I have had an ASUS Laptop since 2017 and recently it has been severely underperforming in doing simple tasks, such as browsing google chrome and playing several games ( League Of Legends, CS:GO ), where it has this problem of constantly freezing for an extended period of time, usually about 10-30 seconds, and it constantly happens every time I try to do something. I have tried everything from cleaning it, dusting it, changing the thermal paste and re-installing drivers multiple times It is always plugged into the wall and set on high-performance mode and I'm using a 960m not the iGPU on the CPU.
