Hi guys, jux need a little help here again... My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1545 and it's going soooooooooooooo slow. A little info about it: First of all the screen is broken I think, because when I turn on my computer I have to tap the screen in order for it to work [meaning to see the pictures] otherwise it's jux a blackish/gray/white screen. Second, jux bought a new charger and battery for the computer. So that's all that is new with the computer, so I don't know why it's so slow. I rebooted to factory image already, and some stuff never got installed back to the computer. I rebooted it to factory image like 5 times now, but it's so still slow. I even tried everything from cleaning up all my stuff on there [which I have nothing and it's still slow] deleted some programs, cleaned it, defragment it, [everything you could possibly do to make it go faster, but it won't go faster all all. Still slow and freezes a lot [well basically all the time]
It's so slow, that I always have to restart it, and it always freezes to the point where I have to restart it too. Do you guys think it's because of my screen? Or do you suggest me to get a new harddrive?! What will make my computer go faster?! Thank you so much!!!
Thank you Royan, I ran the diagnostics and this is the error code
Error Code 0146
Msg: Error code 2000-0146
Msg: Hard Drive 0 - Self-test log contains previous error(s)

I searched around this community about this code and stuff and some suggested that if you had this error code you should get a new hard drive, but what do you suggest I do?
Thanks so much.
Um, does anyone know where I can buy a cheap good hard drive? I'm a college student, so I jux want a hard drive that's good, but cheap? And do you know what kind I should get? My computer is Dell Inspiron 1545. Thanks so much for the help.
No not used but jux a good hard drive that doest cost me like hundreds of dollars. Like somewhere they sell good new not that expensive hard drives. (if that made sense)
I received the following 2 errors.
LCD Cable Not Detected 2000-0413
Hard Drive 0 - 2000-0146
I see your response to the hard drive error but what should I do about the LCD cable error.
