It is not uncommon for a slow laptop to affect your productivity and make you frustrated when using it. Because of this, it’s crucial to find out the cause of the technical issue and get your peace of mind back.
How do you get started? To investigate your PC or laptop’s performance, let’s examine some possible causes.
There’s something wrong with your hard drive.
After 2-3 years of consistent use, hard drives wear down and must get replaced. Many signs can indicate a failing hard drive. These include your laptop frequently freezing up, making odd sounds, or giving you a blue screen of death. Investing in an SSD (solid-state drive) can extend the life of your hard drive by 8-10 years. SSDs don’t experience damage from wear and tear like hard drives.
There isn’t enough memory in your system.
For more information about RAM requirements and upgrading your system, contact 3Cs. If your laptop is old and you are running an older program, you may not have enough RAM (random access memory). RAM plays an active role when a computer accesses data from the hard drive, and more RAM means faster access. If your laptop has insufficient RAM, it may slow down or freeze. Taking action is a wise idea.
There are too many programs running on your computer
Too many background programs can slow down a computer. There is a limit to how many programs you can run at once in RAM, so if you run too many, you will eventually lose processing power. Close any programs running in the background and remove any that aren’t needed from your Task Manager.
3C’s can fix your slow laptop, so you won’t have to worry about it again, and we can also help with any other computer issue.
