Speeding Up Your Computer

Computers cost a lot of money, so it is logical that we want them to work fast. The more money we spend on them, the faster we want them to work. If so your computer is sluggish, here is what you can do:

  • Loose cables, not properly attached RAM, or other computer components can make your computer unstable. You can reattach the cables, RAM, and clean any dust from your PC.
  • Too many programs running at startup can be a reason for a computer to slow down. This happens when you install many programs, and you do not really observe whether they start at startup. After some time, you have so many programs loading, that it can drastically reduce performance and increase boot time. You can switch off some programs which you do not need, by going to Start-> Run -> Writing “msconfig” -> clicking OK, and deselecting some programs from the startup tab.
  • Buying new components. That costs money, and depends if you want to buy new components every year or two years. In my opinion, it is better to first check what you can do about your sluggish computer without spending any money on it before you actually start spending your money. Buying new parts should be your last resort.
