    You could try a non-destrucitve install. First you need to create a bootable USB stick ( It needs to be over 4GB in size)

    Once you have the USB stick ready, boot your Mac whilst holding down the OPTION key, then choose "EFI BOOT" Install Lion from there. This type of installation will not remove any of your apps or data, but it is of course best policy to perform a backup first. Hope this helps, it's fixed ,any a slow Mac for me in the past!

    At this point assuming that your hardware is okay, then the only other course of action is to backup, format the HDD in your Mac and do a clean installation...If that also fails to correct the issue then I'd take it to Apple.
