How to speed up your Windows Laptop?

Well, the solution depends on the exact cause of your laptop slowing down. We will offer the solutions by analyzing the possible root causes. Do note that these remedies have been taken in liaison with Dell Service Center in Gurugram. I assure you of their authenticity.

#1. Reboot your System

The easiest way to sort out any issue with your laptops would be to reboot your system. Though you may feel it to be strange, it does solve most of the problems that your laptop may be suffering from.

Rebooting helps your device to purge off the issues that may be plaguing it. Do note that this can help your laptop to get back to normalcy if it facing only a few temporary issues.

#2. Check out the Heavy apps

Some resource hungry applications can make your laptop go slow. It could be possible that some applications may be using up the resources. You may not be able to blame it on the application alone. There can be temporary problems that may have caused it to have a memory leak or any other such issue.

To check it out, launch your Task Manager. You can do it with key combinations like CTRL+Shift+Esc. The exact combination will depend on your operating system version. You can sort the applications based on Memory, Disk or CPU usage. If you find an app using unusual memory, close it by using End Task option here.

#3. Manage Startup Programs

Maybe there are some start up programs that you may not need at all. Letting them run in the background can have performance effects of your laptop. Disabling the startup programs that you may not need is the best way to save memory and CPU usage and thereby address the slow performance.

#4. Get rid of Animations

Fancy animations can give you a good appearance and aesthetics. But, they tend to slow down your PC considerably. You can choose to disable animations altogether or decide to turn them off for a few specific operations or programs. You can do so through Advanced System Settings.

#5. Improvise your web browser

You may be using several plugins and extensions for your browser. Though they tend to enhance the usability and functionality of your browser, these plugins also cause your browser to slow down. Moreover, added extensions and plugins can make your browser consume more memory.Do check your browser extensions and plugins periodically. Remove the add-ons that you may not need, or have not used for a long time.

#6. Check Adware and Malware

Malicious software can cause your laptop to slow down. We are not referring to virus attack, but only to a nonintrusive malware that may be attempting to track your browsing data and serve more ads based on your usage patterns. Such tools and spyware can cause your laptop to go slow as they tend to work in the background. Always use a good quality Anti-virus and Anti-malware software. Malware bytes are a good service provider that should help you fight malware.

Concluding Thoughts

Well, those are some of the options you can use to handle the issue of a slowed down laptop. There can be a host of reasons that can slow your laptop down. As such, it may not be that easy to pin point the specific reasons and suggest ways to get it back to normal. However, we have made an attempt at covering a wider possibility and offered suggestions that should help you make your laptop work as it used to do.

You can also follow a few other steps like defragmenting the drive, freeing up the disk space using disk clean-up and removing the applications that you no longer. If you are still facing an issue, get in touch with Laptop Repair home Service to get your issues addressed.

Sorry Not Sorry, My Parents Paid For My Coachella Trip

No haters are going to bring me down.

With Coachella officially over, lives can go back to normal and we can all relive Beyonce’s performance online for years to come. Or, if you were like me and actually there, you can replay the experience in your mind for the rest of your life, holding dear to the memories of an epic weekend and a cultural experience like no other on the planet.

And I want to be clear about the Beyonce show: it really was that good.

But with any big event beloved by many, there will always be the haters on the other side. The #nochella’s, the haters of all things ‘Chella fashion. And let me just say this, the flower headbands aren’t cultural appropriation, they’re simply items of clothing used to express the stylistic tendency of a fashion-forward event.

Because yes, the music, and sure, the art, but so much of what Coachella is, really, is about the fashion and what you and your friends are wearing. It's supposed to be fun, not political! Anyway, back to the main point of this.

One of the biggest things people love to hate on about Coachella is the fact that many of the attendees have their tickets bought for them by their parents.

Sorry? It’s not my fault that my parents have enough money to buy their daughter and her friends the gift of going to one of the most amazing melting pots of all things weird and beautiful. It’s not my fault about your life, and it’s none of your business about mine.

All my life, I’ve dealt with people commenting on me, mostly liking, but there are always a few that seem upset about the way I live my life.

One time, I was riding my dolphin out in Turks and Cacaos, (“riding” is the act of holding onto their fin as they swim and you sort of glide next to them. It’s a beautiful, transformative experience between human and animal and I really think, when I looked in my dolphin’s eye, that we made a connection that will last forever) and someone I knew threw shade my way for getting to do it.

Don’t make me be the bad guy.

I felt shame for years after my 16th birthday, where my parents got me an Escalade. People at school made fun of me (especially after I drove into a ditch...oops!) and said I didn’t deserve the things I got in life.

I can think of a lot of people who probably don't deserve the things in life that they get, but you don't hear me hating on them (that's why we vote, people). Well, I’m sick of being made to feel guilty about the luxuries I’m given, because they’ve made me who I am, and I love me.

I’m a good person.

I’m not going to let the Coachella haters bring me down anymore. Did my parents buy my ticket and VIP housing? Yes. Am I sorry about that? Absolutely not.

Sorry, not sorry!

An Open Letter To My University's Library

I love your simultaneous atmosphere of academics and procrastination.

Dear Henderson Library,

I appreciate you, I really do. You're always there on Finals week when I need constant light that I can't control in order to keep me awake. Your rows of computers and printers are always available when I need to print out a twenty-page journal article before my next class. The people at the front desk are always kind when I check out a book at midnight because I couldn't sleep. You are always there and always friendly.

But, Henderson Library, Hendy if you will, we need more plugs. Many a time I have nearly fought a Freshman over a table or chair next to a plug, and I cannot work in such hostile conditions with her glaring at me from across the room. In a time when I can't watch an episode of Stranger Things without my laptop's battery nearly dying, electrical plugs are a necessity that you cannot ignore.

You might be thinking that as a college student, I should spend my time doing scholarly activities like banging my head into textbooks in frustration, crying over term papers, and searching for jobs if I decided to spontaneously drop out. Right now. But I think we both know that college student is synonymous to Netflix procrastinator, so obviously that's not going to happen.

But for a moment of seriousness, with college students situated securely in the technology age to the degree that nearly every piece of homework I have requires me to use my laptop, easy access to electricity is just as much of a necessity as my laptop. No matter how good my battery is, it will still gasp for relief after two hours of working on a research paper with fifteen tabs on Google Chrome open, as well as my playlist on Spotify, and three different Microsoft Word documents.

I love you Hendy. I love all of your windows, your view of the lake. I love your simultaneous atmosphere of academics and procrastination. But I would honestly spend way more time among your books, desk tops, and tables if I knew that I could reliably keep my most prized possessions alive in these troubled times of my undergraduate degree.
