I have a acer aspire 4736z i laptop. And I've been using it 2 years now. Now it suddenly became very slow. It takes 5 minutes from turning on to the log on screen. It takes 3 minutes to show the desktop It takes 10 minutes for all the information to show up. But once it starts then it works fine. I did a fresh install of windows 7.and as per your advise removed unnecessary programs.Kindly help
Thank you

This actually confuses me.
The only thing i can think of is Dust or a problem with the hard disk.

Does the laptop feel hot in any way? Do you hear the fan? If so, open the case up and look for dust on the motherboard and in the system fan.

Do you hear any clicking? Do you hear a humming? If so the hard disk MAY need replacing.

Also, see how much ram is in there, check if the amount is compatible with windows 7. what you need is:
If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

These may or may not work, if it doesn't work i recommend you take it to a technician and have them troubleshoot it. But i hope that I have been of help, and most importantly: Best of luck!!!
