If I were you, I would pull the current HDD or SSD. I would try another drive and install Windows 7 with the factory disk image set (if you have it), or a vanilla Windows 7 install. I would then install the core drivers from support.lenovo.com.
If that works, you at least know it's the other drive or the software on it causing you the pain.

I would replace that drive with one that is not failing.

Defragmenting should happen weekly, or daily if you want maximum performance.
Which Windows Vista/7 do in the background when your system is otherwise idle. Windows machines never become fragmented anymore.

I've another T420s i7 model 4174-GK3 and is Very very very SLOW machine.
XP recently installed.
No software running (only XP PRO)
CPU always below 1%
No Activity on disk.
The PC runs SLOWWWWWLY and becomes hot very fast.
I'm convinced there is a Hardware problem. I've just opened a RMA because it is in warranty.
I've held you informed.
