First off, I am not too computer savvy. However, I do love to play computer games and use PCs over Macs (just a preference).
Recently, I had a problem with my ASUS G-73jw laptop CPU cores and RAM spiking. On start-up, the CPUs will individually jump between 5-70 percent used, then cool off to about 1-10, maybe 20 percent on rare occasions. My RAM is constantly clocked from 17-19 percent used. Also, I notice the games I play, SC2 and DoW2 seem to lag more so now than when I first purchased the unit back in February 2011. Is this common?
I noticed this issue happening after I contacted ASUS about an issue with the lighted keyboard. I tried removing some of those crappy free game demos from the system and the lights went out. ASUS suggested resetting the system back to its original manufacture status. This issue happened twice, but the lights came back on both times.
Any suggestions will help. If you need me to do something, please provide step-by-step instructions. remember, I'm not that great with computers, but I can follow directions. Thanks for your help!
