  1. Settings to make my "school laptop" faster?


    Hiya, so I have a laptop provided by my internship since I don't have my own. It's an Lenovo IdeaPad S145.

    I'm not doing much. I just use Google Chrome since we're mostly working on the Google Suite. I feel like this laptop can get pretty slow to the point where I'm afraid of opening Microsoft Office because it freezes up.

    Since this is a school laptop, I'm assuming it's fresh. Only thing I downloaded were Chrome and Slack. I don't plan on gaming (even if I did, this Laptop feels weak.). I have Tab Suspender on my Chrome, which is an extension that will suspend tabs if I don't use it for 30 minutes. It's so that if I have a lot of research tabs open, it won't use up a lot of resources.

    I made it so the battery is on "Best Performance" and I undocked Cortana from the taskbar.

    I still feel a sense of slowness at times and I was wondering what other settings should I consider?

    It depends if your school has blocked access for setting up on mobile device email clients. Contact your school or ask an instructor if they have a step-by-step guide to setup up on a mobile client if allowed.

    AMD FX OC'ers Club

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
