    Restored laptop to factory settings and seems slow.

    I reset my pc to factory conditions using the Samsung recover tool, the pc seems slower fps wise in games for example. Was faster before i reset the pc. Model Samsung 3505VC.
    I believe it might be to do with my graphics card as it is rated only 4.9 now on windows rating and was 5.7 before.

    Was your graphics score 5.7 (2D or 3D?) right out of the box or did you check it sometime later? After the factory restore did you start to bring your Windows Updates back to current status? Any BIOS changes the first time around?

    If you uninstalled some of the factory installed bloatware the first around you may want to do it again. A lot of the preinstalled programs will be outdated so your PC may be slowed down by programs updating in the background etc.
