Tip & How-To about HP Computers & Internet

PC Becoming Slow I know that kind of feeling you feel when it takes like 5 minutes to open just an app. Well, this is another common computer problems people face in their daily lives. The root cause is usually due to the duration of how long you have been operating the PC. A computer that is older than 2 years will experience this, regardless of their specifications. Solutions: 1. Find resource-hungry program With your system full of programs, there will definitely be one or two programs that use lots of your resources, for instance, a ram. To find out, open the Task Manager. You can right-click your taskbar and select the "Task Manager" option or press Ctrl+Shift+Escape to open it. On Windows 8, 8.1, and 10. Click the "CPU," "Memory," and "Disk" headers to sort the list by the applications using the most resources. If any application is using too many resources, you might want to close it normally - if you can't, select it here and click "End Task" to force it to close. 2. Disable startup program Autostart programs during system startup can be the major reason why your PC is slowing down. On Windows 8, 8.1, and 10, there's now a startup manager in the Task Manager you can use to manage your startup programs. Right-click the taskbar and select "Task Manager" or press Ctrl+Shift+Escape to launch it. Click over to the Startup tab and disable startup applications you don't need. Windows will helpfully tell you which applications slow down your startup process the most. 3. Scan for malware and adware Day-to-day usage of computers can make you accidentally catch malware and adware. These are usually small malicious programs, caught from the internet when we browse or download something. These programs are designed to steal your information and to that, they have to transfer information over the internet, which can potentially slow down your system. To remove them, simply use your built-in anti-virus software to scan and detect.

Slow computer

Improper computer maintenance may result in slow PC. To fix computer running slow you are required to clean junk and windows errors from your PC using a System Utilities program.
To download a reliable System Utilities, go to famous website download.cnet and search there Reginout. Which I personally use and recommend the friends.
After downloading run all of its tools one by one except Internet Optimizer, to clean all the junk and error files from your computer.

The laptop screen freezes and fades out slowly becoming darker and darker. Moving the screen however helps restore it back to life for a short while


Ok, because the screen gets better for a little while if you move it, this might just be a simple connection problem. The thing is, and it is quit common on notebooks, is that the data cable linking the screen to the motherboard sometimes get a little loose. Hence, the screen still works, but not properly.

I would suggest that you open up the unit and just make sure that the data cable is plugged in correctly. If you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can take it to your nearest computer repair shop.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Following are the common methods to increase computer running speed:
