"update or upgrade of BIOS ?"
Doubt it.

"my laptop is so slow"
Lets start by checking this side of things.

Here is the first step, more steps will be needed, after I see the results of this log.

Run AdwCleaner

Tutorial

Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click Scan
In the results tabs, uncheck anything you don't want to remove.
Click on Cleaning.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please Copy & Paste the contents of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

Probably not. If you recently updated the BIOS, you should run thru ALL the settings & make sure they're correct - adjust as necessary & save before exiting.

Otherwise, your system is probably infected with malware. Johnw will walk you thru all the steps to clean it up.

Another thing you might wanna do is blow out the cooling vents with canned air. If dirt, dust, lint, etc has built up, it can cause the CPU to run hot in which case it will automatically lower it's speed in an attempt to lower the temp.

in ADDITION to the above, post your machine's specs, some machines may benefit from a simple upgrade. For example, if you have a 64bit operating system and have 4GB or less RAM then adding more memory (RAM) may improve things (assuming that you first clean your machine of junk as recommended above and still feel it could do better). Another option for after clean up is swapping your slow hard drive for a faster SSD drive which will help make it feel snappier and greatly improve starting and launching programs.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
