Hi guys. I have a ideapad 330s 14 inch screeen intel core i7 8th generation 1 T HD 4G RAM 1 year old, of course no warranty at this point

I have antivirus instaled

The laptop has become really slow, to the point it is making very hard to make it start.
I am looking for suggestions. Increasing RAM may help?
Thanks

clean boot

check the memory by running memtest.org usb autoinstaller (bootable USB flash drive)

check the hard drive for errors with its manufacturer´s tool

With those specs, yes another 4gb of RAM would help as would swapping the drive for a solid state and doing a clean Windows setup. Or just try a clean Windows setup, it's likely to help you more than trying to sort out the issue on the current build, but more RAM and a solid state drive will speed it up by a lot.
