Can you press CTRL + ALT + DEL and look at the Task Manager, then see if there is any process with a lot of CPU usage.
Also do you know how much Free Space there is on your system ?
Thank You -

Manufacturer and model number
Amount of memory
Hard drive size and how much free space it has
When did this start happening?

More info on the Advanced Boot Options menu here: Advanced startup options (including safe mode).
Use msconfig to determine what is causing the problem
These are good tutorials on using msconfig in XP, Vista or Windows 7:
How to use msconfig in Windows XP
How to use msconfig in Windows Vista
How to use msconfig in Windows 7
Press the Windows key and R to open the Run dialog. Type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.
If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.
Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.
Enable everything else you disabled.
In your case it may be several things that are causing the problem. You need to be patient and walk through them and see which ones are causing the performance problem.
Also, using msconfig, you are not removing anything, just stopping it from starting when you boot your laptop.
