Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E545 extremely slow

Hey! So I bought my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E545 about a year and a half ago, and right out of the box this brand new computer was EXTREMELY slow. Internet pages load extremely slow, games play choppy and slow, I cannot watch streams with my computer, and I cannot view HD videos on any platform. This should not be happening with a brand new computer with 16 gigs of ram. I should've submitted it for repair or returned it earlier but I guess I always thought I would find the problem and download a driver or something and the problem would be fixed, but alas, it is still functioning like a laptop from 2001. Any advice or help is much appreciated, thanks.

Hi Monger,


Welcome to Lenovo Forums.


Maybe you would want to remove any unnecessary think vantage software’s or other software’s that you don't need. 


Additionally try updating the OS and drivers, you can let Windows update do this. 


Try disabling all start-up programs, to see if's it's a faulty program.

The easiest way is to use the msconfig program.

I would also try seeing what program is eating up the resources, ctrl+shift+esc.


I hope the above information helps.
