My dell 610 laptop has started running slow

\015 My dell 610 laptop has started running super slow. the hard drive indicator is sometimes on steady, other times it flashes. Do I need to replace my harddrive?\015

Answers :

No
you have a few options.
1. download and install CCleaner and Defraggler run these cleaning tools to get rid of unwanted data.
2. upgrading your RAM will help.
3. Reinstall windows remembering to backup all your data first.
The flashing and steady light just indicate hard drive activity. There are many things that can cause a computer to slow down. It can be from a recently installed program causing Windows to slow down to a virus or trojan horse. It could also be the cpu fan not working causing it to overheat and slow the computer down. I would start by booting into safe mode and running your virus scanner to see if there are any viruses on the computer.
