As important as your PC is to your work and everything else in your life, you need to take care of it. Proper maintenance is vital for its longevity, and if it breaks down, you’ll have to replace it and may lose data. Here are three tips to improve the performance and extend the life cycle of your PCs.
Keep it Clean
Dust can build up in your PC’s air vents and prevent critical airflow. Limited airflow means heat builds up, leading to overheating and potentially damaging internal components. Keep your workspace clean and blow out vent fans periodically with compressed air.
Monitor RAM Usage
RAM is the memory in your computer that allows you to perform multiple tasks at the same time. If your computer is running slower than normal, open Task Manager to see where your PC’s resources are being used and shut down anything unnecessary. If your PC has insufficient RAM, you won’t be able to run multiple videos or perform other resource-intensive tasks. You may be able to add RAM for smoother operation.
Install Updates and Patches
Update firmware frequently to get the latest patches and security updates. It’s a simple way to ensure that your devices won’t be compromised by developing threats, and it’s usually free.
