I am looking to speed up my laptop. Does anyone have a simple format or guideline that a non technical person can use.

 

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Steve,

The question is too blank to effectively help right away, but let's see where we can start.

1) ​What is the laptop model so we can verify the hardware specifications
2) What operating system are you using?
3) Is the laptop having issues?

There are ways to make a laptop go faster that are hardware based. Mainly the upgrades you would possibly look at are memory, and replacing hard drive with a solid state drive.

Software based, if your system is having issues or acting way more sluggish than it should - I would suggest this free tool I found on the sidebar'a latest downloads section: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/windows-repair-all-in-one/

I fell on it just when I needed to revive a secondary Windows 7 desktop computer. I was surprised at how well it worked, and how simple it was. The steps for successfully running a repair on your computer are laid out simply enough, but if you're not familiar with booting in safe mode for example, a little help could be handy.
