Re: New Ideapad 320 really slow?

Using an SSD instead of a hard disk will always improve performance but, truth is, you shouldn't need to do that with a new computer.

 

Did you do any speed tests - before and after upgrading to an SSD?

 

And was the machine largely unusable before the SSD upgrade?

Re: New Ideapad 320 really slow?

My laptop started to become slow within two days of doing disk cleanup.

 

 

Have read several articles and watched a handful of videos and did exactly what they said but nothing helped.

Atlast I have found a comment on an article which said; "If nothing works, select high performance in power options".

 

In lenovo idea pad 320 you dont have this option available, therefore you need to create a new power plan and select high performance.

 

My laptop is smooth now, still cant say for sure if the problem is gone or still persists. Will update within a few days.

 

Fingers crossed.

Re: New Ideapad 320 really slow?

It is a Eureka moment for me!!

 

After a heck of searching and mind boggling finally I found a solution and I hope it would help others also.

 

 

Earlier I had uninstall all bloatware of Lenovo, kept looking at the resource monitor for hours and hours stopping and disabling one process after another my disk was still 100% and my Laptop was as slow as a sloth.

 

I even updated all the drivers manually using a software called drive easy, but just after a few hours my laptop went on the ventilator (almost dead).

 

Finally, I decided to uninstall the windows and do a fresh installation, since I have tried almost all the options present on the youtube videos for 100% disk and slow laptop and also read numerous articles.

 

But, before uninstalling an idea struck me, and I decided to install all the software (bloatware) and diagnostics tools from Lenovo website using the following link:

 

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/sa/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/300-series/320-14isk/downloads?link...

 

Also installed Lenovo Service bridge.

 

Ran all the diagnostics and used the option of automatic update provided on the above link. It updated a few of my drivers did a handful of diagnostic tests and TADA!!!

 

Its a sigh of relief.

 

Rant over.

Please define "TADA".

 

Have you carried out any speed tests or is this just a subjective observation?

Re: New Ideapad 320 really slow?

Sorry for the slang.

 

I havent ran any speed tests, neither earlier nor now.

 

But, I observed that along with lagging and slowlness, my disk was also 100% utilized even without any application. And stopping processes one after another didnt help too.

 

And after doing all the diagnostic tests and automatic updates using Lenovo software my computer is smooth as it was never before. And I have started, restarted, shutdown, logged in and out several times in 24 hours to check and confirm.

 

I am not an expert in this field, but as per my observation my laptop's issue is resolved.

 

It may help others too, that is why I posted here.
