    Personal:
    I have some experience with computers, not to say i know nearly anything.
    I have taken a few ROP computer service and networking courses, which
    help with understanding the basics. I have had this computer for under a year.

    :mad: Problems:

    - Inconsistent Mouse lag, delay of 2-15 seconds on a click
    - Programs lag inconsistently
    - Problem with certain movies, and games, mostly certain will not run smoothly.

    Current Status:

    - Drivers are Updated
    - Device manager shows no errors
    - No anti-virus (could use some suggestions on some freeware that will work...)

    Conclusion:

    These problems may be hardware related but i have had no physical damage on this laptop.
    Now if it is a software issue i would love some help, even a link or an article i should read. I
    would love to have this laptop running at its peak seeing as its expensive and pretty new.
    I really need it to work smoothly for school right now, i depend on this laptop for a majority
    of art and design projects.I have used this site before and you are all extremely helpful. Not
    to be emotional but volunteer service like this helps thousands, Thank you :)

    We recommend Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast on this site. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl...s.aspx?id=5201 or http://www.avast.com/en-us/index both are free. ONLY USE ONE Anti-Virus program, having more than one will cause problems!

    In conjunction with either of them use both of the following and run them at least once a week.
    Malwarebytes
    http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-download.php
    Superantispyware
    http://www.superantispyware.com/down...NTISPYWAREFREE

    Make sure to update their definition files during the install process.
    Make sure to uncheck and decline to install any extras, such as toolbars and homepages, they may offer.
    Make sure to uncheck or decline to use the "Pro" or "Trial" version, if it's offered.
    After they're installed and updated, restart the computer.
    Run a quick scan with each one.
    After each quick scan is finished, select and remove EVERYTHING that was found.

    To help us help you,please use the TSG System Info tool to let Tech's know the specs of your computer: http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe Copy and paste the results here in your thread. You can then update your Computer Specs with this info.
    Also, if its a brand name system like an Acer,Dell or HP, please post the exact model of the system.

    This will get you up to date with your spec's:)
