I bought the dell inspiron N5110 (in case this information is kind of helpful) about a year ago. My laptop is running very slowly; it takes more than 15 minutes to load the auto-start applications (skype, dell support center, MSN, dropbox). I'm wondering whether I just have to restore the default settings (format, no?) or my hardware is damaged.

I need to know if there is a way to find out if my hardware is damaged. In case it's not, I'd like you to teach me how I proceed with the format (there is no data I want to save). For your information, it came along with the CD.

Before formatting, I suggest you post logs in the spyware help section. Read and follow instructions here:

If your computer is clean, the helper can also advise on how to speed up your computer.
