Slow Laptop

By metoyoux1 ·
I used to use my personal laptop for work,they have since provided me with one just for work.
After i took my personal one home found that it now loads slow and runs really slow. When questioned IT at work was told that Windows was reinstalled straight over everything and that my laptop was not reformatted before this was done.
How do i do a reformat to clean up my computer so that it runs fast again.
Thank you

Hi Di!

I think your IT section are being a bit conservativew with the truth. It should'nt matter whether you format the hard drive or not, but what is more likely th ecase is that they haven't installed all of the device drivers or removed all of the old system settings. I would take the laptop to somebody who is a bit more IT savvy than your IT department and see if they can solve your problem.

Do you still have the recovery CDs that came with the laptop? If so, use those to restore the laptop to it's original condition. If not, that's going to be a lot more work on your part. Without knowing the specs on your laptop I can't tell you how to proceed.
