    Default Laptop running slow

    Hi,

    I have a laptop with details as follow:

    - Sony Vaio E Series (Model: SVE141E11W)
    - Processor Intel i7 3632
    - RAM 4 GB
    - Hard Disk : 750 GB
    - Display adapter: AMD Radeon HD 7500M / 7600M Series
    - OS : MS Windows 10 Home

    Can someone explain to me why is it running so slow? I am not install many programs and I have lots of free disk space.

    Thanks

    Might want to upgrade your memory to at least 8GB.

    Ryzen 5 5600X
    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro Wi-fi
    Corsair Hydro H100x
    32GB DDR4 @ 3200MHz
    WD 512GB M.2 PCI-E 4 NVMe
    WD 1TB M.2 PCI-E 4 NVMe
    Gigabyte Aorus RTX 3070 Ti Master
    Corsair 4000D Airflow
    Corsair RMx 850W

    "Hard Disk : 750 GB"
    Get a SSD hard drive. Manufacturers often put quite slow HD's in laptops . Also , SOME old mechanical HD's can sometimes slow to a crawling speed (basically starting to die)
    A SSD Hard Drive can make a huuuge difference.

    8Gb Ram is better than 4Gb & would help if have have a lot of things open at the same time.

    Given its age , it could be bogged down with alot of crud & crap (technical terms) . A Win10 reload or 'refresh' might help.

    Also , define 'slow'
    Slow to do what ?
    Slow to load win, slow to play games, slow internet speeds , slow to open apps, slow to open cloud based apps/docs .

    Windows10 updates can slow some systems , as they download & install. Or if an large updates fails & continuously retries .
