My laptop was slow taking 5 minutes to boot so I decided to reformat it. The boot time is below one minute now, but my compmuter is still slow (installation time and can't run the games on the same setting as when I first had it). I was wondering if my hard drive was failing?? I ran the Lenovo quick storage test and this was my result:
|Rotation Rate:||5400 RPM|
|Physical Sector Size:||4096|
|Logical Sector Size:||512|
|Supported Standards:||ATA8-ACS, ATA7-ATAPI, ATA6-ATAPI, ATA5-ATAPI, ATA4-ATAPI|
|Specification Version:||ATA8-ACS version 6|

Did you resolve the issue with your slow y410P?
I Purchased my y410P laptop (12GB & 32GBssd) in March 2014.
My Y410P started running very, very slow. Scanned for all types of malware and none were found. In Sept 2014 I decided to install an "IMAGE" I created with all my applications after I first purchased the laptop. The laptop was a little faster, but still continued to run slow after the image was installed, then I installed all windows updates. Still running slow. In Nov 2014, I decided to perform a "factory default" installation and the laptop is still running slow. I was initially happy with the Y410P; it had an extremely fast boot time and very fast over all.
Purchased the Lenovo Y410P to replaced a "GREAT" laptop I purchased in 2005 and updated to Windows7 Pro in 2010.
My next step is to contact Lenovo.
