So as discussed earlier there are many ways for which computers may lose its productivity and one of the prime reasons for this is our ignorance. There are simple ways by which you enhance the speed of your devices and if you just follow these few simple instructions, you could actually see a vast difference in the efficiency!
OK in the previous version, I mentioned 5 ways, now let’s look into some more.
Keeping everything up to date
This includes your software itself, graphics driver, and anything you use regularly. Software companies frequently offer new updates and all you need to do is accept them. Now it does sound something you know it on your own but trust me updating software take time and honestly, we are just impatient. Who am I to say, I usually click later or not now till I must have to myself. But think about it, a little delay now would save you from a massive waste of time when your computer is working slower than a turtle who just learned to walk.
Check your power settings, especially on your laptop
The default may be set to balance or maybe power saver which is probably a thing when conserving batteries but I guarantee you it will slow down your computer inevitably. What you can do is change it to high performance when you are plugged in. OK to summarize it change the setting to power saver when you are not plugged in, and when you are, change it back to high performance.
Check your hard drive for errors
You could check the hard drive’s smart health by going to the command prompt and type ‘’WMIC’’ then type “disk drive get status’’ and if they all say ”OK” then it means everything is fine but if it says otherwise, you have to get it fixed or replaced.
Get the basic hard disk errors to be fixed
You can achieve it by again going to the command prompt and type “CHKDSK /F” make sure there is a space before /F. The /F is what would try to find the errors and try to repair errors it can find. It is not applicable for all errors but only a handful of them. And since we are already talking about the hard disk, it is an apparent yet a mandatory thing to mention that it is always wise to back up your hard disk or else you may lose precious files.
Check for memory issues
For this go to search menu and look for windows memory diagnostic. A table would appear where you would want to click the “restart my computer and check for problems” option and off will the computer take you to a blue screened command page. This would automatically start repairing and memory issues that the RAM has got for us.
So now that you know how to “flash up” your computer, you would have a smoother computer experience also earn bragging rights in front of your friends and family.
