T440p with Windows 7 very slow

Hi,

 

I have a T440p Lenovo Thinkpad laptop. OS is Windows 7 professional. It is very slow as visible when trying to open any normal sized file (like PPT, word doc etc.) stored on my local harddrive, it takes visible amount of time before file actually opens up. Earlier I was having HP Elitebook with Windows XP and similar files used to open-up instantly.

 

Please let me know what could be the reason and how this issue could be resolved.

 

Regards,
Amit

Hi Amit,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with slow performance on your ThinkPad T440p.

 

  1. Have you checked disabling Anti-Virus application?
  2. Is the issue persisting in “Safe Mode”?
  3. Run hardware scan from the Lenovo solution center app, and check if it is showing any error in it.

Hope this helps.

 

Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar

I have not yet got a chance to try these things. On my Lenovo laptop, we have McAfee installed.

 

But, I would like to tell you that McAfee was installed on my earlier HP Elitebook Laptop as well and there was no speed related issue visible at all. HP laptop was 5 year old model and far inferior in terms of HW Configuration as compared to my current lenovo T440p laptop. Only other difference was that HP laptop was running Windows XP as opposed to Windows 7 on my Lenovo laptop.

Hi Amit,

 

Thank you for the reply!

 

What about booting into “safe mode” & LSC test result? Have you checked with this option?

Also check with performing clean boot option.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: T440p with Windows 7 very slow

How long have you been using the current operating system? What programs startup when booting?

 

 Having a large number of programs start with boot will make the computer seem slow. I use msconfig to prevent any unneccasary programs running, same for services. If all you have is the antivirus starting and your hard drive is not failing I would reinstall the OS. It's good to do this about once a year for moderate to heavy users. It just becomes slower over time. Reinstalling it brings back all the speed it had when new. Just my 2 cents.

Many times this is a result of an overburden of cookies. Have you tried Windows own utility, Disk Cleanup or the free version of Ccleaner. If you are not familiar with Ccleaner Read about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CCleaner
