Anyone have any ideas why it might be taking such a long time for it to start up?
And then it will randomly start lagging like hell on me.
If anything, I guess I'll bother my geek of a boyfriend again haha to fix it.
Hard to say but here's something I do about once a month and this old laptop stays fast:
Disc de-fragment (it takes awhile)
Then, I do it again except do disc clean-up (quick)
Thanks! I'll give that a try.
