You may think the laptop has a virus, that it may be infected by spyware, some other malware, or that it is simply overloaded…
In reality, the #1 reason why your laptop is slow is probably because your hard disk is dying. It’s not dead yet, but it probably will be soon. It is a lot less expensive to migrate your data today with zero data loss than it is to contact us when the drive really gives up the ghost.
If your sound is starting to sound especially choppy, then you definitely have an impending disk failure. This is not fear mongering, but a guaranteed fact.
Feel free to prove me wrong, but from my experience I know that every time my personal laptop became very slow, a quick HDD replacement fixed that problem.
Think back to the time when you bought your notebook computer. It was quick and silent. Now it is slow and loud, isn’t it? And you just typed “my laptop is slow” out of frustration into a search engine.
