I'm going with not normal.

In reply to: Windows 10 lagging

A laptop I set up mom with was a 2006 Dell E1505 with (get this!) 1GB RAM, a dual core 32 bit Centrino and an 120GB SSD. Power up from cold would have a web page open in 35 seconds.

If you are getting lag, it's something else.

If You Installed Win10,Have You Checked For Updated Drivers?

In reply to: Windows 10 lagging

Be sure to check the computer manufacturer's or device manufacturer's website to obtain the latest drivers for your hardware which is supported on Windows 10. If you simply upgraded to Windows 10 "over the top" of Windows 8, you probably need to be sure all those drivers are current.. Also, be sure the latest BIOS is installed on the computer.

And after all that's done, it seems as though the Windows 10 "upgrade" process may not install all the files correctly, or maybe they're damaged, or maybe something else, but running Chkdsk has fixed quite a few of these minor glitches. Try running Chkdsk in "repair" mode to find any damaged files and correct them. Start by opening a command prompt as an admin. RIGHT click on the Start button, choose "Command Prompt (Admin). (Or type "Command" in the search line, then RIGHT click on the "Command Prompt" listing at the top, choose "Run as admin".) Once there, type chkdsk /f /r /x, leaving the appropriate spaces between the letters as shown, then press the Enter key. You should see a note that it can't be run till a restart is done, type "Y" for yes, then press the Enter key again. Close the command prompt and restart the computer. Chkdsk will run upon restart and will take quite a while to finish.. Don't panic when the progress bar stays at 10% for a long time. It's fairly normal and the Chkdsk process may take a couple of hours.

When it's finished, it will boot to your normal startup/lock screen and you can login normally and then see if things are working correctly again.

Hope this helps.

How sure are you it is only happening after the upgrade?

In reply to: Windows 10 lagging

Are you sure this wasn't happening before? Can you send a screenshot?

My friends always have issues with crashing computers. It's because they keep downloading viruses when they are looking for porn.. just sayin'

How old is your computer? If your computer ran Windows 8 fine, 10 should work ok.
