Re: Thinkpad T420 SLOW SLOW

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.

100% sure your HDD is failing. Replace immediately.

Re: Thinkpad T420 SLOW SLOW

The reallocation count is way too high. Anything more than one digit is a failing/failed drive to me.

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.
