So I have a Toshiba satellite with an i7 processor. It's under a year old and has been working fine until about a month ago. My problem is that no matter what I do with my laptop, whether gaming, browsing, even booting it up, there will be frequent slowdowns to the point where I can't even do anything.
These slowdowns last for roughly 10-15 seconds, but with a devilish frequency that makes using my laptop less than enjoyable at times. I've checked for viruses and malware and removed whatever I could find. Problem persists.
Not sure if it might be a heating problem perhaps. I'd like to know whether there is something I can do, and what exactly is causing my laptop to be like this. Is it permanent damage? Any help is greatly appreciated.
