One of many ways to solve the problem of a slow computer is to defragment your hard drive. if you are using a window 7 OS, just click on the start menu and type "defrag". Within the control panel menu, click on "defragment your hard drive". Click on "analyze" in the menu that pops up. After the system has finished analyzing your hard drive for fragmented portion, click on "defragment disk". if you are using a windows 8 OS, type "defrag" on the command prompt. You can can download a more efficient defrag tool called "Auslogics dik defrag".

Also to make your system faster, you can remove the aero effect which requires more run time to display. Right click on your desktop and click on "personalise", scroll down and then choose the windows 7 basic theme.


Also,you can also upgrade your RAM. Running multiple programs simultaneously on your system with little memory space(RAM), will slow down your computer. Consider increasing your RAM size

My laptop from time to time makes sounds as if the hard drive is rotating. It makes that sound each time I on it and periodically during operation. The sound resembles something turning around inside like the hard disk.

Well, its normal for you to observe the oscillating sound of the circular disk in your hard drive when the system is in use. But when the noise becomes so obvious....as in if it becomes so audible that it gets your attention, then you have to run a S.M.A.R.T check on such drive so as to know the health of the drive . I will advise you back up your files in an external storage as soon as you can.

Due to the increasing number of clients experiencing the problem of their laptop not charging and similar problems. I have decided to explain what you should do whenever you experience such. This will help you make the best decision and not pay money to self-aclaimed engineers for doing nothing. Do not rush to take your laptop to any engineer except a trusted and honest one. This is because if they check and discover your charger or battery is faulty, they won't tell you but rather tell you something else that would make you cough our money for a nonexistent fault in addition to buying the battery or charger.

First try charging the battery for a good time like over an hour. While charging, observe if the charging light is on. Also observe what the battery notification says when you run the system into windows. After checking , come back and see my verdict.

Plugged in and charging ( battery percentage increasing)>>>battery and system are OK.

plugged in charging ( battery percentage not increasing) >>> first try another charger to ensure your charger is not the culprit. Also try another battery to be sure your battery is OK. If after you try these and still not charging, your board is the culprit. If you are opportuned, try more than one charger and battery.

Plugged in and not charging>>>>Also try another charger and battery ( try more than one charger and battery). If after trying and your system refuse to charge either your battery or another battery, then your mother board needs to be checked.

There are so many things that could cause some or all of the keys of your keyboard to stop working. If the keys were working before and you didn't tamper with your system recently the chance is high your system needs service. I will advice you restart the system and observe if it would work. if it doesn't , try restoring your computer back to an earlier time when it was in perfect condition. if it still doesnt work, loose out the keyboard, dust it and replace it. test it.
if it doesn't work, try testing another keyboard and test for those keys that where not working.

Thank you for this platform.

Water poured heavily on my system - through the keypad area. Ever since then, it has refused to boot completely; constantly restarting at a point.

What do I do?

Sadly, you already took the wrong action of powering the laptop after water poured in it. You should have quickly remove the battery to prevent the water from short circuiting the motherboard.
It is certain the mother board now has a problem and only a board engineer can help you. If you are resident in Lagos , you can call or whatsapp me on 08164685979 to fix the board..

I want you to look properly if you can see the " HP" logo faintly when you power it on. If you can see the logo immediately you on it, then the lamping of your screen or the signal cable maybe bad. You can whatspp me on 08164685979 to tell you what to do in order to diagnose the issue.

Intel, bro.
OK...now do this. When you power on thr laptop, press the cap lock key to see if it is going off and on or responding. if it is not responding, then its probably VGA problem. But if it is responding , then the problem should be from screen or signal cable.

Hmm...are you sure you coupled the computer hardware correctly? Wrong coupling can cause so many problems including what you are experiencing.
You should loose out the mother board. connect the power switch and the screen . plug charger and switch it on. If it powers on and displays on the screen , then the problem you were experiencing is due to wrong coupling. so take your time again and carefully couple it again.

I guess "static sounds" means making noise-like sounds or not sounding properly as it used to.
Hope you didn't do a repair lately that included loosing out the components parts of your system? I believe it is not your fan since the noise only comes on when you play music.

Many laptops usually have two speakers usually found beneath the tiny holes of your motherboard up-casing .So compare the sound coming from both speakers to see if one of them is burst.
Best option is to inspect the speakers for damage. if you can't do this yourself, see an engineer. if you are in Lagos, reach me on the mobile in my signature.
