Why is my laptop so slow?



This is a question we hear on a daily basis, and the answer is multifaceted (having many sides). A slow laptop can be the result of a variety of things, one thing, or multiple issues. In most cases, a slow laptop is caused by a faulty or slow HDD (Hard Disk Drive) an upgrade to SSD should resolve this. However, it can also be the result of not enough RAM, slow CPU, overheating, or that your laptop is bloated with software, viruses, or errors.


The first thing you should do is install CCLEANER, which is a freeware software that speeds your PC up by cleaning up any unnecessary waste. If that doesn't work, the issue is likely caused by defective hardware. The hard drive (OR SSD) could be at the end of life, this can be replaced by the user, but it depends on where the drive is located. Also, when taking the laptop apart to inspect this, the user should inspect the fan to determine if dust is building up inside the laptop. You should also check to ensure that the battery and charger are still functioning correctly.
