Testing CPU, Memory, Motherboard, etc, on an HP Laptop
Posted on 2011-10-09
Hi everyone, I have a user who dropped their laptop and its been running very slow ever since. I re-installed Windows XP on this Laptop, but its still very slow. It took about 5 to 6 hours to re-install XP, a process that should only take 45min to and hour. When the latop boots up, the processor is just pegged (100%). If I try to open My Computer or the Control Panel it takes about 5 minutes to open. I'm looking for a free hardware diagnostic tool to test the hardware on this laptop. So far I have completely formatted the hard drive and installed XP twice on this laptop. Any assistance would be greatly appeciated. Thanks.
