Easy Way to Make your Old Laptop Increase Speed
Your Laptop just started acting slow, you tried to give some technicians to look at it after they have fixed the laptop, it starts acting back to normal for a while or some days l can say?
After losing a lot of money to these Tech Gurus, you are now thinking of buying a new laptop with magnificent specifications. Wait before you do that, we have just figured out the best way to upgrade your Laptop and enjoy super speed.
There are some many reasons why your Laptop turns out to be slow, it might the processor, the Random-Access Memory (RAM), too many running applications, viruses and your Hard Drive. Its just a combination of many factors.
l just discovered that there are only two major reasons why your laptop/Computer are slow. The first reason will be the amount of RAM you have plugged in on your PC’s motherboard and secondly the type of Hard Drive you have.
For RAM, one has to add more RAM chips on your laptop, if you had 2gb to need to add another 2gb RAM chip to your lovely Laptop/Computer. As for the hard drive you need to replace that type of Drive to another one, this is where my focus is.
l introduce you to Solid-State Drive (SSD), An SSD does functionally everything a hard drive does, but your data is instead stored on interconnected flash memory chips that retain the data even when there’s no power present.
How Does SSD differ from the ordinary Hybrid Hard Drive?
On an SSD there are no moving parts information is stored in microchips just like your memory cards and Flash drive disks. It is more likely to keep your data safe in the event you drop your laptop bag or your system is shaken.
Once the hard drive is dropped or shaken chances are high that you will lose some of your data, why, because of its platter, but each side of it has a magnetic coating.
Conversely, a hard disk drive uses a mechanical arm with a read/write head to move around and read information from the right location on a storage platter.
Platters rotate at up to 10,000 revolutions per minute (rpm) so the read-write heads can access any part of them.
If you are concerned with speed this is what l recommend SSD. An SSD-equipped Laptop/PC will boot in less than a minute, and often in just seconds. A hard drive requires time to speed up to operating specifications and will continue to be slower than an SSD during normal use.
Laptops with SSD boots faster, launches and runs apps faster, and transfers files faster.
“Whether you’re using your computer for fun, school, or business, the extra speed may be the difference between finishing on time and failing.” Noted Pcmag
My best part of on how SSD functions are that none of the energy consumed is wasted as friction or noise, rendering them more efficient. On a desktop or in a server, that will lead to a lower energy bill. On a laptop you’ll be able to eke out more minutes/ hours) of battery life.
