X1 Carbon - Super Slow - Looking for an upgrade

Q: X1 Carbon - Super Slow - Looking for an upgrade

Hey everyone, I bought an almost new second hand 2nd gen X1 carbon a few mths back. I absolutely love the laptop, been looking for something slim, sleek and powerful, but I'm having some serious performance related problems with it. I usually have a lot going on, many browser windows, excel sheets, work docs, outlook, pdfs, skype, photoshop, AVG AV, etc all running for my work simultaneously and the laptop just can't keep up. It's extremely slugish, slow and freezes constantly. My CPU, Memory and Disk is always maxed out when I check task manager (90-100%). My currently machine has 4GB ram (mistake #1) and equipped with the i5-4300U CPU (1.90GHz 2.49GHz). I'm trying to find a replacement, but I don't want to spend over 2K on a new laptop. I'm trying to find some used Gen 4s for sale. I believe a Gen 3 might also give me some issues. I found a good deal on the below: X1 - 4th Gen Intel Core i7-4600U processor. 3.3 GHz Turbo Boost -Intel HD 4400 Graphics -Windows 10 Professional 64-bit -8GB DDR3 Memory -256GB Premium SSD Storage -14.0" 1600x900p display I tried looking this up on the Lenovo site and I don't see this CPU offered on the 4th gen. Is this a false advertisement ad or is it an actual Gen 4? Any suggestions on the above, or the Gen 3s? Is their any other Lenovos which are also slim and powerful which can handle my workload and is suggested? Thanks!Dan

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi everyone!

I have Toshiba Satellite P50t-b-113 laptop which I have recently upgraded from W8.1 to W10. Ever since the upgrade it's running extremely slow. It takes about 3-4 minutes to boot up (to show desktop) and than another 1-2 minutes to start all the programs. When I'm starting chrome for the first time I have to wait around 1 minute for it to start. Never had that issue before... It started when I upgraded to Windows 10. Does it mean that my laptop isn't good enough for W10?

I live in South Korea. The internet here is unbelievably fast. I've done 3 speed tests tonight, and the download speed averages between 20-40mbps, upload speed between 40-75mbps. However, when I try to watch streaming videos online, it's ridiculously slow. And it's not just one site. It seems to be all of them. Youtube, Comedy Central, BBC, and MSNBC have all been really slow. I notice it the most around 10:00-11:00pm here (only because that's when I come home from work), which is right at the same time most Americans are starting to go to work. Is it possible that the United States 9-5 workforce uses up so much bandwidth on their morning rounds through the internet that it could devastate my access to streaming video here?

A brief synopsis: The majority of videos I try loading require an obscenely long buffer time (upwards of 20 minutes for a 2 minute video). Not always, but usually. However, oftentimes YouTube will only buffer the first 20% or so of the video. So after I play it for a little bit, it inevitably catches up with the buffer and I have to wait again. Even video quality as low as 240p still sometimes takes an awfully long time to load.

Does anybody have any theories? I was able to watch the presidential debate earlier today live just fine (10am here, 7pm Denver time). Am I just trying to play videos at peak bandwidth times? Are there any ways around this? Could there be another explanation? This has been a rather consistent problem since I got i... Read more

A:Super fast connection, super slow video streaming

Americans use the Internet non-stop round the clock, so that's not the probable reason. I think your ISP is throttling your speed for videos sites. You should contact your ISP and complain.

Just recently got rid of spyware from this computer. It was running just fine. I downloaded spyware guard, snoopfree, & zone alarm on my system. Didn't seem to have any problems. I went out of town on Saturday and when I tried to use my computer on Sunday, it acted like it had crashed. I reset my monitor, first and a pop up floated on the screen that had something like no connection found. Then I rebooted my computer without any problems. No sign of the pop up that was floating around before. However, my internet connection browsers (IE & Mozilla) & Outlook Express have been extremely slow, sometimes taking over 5 minutes to load webpages. My email has sometimes stalled and had to start over again and I get 4 or 5 of the same email.
I uninstalled spyware guard, snoopfree, & zone alarm, hoping they were the cause of my slow internet connection. NO such luck. I called my service provider (cable connection) and they report there have been no problems with the connection in my area.
I am ready to pull my hair out..... I hope someone might be able to help me.

We recently got 100Mb fibre optic broadband from Virgin Media, but it's been 2 days now and various speedtests report only 2-3Mbps. Other computers around the house get around 20Mbps (none have 100Mbps).

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron N5110, so it's not old, and I run both Linux and Windows 7 (dual boot) - neither OS gets more than 2-3Mbps. I've also tried moving to various spots around the house, to no avail.

I also tried downloading a large torrent (legal) with thousands of seeders to see how fast it would download, and it stuck at around 1Mbps, never any faster.

Why is this? If we're paying for 100Mbps, surely I should expect more than 3Mbps? Other computers on the same network get 10 times this so the issue is with my laptop?

Thankyou for sorting out my Desk top. (From which I am writing this.)

Now, my office laptop has gone on strike. It is an HP Pavillion XP. I have already downloaded HihackThis and the Analyzer, to C:\ HJT, but I am not sure how to disable the 'system restore' to begin the log.

It was going slow before I took a short break, and yesterday, having taken an age to start up, it then kept sticking. At one point I timed it taking 3 mins to open the menu from 'Start' and then another 7 mins to open the 'Programme' menu!

I did an NAV Update- 3 times -as it would not install after downloading. So, I followed the Symantec site advice and downloaded the Intelligent Updater direct. Then I ran LiveUpdate again. I assumed the virus updates would be complete, but they ALL updated again. But, this time successfully. Then I did a scan, but all was OK. I noticed, however, that the laptop was working much better after this action, at least it IS working.

Recently, (before this) after failing to download SP2 on Dial-Up, the hard drive crashed. I took it to a 'PCDoctor' had the disk backed up, and they re-installed from the CD QuickRestore System Recovery, before re-installing from the backup copy. (In fact, I had to return it to be re-done as they had obviously used their own CD not my original one.)

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point.

If you have a fast internet connection (broadband), run an online virus scan at TrendMicro http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/ente...all_launch.php. Just follow the instructions on the site to run the online scan. If any viruses/trojans are detected, try to delete or clean them in that site. Otherwise, make sure your antivirus program has the latest definitions and run a full system scan.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Also go here to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

OS: Vista is infamous for its constant annoyance to the user. This is somewhat unlikely, but it could be Vista slowing you down. I recommend upgrading to Win7 regardless.

Processor: The processor seems alright, so you're not having troubles there.

RAM: You may want to consider a RAM upgrade, as many applications (including games) do tend to stick around in memory until a restart. I'd have to say the lack of RAM is your issue. It shouldn't take much more, maybe another 1GB-2GB should fix it up.

Graphics: Nice graphics card, by the way. Beats mine ._.
AntiVirus: Well, the fact that you're careful on the Internet does NOT protect you from viruses. Not at all. I strongly recommend installing Avast! Also, I recommend installing MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and give your computer a nice scan with both of them.

Your log shows that you're using IObit Advanced SystemCare 4, so it's very possible that its use has damaged the Windows operating system and broken some of your programs.

If you've been using any other cleaner/booster/optimizer/tuneup type programs, that increases the risk even more of that occurring.

Hello smart folks,

My Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop used to boot up in under a minute. Now, it takes several minutes and any time I run a program it takes a long time for them to boot up. And, heck, I see delays in programs while they're in use.

I just upgraded from 512MB to 2 GB of RAM hoping that would help. It didn't.

I've followed your steps and I think my computer is a lot safer now. Thank you.

I run Norton antivirus.

I feel like the biggest contributor to my laptop's slowness is Enterprise Office 2007. Some little searching magnifying glass seems to always be on and my computer's hard drive seems to grind a lot even when the computer should be sitting there idle.

If I open a Microsoft Office 2007 program like Word, Excel, or Outlook, they open REALLY slowly.

Also, can you please recommend a good registry scrubber? I like freeware, but I'll buy it if I must. That RegCure program seems like a scam. Below is my HiJack This log. I've also included the start up log below it since my start up is so slow.

I've had this Dell Dimension 5100 for almost a year now, and everything has been flawless until recently. Now when I turn it on, it takes a long time to stop loading everything - it sits at the "Welcome" screen for 3x as long as before, then when the desktop shows up, it's only the wallpaper. Eventually the icons appear. After that it still takes quite a bit longer than earlier for the hard drive to settle down. Also, if I use standby, my computer becomes slower and less responsive (especially while surfing), eventually getting to the point where I just have to restart it. Sometimes it won't even turn off unless I hold the button down for 5 seconds. I have clicked on the "Turn Off" icon and left the house for work, only to return to the "Windows is saving your settings..." screen 9 hours later. Spyware/virus/HiJack scans produce nothing of significance. I have run WindowBlinds for months as well, with no issues until the same time recently when "the memory cannot be read..." errors started popping up. Re-install did nothing, so I no longer run it, and the errors are now gone. I'm at my wit's end. Any suggestions? Thanks a bunch...

A:super-slow startup, slow glitchy comp

Well when you have windowsblinds using it to make you a desktop that uses up quite a bit of memory and makes your computer take a while to start up. Also you might have quite a bit of stuff in your start up. To check this click start run and type in msconfig and uncheck everything you don't need in start up. If you want to make it easier you can get a tuneup utilities trial and use the start up manager and delete any and all start up entries you don't need as well as restore them if you need them later. Also you might need to run the registry cleaner that comes with the trial of tuneup utilities. It would be easier to install it and just click on the 1 click maintenace on the desktop if you installed it and checked the option to put it on your desktop. Here is the link to it: http://www.tune-up.com/download/tu2006/ all you have to do is enter you email address and click the button and it will download. If you need any further help just reply.

My problem started when Microsoft Security Essential couldn't finish a complete scan on my computer. It would stop in the same file every time. I used some other programs like Malwarebytes and Hijackthis to see if there was anything wrong with the computer but nothing came on. (I also scanned the file individually with MSE and it scanned it just fine).
I decided to uninstall MSE and get AVG antivirus instead. AVG does scan my computer completely (with good results) but it takes foreeeever. I think the slowness started before I uninstalled MSE, so really MSE might be completely unrelated to everything. I'm not completely sure about that, though. The biggest problem about this is that I know nothing about computers.
This computer was a gift and the main thing I use it for is for picture editing and surfing the web, which I think is a bad idea because I don't think this computer has what's needed for such spacious activities. I'm not sure, though. Like I said, the world of computers is really far away from the world I live in): I really need your help, everyone!

Hi, Would like to know if the X1 Carbon 5th Gen (with i7 7th Gen) Ram can be upgraded by Lenovo Service Centres to 16GB. If Yes, what is the cost to upgrade? PS: It was rather disappointing that our sell only said there was an 8GB model.

Hi, i am about to buy a Carbon X1 Gen 4, but since the 512 GB PCIe-NVMe takes 4 weeks to get shipped (and it is a little cheaper ) i was thinking of going for the 128 or 192 gb SATA3, buying the big drive separately and doing the upgrade by myself.  Is this in general possible, to upgrade from sata3 to PCIe-NVMe, or do you have to go for PCIe right from the start? if this is possible, is one of the following SSD compatible? and which one is to recommend?http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-950-512GB-PCIe-NVMe/dp/B01639694M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1459726399&sr...http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Digital-Predator-SHPM2280P2H-480G/dp/B00V01C6M8/ref=sr_1_3?s=pc&ie=UT... I know, there is a chance that this question has already been answered here in the forum, but I now spent quite some time and I only found the question answered for the third gen... Best and thanks a lot!S

My X1 carbon came with a 128GB SSD M.2 Sata. I ordered a 512GB Samsung NVMe 960 Evo M.2, but didn't realize there is no NVMe->USB adaptor available on the market. Aftering searching the web and trying a few methods, my current plan is to use a M.2 Sata->USB adaptor to migrate the system. Basically I plan to install NMVE 960 Evo in my X1 carbon (that's the only port supporting NVMe), and connect original Sata M.2 SSD to the computer through USB adapter, then boot from USB and migrate the whole Sata SSD to Evo 960 with Samsung migration tool. However, I can't boot from my original Sata M.2 SSD through USB. I can read the SSD through USB on another computer, so the adaptor works. I tried to disable  security boot, but didn't help. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if my plan will work and what I did wrong. Thanks a  lot!

I just purchased a new X1 Carbon with a 512Gb PCIe-NVMe SSD.  I failed to follow my general rule of getting as much memory and disk as possible.  So, I'd like to upgrade this SSD but have three questions: 1)  What actual part do I have to order from Lenovo,2)  How do I install it, and3)  How do I copy the physical 512Gb SSD to the new 1Tb SSD, so I still have the Lenovo O/S and everything else I've installed on it? I have partitioned my SSD so there is: 1 - 260Mb of a simple EFI System partition1 - 1000Mb of a Recovery partition1 - 84Gb of a Windows 10 partition1 - 391Gb of an additional partition (defined as D:\) Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks,

One thing you could try is to upgrade your RAM. 256 is way too low. Minimum should be around 512 and recommended is at least 1 gig. The other thing is that you computer could be infected.

I truly need help and would be highly thankful of the one who will solve my problem.

Firstly, please note that an antivirus program such as AVG does not protect you from ALL the nasties out there.

I recommend you do a system cleanup using CCleaner, followed by chkdsk and a defragment.

Then I recommend you scan your PC for adware /malware using Spybot SD and Lavasoft Adaware 2007.

Hi. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium. My IE version is 8.0.7600.16385. It's been working well until last night. Now suddenly, when I'm trying to go into large websites, everything takes halfway to forever to load.

I even restored to any earlier point. Still the same problem. (By the way, I had difficulty restoring. I kept getting error messages. In the end I uninstalled Kaspersky, restored to an earlier point, reinstalled Kaspersky.)

Any suggestions?

Hi Robert, loading pages may be due to your ISP's speed at any given time. Do you have another browser to test with?
Have a look at Intenet Speed tests and see what your results are.

EDIT: Also upgrading to IE9 has been reported by a few people to give faster surfing too. It should be showing in your Windows Updates now.

A:PC has got super slow...

It doesn't appear that you have any overheating or other eviidence of hardware problems.
 
Most of the uncommon errors cite McAfee and your USB3 driver.  I would (temporarily) uninstall ALL of the McAfee software and uninstall/reinstall the USB3 driver...and see how the system runs.  If the slowness disappears, great.  If not, we will try another route.
 
Java should either be removed totatlly...or updated.  When updating, all old versions should also be removed manually, as suggested at the Java website.
 
There's always the possibility of malware...we don't assess that in this forum...forget the possibility, for the moment unless you have reason to suspect infection.

It's not a memory issue, got several gb on my ssd and several hundred on my HDD. it's not a RAM issue either, atleast i think it's not, should have more than enough with 16gb. I've checked for malware and viruses, so now i'm kind of lost, not sure if i should look for a hardware or software problem. only driver that's not up todate is my geforce game ready driver, and whenever i try to install it, it just get's stuck on preparing to install.

On the top of the main screen click Update.
Then click on Start Update. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
I also recommend changing the "Update interval" to something more reasonable like 12 hours.
If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update Ewido
When you have finished updating, EXIT Ewido.

CWShredder- Run CWShredder and click on Fix (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you). If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:Restart your computer

So suddenly all the programs I was running crashed with the "has stopped working" popup. Then, since closing the programs wasn't working, I did Ctrl alt del. Black screen and loaded for 20 minutes. Basicly, it takes an unwaitable amount of time to open a single program, right click something, or use commands. I thought it was overheating, but I cleaned it up with a vacume and blower (didn't put thermal paste) and it was still the same. Temperature seemed normal anyways. My hard drive is a bit filled, but not to the top. More like 70% through. Any answers on how to fix?
 

A:Super Slow Everything

You used a vacuum cleaner to clear out the dust?? FYI, a vacuum cleaner IS NOT recommend as it CREATES static electricity which can damage computer hardware.

What do you mean by "didn't put thermal paste"? Did you r&r the Heatsink/fan and not reapply fresh thermal compound?

What exactly is the issue you are having?

Dell running XP, 5 to 10 min to start up or shut down. 2 to 3 min to open applications. svchost.exe error on shutdown and 3 others that flash to fast to read. Occasional "virtual mem expanded" message. It's a work machine w/ only 256 meg ram. I suspect some hardware problems but need second opinion on this log. Thanks.

Hi,
I have a Windows Vista Home Premium machine acting as a VPN server. I have a laptop at my friends house also running Windows Vista Home Premium. On the Vista client, under the networking tab, I unchecked Use default gateway on remote network for both ipv6 and ipv4. The VPN works super fine and super fast. But, when I have the same settings on my Windows 7 Pro laptop, it runs fast at first but then runs like it is dial up. Sometimes, it runs so slow that it doesn't even connect to the shared files and folders. Please help!

A:VPN super Slow

i have the same problem with my vpn server
