Hey, my laptop is becoming really slow. I posted another thread on here about my computer getting bsod, but it turns out it was overheated. Now it's really slow, sometimes when I turn it off it won't even turn off, just sit there witht the windows loading circle next to cursor. Please tell me what is wrong with it, is it the hard drive?
The First priority is to backup any important data which you should be doing always.
Once that is backed up then please test the hard drive. You can use windows error checking by right clicking on the drive then on properties tab. On the Tools tab you'll see the error checking section. Be sure to enable both options.There are free tools available as well as free utilities offered by the drive manufacturer.
