To check for empty drives you first have to know what drives that you have in your system. Open up the case and have a look (don't touch - static could cause problems) and see what actual drives are in the system. Generally you'll find one hard drive and one or two CD/DVD drives.
First, and most important, locate the instructions on how to reset your BIOS to default values. This way, if an incorrect choice is made (and your system doesn't work), you'll be able to reset your BIOS to the default and get back into Windows.
Then, in your BIOS, look for those drives that you spotted - they should have been identified by the BIOS alread (but may have cryptic names). The remainder of the items may be marked Auto - but show no device. Those are the one's to set to "None". Then reboot and see if that fixes the speed issue.
