    What was the OS originally? It's possible that W8.1 overruns 4GB memory. Did you try the following URL before installing W8.1?

    hi i wanted to let you know that i found a bad backgroundprocess wich i up to two times truned off and now it runs normaly it was windows ..........

    dont know the rest of the name so thats why the dots
    it looks like it used mutch but not all mb/s but it was the one with the highest mb/s so now i get to updating and we will see what happens after that sorry if i did not mention that i did not instal updates but it runs like clock work now

    except that when writing this it looks like windows update does not do anything it says downloading but the bar remains empty for more than 15 minutes will ask this last header in a other forum part if this is nessasairy


    ps: thanks for the help and thinking you gave
