Things That Will Make Your Computer Run Slow

Things That Will Make Your Computer Run Slow Over a Period of Time

One or more of the following cause laptop, netbooks, or notebook computers to run slow over a period of time.
  • Corrupt data
  • Missing Windows updates
  • Outdated software drivers
  • Overheating
  • Corrupt Operating System
  • Not Enough RAM memory
  • Hard disk drive space
  1. You want at least 200-500MB of free hard disk drive space. This available space allows the computer to have room for the swap file to increase in size as well as room for temporary files.
  2. Run "Defrag" to help ensure that data is arranged in the best possible order.Background programs
  3. If you've got an anti-virus scanner on the computer, spyware, malware protection program, or other internet security utility make sure it's not scanning your computer in the background. One program that will perform both tasks is sufficient. Be sure to set up a schedule so that it runs automatically.
Computer motherboard overheating
Make sure your computer and processor is not overheating, excessive heat can cause a significant decrease in computer performance some processors will even lower the speed of the processor automatically to help compensate for the heat related issues. If ignored, it will cost more in the long run to recover from a damaged motherboard. Sensitive components located on the system board usually are the first to fail as a result of overheating. Constricting proper air flow to your computer can also cause a computer to overheat.
Make sure your computer case and exhaust fans are not obstructed and free of dust.
Resolve any hardware issues as they could be the cause of your problem.
Finally, if your computer continues to be slow after going over each of the above recommendations it's possible that your computer is experiencing a more serious hardware related issue such as a failing component in the computer. This could be a failing or bad hard drive, CPU, RAM, motherboard, or a combination of the above.
Check with your local computer repair shop if you need further assistance to correct any of the above.

Great Service!

My laptop screen was accidentally cracked while I was on my way home for Christmas break from college. Laptop Repair was extremely helpful. They gave me the college student discount, and the price was very reasonable, especially compared to the other options I had found for repairing my screen. I highly recommend going to them for your laptop repairs, as Rudy and Gloria not only are very knowledgeable and skilled but are great to work with.

I dropped off my laptop here for an AC adapter with a broken pin. Not only was my laptop fixed quickly, but they were also able to quickly retrieve files that I needed while waiting for the laptop repairs to completed. The service is very professional, and Gloria and Rudy are very courteous.
