Laptop Running Slow Solution by ReactGA: 12:32pm On Oct 12, 2020
Hello guyz,
First, My laptop which is HP Intel core i5 gradually slows down when I unplug the computer from charging especially when I'm running some particular applications. Although I know the battery is not very OK (which I would still ask of the price later), my former computer which is hp Pentium 4gb ram(very lower specs) runs those applications smoothly when unplugged.

So I want to ask what could be the cause of the problem? Battery,OS,hard drive etc

And secondly how much is the battery of the laptop.

damn, that's an outdated Lappy, Upgrade it and if you can't just Backup your files Format and reinstall windows. But seriously, upgrade it.

Thanks for your input.

But my brother, money is the main issue. To get a better laptop, I'll need to add nothing less than 50k -100k which I don't have now.

But I'm thinking of downgrading back to windows 7 since it has always been more stable what do you think.

i5 is not slow at all, I use i5 and i7 and i3, check most laptop has a function of conversing power when unplugged so they run like that to converse power. Check your Power mode when plugged and try setting it to for performance it just means your battery will die faster, also check your task manager and see if the resources is used up RAM or CPU.
