"... I'm suspecting once a brand new ac adapter is engaged...that part of the problem should work ok now...After you tell us paging file is performing without disappearing between boot/startups, we can tackle the overall computer slowness.
So you're saying a new AC adapter will fix the problem?
I see I should have phrased it a little differently:
If after doing the settings [called for earlier], if after a couple of Restarts [*], now that the laptop is being properly powered; if Windows boot and startup works, if Windows properly restarts or shuts down, if Windows' paging file works as it should -- then we know one solution works.
After all of that, if Windows is still slower than you believe it should be, then we can tackle that problem by starting with: MiniToolBox and Piriform's Speccy, saving all generated logs, and posting info as the BC Regular Team's boilerplate post[s] will indicate.
[*] By Restarts, I mean: Restart. Let Windows come to full Desktop, let Windows "heal itself." A few minutes later, Restart. I have found that if I patiently "leave Windows alone" between test restarts, things often go much better. When testing is over, make your OS and data partition backups onto your chosen reliable external media, then make Windows work smart & hard for you, do what you want to do.
