I use an HP Pavilion laptop which has Windows 10 on it. Its a model LAPTOP-2JRG6ORL with an Intel Pentium CPU 4415U @ 2.30GHz Processor and installed RAM of 4.00 GB (3.89 GB usable).
NB: I copied all of that blurb from above from the computer as it means literally nothing to me
I use it for internet stuff (websites, looking at Youtube vids,
, internet shopping etc. I don't download or watch catch up or TV on it...aside from putting on BT Sport and running it through an HDMI lead through my TV (as LG smart tellies don't have the BT Sport app installed annoyingly!).
I use it for writing documents - just holiday itineraries, letters etc. I use Libre Office as I'm too tight to pay for MS Office.
I use it to download some pics off my camera just for putting on websites (rare).
I use it for copying documents over off my printer/scanner in case we need to email them.
Now the problem is, is that it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO slow! I regularly get freezes and when I check Task manager it shows that the Disk Space is at 100%. I also regularly get Memory at 100% as well.
EDITED TO ADD: The CPU also regularly shows high numbers on Task manager too!
Firstly is there anything I can do myself to try and improve performance (Please remember I am a complete Luddite when it comes to laptops, IT, computers etc)
Secondly if not, can I take it into a computer shop and get it upgraded somehow or are we looking at a new device? If so what would I ask for?
Thirdly, if I am looking for a new device what should I look out for to ensure I get a good speedy reaction when I use it.
If I can provide any more info to help your answers please let me know (and walk me through it gently) and I'll gladly oblige.
Ta very much
