Windows 7 lags after a while

  1. Hi,
    I own a Medion Akoya E6221, a windows 7 64bit laptop with 4gb of ram and a dual core intel core i5 processor. For a long period now, on and off I have had the problem of when my computer has been used for a period (varying from almost no time to a few hours or days!) the typing and navigation seems to lag as if the computer is under huge strain. However, this happens even when only chrome or one Word window is opened.

    The way to 'fix' the problem is a restart and that that works well until the problem reoccurs, either as an annoying delay to typing or in such a severe form as to leave my laptop virtually inoperable. To try and sort the issue I've tried disabling various programs, reinstalling Windows 7 and running an array of Memtest tests on the ram (which came up clean).

    Other than this problem the laptop is pretty fast and I can't seem to see anything too weird in the process dialogues when the problem is occurring.

    Can anyone think of what may be causing this?

    Thanks,
    George
