  1. Sudden Decrease in Performance?


    Ok, first off, I upgraded to the insider preview a long time ago from Win7 Ulti. I can't recall exactly when, but it was sometime between November and January. When I was still on 7, I was having some intermittent issues, and was thinking about wiping, but then I just upgraded.

    Since then, things have been awesome. (With the exception of the issue with full-screen DX9 apps since 10130 or somesuch. Can't wait for them to fix that.) However, just recently I started having a really odd performance issue. I notice it mostly when I'm opening a browser or Steam. Well, I take that back. The PC will sometimes take a few minutes longer to start up than normal. I forget that one though because I hardly ever turn the PC off or reboot it.

    I have monitored the system when I'm seeing this huge delay, but cannot for the life of me narrow down the cause. CPU is between 3 and 8%. RAM is around 22%, and nothing seems to be hung or clocking. Yet it's taking 3-5 times longer for the application to open up. As if the CPU was busy doing a bunch of other tasks, or the RAM is full and dumping, but neither is the case.

    I'm currently running the standard build and turned off the insider updates. My CPU is an i7-3930, 16GB RAM, and a GTX660Ti GPU. I can upload a Speccy if that would help. I'm leaning towards doing a wipe, but really would like to avoid that if at all possible. I hate spending a week restoring everything and then realizing I missed something in the export.

    :)

    N8 Sudden Decrease In Battery Life

    After three additional Belle refreshes, power consumption is back to the way it was prior to initial refresh; medium usage, 2 days+ between charges.

  3. N8 Sudden Decrease In Battery Life

    Just to say that my N8 battery never lasted more than a day from whence I bought it. I have just gone upto belle and I'm now getting just over a day. I suspect a lot of these standby variations must be down to the batteries themselves or a change in the
    charging cycle.

  5. Those were the first steps I took, but I don't recall offhand if I ran the TFC. I'll have to give that a shot when I get home.

    In addition you might want to run: chkdsk /r C:
    and also from admin command prompt:
    • Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    • dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    • sfc /scannow

    When it happens, bring up task manager and check your disk IO. I've noticed that win 10 loves to peg it a 100% after sign-in for 60 secs or so. So I set steam to not start on signin. I wait for the disk to IO to stop.

    Others have suggested that some 3rd party anti-virus cause problems. If you upgraded and left it on, try removing it.

    Sudden Decrease in Performance?

    Having the same issue recently. Upon boot up, the system goes to black screen for about 30 seconds before opening up to desktop. I think it's because of Steam. It's like an OS within an OS or something.

  9. SFC didn't find anything wrong, but running an integrity check on the drive from Partition Manager did show that it was "dirty" and it repaired the file system errors. I also additionally defragged the MFT. After performing all 6 steps, my PC is back to how it was running previously.

    Thanks guys!
