As technology moves on your computer becomes less and less effective. New releases of software are usually larger in size and require more resources to run effectively. Sometimes a PC health check may free some resources and enable your PC to run faster. However, it may be that a PC hardware upgrade can provide the solution.
Of course, your first option is to purchase a new computer. However, this can be expensive and time consuming. Remember you’ll need to transfer your programs and files from the old one to the new one. And it depends on what you are using your computer for. If you’re a graphic designer or gamer, then you’ll need the latest CPU and hardware. However, if you’ve had your PC for a couple of years and really only use it for saving music, photos, surfing the web and word processing, then an upgrade might be the way forward.
Installing new hardware to increase computer speed
The easiest way to give your PC or laptop a quick boost of speed is to install some more RAM. This is the chip based computer memory you’ll find on the motherboard inside the case. It is a fairly straight forward process and you can buy RAM online or in electronic outlets. But if you’re not comfortable opening up the back of your PC to get to the electronics – we can help. We can examine your PC setup and supply and fit RAM as needed. After we’ve installed it we’ll also do a full reboot and assessment to check that it’s working correctly.
PC & software upgrades
It may be that you want extra functionality from your PC or Laptop. An upgraded graphics card or a TV tuner, for example. In this case, we can inspect your PC and recommend what components need adding to meet your requirements. We can also replace & upgrade motherboards, CPUs, fans, hard drives and install Windows 7, Windows 8 or other operating systems. In some cases if your PC is very old, we might recommend purchasing a new one.
