What's a 'sym'?

(edit) aha, short for system.

I am not sure what your current problem is but splitting the 140GB partition will most certainly not solve any problems with the Laptop taking too much time.

You can partition the drive but there is risk in doing so.

If your computer is slow it may be infected with malware or simply have too many programs running.

Download and use CCleaner slim to clean out temporary files.

Find it at the link below.

I repeat, you can do that but it WILL NOT speed up your computer.

You need third party software like partition Magic to perform that. You can render your drive unreadable if something goes wrong.

Do you have any backups of your personal files? Try using msconfig from the run command in Windows. Look at the startup tab. Try unticking programs that are not needed at startup. That will not remove those programs but just stop them from loading at startup.
