Constant cleaning and defragging daily w/ that stuff is a waste of time. I personally use Auslogics BoostSpeed and CCleaner, but only periodically. Since you're reported working w/ a fresh Windows install and the PC is still running poorly:

  • What CPU do you have ? Certain 64-bit CPUs don't improve performance over their 32-bit counterparts. Case in point, the 64-bit Intel Celeron is no superstar.
  • Perform a hard drive diagnostic. Download the diagnostic from the mfr's website and try that.

This is a start twds eventually solving this. Good luck...

That can be a problem with the performance. Also, some CPUs get throttled down [slowed] when on battery power only so as to conserve that charge, sometimes does not revert to it full speed when using commercial power.

Some devices communicate to Windows when things are not right, your card may be one of those. Don't know as there's any way to disable a non-functioning fan.

Well, Win7 is over 4 years old so maybe it's time. My wife's 4-year old Notebook just died, the video has gone to flickering so I changed it, no help. An external monitor works but she doesn't want to do that.

To repeat: Case in point, the 64-bit Intel Celeron is no superstar. You have a slow chip to begin with. Sorry. You also didn't show the mfr's name of the hard drive. That's found in the Device Manager or you can probably display it under the Storage item under your Auslogics pgm. Once you know the name of the hard drive mfr, you can GOOGLE it, and get a diagnostic from their site. But my sister's 64-bit Celeron Compaq desktop seemed satisfactory (speed-wise) under XP (w/ 2GB of RAM), but seemed quite a bit slower after I "upgraded" it Windows 7 x64. When she gave the PC to her grand kids, I'd installed Ubuntu on it as an experiment. A significant improvement (speed-wise) over Windows 7. That may not be an option for you, but check the hdrive just in case...

The big difference between Pentium CPUs and Celeron CPUs is the amount of L2/L3 cache on the chip, quite a bit less on the Celeron. AMD had a similar difference between Duron/Sempron CPUs and their Athlon CPUs. The L2/L3 cache is very expensive memory and the cost was/is less for the Celeron and Duron/Sempron CPUs, makes for a less expensive machine that can still do the same things as the others except for processor-intensive things like large spreadsheets, large databases, video editing, etc.
