computer runs all the time now

Recommended Posts

To start off with up front, I am computer illiterate. My HP laptop is approx 3 yrs old now. Its been a super computer and still performs well. I hardly ever heard it running till the last few weeks. It runs ALL the time now! I cant find anything running in the background and the only time it stops or slows down is when I put it to sleep. Why is it constantly running now? Any help on the matter would great. Thnx

Hola @carver and :wpcm:

 

I'm assuming what you're hearing is the fan. Considering it's 3yrs old, you might try using canned air to blow the dust from the cooling system. To do this, power it down and blow into the exhaust, you'll likely get dust bunnies out of the fan.

Hope this helps,
