Laptop is extremely slow

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi Community,

 

My laptop which is just over a year old performs very poorly. It takes all the time in world to just open a website . Also switching from one page to another and clicking on any event on a page is very time consuming. The performance of this laptop very slow. Could you please suggest how to resolve this. 

Thank you,

Hello @anand_663 

 

Perform some basic hardware checks to rule out hardware problem

Here is more info >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JXUp43ahHA

 

Let me know the test results.

 

Back to Windows:

 

1. Optimize

- de-fragment your Hard Disk Drive (if you have hard disk drive) > https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/8933-optimize-defrag-drives-windows-10-a.html

- run Disk Clean Up - cleanmgr.exe > https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3012-disk-cleanup-open-use-windows-10-a.html

 

 

2. Remove unneeded and temporary files. Download and run BleachBit . Here are instructions

3. Scan your PC for threats, viruses, malware...

 

3.1.... Run the free ESET Online Scanner >> http://download.eset.com/special/eos/esetonlinescanner_enu.exe

Scan your PC for viruses, threats and unwanted/unsafe applications - remove if anything found.

 

3.2.... Run AdwCleaner >>https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

 

Let me know in details if they found something and what it was....

 

 

4. Uninstall any programs you definitely do not use but you think might be a bit high on resources. You can uninstall them from Control Panel > Programs and features

 

5. Extra reading - read the official HP article about such problems >> https://support.hp.com/us-en/topic/diagnostics?category=computing&issue=computer-slow

 

 

I am looking forward to your reply, results and details.

@anand_663 

Is it JUST opening websites, or does it affect other stuff, as well?

 

How about launching an application, does that take a long time?

 

How about creating a file and entering text -- does that take a long time?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply on my issue.

The laptop is overall slow. Each and every activity takes indefinite time to complete whether it is launching any application, opening any website or creating any file or typing/editing content in it. Moreover, I didn’t find any solution in your response. Could you please explain once again your solution. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply.

I will try steps mentioned by you and provide you the outcome but that will take long time.
