Improving Your Asus Laptop’s Efficiency

For people who are facing performance issues after upgrading their Asus laptop to Windows 10, here are a few tips that are absolutely worth trying out.

  1. The first and the most suitable way to keep your laptop fast and responsive is to get a system cleaner. Various kind of junk data piles on in no time and results in a painfully slow performing laptop. Use Reginout System Utilities to rid your system of any unnecessary clutter and rescue valuable resources. It also provides options to control which programs start automatically on system bootup as well as providing an option to defrag the Registry, steps which will have a huge positive impact on the system’s performance.
  2. Make sure that the hard drives don’t get all filled up to a dangerous level. Create hard disk partitions intelligently and then keep using Clone Files Checker on a regular basis to remove the duplicate data that might have crept up without you having any idea of it. This is a very common occurrence nowadays and must be taken stock of.
  3. Defragmenting the hard drives is another good idea. As you keep on accessing programs and performing your routine computing tasks, the hard drives get fragmented and the overall “response” time of the laptop slows down. Defrag the hard drives on a monthly basis to sort this issue out.
  4. Another hard disk specific task is checking them for errors. Error do crop up at times and hugely affect the hard disk’s performance. Scan all the hard drives for any errors to ensure they’re healthy and error free. Use the Error-checking facility in the Tools tab of a hard drive’s Properties to do so.
  5. Sometimes various freebie programs get installed in addition to the original program you installed. These programs are of no use to you and are an unnecessary burden on the system. Get rid of them via the Control Panel.
  6. One of the must have programs that you should never take for granted is a decent antivirus software. Install it, update it, activate its real time protection and forget about 99% of the threats online. (100% security can never be guaranteed as newer viruses are created with every passing day.
  7. Make it a habit to regularly update various drivers for hardware devices. This helps them perform to their optimal best, as well as reduces the chances of any inter-device conflicts (which do happens sometimes). Use the Device Manager to update the drivers.
  8. Running too many programs at a time will result in your laptop getting over heated and as a consequence, its performance will be adversely affected. Use the Task Manager to quit any unnecessary programs and reduce the burden on your laptop.

These are just a handful of steps you can perform to make the most of your Asus laptop. All you’ve got to do is keep a tab on the laptop’s health on a regular basis by performing these routine maintenance tasks and your laptop won’t cause an issue, we assure you.
