Hi there,

I have a laptop that has real issues accessing the C: Drive in that when you try to access a folder within it, it takes an age to load up the contents. It is a brand new laptop and as a test, I replaced the disk with another one but the same issue occurs. The funny thing is, this was bought at the same time as another identical laptop but the other one has had no issues. Could it be a general hardware fault with the laptop?
