    Hi there.

    So, my Toshiba Satellite S50B, in an instant, suddenly became so very slow.

    Here's what happened: I removed the battery and then replaced it. I mean, shortly afterwards I put it into hibernate, but that wouldn't cause all of this, would it?

    I tried:

    "powercfg -h off" in cmd
    Registry edit for "Processor performance core parking min cores" and fiddled with that
    Played with minimum and maximum processor states
    Thinks the BIOS is configured correctly. There isn't much to configure, honestly. There is a turbo* feature which is enabled. No C1E or SpeedStep
    Played with ThrottleStop (though maybe incorrectly)
    Tried clean boot. Issue persists when everything is disabled or stopped
    Scanned for malware using Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, ADWCleaner, HitmanPro
    Had to system restore (rstrui) in safe mode because it wouldn't in normal mode. Sadly, no change
    Updated battery and network adapters

    Additionally, I was experiencing Windows Update issues in the midst of all this. Lots of being stuck in the "Getting Windows Ready" screen. The dealing with the "Updates couln't be completed" screen. I followed this troubleshooter: Manual reset of windows update components. The update progress bar seems to consistently break even after this and multiple restarts.

    Oh, and there was an internet router restart in there, including "ipconfig /flushdns" (but that's apparently not even related, as I'm writing this post).

    So, I'm like 14 hours total (or something) into trying to resolve this for myself, with all the frozen system update screens included. There seems to be two separate issues, or maybe they're connected. It's the "throttling" that's been driving me up the wall though. (I don't know if that's the correct terminology.) The CPU doesn't "work," the fan never has to "try," programs-- heck, even windows explorer is laggy when scrolling through file folders. It's ridiculous!

    The next step is to try the bootable Kaspersky Rescue USB, but I'm pretty convinced the culprit isn't from infection. The fact I had to system restore in safe mode has me most concerned, you know? Like I've never had to do that before, yet it kept failing.

    Anyways, I appreciate any help you all might be able to give me. I'm no computer expert, and I try to cover all the bases before requesting help, so I've definitely missed something in this puzzle.

    Thanks for reading--

    It's a Toshiba S50B, i7-4510U, Intel integrated w/ R7 M260 GPU. She's an old girl, but the power button still works.

    :)

    PC Sluggish After Waking From Sleep

    Thank you for the update.

    "Could it be that their drivers are not compatible with my current Windows build?" - Yes, there's a possibility that's why you're experiencing some performance issue.

    Another thing, some users have reported that the possible reason why their computers are sluggish is fast startup (enabled by default). We may try disabling the fast startup, then check if the issue will still occur. To do so, please follow the steps below:

    • Open Power Options.
    • Click Choose what the power buttons do.
    • Under Shutdown settings, uncheck Turn on fast startup (recommended).
    • Click Save changes.

    And we also suggest checking the Processes and Performance in Task Manager if you feel your computer is sluggish.

    We would appreciate an update about how it went.
