    Hi! I own a 3 years old Alienware 14, Ive updated to WIndows 10 and all the drivers update available, but now after a while is running terribly SLOW. So I want to format it and start it from scratch!

    Any advice where can I get all the necesary drivers and original stuff to re install everything? I would like to keep it in Windows 10.

    I didnt find the CD that came with the computer, is that going to be a big problem?

    Thanks a lot to everyone!

    Best regards,

    Fernando

    When you are running slow, go into Task Manager and see if you have Either near 100% disk usage or 100% memory usage. Every computer I have had Windows 10 had either a memory leak, or ridiculous looping windows process that have to be disabled.
