Windows 7: laptop is being really slow after new hard drive, how to diagnose it?

laptop is being really slow after new hard drive, how to diagnose it?

So one of my friend's laptop had been acting slow, and I took a look at it and I cleard out some applications but it was still going bad. it turns out the hard drive had to be replaced, so he sent it in under warranty. I reinstalled Norton 360 and Office for him, and helped him reinstall some of his games.

Then i found out it was acting slow again, and was practically unusable for gaming!

He's coming down this weekend, and I plan to take another hack at it. But I don't know what the cause would be. it's a new hard drive with a new factory image. I suspect that the new hard drive might be faulty, but I don't know how to test it. I do have some spare hard drives around that I could install, but I'd like kto know what testing processes or programs I can use to better diagnose the problem.

Any ideas? thanks.
