New Lenovo L512 experiences slowdowns

I've got a two-month old Lenovo L512 running 32-bit Win 7 with 4 GB of RAM (only 2.9 usable).


I've noticed that the computer tends to run slowly, both when I'm online with a wireless connection at 54 mbps (and a super fast cable modem) and when I'm trying to work offline. I've tried both Firefox 4 and IE 8 to see if it's my browser, but the entire computer is slow.


I have a single virus scan program, I don't have many installed programs, and don't tend to run too many at a time. I've checked the cache size on my browsers. I have plenty of room on my hard driver. I've scanned for viruses and malware. (All clean.)


I'm very frustrated by the slowdowns and am wondering if I have a lemon computer on my hands.


Any recommendations or advice would be appreciated greatly.

Hello mate,


When you are using your computer, do you notice if your hdd activity is important or not ?(hdd led blinking a lot)

You can try to install CCleaner and clean your laptop, defragment your hdd, and get rid of a couple of startup programs.
