Question

Laptop is very slow.

My laptop became very slow. Couple of months ago I've replaced my hard drive, which died, with an old one i had and my PC got a new life.

2 weeks ago it became very slow so I thought it was hard drive again and simply bought a new SSD.

However problems are still there, you can feel that something is slowing down my laptop. I've reinstalled Windows 10, but the issue remains.
IT's especially visible in Chrome as it takes that 1 second extra to load pictures and such things.

I have 8gig of RAM and thought that this may be the issue, so i've tested both sticks one by one - no faults found.
I have no clue what could be the issue in this case. Is it possible that 2 sticks failed at the same time?

Toshiba, model: S50-B-13D
