x230 running slowly after migration

#1 Post by Wwuoo » Wed Sep 07, 2022 4:11 pm

Hi so after an accident I purchased a new x230 and switched out the hard drive and memory with my old ones, it's now running slowly, do i need to re-install windows and all the drivers? it's the same specs.

If you want it to run faster, upgrading to SSD is a good idea.

Backup: X601 Core 2 Duo T8100
Toy: X60F Core Solo U1300

In pieces: two retired but working X61Ts

It has an SSD

Could it be lacking the same BIOS updates as the one before?

When in doubt, monitor the CPU speed (check if it's somehow limited to low speeds) and temperatures (if it's overheating to the extent that the CPU is forced to throttle).
