my new ideapad 320 just arrived and right out of the box it is SLOOOOOOOOOW. Infuriatingly slow, to the point that I wonder if it will crash. It also won't detect my second monitor which is irritating. I am going to play dumb and call Lenovo support since it's still within the warranty period and threaten to return if they can't suggest a change. I really don't want to have to wipe and reinstall Windows.

Similar symptoms. Disk usage 100% when i tried to instal something. To save others precious time: Download win10 iso from microsoft web and do a clean instal and let windows download drivers itself. I tried to do a instal from recovery partition but that windows came full of bloatware, unupdated. Once I did original windows instal problems went away and computer behaves as it should. Don't worry about licence keys. Your windows key should be in bios. Windows will activate digitally. This was really frustrating experience cause I come from Mac world. New computer should work and behave like new. Happy for HW but the software side of Lenovo products dissapointed me. Almost convinced the person to buy SSD cause this was my first win 10 experience and I thought it was slow as hell and can't work on HDD.

I have the same laptop. I just bought it 1 month ago. My recomendation is ALWAYS format the system. This week also I bought 1 memory stick (16 GB). And I have no trouble at all.

I have the same problem for 3 months it was super slow slower than the my old laptop. I had busy for 3 months and did not care about any solutions. After checking the forum I prepared a win 10 installation usb from microsoft site and set up the windows again. It is 100x faster now! Lenovo please check your embeded windows in the laptop there is something going wrong in your OS. Definetely it is worth to try and difference like day and night.
windows setup took 90 mins. not 6 hours!
