My laptop is too slow, I have no idea why. I installed new copy of Windows XP last night and formatted the hard drive and it didn't sort my problem out. I did basic hard drive maintenance such as disk cleanup, defrag, checkdisk etc. I've had this laptop for about 5-6 years and it became slow a couple of months ago. I never opened the laptop or anything like that at all. Please help me what to do, thanks.

Hello -

Lets hava a quick look at the system, even though it is a bit "oldish".

 

Download Security Check by Screen317
* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If any security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.

 

 

Download MiniToolBox, Save it to your desktop and run it.
Close any Firefox browsers you may have open
Checkmark the following boxes:
•Flush DNS
•Report IE Proxy Settings
•Reset IE Proxy Settings
•Report FF Proxy Settings
•Reset FF Proxy Settings
•List content of Hosts
•List IP configuration
•List last 10 Event Viewer log
•List Installed Programs
•List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
•List Minidump Files
 
Click Go and copy / paste the result (Result.txt).

 

Thank You -

Also; slap a new (or verified used) hard drive in that rig and reinstall.

Probably got tons o' dust in it as well: May be time to open it up and do some cleaning. These laptops (dv-series and others by HP) overheat and need lots of airflow. First signs of dying will include (but by no means limited to) intermittent wireless connectivity, graphics problems, unexplained shut-downs and slow to non boot-ups.

I would also like to see a log or two; maybe this HP is a keeper. If it has lasted 6 years there may be hope. :thumbup2:
