Brand new pc slow from the first boot itself

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming - 15-ec0101ax
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I got a brand new gaming laptop, HP pavilion - 15-ec0101ax, it was slow from the moment I opened it, The boot speeds are real slow but that doesn't bother me much, the thing is that it's really slow in working too. The time it takes to open file explorer or chrome. It hangs a lot. The mouse cursor becomes unresponsive for 1 second a lot of times. Programs open but they take time to load up completely and again it hangs a lot. I have seen laptops with lesser ram, older cpu and gpu work like 4-5 times faster than this pc. Mind you it's like this from the first boot itself, I didn't download anything fishy on it or anything. I can'y figure what the cause is but I have observed that when it's really slow it shows 100% disk usage in task manager which normally should be around 10-20%. I don't know whether it's connected or not. Please help. I have been using this pc for 15 days.
