Brand New Ideapad 320S Exceptionally Slow

2017-12-08, 22:33 PM

I just unboxed my 320S. The specs on the machine should be more than enough to allow for multitasking and handling streaming and basic work tasks, but the machine is struggling to load even the rich text editor in the online program I work with. It's also been unable to stream videos (beyond YouTube length shorts) without pausing and needing to be reloaded.

Is this a common problem with machines running Windows 10? Is there something I can/should do to boost performance?

It's possible that that's part of it. Unfortunately, the machine was so slow as to be almost completely unusable. I'm guessing it was a faulty model. All the drivers were updated. Nothing seemed to help. 

Given my particular circumstances (needing a reliable machine ASAP for work), I wound up returning. Had this been a casual use PC I might have just asked them to try and fix or replace it. 

It really is a shame. The hardware seemed pretty nice for the price and the screen and graphics were lovely when they loaded. I just couldn't get it to operate properly.
