it lags and drags.
i am not a gamer and run nothing extra hard.
windows 7 office 2010 (outlook and word) ie8 and mozzilla 3.6 the only thing unusual is a magic jack phone. molorola wireless modem attached to 5 million per second cable service. hardwire directly into the machine.
symptoms: if i steam a radio show it stops, can not keep up even though buffered.
i can have a page of online mail on the screen and looking at it totally loaded. i can try to click a checkbox to delete a unwanted email and it starts the little blue circle like it is loading and the screen goes to a half white like there is something over the screen. it will eventually turn back to clear and allow me to click the check box.
i can be doing a survey that has radio buttons to click a choice of answers and go to click one and it goes to the little blue circle and the half white screen.
sometimes you can click the little "x" to close a tab or window and you can sit counting off seconds before it closes. the longest ever i counted to 23 before the window closed.
now, i have cerebral palsy and type with one finger and sometimes a thumb for capitals on my one relatively good hand. i can be typing in word or outlook or on a screen in online mail in a browser. i can look up at the screen and it will be stopped at mybe half my sentance and i have to wait until it puts the rest on the screen. i find it inconceivable that a 6 core 8 gig machine can not put words on the screen faster than i can type.
what has been tried. cable moden changed by cable company and they say all is well with the cable. this was all tec h support at ZT Systems could sugeast. ZT S ystes did take it back and replaced the hard drive in a attempt to help. it did not help
what is the possible causes for this. the old 6 year old machine was better had the heat sinc not went bad.
