HP Compaq Presario CQ56 Running Slow – Fixed
Very often when you notice severe slow down in your computer is to check your hard drive for bad sectors. Try booting (either with CD/DVD or USB) from a programme called “Hard Drive Regenerator” to test for these bad sectors.
If you are lucky HDD Regenerator will repair the bad sectors and you will be able to recover your data.
We recommend you change the hard drive even though the bad sectors have been repaired as more often than not the bad sectors will return.
A new hard drive along with a re-install of Windows will be required.
