Stop Gaming Boredom by Speeding up your Slow PC

Waiting for a PC to start up can be frustrating to say the least. You may even find yourself being bored at the weekend because you feel as though you just have nothing to do and that you also can’t play the games you want. If this sounds like you then you have nothing to worry about, it’s easier than ever for you to speed up your PC if you follow this guide.

Uninstall some Games

Whenever you buy a new PC, there is a high chance that there are tons of programs that are pre-installed on there. Old computers have a habit of accumulating games over time, and a lot of the time you will never end up using them. Some may even run in the background without you knowing and all of this will slow down your computer far more than you realise. If you want to remove these programs, then the only thing that you need to do is go to Start and then to Control Panel. When you have done this, you can then go to Programs and Features.

Delete Temporary Files

Whenever you use a browser such as Internet Explorer, your browsing history will stay on your PC. The same thing will happen whenever you install something. This is very similar to buying a new TV and then never throwing away the packaging. You can save some space if you get rid of the thing that you don’t need, so keep that in mind. If you want to free up space, then open up My Computer and then choose your main drive. You can then click on the Windows folder and then inside, you will see a folder called Temp. From there, you can then delete your temporary files.

Solid State Drive

If your PC feels as though it takes a very long time to turn on, then your hard drive might be at fault. Typically, your hard drive will have a lot of moving components and this can mean that it takes a long time to fire up.  You shouldn’t need to worry about your drive if you play games online. If you want to play online games over downloadable games so you can free up your drive then why not play Thunderstruck 2?

Get More HDD Space

It doesn’t matter how much you try and keep your computer tidy because if your hard drive gets too full then this will almost certainly affect the speed of your computer. If you use your system for heavy tasks, such as recording video or media then there is a chance that your drive will get full before you know it. In this day and age, you can get mega storage drives that can give you access to terabytes of data, which is the equivalent of thousands of movies.

Get Way More Ram

Have you ever noticed that when you try and work a lot of applications at once, such as your email or even your internet, your computer struggles to flick between them? If this is the case, then there is a high chance that your RAM is to blame.
