I bought a Lenovo Y510P laptop yesterday and it is extremely slow. It takes quite long to start up, simple tasks such as opening the control panel will freeze it for a about 30seconds. I haven't dared putting any demanding software on it (apart from Chrome and McAfee (paid subscription)). My 6-year old Toshiba P300-17R is faster, which is completely ridiculous. I have no idea why it is this slow. Could anyone point me in the right direction for fixing this annoying problem?
8GB RAM, 4th gen Intel Core i7-4700MQ, NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M, 1TB HDD + it was running Windows 8, now updated to 8.1
Thanks so much!
(p.s. I wasn't sure in which sub category to put this and I thought it might be a Windows 8 problem - sorry if this is the wrong forum!)
