There is certainly nothing else more irritating on this Earth as compared to a slow PC, particularly in these difficult economic times, when moving out and purchasing a brand new top of the range PC is not likely an alternative. However, there is a lot that can be done by you, to, that will speed up your laptop or computer. We have put together a summary of 5 hints and tips that you can implement easily on your present computer to increase its performance.
• Free up your Hard disk Space
A full hard disk is enough to slow down your PC. Obviously you will not delete your important files and programs to free up your disk space. Therefore you should get rid of temporary internet files as well as temporary files using software called CCleaner. Then open Control Panel and start Disk Defragmenter to consolidate the fragmented files and to enhance the read and write speed of your disk. You can also use the Error Checking option, which will scan all of your drives for bad sectors and any system file errors. After this you will notice a slight quick performance and fast booting.
• Reduce Startup Programs
You should have a look at the number of programs that start automatically when your windows start. If there are too many of them, they will definitely slow down your PC at the time of startup. You should disable these processes to start automatically at the time of startup. You cannot disable all the processes because many of them are essential to run your OS, but you can disable the other unnecessary ones.
• Turning of Visual effects
Windows vista, 7 etc. comes with very advanced and fancy animations and effects. But if your PC or laptop does not have separate dedicated graphics memory, then these graphics will eat up your system memory and will contribute in slowing down your PC. To disable these animations and effects you need to right click on “My Computer” and select Properties option. Then in the new dialogue box you need to click on “Advanced settings” option, then Performance and then Settings. Under the settings option unchecks all the animations and effects options.
• Defragment memory and registry
Cleaning and repairing registry will contribute a lot in improving your PC’s performance. Using registry repair tool compares the data on your registry and data on your hard disk and check whether they are same or not and repairs the errors and faulty entries.
As we install more programs and change settings, the size of registry grows and becomes fragmented. By defragmenting the registry you can restructure the data which allows your computer faster access to the registry whenever needed and speeds up its performance.
• Increasing your system RAM
If you do a lot of multitasking on your computer and you have less RAM installed in your PC, then increasing your RAM to 2 GB or 4 GB is a sensible. You computer slows down when the installed programs are not able find free memory; this problem could be solved by installing more memory in form of RAMs.
We hope these steps will be enough to increase your systems performance. There may be few other problems like spywares or viruses that may be slowing down you computer but you need to contact technicians to solve them.
