Upgrade the memory
You might have installed superb games and good applications on your laptop and there would have been enough memory space for those programs. But if the laptop memory is just about sufficient to run these applications, the system will gradually slow down and the performance will eventually degrade. Make sure you have more than the required memory to install high quality games and applications. It will ensure the smooth running of your system. Upgrade the RAM if necessary.
Clean up the secondary memory
The hard disk will be full of unwanted files and remnants of old ones. The secondary memory is prone to a lot of errors due to the addition and removal of components and programs. Clean your hard disk once in a while. You can use tools like disk defragmenter and disk cleanup to clean it. Defragment the hard drive to combine the pieces of files that are scattered, thereby improving the speed.
The display of the laptop consumes high amounts of power. Check the screen settings including resolution and brightness from time to time. If you are to do office work, reset the settings to minimum. You can later change this when you want to watch a movie. This will ensure that your laptop does not consume additional power. Make sure the battery of the system is good and ensure there is no leakage or additional heating occurring with the battery.
