I have just recently installed lubuntu on my Packard bell pc, it was working fine boot was fine performance was all good, but recently the boot time is taking more than 15 minutes which is also affecting the performance of the machine, I’ve tried restarting it several times but its still too slow, I would like a proper solution for this as I am not sure what else to do.
HDAT2 is an software for test disk. download from https://www.hdat2.com/download.html
HDAT2 select the surface tests and see the SMART information. Caution Have an option to “create bad cluster” is in an menu. Avoid that command. You need only test the surface test is in the first menus.
burn in an CD or DVD or try insert in Ventoy (allow start ISO in USB).
If all test pass OK the next step is see OS start boot log.
