Laptop Freezes/Fan issue - Emmanuel Katto

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am Emmanuel Katto from Uganda. I've noticed that my laptop takes a while to start up, and sometimes it freezes or hangs when I'm using resource-intensive programs like Adobe Photoshop or video editing software. I've also noticed that the fans can get quite loud and the laptop can get quite hot.


Can someone tell me how can I troubleshoot this issue?

Laptop Model - HP pavilion

Work on a solid surface so air can circulate underneath
Consider a laptop cooler

Open up the laptop and clean the fan

Consider refreshing the heatsink paste on the processor

Install more RAM so the processor isn't doing as much work
