Hey everyone,

 

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? 

 

Lenovo Y510P-00303NL

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!)

Hi cultblonde, and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

You posted that you purchased the computer yesterday.  Is this a new computer under warranty?

If this computer has a warranty i would return it back to where you purchased it. If not, please run A hard drive diagnostic using seagate seatools for dos.

You can follow this helpful guide to do that

Notice:  SeaTools for DOS will run on all manufacturer's hard drives, but may not recognize the hard drive if the Storage Configuration is not set in a configuration which SeaTools will recognize. 
 
If the motherboard has a Intel SATA controller the storage configuration for SATA must be set to AHCI.
 
If the mohterboard has a Marvel SATA controller the storage configuration for SATA must be set to IDE.
 
To determined how your storage is configured open the Device Manager and click on IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.This will expand the tree allowing you to see your storage configuration.
 
If you need to change the configuration you will have to go into the BIOS to make the change.
