comment Car charger for a laptop
There are voltage converters for laptops that can step up the voltage to 19V but they are more suited to lower power devices and are typically only rated at about 100W maximum. Additionally an average car might struggle to provide the full 150W through the cigarette lighter even with the engine running and there would be extra power loss due to the step up adapter. If your laptop is put under heavy stress and draws more power than the adapter or car is designed for then you will probably blow a fuse or worse you could damage something.

comment Memory not Unloading
What you are talking about is cached memory, but as his original screenshot shows, only 282MB of his 8GB of RAM is being used that way. The important figure to look at is Available RAM which is barely 5% and dangerously low - it's not surprising that performance was affected. Available memory is not the same as free memory and includes cached memory that can be reallocated.

Please provide a screenshot of the processes in Task Manager and make sure you select Show processes for all users. Also consider posting a screenshot from something like RAMMap (technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff700229.aspx)

comment Asus laptop makes weird sound when touched
Since the laptop casing is metal it might be a grounding issue. Does it happen when running on battery? Have you tried a different power outlet?

What kind of device/OS are you using and have you tried a traceroute/tracert? Have you tested another device to see if it is also affected?

comment Usage of Stackoverflow: Is there any way to find the most popular keyword?
@Juneyoung Oh: It's possible to write queries to extract such information from a StackExchange site using the Data Explorer feature. Something like this should do the trick: data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/edit/305910
