Laptop is overheating
When your laptop getting physically hot or even turning off by itself it is likely an overheating issue.
Too many Apps opened at once
Having too many apps open at the same time can make your laptop overheat due to it having to do more work. For which the solution would be to locate the search engine on the device which would normally be located at the bottom left side of the of the device. Once you get to the search engine type in “ Task Manager” and proceed to entering the task manager where you can find all the tabs that are open at the time. From there the next step would be to close all the tabs that are open and which you aren’t using at the moment.
Dust is blowing out of my cooling fan
There can also be dust in ventilation which can cause overheating and the way to get rid of it is by doing a deep cleaning. If there is no ventilation and the fan is not working then you must have the cooling fan replaced. Due to improper ventilation or faulty CPU fan a system would heat to the peak point and leads to the sudden hard disks crash, if this happens use this guide to replace your hard drive.
Programs running slowly
When I open a program it takes too long to load up.
Multiple windows and apps opened
When the programs on your device is running slow the steps that you should take towards improving the speed of the programs is by again finding the search engine and searching up “ Task Manager” . Go onto the task manager and find the tabs that are open but that you aren’t using at the time and exit them out. That will help strengthen the speed of the programs that you are using at the time. To replace the memory cards in your laptop to create more memory space, which could be a fix to your problem as well, follow this guide to replace the laptops memory cards.
Give your device a break
Another reason why the programs could be running too slow is because the device could’ve been open for too long and it could need a break. If your computer is not running to speed, you should think about replacing your hard drive. To replace your hard drive follow this replacement guide.
Laptop is not charging
When I connect the charger to the laptop, the LED light to denote if the device is charging or not, is off.
If the device is not charging
There can be a couple of reasons on why the battery isn’t charging and the first thing to do is always check the charger to see if it’s broken or has had any damage done to it. If the charging port of the charger is damaged, you might want to considering purchasing a new charger.
When the battery is faulty
Another reason could be that the battery is simply just useless anymore meaning it is time to get new batteries for the device. A common problem described when the the device dies too quickly and there’s actually a way that determines if you need a new a battery. That method is just simply noticing if your device lasts at the least 3 hours without dying and if it doesn’t that means it’s time to get a new battery.

WiFi/Bluetooth not Working
A no internet or no device found error appears on my display screen.
Faulty connection from the laptop
The WiFi/Bluetooth can simply just be turned off in which case you would just need to go onto settings which would be located on the bottom right of your device. When at the settings menu just enable either the WiFi/Bluetooth and you should be all set. If that still doesn’t I’d advice to just check the device that you’re trying to connect too. If you issues exceed this, you may want to consider replacing your wireless card for best performance. Replace the wireless card with this replacement guide.
Airplane mode is turned on
In this case you would just simply just go to the settings menu, located on the bottom right menu of the laptop display and disable air plane mode.
Keyboard/keys not working
Most keys are unresponsive when stroked.
When there are sticky keys
When the Keyboard not working/sticky keys sometimes it could be that the the Keyboard is broken and not working in which case I’d advice to just go ahead and just buy a new keyboard if its not responding.
Dust and debris stuck under keys
Sometimes it could just be that the keyboard is just dirty and sticky in which I’d advice you to purchase a canned air and this link will provide with the proper steps towards canning the keyboard properly here.
