Hello,

 

My laptop has been ridiculously sluggish as of late. When I turn it on for example there is a 3+ min period of time before any key i press register enough to enter a password. then once I finally login, theres another wait until I can open a browser or do anything else for that matter. The laptop itself is a GE72VR 6RF Apache pro. I'm not sure what the problem could be since its a fairly new computer, so any help would be appreciated so it doesn't constantly lag. Are there any diagnostic tests I can run on it to narrow down where the issue is coming from?

 

Thanks!

You can try going into command prompt (open with Administrator rights)   and type  sfc /scannow (let this run until it finishs) then type

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
