Hi

I have had this laptop for a long time. It started about a year ago crawling. I tried everything to no avail and purchased a new one. But I want this one as a back up. I found out it was not updated. I installed the updates and it worked like a charm for a couple of weeks, then crawled again. So I reinstalled windows but it still crawls.
It has to be a hardware issue no?

The HDD/SSD may be failing. You can download DiskGenius in my signature. Select your disk go up to the toolbar to Disk/View SMART information. This will give you a quick snapshot of the health of your drive. If it is any less then Good, it needs to be
Spunk.funk

I just did the “Disk/View SMARTinfo” and it says about “ Health status” “ WARNING!”
I don’t want to run the other long test, everything takes forever to do on the laptop.
How do I know which SSD HD I need?
Is it easy to do?

Thxs again
