Ways to Make Your Computer Last Longer

Keep it current

Look before you click when you install any software

Most people make this common mistake and sometime it might cost them to fix the issue. How many time have just click “Yes” & “Next” without reading the message on the screen? In most cases, you will be fine but if you downloaded some software contain malware, then you might put yourself at risk.   

Make Sure You Have Enough RAM and Hard Drive Space

There are 3 main components – RAM (random access memory used for active programs) and your hard drive (used for things you store like videos, documents, and pictures) And CPU (the brain that does all the calculation and executing commands). Having a fast CPU doesn’t make it run faster, you need other components to make the system work.  If you got a good deal on a computer, it’s likely they gave you the bare minimum of memory and hard drive space. You can upgrade memory fairly easily, and your computer will run faster and last longer.
