I bought a HP Pavillion notebook a few months ago. Everything was going fine, but recently it takes it about 15 minutes to start up after shutting down, not to mention that there is a major lag while running any programs on it.
Also, my wireless adapter picks up signals and those that it used to connect to...it won't connect anymore. I cannot access the internet, it just tells me that IE cannot display the webpage even though it shows that I have a good connection. I've even tried using a LAN connection and it won't get the IP for it.
Here are some of the things I've already tried:
- Emptying Prefetch
- Running Ad-Aware
- Checking Task Manager and msconfig for suspicious looking programs
- Defragmenting about 10 times
- Clearing temp files
- Disabling firewall
- Checked registry
- Did system restore
I am clueless as to what's up, but if anyone has any more tips I'd be glad to hear them.
