    Went from Windows 3 to 3.1, 3.11 then 95 and finally XP.....
    Re the Model number -- try this. In Search type in System - Select System Information -- it should be written under Model ( or similar)


    Nothing wrong with W10. I've posted this MANY times on how to speed up W10.

    Click Start - Go upto the cog, open Settings.

    Click on System- Click on Notifications & Actions.
    Under Notification, turn ALL off
    Go back to the main Setting page, click on Privacy, on left scroll down, click on Background Apps. Turn ALL off. Note: any apps that need to be on will prompt you open the prompt and turn back on that one App.

    Reboot.

    To get even more speed, open the Task manager - startup Tab, turn off all the rubbish running on start up ( things not needed)

    You can also turn off Fast Boot under the power settings, sometimes its actually slow boot

    Got a HP W10 here right now, slow as a wet week, took close to 4 minutes to boot to the desktop. Disabled all the crap - including crap-a-Fee , changed above settings, now boots in 30 seconds. NOW to clean out the infections from rouge programs and reg cleaners (groan) that someone installed.

    That does not correspond to any HP model, it will be 15 aw001au, I think you will find.

    Looking back over this thread, the only actual problem mentioned is the laptop is running slow ?

    Removing or resetting the battery wont really do anything.

    If all the above is done, and its still slow, then there's really only two other causes - A Hardware problem ( HDD Mainly) OR some sort of software corruptions or to much running in the background for the amount of power available.

    To check the HDD - download crystal disk info ( direct download link) CrystalDiskInfo. Unzip the contents and run it, it takes a few moments, but if its a blue result then the Drive should be OK, if Yellow or red - there's a problem.

    As for software, bit hard with no info as to what's running or installed.

    Did you extract the files first? Just d/loaded and used it, extract, then double click on the relevant 32 or 64 file.
    Amnesia International, remembering for those that can't.

    No trees were harmed in the making of this post but a few electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

    OK posted while I did

    Check on the updates manually as well, they sometimes can take a while and slow thing s down, esp if the computer is not on a lot /or for a reasonable time.

    Eg: these go on at 7am - off at 10.30-11 PM.
