Whether you are a frequent flyer who travels a lot with his laptop or someone who just uses a laptop casually, your laptops are subject to a lot more punishment compared to desktop computers. There are two reasons for it. First is the fact that laptops are so flexible you do almost everything on your laptop, from simple internet browsing to office work and entertainment. The second reason is the way your laptops are built, they are not as large as personal desktop computers and the confined space means lots of small units trying to put in a big performance.
Despite their lots of flexibility and convenience, laptops in a way are very easy to present signs of wear and tear. This wear and tear both inside and outside can reflect on the performance of your laptops as well and this will eventually hurt your speed. This is why it is important to manage your laptops and also ensure that you use quick fixes to small issues so that in the long run your laptop is fine. Today’s blog is going to talk about four quick fixes for your laptop to ensure effective laptop management.
Some of the basic symptoms of your over-heated laptop can be computer crash, freeze or terrible heat on your keyboard or towards the bottom of your laptop. The best way to avoid overheating your laptop is to use it in a cool temperature, a few degrees below the normal room temperature. Overheating can also be avoided by shutting your laptop down for few hours in the middle and letting the board cool down a bit. You can also try cleaning out the vents of your exhaust fan in the laptop to ensure that the air is freely blowing out of the laptop and the heat is not building up quickly.
When you continue to install lots of programs and software on your drives, the files start to get disorganized and dormant. This means they are taking up irrelevant spaces on your drive, hence putting an extra load on your laptop. This will slow your laptop down and will also affect the performance of your hard disk. Disk defragmentation is a process which will help your computers keep all the necessary files sorted and delete the unnecessary cache on the drive. Hence, keeping your drive free of any extra load will also make it last a little longer.
With time, your battery will be the first thing to show signs of wear and tear. If you have some spare money, then always change your battery and upgrade it in a few years of time. Use your charger effectively to manage your battery charge and not put extra load on the battery while draining it all the time.
Sometimes your operating software can become obsolete or corrupt; this will really slow your computer down. You can manage that by reinstalling your Windows or even upgrade it to a newer version, this will also keep your drives fresh by deleting the useless files.
