Hi@charliie, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


As I understand, your notebook performs slow, 

No worries, as I'll be glad to help you, that said, I'll need a few more details to dissect your concern & provide an accurate solution:

When was the last time it worked fine?

Were there any hardware/software changes made? 

Does it perform slowly while playing games or even while browsing and working on the computer?

Have you tried any troubleshooting steps? 


Let's try these steps to resolve the issue: 


Refer to this link:


Also, try these steps: 

Run a system test: 

  • Press the Power button to turn on the computer and immediately press the F2 key repeatedly, about once every second, until you see HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI.
  • From the UEFI main menu, click System Tests, then click Quick Test.
  • Click Run once.
  • While the test is running, the time remaining and test results for each component are shown on the screen. The test can take up to 15 minutes.
  • If no system component failed, please go back to the main menu and Exit from the screen

Update BIOS: Follow steps from the link:


Also, ensure Window updates are installed and completed. 


Update the graphics drivers from our website:
