Fix Laptop Freezes In A FEW Steps!!!
Laptops have become a very important part of our lives and this is the reason why we want to make sure that they are up and running all the time. Regular or frequent freezing of the laptop could be a pretty frustrating experience. It can also result in the loss of productivity. But that is not it. The freezing happens without any forewarning and thus any unsaved data is lost. Here are some ways to troubleshoot this problem and prevent the laptop from frequent freezing.
Number 1: Scan the laptop for any malware
You may have a malware or virus causing this issue. It is best to run a full scan of the computer using the antivirus software. You must also keep your antivirus program up to date.
Number 2: Checking the hard drive space
If the drive on which you have installed the Windows OS is full or nearly full than you may experience the freezing issues. Usually, the OS files are on the C drive. It would be good to move the data to another drive on the same computer, a different computer, or to an external storage. This will clear out the space and may take care of the freezing issue.
Number 3: cleaning the insides of the laptop
The dust and dirt may accumulate on the internal components of the laptop causing performance issues and overheating. This, in return, may be the reason for regular freezing of the device. Use the air compressor to clean the insides of the laptop without opening it. However, if you haven’t cleaned it in a long time, you may need to open the back cover for better cleaning. It would be better to take the laptop to a computer shop.
Number 4: Terminate unwanted program
Lower availability of RAM is known to cause the freezing issues in many cases. You can open the Task Manager and close the unwanted programs running in the background. But remember not to close the system programs as it may crash the laptop.
Number 5: Remove the unwanted programs
If you want to clear up more space on the hard drive, you can uninstall or remove the software programs that you do not use. This may help prevent the freezing issue.
Number 6: Upgrade RAM
Lower RAM can cause freezing issues. Adding an additional RAM or upgrading to a better one can help prevent this problem.
Number 7: Checking the Operating System Requirements
If you are upgrading to a new operating system, always confirm if your laptop’s configuration support the minimum requirement. An OS that demands higher hardware capabilities not supported by your laptop may cause serious problems.
Number 8: Clean the Registry
Cleaning the registry of the unwanted entries can help resolve the freezing issues. You can use a registry cleaner program such as CCleaner for such purposes.
Number 9: Using Windows Task Manager Effectively
You can open the Task Manager of the Windows to troubleshoot a few problems. To open Task Manager, press ‘CTRL’, ‘Alt’ and ‘Del’ keys together and choose Task Manager from the screen. You can also right click on the Task Bar and choose Task Manager from the pop-up menu. Once it is open, click on the Performance tab and review your laptop’s performance. The RAM usage usually fluctuates based on the number of applications running at a particular time. If RAM usage is more than 80 percent then you either have lesser memory or there are some unwanted programs (like a virus) running in the background.
