I've been having this problem for about a week and a half now, and have received help on here to rid my laptop of malware - so that's not the problem. Basically, the computer slows right down when I use it to the point of freezing: it doesn't matter if I'm on the internet, or browsing folders. Sometimes, it can be on 100% CPU usage - other times not.
Sometimes, if I wait for huge amounts of time it will run whatever I was trying to do - but I've found that if I turn the laptop upside down it runs perfectly instantly. At present, I'm resting one side on a dice to keep it elevated, and it runs perfectly like this as well.
If I turn on the computer, it will work normally for maybe 3-5 minutes, but then I'll have to use the dice technique or wafting it around. Is this likely to be something wrong with the inside of the comp? It seems slightly odd that something would come on so suddenly, and wafting it will help...?
Any help/info you can give me would be much appreciated.
