    Old laptop with poor performance. Can something be done?


    Hello, I have this older Dell laptop running Windows 10 Pro that is really, really slow. It takes a long time to even open Chrome. Some specs: Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T5750 2 GHz 4 GB DDR2 RAM 333 MHz Intel 965 Express Chipset Internet speed is fast! I've adjusted the appearance and performance to max performance and battery settings to best performance. Can something be done to this computer to speed it up a bit, or is it just this slow. It is currently only used as a server for a couple of devices and once everything is up and running it goes along. But it can take a long time updating, restarting and start servers again.

    :)

    poor performance of laptop

    Hi Manikanta,

    There are several reasons why devices encounter poor performance. It may due to the memory capacity of the hard disk, malware and virus, out-of-date drivers, programs running on background, and some other reasons. There are different ways to solve the performance
    issue depending on what's causing it.

    We'd like to learn more about your concern, so we can determine the best solution. Can you provide the answer to the following questions:

    • What is your device and its specification?
    • Are you using multiple programs at the same time?
    • Is this happening to all programs you open?
    • Is this happening upon start up or just randomly?
    • What type of upgrade did you do to your PC?

    Hope to hear from you soon.
