My new laptop comes with an Intel I7 chip and Windows 8. My 4 year old laptop has whatever and runs Windows XP. Have been to a number of sites to test download/upload speeds for each machine. Without exception the old machine runs 4 to 5 times faster than my new laptop. Have run a couple of programs to find viruses and malware. All these show that the new machine is clean.

At my wits end as to what to do next

Arnrob,

 

Have you noticed a significant difference in speed using wireless vs wired? Please post your answer and we'll try to narrow this down. :thumbup2:

Many thanks for your response. I have, in fact, tried both wireless and wired. There was no discernible difference in the download/upload speeds.

Arnrob,

We'll need a few details to try to pointpoint the problem:

  • Edition of Windows 8 (Home,Pro,Enterprise)
  • Name and version of installed Anti-Virus/Security/Firewall software
  • Laptop model# and date of manufacture (if available)
  • Speedtest.net results from the laptop and from the old machine
  • Winsat disk performance results in command prompt (To open an elevated command prompt window, click Start, type 'Command', right-click Command Prompt, and click Run as administrator.) Run the following commands:
    • winsat disk -seq -read -drive c

    • winsat disk -seq -write -drive c
