Subject: Re: [TechTalk] HP preinstalled software question
I received the computer some 2 years ago for christmas. I installed jaws as window eyes was purchased by jaws.
the computer first had windows 7 or 8 on it, not sure which one. Microsoft was offering the free upgrade to windows 10 due to them announcing that windows xp would no longer be supported.
My wife's cousin, wwho is a jack of all trades (including fixing his own computer when his wife and children install programs that cause issues on his system) upgraded the computer foor me to windows 10.
The computer is extremely slow, if I select to open notepad, the CPU starts working overtime, the internal fan is audible, and the system slows to a crawl.
The computer has 8 gigs of ram on board from the factory, and due to the fact that I am moving from windows xp and window eyes to windows 10 and jaws, I am dealing with a double learning curve. I assumed that the jaws and windows 10 just did this (slow systems down so much that I can go to the bathroom or make myself a pot of coffee while I wait for a program to open.
Not to mention that when trying to load a webpage on firefox, I can literally be waiting for 5 minutes before the page actually loads.
The computer came direct from a warehouse my wife's company has for "gift point" purchases and had not been tampered with or what not since they recieved it from HP.
I know I just need to purchase tutorials for windows 10 and jaws and just suck it up, but the money is not there and has not been due to we being one of the lower 20% in the income pbracket here in the USA.
