Re: why is my pc running really really slow?

There could be a LOT of reasons, from whatever software is installed, to the hardware specs, to malware and viruses. Check the Task Manager to see if the CPU is maxed out, Give us the model and product number so we can check out the hardware specs, run an antivirus scan and an anti malware scan. See if your Hard Drive is full, etc. Just too many variables for such a generic and common PC issue.

    Hi there @tanyalaing50 

    Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel.

     

    Presumably you are also having a speed problem with your notebook. I am happy to help you, but please post the full product number and verify the operating system in use on your notebook. See the following, if you need help with that information.
    How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number?
    Is the Windows Version on My Computer 32-bit or 64-bit?

     

    Are there any other details you can give me?

    Has it always been slow, or was it after using it for a period of time?

    Does the speed drop, mostly when you are on the internet?

    If it only recently began to perform slower, have you tried a System restore to an earlier configuration?

     

    Please let me know, and I can better offer suggestions for things you can try.
