Question and Answer
Q: My wife is pressuring me to buy a new laptop because our little over two year old HP Pavilion with Windows 10 has been "misbehaving" and appears to have a serious problem. Although we use Avast anti-virus, it doesn't find any problems. It's no longer under warranty, so HP can't help. What's frustrating is we'll be using the PC and for no reason it will just hang-up or sometimes shut down on its own and we lose everything. Then it takes minutes to reboot. I've noticed that even Chrome is much slower. It just seems like an old tired system. Any suggestions how to fix our problem or should we buy a new PC?

Driver Tip: Resolving Driver Issues

Whether you have recently installed a device or it came pre-installed, you will definitely have problems if the right driver isn’t installed, or has become corrupted. Here are some of the things you can try to resolve a driver related issue: Restart the computer – Before you do anything, try a simple restart of the computer. Sometimes the computer freezes or gets overwhelmed, and restarting the machine may resolve the problem. Bear in mind that most operating systems require that the computer be restarted after a new installation; otherwise the connected device will not work properly. Disconnect and reconnect the device – Especially if the device is connected via a USB (universal serial bus) port, disconnect it and then plug it in to a different USB port. This will allow the operating system to automatically resolve problems related to minor resource conflicts. If all goes well, the OS will detect the device (assuming it is plug-and-play) and install the correct drivers.
