How to improve your computer?
For a gamer, and often for any PC or laptop user, the question arises, how to improve the computer, increase productivity and launch a new game or program without slowing down.
On how to increase the performance of your laptop, you can read in detail in our article How to improve your laptop ?.
And the methods for the personal computer will be discussed below.
How to improve performance by changing the "Iron"
The fastest and easiest way is alwaysreplacing the computer with a more powerful one. But not always such an action is beneficial from a financial standpoint. Some things like CPU and RAM often remain very relevant for a very long time and do not make sense to change them. In this case, it is better to do the replacement of individual components.
The processor should be changed only if the new one is at least 30% more powerful. Otherwise, the difference will be insignificant.
The crooks can try to overclock the processor. This will increase its performance quite significantly, but it is necessary to understand this matter. Otherwise, the processor will just burn.
With RAM everything is much easier than withother accessories. It can simply be added to the free slot of the mother memory if necessary. Today the memory is quite cheap and it does not take a lot of finances.
Replacing the Hard Drive
The hard disk should be changed to a faster one. You can understand this by looking at the spindle speed per second. The bigger, the better. This will increase the speed of data processing.
Replacing the video card
The video card should only be changed to increaseperformance in games. But it is important to understand that a powerful video card uses a processor for processing data, and, hence, the processor should be good.
How to improve the computer using cleaning and repair
It often happens that the inside of the insidecomputer clogged with dust and dirt, which affects the heating of components and work. In this case, you can gently open the lid of the unit and vacuum without touching the entrails, but it is important to disconnect the power from the computer completely.
In case of malfunctions of some systemsthe performance of the computer can also fall. For example, if the cooling system fails, the inside of the unit may become warm and hence the computer's performance will become slower. To restore the computer speed, you will have to take the unit to repair.
How to improve the quality of work programmatically
In addition to direct intervention in the interiorsystem unit, you can improve performance by software. Manipulating some parameters and OS systems, there is an opportunity to speed up the computer. How to improve the speed of your computer, we'll look at several subsections.
Files are usually written to the hard diska lot of pieces and often in different places. This leads to the fact that the slider of the spindle rotates repeatedly in different planes to provide the necessary information on the pieces. To reduce the performance of the hard disk and increase the speed of reading, you can defragment the disk. This process collects all the information on pieces and places it in one area.
However, in order to carry out this process,have at least 30% free space. Lack of sufficient space also causes a decrease in computer performance. If there is less than 1 GB of free space on the hard disk, this will lead to a significant drop in the speed of work.
Reinstall Windows and select the optimal OS
If you have been using the OS for a long time, then there is a largethe likelihood that software "tails" from games and other programs will slow down the performance of Windows. This affects the speed of work. You can just reinstall the OS.
The choice of OS also affects the speed of work. For example, having 2GB of RAM in the block, you can go to Windows 7 or 8, which will increase the performance. If you have 4 GB of RAM, the choice in favor of 64-bit OS will significantly increase the speed of the computer. It's also better not to use different OS assemblies, which contain a bunch of unnecessary programs. They will brake the system. Make a choice in favor of clean OS, and you can always install the program yourself.
Using the operating system optimizer programs
How to improve the speed of your computer with programs, written a lot of instructions. There are a lot of such optimizer programs. Everyone has some good solutions and drawbacks.
One such good program is the utilityPCMedic, which allows you to optimize your computer just by selecting your OS from the list. However, it is important to create a system restore point before any changes. The program can also put in the trash files that it deems superfluous on the computer. Look carefully at them before deleting. Often in the basket are very important files.
Disabling unnecessary services and programs from autorun
You can also disable programs from AutoPlay,which you do not use. You can find their list in the task manager on the "Startup" tab. But it is necessary to know which program is responsible for what. You can always include these programs back.
You can also disable the antivirus that isessentially loads the system. For example, Kaspersky downloads a computer very much at all times. But then your PC will be without protection before the viruses. There is also the possibility to replace a heavy antivirus with a simpler and faster one like NOD 32.
