We’ve all been there. Waiting impatiently for a computer to start up or to open a new program can be excruciating. Computers are supposed to be faster than we are, right? Some of you out there – you know who you are – are screaming, “Yeah, right! My computer hates me.” When your computer is slow or slower than you expect, you’ll do anything to make it speed up.
Good news: there are things that you can do to improve the speed of your computer in certain situations. Depending on whether your computer is slow to start up, or perhaps is slow to save changes or open new programs, there are solutions. Most of the time, it is simply about configuring your computer in an optimal way.
Here are some main causes of slowness:
- Too many processes happening all at once
- Too little RAM (random access memory)
- Errors in your hardware or memory
- Viruses or malicious software or processes
Again, there are some things you can do to speed up your computer. Try these. At the very least, you’ll have a more optimal setup. And you can apply one or all of these solutions no matter how slow or fast your computer is running.
Please note: The following helpful hints apply to people using PCs. If you’re an Apple user, well, apparently you should never have ANY problems, right? (That’s the rumor, anyway).
