At some point in the life of a new desktop or laptop PC, its operational speed and overall performance will begin to lag. Inevitably, the operating system and hard drive will become burdened with software applications, games, documents, photographs, music, videos, and background processes that will strip away the original speed of the device in a cumulative manner.
When you bring your old PC to A Plus Computers in Apple Valley, you will have a few service options to choose from in relation to improving performance:
Upgrade and Optimization
Depending on the age of your computer and how much longer you plan on using it, you may want to consider a hardware upgrade to increase the physical RAM and improve functionality with a solid state drive instead of a traditional hard drive. This upgrade can be complemented with optimization options that may include a fresh operating system installation.
Resetting or Reinstalling the Operating System
In modern versions of the Windows operating system, Microsoft has made it easier for users to reset their computers to previous and optimal states; such is the case with Windows 8 and Windows 10, which have a Refresh function. Windows 10 goes one step further with its Reset option, which is similar to the reset button found in Android tablets.
Hardware upgrades and reinstalling Windows are not always necessary. The A Plus Computers Optimization Package consists of an analysis and remediation of startup procedures, background processes, archived files, registry issues, page file configuration, and power management settings. In some cases, your hard drive may need to be defragmented; moreover, you may not realize that malware and adware scripts could be slowing down your system. This optimization service is often chosen by computer owners who want an affordable solution; however, upgrades are highly recommended.
