According to the specs I could find on your model PC, (1) it came out in 2013, (2) it came with Win8 preloaded, not Win10.


When a PC older than 3 years starts to run really SLOWLY, the primary thing to suspect is a failing hard drive -- especially if this is a problem you have noticed only recently.


If your PC is new enough to support UEFI, you can use these steps to test the hard drive:

If not, to check the drive you have to follow these steps:
1) Press Esc key repeatedly, several times a second, while rebooting the laptop. Do NOT hold the key down, just press it over and over.
2) Eventually, you will see an HP Startup Menu -- that will look similar to the image below ...

3) press the Function key for testing the hard drive (usually F2) and let it run.

Please report back the test results.
