Laptop is slow even after reformatting...what to do next?
I bought a dell studio 1555 in mid 2009. This computer worked great for me until about the begging of this year. I have tried reinstalling windows twice. Both times it made it significantly faster, but after a week or so it is just as slow as it used to be. Ive made sure to install avg anti virus as soon as possible both times. I'm curious what i could try differently or what i might be doing wrong. One idea i had was swapping the old hdd for a small ssd to increase the speed there. Tell me what you think. Thanks!
