ill try and make it brief.. i have a acer laptop i had "closed" the lid too hard (yes in anger) when i opened it had restarted and said unable to start and done some restoring and checks of some kind. Finally it was running again. But now it takes so long to be able to use it once ive logged in to my profile.
It opens up windows and loads, but i cant click on anything (programs/browser etc) because it takes so long in loading. after about 10 mins things finally get up and running without waiting and will work like normal until i restart it.
Though at random times it just doesnt want to work and is extremely slow. When i try and open files or things it will say not responding and same to open web pages. Or for no reason just start a loading cursor and just jam up till i have to restart!
Have i damaged something? In runs fine in safe mode. i have tried chkdsk and sfc /scannow which stopes at 14%
i have tried other ideas to make it run faster, removing unnessesary programs and temp files, defrag, virus scans etc.
windows 7 came pre loaded on so i dont know what to do from here.
Any tips or checks i can do?
thanks in advance
