Windows 7: Acer goes slower after factory reset!!! :O

Acer goes slower after factory reset!!! :O

Hello! I have a problem with my computer. It started when I had my factory reset (eRecoverty Management) because the computer constantly crashed when it had been in hibernation. But even after factory reset, I noticed that the computer began to go slower, the program stopped responding and more often and to my great astonishment as it crashed again after being in sleep mode... I received the hint that I could download an error fix software (FileCure) but then I realized it was an unregistered version of the software so I uninstalled it. Later when I started the computer it happened something strange ... I came directly to Inlogg after windows starting though I have no password on my computer! It was weird... I also found that startup was slower than usual. When I came in to the computer it stood that there was something wrong with the installation of FileCure so I decided to do a system restore, which would remove FileCure. This process took more than 40 minutes. Before the process was complete, my dad shuted down the computer. -.-"

Later when I started the computer I could not get into windows so I had to factory restore my computer with the recovery CDs but now the computer goes slower.

What should I do? What could be the problem? Is there any way to get the computer to go faster but consume more electricity?

There shouldn't be any reason for a machine with those specifications to be running slow by any means. If it's running slow there are a few things that could be causing it.

First, if you restored using the factory recovery disks, it most likely installed all of the junk that OEM's have a horrible habit of bloating your machine with. Remove any software that is unnecessary. Second, check to make sure your hardware is functioning properly. If there is an issue with a piece of your hardware, it could absolutely cause crashing.

Do you have all of the correct and up to date drivers for your hardware? Including BIOS updates? Check the Acer website for the latest drivers. I'm sure others will chime in with other ideas, but the above is a good place to start

I have an acer desktop with similar specs (even have the same non acer monitor!). Running Win 7 64 bit.
I had to do a factory restore for other reasons. I used eRecovery following the directions - it used its hard disk recovery partition and didn't require my recovery disks. Give it planty of time. I ended up with a system exactly the same as when I first turned the machine on. Some minor account setup info asked for - just follow instructions.

Speed ok. Demanding software like Photoshop elements 8 runs quickly. Experience indices same as before:
Processor 7.2
Memory 7.2
Graphics 4.9
Gaming graphics 6.2
Primary hard disk 5.9
(Base 4.9)

I do NOT use sleep or hibernation modes.
If all else fails go back to ACER - good luck with that.

I may be wrong on this one but can't you call Microsoft and request a Windows 7 DVD? I tried to clean all the bloatware off this Toshiba but I decided I would just rather have a clean install. I used a buddies copy and just used the product key off the laptop. I had to call Microsoft for the automated activation but it worked.

Unnecessary bloatware should be easy to delete. I suggest you keep the ACER utilities.

Microsoft policy in my part of the world is that if the OS was supplied by an OEM (ie. ACER in this case) support is the OEM's responsibility.

It is easy to delete but it's nice to have a fresh start and knowing you have a nice, clean registry.

@Rulfinator have you run a diagnostic on your disk drives? If you have a bad drive it can slow things down because it's taking multiple retries to read/write the data to/from the disk.

Perhaps also make sure that the factory reset didn't enable some power saving options, my laptop went really slow after I used factory reset. But that was because it had enabled powersave mode

I bought a new Acer last year, deleted the tens of gigs of rubbish on it and it crashed. Reinstalled from the image disks I'd made, deletd rubbish, same thing again.
Eventually I decided to just keep the rubbish, I had no choice.
Later however I sent my Acer back to Comet as in my opinion, for teh spec, it was about on par in performance terms as my 4 year old Inspiron.
I ended up with a bill from Acer for 130 as they said there was nothing wrong with the machine. Comnet said either pay or you don't get your laptop, I had no choice but to pay.
My advice therefore, is steer very well clear of Acer.
Hope that helps.
