why his system is so slow after cloning from a HDD to an SSD on a lenovo, Dell, HP notebook.

Wd Blue SATA III SSD: For 480GB was installed 3wks ago by a PC repair shop here in Laptop on an old Hp that copied my hard drive a WD BLUE 500GB from another laptop and that Microsoft driver from 2006? This SSD is sooooo slow…..called them said it should be really fast.

Before I bring it back, any feedback as to why so slow?

You mentioned in the opening words this drive was copied from a WD Blue HDD. While this cloning process will likely work its always best to fresh install Windows on an SSD in order to get the correct alignment for the drive.

Second, the “old” Hp. How old is this HP PC? I would make sure it at least a 2nd generation Core processor and that it has SATA 3 before putting an SSD in it.

It may not be the fault of the SSD and more the interface if the notebook is too old.
