Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv5215 Notebook ?

HP Pavilion dv5215 PC Notebook running very slow, but virus scans are clean as are spyware/adware. backed up 80 gb HD to 500 GB external HD and it took 36 hrs. everything is slow; bootup, going to apps, loading a browser and the cursor sometimes seems to have a mind of it's own. I'm just before pulling the recovery disks out and re-imaging the HD. Any ideas?


Answers :

What did you scan the system with?

I would download, install and scan with Malware Bytes just to make sure the system is clean. If there's anything on that machine MB will find it and kill it.

Post back with your results and we'll explore additional possibilities if your PC is indeed totally clean.
