that if the driver update didn't fix it, it's a hardware defect. The only possible thing I can do is send it in to get it replaced. You finalized my decision XD I have no problem with this, as long as it comes back before I leave for the summer.
