Is this the original factory preinstall with all it's crapware and useless utilities interfering with Windows 7? If so consider a vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which will solve all performance problems not related to hardware.

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 establishing a Clean Boot, testing hardware, uninstalling any preinstalled crapware you don't use, checking the logs for repeat errors to google for resolution, cleaning up old files, optimizing per the Best Practices in tutorial.
