How do I speed up my computer?

1. Check for viruses and malware: Run scans with your preferred virus scanner to check your computer for any malicious software that might be causing your computer to slow down.

2. Close unnecessary programs: Many programs run in the background, such as music streaming services or online chat platforms. You can close these programs to help speed up your computer.

3. Free up disk space: Unnecessary files and programs take up valuable disk space, leading to a slower computer. Regularly clean out your temporary files and delete any unneeded programs.

4. Update your operating system and drivers: Outdated software can lead to performance issues. Make sure your computer is running the latest version of its operating system. Additionally, update your device drivers regularly.

5. Change power settings: Many computers come with a power saving feature, which can lead to a slower machine. Change the power settings to “High Performance” for the best performance.

6. Install a faster hard drive: If your hard drive is full and/or old, it could be slowing down your computer. Consider upgrading your hard drive to a faster model to improve performance.

7. Add more memory (RAM): Installing more RAM can help improve the speed and performance of your computer. Consider adding an extra RAM stick if you have room on your motherboard.
