Hello everyone, I noticed for about a week that when I log on to Windows, it takes what seems to be 3-5 minutes to respond to start menu pop up and applications (Icons) on Desktop. I tried the following solutions with no success: Kaspersky Anti-Virus Scan (No viruses Found) Disk Clean Up Disk Defragmenter Local (C Hard Drive Scan For Error or Bad Sectors, Registry Cleaner/Repair System Memory Test Scan Unchecking Start Up Programs Uninstalling Programs That I don't use regularly I'm still having to wait for a brief moment or moments before I am able to click on Start Menu or Application Icons. In the meantime of waiting, it freezes up and doesn't respond normally. I also have small bright white blotches or (marks) on my right upper LCD Screen. I think it could be dead pixels, but I'm not sure. What do you think it could be and can it be fixed? I've come to the conclusion that I might have to get LCD screen replaced. I have a Hewlett Packard g7 Notebook PC; bought 04/03/2012 Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit Service Pack 1 AMD A6-3420M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 1.50 GHz Quad Core Processor I have a 500 GB Local (C Hard Drive (441 GB usable) I have 295 GB out of 441 GB on Local (C Hard Drive I have 6.00 GB System Memory Ram (5.48 Usable) What could be causing the slow response time and can it be fixed somehow? Thank you for any advice and suggestions you may provide.
