Now it is worry that the fans run fast and the machine is slow it indicates to me at least something wrong with some hardware somewhere. The fan running loud and fast almost always due to high temps on the CPU/ graphics chip.

The slowness could be due to anything really from way too many processes running a the the same time to too many programs being loaded up on power up to an OS that is out of whack.

The other thing that occurred to me too is you say the machine came from a school and I am left wondering if it was an Enterprise OS??
It actually came from staples (brand new) with 10 education pre-installed...10 is just a heavy OS compared to 7 imo.

Ok not sure what education was and personally I resisted 10 for a long time and now have it on three of my machines and I did find it faster than 7 plus I modified all my desktops to get rid of the apps - an unnecessary feature in my view.

Now I have Googled all sorts of places including the annoying HP support sites and I think it comes back to what georgek linked re that probably the machine is not back compatible to 7.

I suppose one thing you could do is contact HP and ask. Just out of interest I am assuming you bought a new 7 OEM? hopefully the Pro version??
