Many of the software related problems that users face are similar or identical to the ones that conventional desktop or PC users face. The solutions are therefore more or less similar and it may require the same kind of resolution.

Some of the more frequently encountered software issues in laptops are:

Slowdowns or loading failures: This is one of the most easily recognizable problems, since every laptop user is familiar with the speed and time-duration that his/her machine works at on a daily basis. You could also get an error message when you try to load certain programs. There may be file system errors or your laptop could be corrupted by virus or malware attacks. Inadequate memory space is another common issue in laptops which leads to slowdown.

Crashes: A program may crash while you're using the laptop. This may or may not respond to the Cntl+Alt+Del process. Sometimes restarting the system could help. However if you're getting the infamous Blue Screen Of Death, then you have a major issue on your hands as the OS itself has crashed.

Strange behavior: Certain normal programs may start behaving in unexpected ways. This is usually related to a virus attack and hence getting a thorough disinfectation and clean-up done is your best option.

Error Messages: If you're getting these, make a note of the exact number and wording of the message so that you can convey this to your technician and they will be prepared with the right solution when they arrive to help you.

Compatibility Issues: Laptop models and software versions are changing by the hour and sometimes older systems and configurations are simply not compatible with newer ones, leading to reduced system capability. Adding new applications, playing newer versions of games and upgrading existing programs may be creating compatibility issues.

Excess Clutter/Memory Problems: This is a very common problem, as users tend to load up their laptops with all kinds of unwanted and unusable stuff without really considering space issues. It is a good practice to regularly do some house-keeping and de-clutter your systems. Fragmenting your drives will also improve performance.

Internet connectivity: This is another big issue for laptop users, especially since they transport the system to multiple locations. This is also the route by which spyware, malware and viruses can encroach into your system.

Based on the above, you can do your own troubleshooting if you are confident enough or you can take the services of a qualified laptop repair service.
