Our laptop is one of the most used devices and thus, we become quite conscious about them most of the time. However, there’s no real assurance if things can remain perfect every time and they will not go terribly bad every once in a while. Any problem can arrive anytime that can be a hardware failure or just nasty software issues that render your laptop useless. It is always advised to diagnose before prognosis therefore, here are some of the most common problems that you can face with your laptop.
Battery can drain quickly: Find out if the battery of your laptop has gone out of order by detaching it from the laptop and then plugging the charger into the laptop. If the laptop still switches on and works fine, then it implies that your battery has issues. Similarly, if the laptop doesn’t turn on with the charger connected and battery removed, then it could be a charger problem.
Keyboard is not working: Your entire keyboard might stop functioning or it can be just a few keys. In this case, only if few keys are not working, it could simply be because of some sort of obstruction or dust. To fix this, you can simply turn the laptop upside down and shake lightly to see if that helps dislodge any dirt or dust.But if the problem is with all the keys, then one of the first things you can check for is faulty keyboard drivers which can be checked using Device manager.
Overheating: Overheating processor or graphics card can also cause the laptop to crash suddenly. You might be able to feel the heat given out by the laptop, around the vents. You can notice the temperature of the CPU and GPU on your laptop by installing some software or application on your laptop. The overheating could also be ue to the fan not working properly or having completely turned off.
Memory issues: On your laptop, press the Windows key + R, to run the command. In the command box, type in ‘mdsched.exe’ and press ‘OK’. The pop-up window will now check your memory issues. It will prompt you to either check the problem that instant or after you switch on the laptop the next time, opt for the option as per your preference.
Laptop refuses to start: Diagnosing a problem where the laptop won’t turn on, or the screen doesn’t turn on, can be difficult but there can be two different things viz.
Laptop powers on, but without any display: In this case, it could be a problem with the display itself. In such a case, try to watch the hard drive indicators to see if the hard drive is active or is it trying to boot up the windows.
Windows start booting but don’t proceed: In such a case, keep the windows recovery disk handy. You may be able to repair the damage by booting into the Recovery disc or USB drive.
