-My laptop takes several seconds to boot up, especially when its returning from sleep or hibernation
-It freezes periodically, and for several seconds. It runs much slower when I have more than 3 programs running.
-It's especially slow when loading multiple pages when I'm on the internet, especially when I have multiple tabs open at once. Google Chrome is my preferred browser.
-I had 3 BSOD's pop up 2 days after my computer was fixed, while I was downloading iTunes and Skype. It said something along the lines of "DRIVER IRQL...MORE OR LESS EQUAL"
I never really had these issues before I got my new hard drive. I'm concerned because I just got a new harddrive and reinstalled Windows 7, so I don't think I should be encountering problems like this so soon. Is there a way to fix my performance?
