I recieved my Acer Nitro 5 AN515-42, with Ryzen 5 2500u and RX 560 today and it is the slowest laptop possible.
Multitasking is impossible, no two operations are working together.. It is hanging too bad that even task manager is not opening. Everything from opening a program to installing a game is too slow. Even Firefox is not working properly.
Then my external HDD is mostly not being recognized by the 3.0 USB port, its working fine with 2.0 but since its WD my passport with 3.0 jack, its working like 5 out of 15 times and giving copying speeds of 8-15 mbps.
A game like Far cry 3 is taking 25 minutes to install and still not working. I also tried Crysis warhead but it was rejected by Norton.
I tried updating windows, bios (which was already 1.08), Raedon settings( to high performance).. Still everything is same.
Only setting changes I have made in windows is changing the WiFi connection to metered and disabling background apps.
My firmware version is 17.42.306 (something like this)
Please help.. Should I get it replaced?
Its almost 5 am here, and I'm trying since 9 pm last night so please ignore any grammatical mistakes.
