Re:New Ideapad 320 really slow?

2020-04-27, 13:19 PM

Hi All, 

I had this issue and tried lots of googling and fiddling. Even when I got it sorted a few days later it would be back.

 

So I decided to go for it and upgraded to a new SSD with a fresh install of Windows 10 and it's worked a treat, It boots up in 10-13 seconds.

 

I didn;t want to clone the old set-up onto the SSD as it could take the old problem onto the new machine so I decided to get the new SSD set-up with a  fresh Windows 10 install.

 

Its worked a treat and it now boots up on 10-12 seconds

 

Approach

  1. Buy new SSD (Crucial MX500), External hard drive caddy (to put the new ssd in) and a Ideapad internal mount for 2nd drive
  2. Put new SSD in the external hard drive caddy 
  3. Initialised the new disk, formatted and partitioned it
  4. install Windows 10 on it (need to use software like Win to USB) - ended up buying a new licence key off ebay for ease
  5. Changed the boot disk to be the external SSD (F2 and change the bios start up) 
  6. Added any other software I had
  7. Moved my data from the HDD to the new external SDD
  8. Swapped the SDD with the HDD in the PC - very simple, several videos on it 
  9. Put the HDD in the new internal mount in caddy - Note lenovo support says this will not work, but it is all there and it does
  10. Got Laptop to recognise the new HDD as a second drive - have to go into DISKPART to make sure it is online and visible - googled it.
  11. Formatted the old HDD and then copied all the files

 

 

I had no idea how to do the above at the beginning, just "some" experience with tinkering, but everything you need is on Google and I now look at my laptop with a smile rather than hatred (although the battery life is awful at 2-3 hours which a complaint with the model rather than the move to SSD.

 

The original issue must be in the way they install windows or the software they bundle in with it

 

Hope this helps in some way

Well, if you'd care to read preceeding messages, you'd know the answer. 

 

So why not do that?

Es la primera Laptop que me ha defraudado.

Sumamente lenta, desde el día que la compré, hace 3 años. El navegador se congela con el tradicional "no responde"

Desactivé el antivirus y los programas del inicio y apenas, apenas mejoró un poco.

Hasta mi antigua Exxo con win 7 es más rapída y estable.

As above, after spending weeks with an increasingly worse performance despite having undertaken the various "repairs" within this thread, I bit the bullet and invested in a SSD (cost £35 from SCAN in the UK). 

 

Having searched Google, I cloned the Hard Drive to the SSD via a USB/SATA3 cable (about £4 off e-Bay), initially using free EasyUS software, but after a week, I gave up with this as I couldn't reboot. However, on another site, they recommended Macrium Reflect (also free) which worked perfectly, although it took around 4 hours to complete the clone.

 

Although the laptop is not lightening fast in starting up, it is an order of magnitude faster booting than with the HDD. Also significantly quicker when opening programmes, files, internet browsers etc.
