LENOVO Z710 TOO SLOW on WIN 8.1

Hello Every one,

 

I recently purchased a Lenovo Z710 Brand New Laptop. ( 4 month ago ) with a lot of hopes of being able to use efficiently for my CAD applications. My previous laptop was also lenovo Travel Mate 270 which I was quite happy with.

 

In fact I expected much better performance with the new one. How ever it is very slow  even slower than the Travel Mate 270 . Even Excell 2010 take much longer on the New one that the old laptop. 

 

My RAM is 8GB. OS is windows 8.1. 

I was looking on LENEVO sites for a solution. But so far no satifying answer.

Could someone please tell me how to overcome this ?.

 

Any guidance would be grately appreciated.

hi sampathlenovo,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

Things that you can try to speed up the system:

1. set the power plan to High Performance and observe if you see any difference in terms of speed in opening apps

2. Open Task Manager and investigate the Process tab and list down the top 5 applications that are eating up alot of Memory, HDD, and CPU usage then temporary end these task and observe the PC performance.

3. Run a daignostic on the HDD using one of the following tools to verify its health:

 

  - Lenovo Diagnostic Tools (see Storage Test) or

 

 - HDTune

 - http://www.hdtune.com/faq_1.html

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards
