Ok, so here is what has gone down so far:
I had Windows Home Premium x64, and decided that I wanted to go back to factory settings. I used Dell Datasafe to revert to factory settings but it froze (I let it sit for 24 hours just to make sure) and I had to turn it off. It wouldn't boot up after that past the Windows animation, so I tried to install Windows Ultimate x64 over it. That worked as far as I can tell, but now it is extremely slow and all my applications say (not responding) whenever I try to use them.
If anyone knows what I can do to troubleshoot or fix this, that would just make my day.
A few things I tried already:
- Used a clean boot, still extremely slow, takes about 10 minutes just to get to the login screen
- Tried safe mode, still extremely slow, and applications still doing the same thing.
- Tried safe mode, ran slow until I deleted my system.old. It ran fast for the remaining time I was on it, but when I went back to normal startup it slowed back down. I will try safemode again to make sure that wasn't just a spurt of luck.
**I will troubleshoot and update as I go along**
Thanks in advance,
