Computer suddenly turning slow
I could not find the model list for my laptop, but I have an Asus k501U
- Intel core i7 6500U
- 8GB RAM
- 1TB HDD + 128G SSD
- Intel Integrated graphics + Geforce FTX 950M
I was playing league during the night in a hot room, so my laptop has reached a pretty high temperature. However, my game was smooth and laptop was still running smoothly. After I shut it down for the night and boot it up the next morning, the entire laptop turns extremely slow and freezing. Anything I try to open will take minimum 10 minutes and become unresponsive. I downloaded Throttlestop and noticed I have the "thermal" limit under CPU and GPU and ProcHot was activated. I unchecked the Prochot box and cleaned my laptop's fan, but that hasn't made anything faster. I have also ran multiple Malwarebytes and found nothing and did a CCleaner, but still the same result.
Please help, how does my laptop suddenly turn permanently slow like this and how do I go back to its original speed. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
