Slow Notebook - Why?
hey everyone, i have a question with regards to the new notebook i recently bought. i bought a new notebook around 2 months ago, and it is just so slow. here are afew specs:
-40 gb HD ( to which i have used maybe 4-5 gb )
-2.73 ghz processor
it also takes an extremly long time to start up, i timed it the otherday and it took approx 5 minutes for it to load windows, and before i could start using the computer.
if i wanted to open, say ms word, it would take approx 45-60 secs to open, my question is why? i do not understand why such a new computer can be so terribly slow, what can i do to fix this problem? should i put more hardware in? i.e more ram? would more ram make the computer run faster, and speed up the time it takes to open ms word etc.
thank you, any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
