Over time, your computers can slow down, and act sluggish can often be attributed to an adequate hardware. There are some steps that you can take to help speed up your computer’s performance when it seems like its running slower than when it was new.
First step you can do and the cheapest are adding more RAM to the computer. Check to see if you have a 32-bit or 64-bit computer. The 32-bit maximum RAM is 4 GB, the 64-bit maximum RAM is 192 GB on a Windows 7 computer, nobody uses that much on a computer only servers, 8 to 16 GB is fine on the computer upgrading to an 8 gigabytes more RAM is about a hundred dollars. This can give your computer a second wind and is considered a cost-effective investment.
However, since the installation involves messing with the hardware a little, and it’s easy to get confused when choosing between different types of RAM, it’s best to leave the installation to an expert or repair person.
This next step you can do is upgrade to a solid-state disk (SSD) drives, use non-volatile flash memory. Because there are no actuator arm and read/write head like on a hard disk drive (HDD), they are faster in reading and, in most cases, writing data.
Solid-state disk (SSD) drives, cost about 3x the price of a hard disk drive (HDD), so if price is not an issue sacrificing storage capacity for speed and performance is a good trade-off.
For spending a little bit of money you can increase the performance of your computer and keep the computer for a few more years..
