Fixing a slow computer can be relatively easy once you know how, but in order to fix a slow computer you also need to know why it can be slow in the first place.

Why is my computer slow ?

If your computer is quite new and has very little data on the hard drive then it may be that the only issue causing you to have a slow computer is that you simply do not have enough memory.

Sadly it is common practice for some system vendors to specify systems to a price point and one of the easiest ways to save a few pounds is to give it a small amount of memory, but enough to give it basic functionality.

The customer gets home loads up a few programs (anti-virus for example) and bang …..All of a sudden the computer slows down to a crawl. If this is familiar to you check out our computer memory upgrade page.

Ongoing Computer Maintenance

Like any other machine, with a modern or older Pc, no matter how quick it was when you bought it there is a certain amount of computer maintainance you need to do on an ongoing basis. This ensures that you keep your Pc in tip-top condition and optimise your computer speed. This also help to prolong the life of your computer system.
