I bought a Hp Envy Laptop last year and it has all ways been slow every now and then weirdly stopping working and it was only today I noticed that my Disk Usage is constantly 95% and above. I used to work in a computer shop myself doing repairs so I regularly defrag and clean my files on top the fact this laptop has been rarely used so it has next to nothing on it but still having high disk usage. I've tried a lot to fix this and I've come down to the idea that its either a operating system error and I need a reinstall or a faulty hard drive.

If anyone has come across this before please comment asap as I could do with a hand!

Thanks in advance,
Jake

Many HP laptops have a set of built-in diagnostic utilities, including a hard drive scan. It might be found under F10, within the BIOS setup or in the boot menu (probably F9). If that test passes, use the Windows refresh function or if you wish you can download a copy of the most recent Windows 10, set it up on a bootable DVD or flash drive and install that (it will detect the embedded Windows 8 key and activate when it gets online, as a form of the free upgrade).
