    Laptop functioning unusably slow after abrupt outage


    I figured its my hard drive and have been told so as to why any commands i give to my laptop it's either received with a "this program is not responding", freezes, or just loads painfully slow.

    I have ran two chkdsk operations, with the most recent stating no problems with the file system. What could it be causing my laptop to not function at a reasonable speed?

    E.g ^

    I see you're in a European time zone. Is this the laptop? It's a rather old one?

    Take the battery out when it was running? Did you drop it by any chance?

    Poorly worded. I removed the battery, incorrectly.
