Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530 3259 Very slow at booting up.

2013-07-30, 12:15 PM

So I got the E530. I7 and win 8. 

But, if I am using the Normal "lenovo" install of the Win 8, it takes way to long to boot up, and be ready for use. And just when I am done booting up, I can see, that already 28% of memory is used up. Just for "clean" windows. We are talking 5 min, from I press the power button, ontil I can open Internet explore/chrome. (and even then, it have to think for 10 sek, to open it up. 

When I did a clean install of Window 8 (from clean MS disk I got for for my Desktop PC) It still takes around 5 min, before windows is loaded. But now I am down to around 15-18% of memory use. 


When I am installing program, and starting things up, it takes WAY to long. I have a laptop from HP, that is 6y old now, and is WAY faster at booting up windows 8, and other programs. 

Overall, for a laptop in this price range, I think its the worse laptop you can ever buy. It is something I would expect from a cheap end laptop, with Intel i3 with 500mb ram. (witch I think will be as fast as this one) 

Any ideas what can be the problem.  


I tried to use lenovo scanning tools, but they all came out clean with no problems found.
