tips to improve the performance of your laptop

Having a slow laptop is an ordeal in itself, and often interferes with our work productivity, in this article the admin will discuss the continuation of the previous article on how to fix a slow laptop.

3. Install Antivirus

This may have been a classic reason why our laptops are slow. Viruses can damage the laptop system which makes it slow.

Make sure you install the best Antivirus for your laptop. Especially if you are using Windows 7 and below which is no longer supported by Microsoft. The chances of getting the virus will be even greater.

If you don't want to bother thinking about viruses, you can replace your Windows with Linux. Linux is guaranteed safe from Viruses.

4. Install the Cleaner and Booster Application

The Cleaner application will clean the disk from the trash that can cause a slow laptop. And Booster will maximize your laptop's performance by limiting running background programs. Generally, in one application, there are already both, Cleaner and Booster.

5. Customize Applications to Specifications

Each software has been designed to run on top of certain hardware specifications. Before you decide to install the application, make sure you already know the minimum required specifications.

To find out, you can search on Google with the keywords Application Name + Requirement, for example, CorelDraw 2021 Requirement.
By looking for the minimum software specifications, you can find out whether your laptop hardware is capable of installing the application. Knowledge of the specifications of the laptop you have is certainly needed for this.

So you have to be able to get to know your own laptop. If you are really a layman, you should ask for expert help to install the application on your laptop.

Laptop specifications that are below the minimum standard will not be able to run applications smoothly, even these applications cannot be installed. Even if it can be installed, if forced to run it can be dangerous for your laptop hardware, resulting in decreased performance, heat, slowness, lag, and no response.

6. Use the Old Version of the Application or the Lite Version

The latest version of the application certainly presents tantalizing features. However, the higher the version of the application, the application will ask for higher the hardware specifications.

If you force to install the latest version of the application, your laptop can be slow when opening the application. Starting from loading it takes a long time, breaks until it is not responding and even the screen becomes Blank Black.

So use the old version of the App. Although the latest version offers a lot of features, the smooth running of the application should take precedence.

7. Increase RAM Capacity

One of the causes of a slow, lag, or even not responding laptop is the lack of RAM capacity. When we open many applications at the same time, the RAM capacity is not enough to accommodate them so they are not responding.

You need to know that RAM serves to store data while applications are running.
Suppose you open Application A with a size of 500MB, Application B with a size of 450MB, while your RAM only has a capacity of 1GB which must have been partially used by the system, of course, your RAM is not sufficient so it is not responding.

After it is not respond, usually the laptop will be slow until you restart it.

Increasing RAM capacity is one way you can do it. The generous RAM capacity makes the multitasking process run smoothly. A minimum of 8GB is required to be able to freely open multiple applications or multiple tabs in the Browser.

Buying RAM needs to pay attention to the technical specifications of the RAM itself. RAM has 3 types that are commonly used: DDR2; DDR3; DDR4. There is also a difference between laptop RAM and PC or computer RAM. Laptop RAM is a SO-DIMM type, while PC RAM is a DIMM type. And there are many other things you need to pay attention to.

8. Reset or Reinstall Windows

If you still don't feel the results, try resetting or reinstalling Windows. Windows 8 and above already have a reset feature, so you don't need to reinstall. But on versions of Windows 7 and below you have to reinstall because there is no Windows reset feature yet.

9. Change the Light Operating System

Windows is an operating system that can be considered quite heavy. Especially if your laptop is old school and forced to install Windows 10. Of course, it will often hang. Especially if you are still using the HDD.

For that, try downgrading your Windows version, or installing a lightweight Linux OS according to your laptop's specifications.

10. Give Thermal Paste on the Laptop Processor

Thermal paste will keep the processor temperature at normal numbers. If the processor temperature is normal then your laptop will also run smoothly.

This method requires special skills of course. It is not easy to disassemble a laptop and reassemble it as before and run as usual. One of your laptops even crashes. So it's better if you don't have this skill, just leave it to the experts.

11. Use Cooling Pad or Vacuum Cooler

Cooling Pad and Vacuum Cooler function to maintain the temperature of your laptop at a normal temperature. If the work you are doing is quite heavy, you should use a Cooling Pad or Vacuum Cooler.

For those of you who don't know, Cooling Pad and Vacuum Cooler are two different things, with different working mechanisms but with the same function, namely cooling the Laptop.

A cooling Pad is a laptop cooler in the form of a placemat or a place to put a laptop that has a fan. If your laptop has a hole at the bottom, you should use a cooling pad so that the hole is not closed.

While the Vacuum Cooler works by sucking hot air from inside the laptop through the heatsink ventilation holes, usually on the side of the laptop. But there are also those behind.

12. Migration from Harddisk Drive (HDD) to SSD

SSD is now a reliable data storage technology because it is superior in terms of its read/write speed. However, the drawback is that SSD prices are quite expensive and SSD life is relatively short.
The slow process can be caused by the slow read/write speed of the hard drive. By replacing the SSD, of course, will greatly affect the speed of your laptop, especially when loading Windows and opening applications.

A slow laptop can be caused by many things. And there are many things you can do to solve it. Hopefully, 12 Ways to Overcome a Slow Laptop can be a solution to your slow laptop problem, OK!
