Lately my computer has been running really slowly, all programs have been "Not Responding" every few minutes, and it takes forever for it to go back to normal. At least five times a day I get the BSOD, saying something like kernel inpage. It does a memory dump then restarts. After the restart, it tries to run the chkdsk and doesn't let me cancel it, or run the chkdsk until I cut off the laptop and restart it a couple of times. Then when I finally log on to my system, it will pop up with a blank black screen as the background and a huge taskbar that isn't loaded. When I restart again, the system is finally up and working as "usual." I'm not sure what the problem is, as I can't run any program successfully. It always ends in a BSOD before the scan completes, or "not responds" for longer than thirty minutes, often causing windows itself to "not respond".
I have an HP Pavilion dv4 I believe.
Windows 7 Home Premium.
4 GB of RAM.
ATI Radeon Mobility 4200 graphics.
AMD Athlon II Dual-Core M320 2.09 GHz.
I thought the slowness issue just had to do with playing Assassin's Creed II, as the game was taking forever to start up and Ubisoft was having a server issue, which slowed down the game running, but the issue still remained after the servers were back up, so obviously it's a problem with my computer. Please help me to resolve this problem, as my life is on my laptop and I have homework to be doing!
