"Often slow" could be the CPU. Chrome ought not be a problem, but if you have 20 tabs open and you are not using an ad blocker, the non-content script many sites use will impact performance. Occasionally I look at the block counter on a site and it is blocking 150+ items. If they weren't blocked, the page would barely scroll. You can check the ...

In the memory bar, you can also see a small line. That line indicates how far the cache goes. You can also see that the OS is only able to have 485 MB of files in cache. That means: reading files may be slow, because they really have to be read from disk. If you have more RAM, it will look like this: However, it seems your disk is not busy yet: Therefore ...

Windows manages your memory to always keep some free space in RAM so that you can launch new application. It caches less used memory to your hard-disk/ssd and loads those content when necessary. In conclusion, you should add more RAM, as an alternative you can upgrade your storage to ssd if you have hard-disk as your storage.

Thanks for the input team. It seems the USB switch was the direct cause, I ended up plugging mouse and keyboard into my monitor's hub and passing the hub into the USB switch. This seems to have fixed the problem I was having with audio feedback.

I am going to suggest you restart your machine with all unneeded items removed, External hard disks, USB thumbnail drives, etc. Note that there is a lot of Rebooting to these processes. First create a shortcut on your desktop for a Command Prompt (CMD.EXE). After you create the shortcut, right-click on it and choose "Advanced" in the "Shortcut&...

Your computer wakes up for no apparent reason, and this happens only if it is left plugged-in overnight. All the checks for any software-connected problem came up without any result. It's maybe time to thing of a hardware problem. The only explanation I can think of relates to a power problem. The fact that the computer needs to be plugged-in for a long time ...

I'm not certain whether you mean the new lead is 5A or the existing... 5A is already a bit high for a computer PSU mains cable, but as that's the common minimum, it will be fine. If you were particularly paranoid a 3A would be 'safer' by the tiniest margin. Most generic cables are supplied with 13A fuses, because that's just the maximum permissible load. ...

I tried all the above options on my Lenovo Flex 5 laptop and was not able to figure out the issue. After several trial finally I got the solution. Apparently the Touchpad was off. You can easily fix this by searching Touchpad option on start menu. Click on "Turn off the Touchpad menu". A window will open that will show if the touchpad is 'On' or '...

Low battery warning (25%) When the battery level on Windows Vista gets low, there isn’t any pop up or dialogue window come up. Instead, when battery reaches 25%, the indicator turns yellow to notify users about the low battery. The change in color may incite bottom-up process, but again, the small size of the notification area might make it a little bit ...

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T520 which recently developed the same problem you are having. It is most certainly the Intel Management Engine that is the culprit. In my case, I can remove the battery (main battery, not the motherboard CMOS battery) and power cable, reconnect the power cable, and after numerous attemts of rebooting and restarting (by for example ...

I experienced a similar situation. My laptop charger died due to voltgage spikes in my area and I had this same idea of replacing the fuse with with a piece of wire as I urgently needed to charge my laptop and an alternate charger or a new fuse was not an option that time. So I soldered a piece of wire in place of the fuse. As soon as I plugged in the ...

According to this knowledge base article from Dell: Newer Notebook systems are utilizing Intel 4th Generation processors that require a new type of memory SoDIMM known as DDR3-Low Voltage or "DDR3L".

Go with the manufacturer specification, otherwise another utility to use is SIV system information viewer http://rh-software.com/: nothing else comes close to analysing what is in your computer. If I lookup the model number of the ram it states ddr3l. CPUz is incorrect.

I had the same problem with my ASUS laptop. Even though I had "Do Nothing" in the "When I close the lid" setting, but the laptop would still go to sleep when I closed the lid. All I did to correct this was that I just changed that setting to something else and then changed it back to "Do Nothing" and then started working like it ...

That is common if the OEM power delivery system wasn't designed to run full-tilt full-time (either due to OEM value engineering, or thermal constraints). As mentioned above, 180W power brick is not quite enough for some gaming laptops and they will in fact lose charge over time while heavily loaded for long periods. AFAIK, currently the highest powered ...

It works on 12 GB, you can verify here. I replaced old 4GB RAM slot with Kingston 8GB DDR3 1600MHz KVR16S11/8 and it works great. As you said it has to be DDR3, 1600MHz, 1.35V and preferably CL11.

This laptop is not new and HP does not provide drivers for Windows 10. The HP drivers for Windows 8.1 can still be useful, but the only related one that is not ancient is the BIOS from Feb 28, 2018, version F.67 Rev. A. Check if this BIOS is not already installed, and if not then install it very carefully, reading carefully the installation instructions. If ...

If you uninstalled the software, it's not at fault... unless some errant process is still running in the background, perhaps a left-over service or malware, from malicious installation. Use Task Manager to see what is using so much CPU time. Also check for malware with your antivirus suite, e.g. Defender.

They're actually the same. Lithium-ion and lithium-polymer cells have nominal voltages in the range of 3.6-3.8V. Their actual voltage fluctuates though, it can be slightly higher when the cell is charged. Your battery contains three such cells nominally rated 3.7V each, 11.1V in total because they're connected in series. The replacement battery has cells ...

Short answer: Yes For laptops and mobile electronics, I always recommend surge protectors that use resettable circuit breakers, such as Panamax's Power360 Wall Tap (auto-senses under-voltage and over-voltage, auto tripping and resetting its internal breaker when required, providing a LED ring with three diagnostic lights). Using any externally powered ...

I was fighting the loud DELL fan for ages - lifting the PC so it can breathe air from the bottom, installing DELL power manager, etc. Nothing worked.

To simplify, the question ought to be; how many watts per hour does a AC powered charger designed to power a DC powered device that requires 65 watts to power it require in units equal to watts per hour. I am guessing more than 65 watts per hour due to the conversion from AC to DC. I do not know and am guessing based upon limited knowledge. but the ...

I have seen this issue on some laptops, especially with OLED screens.

It states that "you cannot put DDR3 in a DDR3L slot" because it can only operate at 1.5v and not 1.35v. It also states that you can put "DDR3L in a DDR3 slot" because DDR3L can operate at 1.35v and 1.5v. As your quote states 4th gen Intel processors, which exclusively support 1.35V operation for memory. Your slots are exclusively low ...

@user2901512 is right: there are big ambient temperature differences between day and night, which explain your observation.

Yeah, you can partition your Hard Drive and dual boot Windows and Linux, assuming you have Windows already installed. Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gS5SoogltE and this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPUVIc-W13s to learn more.

Well for starters it's hotter during the daytime because of the heat of the sun... To mitigate this I would simply use a heat-conductive material (conductive as in to draw out i.e to absorb). I recommend an oven tray because it is of the right size, shape, and material. This of course is not a solution, just something that can help out.

Is it safe to have it turned on 24/7? Yes. Should I remove the battery from the laptop or keep it as a backup power source? I'd keep it. The laptop will run off power supply if it's connected. The excessive battery wear when laptop is running on AC is mostly a myth. With default settings the battery will charge to 100% and then laptop's circuitry will ...

One way to know what is slowing down a computer is monitoring usage in Task manager. Right click the taskbar and click on task manager, Go to performance tap and check if anything is near 100% when your computer is slow. My guess is your graphics card is not good enough to run two monitors or the resolution of it, But that shouldn't slow down your PC only ...

Disconnect all your internal drives and try to boot your live CD. Then try to boot again adding one drive after another to search the culprit that prevents booting. The best thing is to remove your broken drive and connect it to a running linux system to see if it is recognized there.

DisplayFusion is another viable alternative.

The problems seem to be power-oriented: The fact that turning electrical appliances on/off in the house causes problems may mean that the electricity in your house is not well isolated and some appliances cause strong electrical surges, which is quite dangerous. In that case the computer needs to be protected with a UPS or at least with a surge protector. ...
