Re: Thinkpad T420 SLOW SLOW

How exactly is it slow? Are you running the preloaded OS?

Any viruses?

Re: Thinkpad T420 SLOW SLOW

Run CPUZ to see what  your processor clock speed is. Something may be causing it to throttle back.

 

Also try downloading a rescue disk to scan for virus/malware such as http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/rescuedisk

 

Failing that, reinstall the OS, before you install any other applications is it still slow? If so maybe get it looked at under warranty.

Load Resource Monitor, go to the Overview tab, and see if anything is using abnormal amounts of CPU or disk.

Also check the SMART values with HD Tune.

You said you checked for malware with Symantec and NOD32.  Does that mean you have BOTH of them installed?  If so, that alone can cripple your speed.

 

Also, how many fonts do you have installed?

Re: Thinkpad T420 SLOW SLOW

I also have this problem but my thinkpad is only 3 days old! It is slower than my 4 year old acer with an i2 processor and half the ram.

Can anyone give me an idea of why it is so so so slow?

I have 2GB ram and i5, windows 7 premium. 

Help?!

Re: Thinkpad T420 SLOW SLOW

Can you try checking your hard drive with HD Tune (health tab)?

Is your BIOS up to date?

Can you try using the High Performance power profile?
