the laptop i got from my friend is very slow. from the boot until i click the start button.
he is using windows 7, laptop model acer 4810TZ
i tried to detect any virus onboard. i have run MBAM. but sadly his laptop is clean. i suspect that there is a hardware problem. i ran the chkdsk from command prompt.
it shows like this
The type of the file system is NFTS.
Volume label is ACER
WARNING! F parameter not specified.

the chkdsk stopped at 7 percent.
1. is there any problem with the laptop?
2. if i format the hard disk with a clean install of windows, should it be okay?
3. the laptop is also overheating. is this also indicates the processor is working extreamly hard too?
