Hello,







I have a Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH gaming laptop. Recently, particularly after a Windows Update caused a black screen desktop (ironically fixed via another Windows update) boot times have been upwards of 4-5 minutes, when it was previously near 45 seconds. I have no idea what the problem could be as no programs begin on startup except for critical processes. I have also noticed a downgrade in performance of the computer past boot, and it freezes constantly during the installation of any program. Specifications & screenshots are below. Also, please note, I've only had this computer for near 8 months however it did come refurbished, which does bring HDD failure concerns, but it is covered under warranty nevertheless.







CPU: Intel Core i7-8750H (@ 2.20GHz)



Memory: 16GB DDR4 2666MHz



Storage (HDD): 1 TB 7200 RPM Sata Hard Drive



Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB







Other Specifications:
Windows 10 Home

upgrade to a ssd

I would, but since it's a laptop and I have no experience, I'd rather not.
I've been contemplating whether or not I should get it to the manufacturer to see what's going on, because this behavior is very abnormal for this type of computer.

run hdd health check. check cpu temp
defrag the hdd. windows 10 update probably fragmented lot of files
Thanks for the quick reply again. Appreciate it.
I used CrystalDiskInfo and the HDD is in "Good Status". (38 degrees C). I also ran a Windows check, all Ok's.
The CPU is not an issue as its barely being utilized on idle, nor does it get particularly warm or the fans kick in.
I would defrag the HDD but I have a weird system glitch where it's seen as an SSD. I tried everything to fix it but it wouldn't budge.
