Answers :

That is not a lot of space for the computer to operate, especially depending on if windows is managing a page file for extra memory, which it does by default. Delete as much data as possible, maybe get more than 10GB of free space. Also, try running the laptop by itself and see how long it will run with just the desktop showing. If it will run for a considerable longer amount of time that way, I would say that the free space is the issue......keep me posted...
