laptop's performance degrades until i shut down, pull out battery and replace...how can I fix this
Posted on 2012-03-28
I have a laptop that starts to degrade in performance within 5 minutes of booting. windows intermittently freezes up (for a second or two), web pages dont load completely, when I telnet there is a long lag time and often ends in the telnet connection being terminated.
When i shut down the computer, take the battery out for a few minutes, and replace the battery, everything works as supposed to. However, again within 5 minutes, these issues return. I first tried reformatting the laptop, which seemed to be a temporary fix. I tried buying a new battery but the issue still continues.
Is there anyway to permanently fix this?
