seriously slow i7 laptop - something not right
I need some advise as my laptop is running very slow and seems to be "plodding" along. My laptop is a 2nd Generation i7 (Sandy Bridge) with 8GB of DD3 RAM, 1GB Nvidia Graphics and a 750GB Hard Drive.
Loading the laptops takes a while even though the boot optimizer claims it takes 40 seconds to loads (definitely longer)
If I click an icon on the desktop there is a good 3 - 5 seconds delay before the machine responds and starts loading the program. Burning DVD's takes forever even though its an 8 speed DVD / Bluray combo drive.
My old PC was a custom built AMD X 2 4200 with 4GB DDR 2 RAM (4 years old) and that is faster than my laptop for booting, burning and general use of Windows.
I have tried reformating the machine with both the manufacturer recovery partition as well as just with a clean windows 7 however the same problem happens.
What do you suggest and what can I do to see where the bottleneck is forming and how to clear it?

Are you running the original OEM installation? Sounds to me like it could be a bad install. You've removed all the crapware right?
If you can find the time, then I highly suggest you do a clean install Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM. I do this with every new computer and have never had a problem .
EDIT: Just read that you already tried a clean install. In that case, it sounds like this could be a bigger problem than I thought.
