Common Laptop Problems Solved

Every piece of equipment, now and then develops one problem or the other. Some are due to wear and tear, misuse, prolonged use or the problem just shows up from no where. Some of the problems a laptop could come down with are serious, but a few are very common and easy to fix, and they include:-- The laptop is too hot- The laptop is too slow- No response at all

For example a laptop might not come on because the battery has completely discharged while the user thought it was plugged in, in which case you recharge the battery and problem solved. In a situation where the problem is beyond that you should consider sending your laptop to an expert to trouble shoot, pinpoint the problem and fit it.

Another very common problem is the laptop being too hot. Ideally, a laptop is expected to produce some heat, but sometimes it gets so hot that you cannot use or touch the computer without some discomfort. Solutions for a hot laptop include keeping it clean. Make sure that the vents by the side of the computer are not clogged with lint or debris, so that when the inbuilt fan in the system come on to cool it down, it can blow the hot air out through the vents. Use canned air to blow out debris from hard to reach surfaces.

Make sure the laptop is turned off before doing this. Also blow out dirt from the keyboard and keep the screen clean.Another way to disperse the heat from your laptop is to invest in a laptop pad. There are several out there in the market, and if you get the best one for your computer, it will keep the temperature down and most of all let you use the laptop on your lap without discomfort.Another very common problem is the laptop being too slow. Your laptop does not process information as fast as it used to and this can be very frustrating. It could be a serious problem causing it, but most of the time it is not. The solution could be as easy as getting rid of some files.
