Hey guys, my laptop I currently running my HP DV7-3162NR has been really slow lately. It hasn't been running as fast as I first got it. I reformatted it many times with various Windows OS and 64bit and 32 bit versions. They all end up the same. Very slow and sluggish. I first thought it may be my CPU Overheating so I tore it open and cleaned out the fans and etc since they've been really loud but the problem still persists. It runs at 45-50C idle. It isn't the RAM since I'd probably get blue screens and etc. This has been happening for months. I really don't understand why. I have a custom desktop PC and I'll probably give it a try by lending it my SSD to see if its a HDD issue. I also heard it may be a power supply issue to cause the CPU to underclock itself due to its low power but I can monitor it (If i can get it to open up without waiting 10 minutes) and seems to run fine able to reach 2.3ghz and load is only 30-45%.
My current Specs are listed as.
AMD Turion II Dual core 2.3ghz M520
A normal 500GB Laptop SSD at 7200 RPM.
4GB DDR2 Ram.

Any help please ?

Maybe its the 4GB of DDR2? Lol, just kidding.

Hmm, my guess is the hard drive. Try the SSD.

Yeah, not sure if it'll fit idk. I wanna see if its forsure the hard drive so I kinda want to plug it in to this computer and see if I can scan it for errors or etc. Any program that'll help me do that ?

BTW, if it isn't the HDD then what could be another possibility ?

Maybe the processor is slowing down, or its just being thermaly throttled.
