    What could cause..."schlepping computer"?

    Heat throttling due to dust blanket inside - clean inside of computer (see Youtube videos)

    Heat throttling due to hardened thermal paste on CPU or GPU or southbridge - clean & replace (see Youtube for videos on this)

    Virus / trojan / rootkit - run several scans and if any 'surprises', pursue in Virus Removal topic in next forum

    Failing PSU - check voltage and temps against norms +/-3% or so on 12v and 5v rails using HWInfo (hwinfo.com)

    Failing HDD - check SMART, run cleanup/defrag, replace

    Drivers: need updated drivers to make your system work well with Win8 (hope its 8.1) - check motherboard manufacturer's site

    You can post about your progress through the list and there might be more helpful ideas
