    Try reinstalling you OS after backing up your data and see if that fixes it

    tell you this sir...from the day its bought...

    it take few second to load an image...comparing to 256MB old PC its very very late...and even other things also ,,its not looks that much speed...

    it cant be isnt it...just like windows laptop...it should open things fast isnt it?

    i think theres a hardware failier in it

    You could've installed something that made your mac slow, reinstalling the OS could be the solution. It could be a hardware failure, yes. Also, try bring it to the authorized dealer, I remember taking mine in and they tightened my hinge free of charge.

    Clean install. Refrain from installing dodgy software also.

    Press cmd-r when booting to boot into recovery partition, from there you'll be able to either clean install OS X or do an archive and install.

    Honestly, sounds to me like hardware failure such as a hard drive in it's last days, computers don't get slow out of nowhere.

    Sounds like the HDD failed. Hopefully your data was backed up.

    Then get an external hard drive and get on with it!

    You might be able to pull out the drive in the MBP and recover data using another computer.
