Surely you have experienced an application suddenly not responding. This problem must have occurred due to several reasons. Applications not responding can be caused by hardware or software problems, here are common problems that cause applications not responding on laptops:

Not Responding

Many Applications Opened

The application that is opened is too heavy

Before installing an application, you must pay attention to the specifications of the laptop or computer that you have, whether it meets the needs of the application so that it can run. For example, a minimum of 2GB of RAM is required for applications to run their jobs, but your device only has 1GB of RAM. As a result, the application cannot run. The solution to this problem is to uninstall the inappropriate application so it doesn’t cause unresponsiveness.

The application has a problem

Damage in the application can also make the application not respond to commands. Usually the problem is caused by a virus, crash, or misuse. To overcome this not responding application is to reinstall the application.

Problem computer system

A problematic computer system can also be the root of the application not responding. A common cause is contracting a virus. Usually, if the virus is acute, the laptop will be very slow to open applications or windows explorer. The solution to this problem is to clean your laptop or computer from viruses. After that, reinstall the computer operating system.


Excessive heat on a computer or laptop can make the laptop hang frequently. If you try to open several applications, it will definitely be not responding. This overheating problem can occur due to damage to the fan or clogged exhaust dust. The solution to this problem is to clean your computer or laptop from dust. After that you can add cooling paste on the laptop heatsink. If possible, use an additional external fan on the bottom of the laptop.
