Pc not running like usual

So I build my pc a couple years ago and it recently started running really slow when I do anything I listed some of my specs and I need help thanks.image.png.ca0110fc8b54a11924f48875c97441e1.png

I mean, your CPU is kinda getting dated now, as hardware ages, it gets slower as it is less optimised for the tasks you are performing. Doing a fresh install of windows might help, that's what I would do first after looking through task manager to see if something is eating up system resources.

honestly usually it's hdd / ssd / mobo / psu... if a pc randomly starts getting slower. 

 

while I generally really don't recommend it, run a couple of userbenchmark tests and post results here... wouldn't surprise me if storage devices "perform bad"  which is a good sign there's something wrong.

Most of the time is windows getting messed up.  Format and start clean.

would re installing get rid of all my data?

download userbenchmark and run it. 

do it a couple of times to get conclusive results. then post the results here.

of course it would and it's not guaranteed to fix anything so should be a last resort kind of thing.

well... I need to see the whole test not just half of it... just post a link I guess.

But that doesn't look good... 

 

still need to see what it says about each component obviously.

Ok, well, it's hard to say but I still suspect the SSD, and possibly the HDD too tbh... 

 

 

Get a cheap crucial mx500, remove both drives and install windows on the mx500... it's a bit of a shot in the dark but chances are that fixes your issues... I doubt every component in your pc is bad, just the hard drives dragging it down... 

 

What happens if you run the test more often, is it always a similar result or does it change sometimes? 

 

just curious... otherwise seriously try with a good hard drive (mx500 is *very* good and pretty cheap)

it has the same result every time and is there a way I can transfer my data to the mx500 if I do get it because I use a lot of storage

yeah you can clone or copy your stuff - but you should really try with a fresh install on the new hard drive first, just remove your old drives, store them somewhere safe, your data will still be there if you need it later.
