Tired of waiting for your PC to respond?

Let's get right to the point! A slow computer is one of the most frustrating things to deal with on a day to day basis. Everything from waiting for your pc start to checking your email is always so slow, that you want to fall asleep before the task is complete. Well there is gooiStock-1021542770.jpgd news! There is an easy upgrade that fixes a majority of the reasons that a PC is functioning slowly. 

The HDD or (Hard Disk Drive) is a critical component of your PC. Your HDD is used each time you turn on your PC, access a file, or run a program. This can wear them down over time making their read and write rates degrade over time. 

You can now solve this by cloning its contents to a SSD (Solid State Drive). Unlike a HDD, the SSD does not have moving parts which helps speed up the amount of time it takes to access your information. In fact, the SSD can read and write about 8X faster that your traditional HDD. 

The increased speed helps boot time and also make the computer feel much faster overall. 

XpertPC+ has been successfully cloning drives to help better performance as well as gain a little more life on some 3-4 year old desktops and laptops! In most cases, the work can be completed with same day service. Call us today to find out if this is a good solution for your slow desktop or laptop. 

Tune Up Tips Vol.4 : Central Processing Unit (CPU)

Tune Up Tips Vol 4 : Central Processing Unit (CPU)

Well now it’s time for the most expensive side of the upgrade scale. This is one of the hardest upgrades to complete because there is so much involved. The first bit of data that you need is whether or not your current motherboard can accept a new or more powerful processor. This is based on socket type, cpu voltage, and bios support.

When do you know if you need a CPU upgrade? Well if the computer seems to be chugging along you can open up the Task Manger as discussed in our previous post. In the performance tab you can check out how your CPU is handling what you are throwing at it.

If the motherboard can accept a better performing processor then you may be in luck. The new AMD Ryzen series is a great example. You can build a base computer with a Ryzen 3 processor, yet the same motherboard may take a Ryzen 5 or better yet a Ryzen 7.

A new CPU can run anywhere between $150 and $1200.  While this generally improves performance, we recommend you read our blogs on upgrading SSD, RAM and graphic cards first since they tend to provide more noticeable benefits at a cheaper cost. 

Really what it comes down to is making sure that all of your hardware is compatible. Normally if you have the model of your motherboard, a PC repair shop such as ours (XpertPc+) can recommend the best CPU that your motherboard can support. Be sure to always check the system requirements to make sure that your PC or Laptop can keep up!
