Hello, first time posting here.
I have an ASUS N53SV laptop and I came across what I feel like it's a hardware problem. I travel quite often between my college and home and I take my laptop along with me in my backpack. After one particular trip, I realized that there was some problems occurring on my laptop. There were lots of stutters and small freeze duration, musics and videos would pause for a second every once in a while and come back on, and it would have problem even loading the simplest files here and there like an image file. It can run games that I usually play without a hitch, but there were latency spikes once or twice during 30 minute worth of playing.
I'm thinking about disassembling it and see if there's any sort of faulty connection, but I would rather not start this without knowing what might be the root of the problem. I know the basics of computer...but not enough for me to be confident in what I am doing.
I'm guessing this is a problem with the CPU or the RAM (Most likely the former)??
Thank you for taking your time.
