Laptop preformance is slow after Upgrade

You upgraded the BIOS and now your operating system thinks it's on a different machine. When the operating system is installed it looks at the hardware on the machine and installs itself accordingly. While not every BIOS upgrade will effect the OS you should reload the operating system anytime you change the BIOS unless you know for sure that the BIOS upgrade did not change any of the critical functions of the machine.

My two cents.
