Here’s How To Get a Better Performing Desk Top Computer In Australia.

here’s how to get a better performing desk top computer in australia.

There is absolutely no doubt that there are literally thousands of Australians screaming at their desktop computers right now because they are running too slow and they won’t function properly. It can be incredibly frustrating having a PC that won’t do what you want it to do but in the vast majority of cases, it’s because you haven’t done something or you’re not using the right kind of equipment to encourage faster speeds. Many people leave applications open while they work on other things and this is their first big mistake. If you have too many pages loading at one time then your computer will slow down and the processing speed will decrease as a direct result.

It is up to you then to invest in all of the equipment to make sure that your computer is operating like it should be and with this in mind, many Australians overlook the vast importance of using the right kind of quality HDMI cable. This is constantly overlooked and people opt for the cheap and nasty option rather than spending a little bit more money and getting quality every single time. This is just one way to get your desktop computer performing better and the following are just some others.

  • Allow updates to load automatically – If you check the settings on your computer, it’s likely that updates are being delayed by a week or more and so you need to turn off this option so that your PC gets the right kind of updates when it needs them the most. These updates are generally referred to essential software and it allows your computer to work faster for longer. You can’t expect your computer to be running fast and to be functioning at its optimum if you aren’t allowing it to download essential updates. If you think that you may be missing out on some of them, use your search bar and type in updates and any that you are missing will begin to download immediately.
  • Turn off start-up programs – When you download certain applications and you agree to the terms and conditions, you are usually allowing these same apps to start up when your computer starts up every single time. This means that it takes forever for you to be able to use your computer at the beginning of any working day and this can be incredibly frustrating as well. Once again, you need to find out what apps are starting up and turn off the ones that you don’t immediately need.
  • Sort out all of your junk – There are certain applications that will clean out your computer once a week and it removes all of the files that you are no longer using or you have not used in some time. It will also help to clear away anything that you have deleted over the course of the week and that helps with your computer’s working performance. This frees up your hard drive so that you have more memory to work with and allows your desktop computer to work more efficiently and that can only be seen as a very positive thing.
  • Start uninstalling some programs – You just need to take the time to figure out what are the programs that you have used on a regular basis and what are the ones that you haven’t used in maybe even a few years. The ones that you hardly ever use need to be removed because these are definitely slowing down your computer. You can actually see the dates of when the programs were last used and so you can make an informed decision based on this. Remove anything that you have not been using in the last six months and don’t worry, because you can always download the same programs again any time that you need them in the future.

Another thing that you might want to consider is to change the power settings on your computer because this affects its performance. You need to do whatever you can to protect your battery and so choosing the save energy option is a good choice here. Try to keep the air vents on your computer free of dust at all times and it is so cheap and easy to invest in a can of air that you can use to blow out the vents and other places. Try to keep your PC cool and so whenever the option is available, let lots of airflow through the room.
