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.

25 Responses To Your Friend Who Doesn't Text Back

Omg thanks for responding so quickly...oh, wait.

We all have that friend. That friend we love to death, but if we are sure of anything in this world, it’s that they will not respond to your text because they suck at texting. That moment when you see “Read 1:04 p.m.” and you’re like “and???? Helloooooooo!”

These are 25 responses for that dear friend.

Feel Free To Speak Your Opinion, But Don't Get Pissed When Others Do The Same

You can't expect others to respect your opinion if you can't do the same.


Our society is built on opinions. Think about it. Most of what we say is opinion-based in some way, shape or form. Voicing our views is easier than ever thanks to social media platforms and technology as a whole. Sometimes, though, this platform does way more harm than good.

Posting your opinion online, whether it's about politics, a new movie or some viral controversy, is all fun and games until someone comments their own opinion and it just happens to differ from yours. You would think that the person who originally started the conversation would be interested in engaging with others. After all, they did initiate the thread. Most of the time, though, this isn't the case. Just by simply stating your perspective, you're subjecting yourself to criticism—of your character, your looks, your gender, your education level, everything. Sometimes, it doesn't even remotely relate to whatever you were talking about in the first place. They'll use whatever ammunition they have against you, as if it somehow justifies their argument (which it never does, in case you were wondering).

People get so caught up in being right that they forget there's other people out there who may not agree with everything you have to say. And that's okay. We all grew up differently. We all process information differently. We all experience things differently. All of these (and plenty more) are what shape our opinions about the world around us. Attacking one another for your difference in opinion isn't going to magically make them see your perspective. if anything, they're less likely to consider your point of view.

Ask yourself: Is it really worth your energy to engage in a childish feud in your Facebook comments? Is your opinion sooooooo important that you find the need to verbally abuse someone for doing the exact same thing you were doing in the first place? The answer is no. So what if you tweet about how Kanye West's new album is pure genius, and someone tweets you back and says you're crazy. They may not feel the lyrics the way you do, or maybe they're more of an A$AP Rocky kind of person. Their opinion isn't causing you any harm, so who cares? You got to share your opinion; now they're just doing the same. Accept it and move along with your day.

Forget your opinion; you reveal more about who you are when you choose to continuously participate in making rude comments towards people who just don't think like you do. And when all is said and done, no one reading along is going to remember what you were fighting about in the first place. All they're going to think about is how immature and idiotic you looked. We have enough hate in this world already, there's no need to be apart of it.

So the next time you're typing out a tweet or a Facebook post, make sure you're prepared to get comments that may not match up with yours. If you can't respect another person's point of view, then you probably shouldn't be using social media in the first place.
