Ideapad 330 slow

I've recently bought a new ideapad 330 (i7 8250U,8gb ram 1 tb HDD), set it all up and updated everything that needs updating (windows/drivers) but its running extremely slow.

 

While I get its not the most powerful laptop it should be able to handle me doing more than 2 task at a time without it causing me porblems.

 

Its struggling to switch windows when I'm doing multiple things and generally running awful,the boot is slow and until it opens google chrome takes about 2 minutes

 

Any ideas why this brand new laptop is running like I've had it years old?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Ideapad 330 slow

Check to see if you are in battery saving mode. That could potentially slow it down. Also look to see how many programs are open inside the task manager. Having a lot of programs open could also be the case. I recommend disabling the startup for any program you don't need in task manager. Is your memory, HDD, and CPU usage high?

Re: Ideapad 330 slow

I have also purchased one of these and I have to say it is the worst laptop I have had.

It is soooooooo slow doing anything.  Takes a couple of minutes to get to the login screen, then about 2 minutes before I can actually do anything. Then starting programs and switching between them is so painful.

 

What's the crack Lenovo??????

Re: Ideapad 330 slow

i believe your problem is that 1tb, if possible you should opt for an sata ssd or m.2 nvme ssd your will notice a dramatic improvement in your systems response time and productivity.

Re: Ideapad 330 slow

Hello everyone

 

I am a French User (sorry I use the Google translation from French to English).

 

I just bought a IDEAPAD 330 17IKBR Model 81DM009AFR (same configuration as Filipe0136) I see the same slowness, equipped with an HDD, I would like to replace this with a SSD Samsung 860 QVO DE 1TO. 

I would like to know if this SSD is compatible with my device? If yes after having clooner and put it in place of the HDD is there a manipulation to do in the bios?

 

I thank you in advance for all that will help me. Have a good day.

Re: Ideapad 330 slow

Any SATA device works in any SATA port! There is no "limited compatibility". Oh, by the way, do NOT go for SSDs with QLC memory as that memory is slower and more unreliable than TLC memory. Go for the regular 860 Evo, but not the QVO.

It is an absolutely expected occurrence for devices with a regular HDD as a boot device to be very slow. You should never buy a device which has no SSD as a boot drive.

Did I/anybody else help you? Give a Kudo!

Re: Ideapad 330 slow

Thanks @Benji96 for your advices.Yesterday finally I cloned my HDD and installed the SSD in my pc. Startup time is less than 20 seconds.It's a success. 1 month ago I had to do the same manipulation on another lenovo PC of the same series but with different configuration, unfortunately this one he never wanted to start either with the SSD or with its original HDD. I had to return it to the store. That's why I came here to ask the question before making a second betise. 

 

Second and last step, replacing the memory, I bought one of 8GB that I will add to the 4GB which is soldered to the motherboard. Normally I'll get it tomorrow.

 

Merci beaucoup a tou et a bientot = Thanks a lot to all and see you soon

This happens due to the rapid charge tech.

it probably prioritizes the rapid charge over performance. To disable it i used Lenovo Vantage toolbar that has an option to turn it off and on.
