Laptop Slowness Baffling

  Danageddon 10:54 01 Aug 10


I have recently added a new hard drive and more ram in my laptop due to it running slow in the past. Yet this has made no difference, it is also spyware/virus free

When starting or running a programme it can take on average 5 minuets to open!

What could be the problem? Is there any other hardware i need to replace?

I'd be grateful for any

'adware/virus free'. Still worth going through FruitBat's sequence a few posts down - click here

found this in the past with pc's running xp, could not fix it did a format and clean install and they flew, could be a corrup program or software clash.

with you new hdd was it a image backup you used or fresh install of everything.

How did you setup the new Hard Drive, When OS was on the Old? did you use a Image to set it up?

If So you will have transferred the slow start-up problem and only a clean install will get it going
