So... lately my laptop has been so slow that I'm almost starting to think to dig a grave for him. I can't even run Gmod on lowest settings possible, not even a small flash game :C Anyone have any tips to get me pc to return to it's original fast state? Specs... Manufacturer, Packard Bell Model, ENLK13BZ Processor, AMD E-350 Processor 1.60 GHz Installed memory (RAM):, 6,00 GB (5,73 GB available) System type, 64 Bit operating system Please help me :c most people I ask always say "Clean your laptop, might be dust" or "delete useless stuff and get more space" None of this really helps...

Sounds severe. I suggest to format the HD and do a fresh install of windows if you have tried anything else. If that does not help, it is hardware issues.

Do you have a GPU or are you running intergrated graphics?

I have no idea of both, but one thing I'm sure about is that when I run task manager, it always says my CPU use is around 95-100% No idea if this has anything to do with it. Oh, and if I need to buy something to fix my pc, not capable, financial problems...

I go alone with Rasti do a clean reinstall , because it sounds like your systems got virus's trojan horse, spyware, malware, and adware will kill a computer.

It doesn't seem to be particularly powerful to me. How old is this laptop?

I didn't even know Packard Bell was still in the PC business... Usually when the task manager is reporting 100% of resources is in use even when idle, it's a tell tale sign that your PC's been infected with either malware or a virus. Run a full scan of Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware while offline a few times. Be sure to reboot the machine after every scan.

They left the North American market around 2000 and primarily focus on EU and African markets. In 2008 they were bought by Acer and primarily exist as a name to this day. New Packard Bell hardware are just Acer devices with a PB logo on it.

Wait, so... I will need to reinstall my pc alone, so how does one do that with a laptop?

I've decided to format my pc completely, the only problem is that I don't have the required CD for it.... darn...
