    Hi guys

    I have resolved my ASUS issue. I will repurpose the ASUS for one of my kids.

    I purchased a HP Probook i5 from one of my clients, was only 18 months old and in really good condition. Busy transferring all my data to the new laptop and installing all necessary applications. Interesting thing was I did not realise that onedrive was running on the HP laptop and man it make the computer so slow. Task Manager showed that the disk processes was at 100%. Not sure what all that means but if obviously was making the laptop work too hard. After disabling onedrive performance was restored.

    It could be hot cause of it's nature, you really need to check other parts not only it fan. When it started ? Check even battery of laptop, it may be dying out and it could be the reason of that. I have seen that in past many times. It all like chain reaction. P.S. Oh I see you already fixed the issue, my bad!

    Try disabling some of your chrome extensions and cleaning up dirty fans ! Worked wonders for me.
