3 Things To Do When Your Laptop Keeps Hanging; If your laptop has begun to slow down or freezes while you are in the middle of something important, it can be extremely disruptive to your productivity and image, especially if you are in an important meeting or completing critical work.
However, this does not always imply that it is time to purchase a new laptop. It is clear that your laptop requires some attention.
One of the most common questions asked by laptop users, whether they have a Dell laptop, an HP laptop, or a Lenovo laptop, is, “Why does my laptop keep hanging?” or “What to Do If Your Laptop Freezes.”
3 Things To Do When Your Laptop Keeps Hanging
Close any unwanted apps or services that are running in the background.
This is the first thing you should try if your laptop freezes. Most of us are probably aware of it, but how many of us remember to do it when the laptop freezes? When you press the Ctrl + Alt + Delete keys on your laptop’s keyboard at the same time, the Windows Task Manager window will appear.
All you have to do is determine which programs are using the most CPU and RAM resources. If you find an unwanted program that is consuming a lot of laptop computing resources, select it and then click the ‘End Task’ button.
Once all unwanted programs and background processes have been identified and closed, your problem should be resolved and the laptop should resume normal operation. If that doesn’t work, you may have to forcefully shut down your device by holding down the ‘Power’ button for a few seconds before restarting it. Don’t forget to save the document you’re working on so you don’t lose important information.
Use a cooling pad to avoid overheating your laptop.
When a laptop heats up and the processor must reduce its clock speed in order to maintain safe operating temperatures, the processor may not operate at optimal clock speeds, which can cause a laptop to slow down. Performance throttling is the term for this problem. When a laptop overheats, its fans are operating at full capacity, and you might notice that the cooling fan inside the laptop is making unusually loud noises. You can tell that your laptop is overheating by its behavior.
You must ensure that your laptop effectively dissipates heat generated inside of it if you want to stop performance throttling. Additionally, you must check to see that dust isn’t obstructing the air vents and exhausts that the laptop uses to vent hot air. Air vent obstructions can be a serious issue.
Utilizing a cooling pad is the most effective way to prevent laptop overheating. Additional cooling is intended to be provided by laptop coolers. Hot air is drawn in from the laptop’s air exhaust vents and expelled outside by fans inside the laptop cooling pad. This aids in keeping the laptop cool. Additionally, always place the laptop on a flat, hard surface to allow hot air to easily escape.
For improved multitasking performance, increase your RAM.
Insufficient RAM could also be the cause of your laptop freezing frequently. To keep the system operating smoothly, there must be enough RAM. By doing this, you can ensure that every program you run at once can continue to run in RAM.
If your laptop doesn’t have enough RAM to load all of these heavy programs or files, your laptop may hang if you run several heavy programs simultaneously (such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, AutoCAD, or Visual Studio). You might need to either upgrade to a laptop with more RAM or upgrade your current laptop to add more RAM (provided that it supports RAM upgrades).
When you first turn on your laptop and everything works perfectly, but after a few hours the computer starts to slow down, files take too long to open, and websites take too long to load, that is one of the simplest signs that the laptop has a RAM problem. An inadequate amount of RAM may be to blame. Additionally, if your laptop restarts frequently, this is a definite sign that your RAM needs to be replaced.
