Hi Kate,

If your Dell PC is running slow, stops responding or takes longer than expected to respond, slow boot up or shutdown, you may be experiencing a system performance issue. Whether your PC has gradually become slower or suddenly stopped working, there could be a variety of reasons for performance related problems. Slow performance and other problems can be a result of fragmented data on the hard disk drive, external peripherals like docking stations, outdated device drivers, outdated or corrupt operating system files, disk errors, not enough memory (RAM), hardware failure, etc.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that can help resolve slow performance issue on your Dell PC, follow the steps in a sequence.

Restart your PC regularly
A simple reboot can resolve many issues almost immediately. Restarting your PC is an effective way to clear the system memory (RAM) and ensure that any errant processes and services that started is shut down.

Restarting your PC closes all the applications or software running on your PC, applications running on the taskbar and dozens of other services that may be running in the background which were started by various applications. The more things you have open and the longer you keep them running, the greater the chances your PC will slow down and eventually run out of memory (RAM). Ideally, it is a good practice to shut down the PC when not in use. However, most times it is recommended that you restart your PC at least once a week, if you use the PC a lot.

If restarting the PC does not resolve the issue, proceed to the next step.

Run a hardware diagnostic test
Running a hardware diagnostic test can help you identify hardware related problems and provide you troubleshooting steps to help resolve the issue. To determine if your Dell PC is experiencing a hardware problem, it is recommended that you first run a hardware diagnostic test on your PC. Dell offers both built-in and online diagnostics. Dell ePSA hardware diagnostic test will help check if the hardware devices are working correctly.
Running Dell Pre-boot System Assessment or enhanced Pre-boot System Assessment (Dell PSA or ePSA)
  1. Restart your Dell PC.
  2. When the Dell logo appears, press F12 key to enter One-time Boot Menu.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select Diagnostics and press Enter key on the keyboard.
  4. Follow the on-screen prompts and respond appropriately to complete the diagnostics.
  5. If the test fails, ensure to write down the error code and validation code.
Scan your PC for corrupt Windows files
If Windows operating system files are corrupt, it can cause slow performance and other issues on your PC. Microsoft Windows has built-in utilities that can help you scan your PC for corrupt operating system files and replace them from a cached version on your PC or download them through Windows Update.
Run System File Checker
  1. Restart your PC.
  2. Click Windows Start button and search for CMD or Command Prompt.
  3. Right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.
  4. Click Yes in the User Account Control window.
  5. In Command Prompt, type sfc /scannow and press Enter key on the keyboard.
  6. This will take several minutes to complete.
  7. Note: Ensure to include a space between sfc and /.
  8. Once the scan is complete, restart your PC.
System File Checker (SFC) will scan your PC for corrupt Microsoft Windows operating system files. Once the scan is complete, the results are displayed on the screen. If System File Checker (SFC) found corrupt files and replaced them, restart your PC. If System File Checker (SFC) did not find any corrupt files, try running the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool.

Uninstall or remove unused software
Uninstalling or removing software or applications that you do not use or do not need from you PC can help speed up your PC. Applications may include background processes, system services, context menu entries and other things that can slow down your PC.

Uninstall application you no longer need using Programs and Features (previously called Add/Remove Programs). Unnecessary applications occupy space on your hard disk drive.
Note: You need to be logged as user with administrator rights on your PC to uninstall or install applications.
  1. Press the Windows logo key + R on the keyboard.
  2. In the Run dialog box, type appwiz.cpl and press the Enter key.
  3. In the list, select a program and click Uninstall.
I hope this helps.
