    Windows feels unresponsive after abrupt shutdown


    Hi,

    Recently, my UPS stopped working for unknown reasons, so while i sent it to repair, my computer had no backup power. Then, there was a storm here that made the lights flicker in a way that my computer shut down abruptly. Not only that, for 5 seconds it turned on and off really quickly. I was playing fallout 3 when that happened, and when i tried playing it again, my save game had corrupted.

    That was not the issue though. After this, my windows installation feels unresponsive. Weird little things happen, like sometimes i enter a website's address in chrome and hit enter, yet nothing happens, a white screen loads. I have to refresh, then it works.

    Also, sometimes menus don't work, like i hit Apply or Ok, but nothing happens, then i wait like 10 seconds then it works again.

    Another issue is my video card. It seems to have gotten loud when i play video games, i downloaded HWMonitor and it got up to 84 C, which isn't melting temperature but it's still pretty high. (it never got past 75 on high load, now it goes up to 80 for non-intensive games).

    What should i do to fix/troubleshoot this?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Have you ran a chkdsk on the drive and perhaps an sfc /scannow?

    Yep. Both. There was nothing wrong.
