One of the most common complaints of computer owners is a slow running computer. You go to read an article or play a game and it takes forever to download, pauses and freezes up.

You kind of have the feeling that you have gone back to the age of dinosaur’s and have plugged back into your phone line and dialed right up. Some of you may not even be old enough to remember dial up internet! At the time it was considered the dominate way to connect to the internet. For today’s topic I want to go over a couple more reasons very quickly as to why your computer may slow down.

PC Troubleshooting tip number 1:

So what causes a computer to slow down? There are a few factors that we will go over that you can take preventative measures to keep from happening. One of the most obvious things that will slow down your computer is having a virus.

A virus can be picked up at any web site even at ones that are supposed to be trustworthy. Hackers can attach a virus to any software; look at the Target credit card fiasco! Your best preventative measure is going to be biting the bullet and investing in a good anti-virus program.

Most will help clear up the issue as well as prevent future problems. If this doesn’t work you can feel free to contact me directly.

PC Troubleshooting tip number 2:

Another issue you may be having is that your registry is full or you have corrupted files somewhere in your computer. Everything you do on the computer is doubled and there is saved files and
fragments you don’t even know about.

Your best bet in this case is to download a free copy of CC cleaner, a product I have been using for years. This can be found through a site called file hippo. It fixes registry issues and deletes files
that are not needed; usually I have 200+ megabytes to delete.

The nice thing is that it’s free and it’s automated, for those of us who can maneuver a computer but are not totally savvy at everything.

PC Advice: GET UP & MOVE AROUND: YOUR KILLING YOURSELF

Today I want to talk about a serious topic that many of us actually neglect to remember and do something about it. Sitting down in your chair can be harmful to your health in many ways.

Now you maybe wondering what harm can come from sitting in a little old chair. Well today I will answer that questions for you.

PC Advice number 1: 

If you sit at your desk for more than six hours a day you have increased your chances of getting heart disease. Heart disease is a disorder of the blood vessels in the heart. This can cause plaque buildup in the walls of your arteries making it difficult for blood to flow increasing your risk of heart attack or stroke.

PC Advice

The best of action is to get up and move around

whether it’s just taking a break or partake in

another activity for the time being.

PC Advice number 3: 

Not only is sitting down too long bad for you but also using a keyboard is bad for you as well. Short term effects in sore wrists & long term effects of carpal tunnel.

PC Advice number 4: 

To help lesson the effects of long-term keyboard use you can use an adjustable keyboard & mouse set. This allows for greater ergonomic setup and greatly reduces the chance of injury. With that in mind it would be a good idea to try out a couple different model keyboards before deciding on the right one.

You may want to hold off before spending your heard earned money!

Always keep an eye out for changes in price for that special item you want. Most companies nowadays often have special deals listed on a daily basis.

For today’s topic I want to pose several questions in regards to purchasing new hardware whether it’s necessary to spend money on the latest & greatest of devices.

Computer Advice number 1: Prices rise & fall like the stock market!

If your like me then your constantly checking to see the best deals on on that fancy electronic device. Sometimes that item you’ve been eyeing may receive a price drop when you least expect it.

Whether online or in the stores no one likes to spend more money than they should. The good thing about today’s market is that many brick and mortar businesses are going toe-to-toe with online companies for your business.

Ultimately this is a win-win situation for the consumer. With that said sometimes keep in mind when is the right time to buy.

Computer Advice number 2: Know the right time to buy!

I remember countless times when I have waited till the right moment to purchase an item only to find out later on that the price I paid for dropped even lower than what I initially purchased.

Situations like this can be annoying however it seems supply & demand plays a factor in our purchases of electronics. Typically this may happen a week or two after purchasing an item.

If you take this approach you must have a lot of patience.

Computer repair tip number 3: Patience is a virtue!

Computer Advice

Computer Advice

Patience young padawan patience. Patience is something we all may not have but if you do not mind waiting you will be handsomely rewarded for it. Often times if you see a deal that is too hard to believe or around the estimated price threshold you’ve setup before committing to purchase an item you should jump on the first opportunity to do so.

Sometimes if you miss the opportunity there is a chance a new deal maybe available:however it may not be as good as it was the first time.

PC Information:Desktop Or A Laptop

Do you have trouble deciding which to get!

Today I will help you make that decision!

 

 

 

 

 

Whether or not you are a newbie to computers or an old pro, when purchasing a new computer there is so many options that it can be overwhelming to decide what to purchase.

You will be investing a large amount of money in something that, if taken care of, you will have in your home for a very long time.

The biggest decision you will need to make is whether you are wanting a desk top computer or a portable laptop computer. Let’s go over some of the pros and cons of each and who may do better with one or the other.

To start there is the obvious. A laptop is portable and a desktop is not. However, the newer desktops are so small that they aren’t too bad if they need to take a day trip somewhere.  Energy wise a laptop uses less, however, does not necessarily have as much power as a desktop so if you are a gamer you may be looking for a good desktop.

A desktop also affords more options in screen size, so if you are looking for a bigger screen a desktop may be your best option.

PC Information number 2: 

Students whether in high school or in college are probably going to want a lap top. This will make it much easier to take notes in class and have them all stored in one spot.

It will be much easier to share a printer or use one at the library if need be. It will also be convenient if you are looking to study somewhere other than your dorm room such as the local fast food or coffee shop.

PC Information number 3:

As for price a laptop will cost you more up front and also more to upgrade.  Say you spill a drink on a laptop keyboard; this will force you to purchase an attachable keyboard and possibly cause severe damage to the internal workings of the computer. With a desk top you can move everything and cheaply replace the keyboard. It is also easier and cheaper to make upgrades to other components such as memory and hard drive size.

PC Information number 4: Final Thoughts  

In the end, it is going to be a tough choice for most of us. The best thing you will want to do is do research first. Start with the pointers I gave you and go from there.

Talk to your local computer store sales person (keep in mind they are trying to make money.) As in any large purchase do your research and don’t jump into the purchase on impulse.
