How to make my laptop faster

My computer is very slow

One of the most frustrating experiences that a user can face, is to find a PC that runs very slow, this is a situation that often occurs in laptops, which usually include a mechanical disk of low speed, and a very fair amount of RAM memory for the needs of the current software. We have prepared this post to explain how to make your laptop run faster.

To answer this question, we first need to understand how hard disks and RAM work. The hard drive is the place where all the information inside a PC is stored, it is a non-volatile storage device, which means that the data is not lost when the power goes out, otherwise it would be a real disaster as you can all imagine.

Hard disks have a very high capacity, hundreds of Gigabytes or even several Terabytes so we can store a lot of information on them.  The problem with hard disks is that they are very slow, this means that the processor cannot work depending on the hard disk to obtain the information it needs to operate. This is where RAM comes into play, a storage medium hundreds of times faster than the hard disk. The current RAM memory is an intermediate pool between the hard disk and the processor, where the data most used by the processor is stored so that it can access them much faster.

One of the basic rules to make your computer run faster is to uninstall those programs or applications that you are no longer using. Think that everything you accumulate causes the system to have to manage a lot of content and, therefore, does not work smoothly. Thus, it is essential to have only the applications, programs or files that you are going to use. It is useless to have Photoshop installed if we use it only once every three months. For these cases, the best thing to do is to have an external hard disk and have them saved here to use them when we need them.

We also advise you to schedule cleanings so that things don’t keep piling up. This way, you won’t have to work so hard to do them. Set one day a month to delete everything you don’t want to have or save it on an external drive.

Another option is to install a program like CCleaner, which will help you clean all kinds of useless files that are taking up space on your computer. If you wish you can combine both at the same time.

SSDs (Solid State Drives) are data storage devices that do not have mechanical or magnetic parts like traditional HDDs (Hard Disk Drives). SSDs use a ‘flash’ memory, similar to RAM memory boards or storage systems for smartphones or tablets. The advantages of having an SSD are many.

The write and read speed is far superior to that of HDDs. It can be multiplied by 10 because, unlike mechanical hard disks, they do not incorporate platters that must move at a constant speed nor do they have a head that moves across these platters to read the stored data.

Another advantage is that by not having to move different platters there is no heating in the drive and its power consumption is much lower. And since they are not composed of moving parts, they are more resistant to falls and shocks, one of the pending subjects of HDDs.

More and more users are opting for combined systems in their computers that include an SSD drive on which the operating system is installed, the software that we want to run faster. On the traditional hard disk we can install other programs that do not require great performance.

We are going to explain how to recover the speed of a computer that has become slow. We are going to do it with 15 tips to speed up your computer, ranging from the most basic systems of the operating system to other changes a little more complex in configurations that are not so accessible.

When a computer starts Windows, it has to load all the elements of the desktop, so if yours is low on resources it is possible that it will have a hard time if you have it full of shortcuts. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep your computer’s desktop as clean as possible. If there are things that you really need to have accessible, you can try simply creating a folder on the desktop and putting them all there.

There are applications that when you install them set themselves to run automatically when the computer starts up, and having too many of them can slow down the startup of the computer. To prevent this from happening, press Control + Alt + Delete and choose the Task Manager option. In it, click on More details to access all the information.
