Hi Sumni,

Thank you for writing to Dell Community Forum.

Are you able to boot into the safe mode and check if the system is still performing slow on the same applications that you normally use?

please click my DELL-username and send me a Private Message with the Dell Service Tag number and your email address along with the validation code that you get when you run the diagnostic.

RE: Inspiron 15 5559 SMART short test timed out

This is my problem, too. This computer never worked properly. I have reinstalled Windows 10 many times. I also have a very slow computer. I hardly have any software at all on there since I have had to reinstall Windows so many times. It doesn't even login in a reasonable amount of time. the SMART test for me also timed out on the hard drive.
