Hi guys,

My girlfriend purchased the following laptop a while back.
HP 15-af067sa
amd a8 7410 / 2.2ghz
8gb ram
2tb hdd
amd r5 graphics
windows 10

I understand that if you want performance in a laptop, prepare to pay. But this laptop is currently struggling to do the basics. Playing YouTube videos sometimes stutters (once allowing video to buffer), 2 incidents of complete system freezing needing restarting, very slow reaching windows from the HP splash screen and she also says it crashes during playing sims 3 on low settings.

I have run malwarebytes and avg and found nothing, I have followed a guide on disabling some background services to improve windows 10 performance and also increased page filing to the 8gb ram. I know installing an SSD would help with speed issues but im stumped on the performance issues?

Thanks in advance for any help!
