How come my laptop is very slow after dropping it?by som3rand0mguy on March 21, 2011
Q: My little brother dropped my Hp laptop from about 2 feet and now theres some problems. At first it would turn on and show the HP sign and then go on to get stuck on the Microsoft loading screen.
I restarted it and pressed f8 and did a system repair. It took over an hour to complete but it did load and I was able to access my account. I did notice that a few files in my games were corrupted and errors would occur when trying to start programs. It was also extremely slow at loading things it did super fast before.
I turned it off and back on and now everything loads (very very slowly) up to the select a user page and when I choose my account and type the password it will just say welcome as if it was loading, but it never goes to the dashboard it just keeps on loading. I have let it load for over an hour and it just doesn’t go anywhere. This is windows Vista by the way.
If I do Another system repair I can get into my account but I don’t want to have to do an hour long boot up every time I log in and everything is really slow.
I doubt I will pay for any repairs that need to be done because it wasn’t that great anyways, but I would like to have it still.
Thanks for the help
