I had a dualboot xubuntu/windows 7 running. Yesterday my Laptop suddenly got very slow (tried both OS, both very slow in opening applications, booting up and loading web pages).
I run the memory test which one can choose in the GRUB Menu, which said nothing wrong.
I then reinstalled Xubuntu 14.04 onto the whole drive and erased the old installations. But still Xubuntu takes ages to boot, start applications,load webpages, just like a general slowdown. Also it crashes from time to time and videos stop for a few secs every 2-3 minutes.
I really appreciate any help on this!
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T410
Edit: I used the disk utility to check my hardware health as recommended in the comments. I am getting something like (translated) "Harddrive is probably going to fail soon (43° C / 109° F)"
Does that mean that replacing my hard drive would probably solve all my problems?
