Q : What can I do to make my computer faster

A : There are a couple of ways you can speed up your computer, software, and hardware.

Software :

These solutions will only improve the performance back to the speed the computer was when first purchased.

1/ Stop any unnecessary programs from loading when your computer boots. A certain amount of expertise is required for this as the regedit program is required. Incorrect use of this program may damage your system. If you are unsure get a professional to do it for you.

2/ Defragment your hard drives, using the defragment program provided with your operating system.

Hardware Solutions:

One of the quickest ways to speed up your PC is to add memory (RAM). Very often budget PC’s are sold with a minimum amount of RAM, increasing this up to the maximum the operating system / hardware can yield excellent performance increases.

Replacing your hard drive is another way to increase the performance of your system. The primary purpose of replacing your hard drive though, is normally to add storage space. New hard drives are normally larger, and faster than older drives.

If you are looking for more performance you may be able to put a larger CPU into your machine, if not you are probably looking at a major overhaul.
