Hello all. Looking for some help. I purchased an Macbook from Apple Oct 2009 and never had any issues at all, I then purchased myself a 27' iMac and gave the Macbook to my sister. Recently she has been saying how it is taking forever to load. About 2 weeks ago I wiped it as a new Macbook, when I turned it back on, iTunes asked if it could update the Lion software (I had already installed Lion on release on both machines) and it was fine for a few days, then it started not detecting wifi. Took it to Apple, they had to replace the Airport card which is done and every things working. I mentioned how it was taking for ever to load and they said as I only had 2GB of Ram, to buy 4GB ram to increase the speed as Lion is known to slow MacBooks down a little, so I purchased it, it came this morning and it has installed. It's taking (and yes I timed it ) 2 minutes and 34 seconds to get to simply enter my password on user log in. As mentioned previously, I have completely wiped everything off it - the only thing it has installed is Microsoft Office - it has no music/pictures/internet files anything on it. I did previously try to use the CD that was in the Macbook box to downgrade back to Leopard as I seem to have only had issues since Lion, however the disk wouldn't work. Does anyone have any suggestions at all? I don't mind if it has to be wiped again as it has nothing on it, everything has been backed up on a external hard drive. I'm just really unsure what to do Even when the password in entered, for about 5mins even trying to open 'System Preferences' takes about 30/40 seconds. If this is any help, my About This Mac Info is: Processor: 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory: 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3 I would appreciate any help at all!
