Alienware M14x-R2 Extremely Slow After System Restore

I restored my M14X back to the original state following the instructions I found on Youtube ()

I have a clean install with only Chrome, Atom, iTunes installed so far. But the performance has not changed since the restore the system is incredibly slow. What can I do to check if the hardware is causing the lag? All the benchmark software packages I used say everything is ok.

Press F12 at powerup a few times to access the Dell diagnostics.  Run an extended system test.

RE: Alienware M14x-R2 Extremely Slow After System Restore

I did the deep diagnostics and everything came back ok. After the diagnostics i took the computer apart and used a can of compressed air on everything and tightened some screws. That seemed to help some, the boot is still laggy. After all the tests i'm pretty confident that the cpu and memory is ok. Is there any suggested software to benchmark my hard drive?
