    My friend gave me a laptop. He baought it 3-4 years ago and now lots of problem suddenly occuring.
    1. When I try to open "/" key filled password box. I think this is keyboard problem. "/" key is just above "8" number key.
    2. When I create a partition it starts to filling automatically. It has 1 TB hard disk. C drive has 250 GB of storage but second partition that started to fill automatically has 650 GB but all space is taken within few hours. Don't know what to do.
    This is even happening after deleting all partition and installing new Windows 10. Currently it has Windows 8 Single Language 64 Bit.
    3.
    Computer become very slow everytime I on it. After keeping it on for few minutes (10-15 minutes) it works normally.

    Model: Lenovo Ideapad Z500 Touch.

    Somebody please help.
    Thank You.

    For the keyboard problem connect an external keyboard and see if the problem still exists?

    Thanks everyone for helping me. :worthy:
    2nd and 3rd problem got solved by clean installing Windows 10 Home Single Language thanks for the instructions @s1ave77 and @CHEF-KOCH
    and for the 1st problem it was a hardware issue. Thanks @Enthousiast for suggesting me to use external keyboard which I did and figured that the hardware change is required.

    Also do a scan of the harddrive to check for bad cylinders

    Another activity that you must perform is to relocate the partitions, that is, to align from cmd.
    diskpart
    disklist
    List Disk
    Select disc (0,1)
    Maybe something is becoming permanent...
