    Windows 7 computer heats up quickly and takes a long time to open even light weight applications

    Hi everybody.I am facing some problem with my laptop. Its configuration is Intel Core i5,2 GB RAM,and it runs windows 7,32-bits. The problem is, it heats up very quickly and sometimes,it slows down and takes a long time to open even a lightweight applications like Microsoft word. It even restarts frequently. I searched for answers online and many said it could be possible that my PC is infected with a virus. But the problem persists even though I have kaspersky internet security Installed.I would be very thankful to you if you could help me in solving this issue.

    Hi,

    The problem with your computer is of many types which are explained later.

    1. You are using a version of Windows 7 which is 32 bit. You possibly need to upgrade to 64 bit to be more inline, as the 64 bit version can address programs faster, though it is not mandetory.
    2. Your computer has Core i5 processor which is relatively fast processor, but you have only 2 GB RAM, which cant perform as quick as the processor performs due to its capacity crunch. Think about that, if you can add some RAM.
    3. The processor is getting hot due to poor ventilation and that ensures poor performance, even if this continues the processor can get damaged due to overheating.
    Contact the service center and install additional fan for the CPU and ventilate well.

    Thanks.

    Dear Friend!!
    This is not any software problem.
    This is your hardware problem.One thing you can try is that increase the an speed of processor.
    and also never keep the laptop on your thighs(legs).
    You have to go to control panel,then power option, there you have to change settings in advanced option.
    go to processor power managements, then to processor cooling.make that active.
    and done!
