4 Smart Hacks To Speed Up Your Laptop Performance!by Eva Spenser Innovation
“Has your ageing laptop gotten slower? Follow these surefire hacks to give your laptop a new lease of life.
It is said that “Time Heals All Wounds.” But clearly, that doesn’t apply to the world of computing. Contrarily, it is found that time is the main reason why your laptop experiences hardware slowdowns. With the tick of time; your laptop’s use increases and more files (including some malware software) are downloaded and installed. This puts more stress on your laptop’s limited space and hardware capabilities.
Be it a full-time freelancer or a business enterprise, slow-performing laptops are a bane. Clicking on an application and waiting (repeatedly) mins for it to open is downright annoying for even a level-headed individual. And for those whose work is dependant on their properly functioning laptop, the tempting to pack it and purchase a new one is always there.
But- hold on your laptop... as there are some smart hacks which you can implement to extend its lifespan.
- Limit The Number of Start-up Programs:-
Some programs start automatically when the OS starts. Software manufacturers set their programs to start in the background so that they open right away as you click on their icons.
Though this serves as a benefit in case of those programs which are used frequently, it makes sense limiting those who consumes your laptop’s precious memory and slows down its performance right from the start.
- Use ‘CCleaner’ To Remove Cache, Cookies & Temporary Files:-
You can also run a file scanner to clear out all old existing files or folders, caches, cookies and other temporary files from your laptop. And to do that; you can use CCleaner- which will crawl the laptop’s hard-drive looking for files that have not been used in a while and delete them (after you permit it).
So, Download and install CCleaner, run the application and allow it to pre-fetch data from your system. You can also pick the applications or components which you wish to scan and remove. After one scan, you will see a noticeable boost in your laptop performance.
- Check RAM & Upgrade If Needed:-
You should check your laptop RAM to see if it needs upgrading. Generally speaking, the RAM you need is highly dependent on your current operating system.
If you sense, that you do need to upgrade the RAM; then consult with either the manufacturer or ask a laptop repair technician serving in North Lakes to boost its performance.
- Close Those Programs When They Are Not Used:-
Another surefire hack to speed up your laptop performance is not overworking it whenever you sit down to use it. Many a times; you may be guilty of using your laptop with 5-6 programs open altogether. This slows down your laptop performance considerably.
The wise thing would be to close down all those open programs when they are not in use and only work with those which you currently need use for your work.
Last Words:- If you find that your laptop’s performance doesn’t improve- even after implementing these hacks, take it to a reputed laptop repair shop in Brisbane who will provide you with the right diagnosis to improve its efficiency.
