Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

You might want to mention the make and model of your laptop. An SKU for the laptop will help us two fold. As for your OS, what version of Windows 10 are you on at the time of writing? Was the OS cloned or did you reinstall the OS? To add, can you check and see what your BIOS version is for your laptop?
