PC Workshop received a HP computer tower from a customer in Chapelford with no power whatsoever even though there was a green light showing on the power supply unit (P.S.U.) We fitted a new P.S.U. and the chaps computer was restored to full usage but running far slower than it was capable of!
PC Workshop proceeded to clean out the CPU fan and a thorough clean of the inside of the computer as dust and fluff are a computers enemy when they block up the vital cooling channels that computers require to run efficiently.
We then looked at the start up programmes that where not required and stopped them kicking in until requested, emptied his memory cache and recycle bin and a further few tweaks to the system which gave it a real boost.
Finally PC Workshop added extra memory to really give the system a fillip and its speed was improved by a further 30%.
The customer collected his computer tower an hour or so after he’d dropped it in, more than a little pleased by our efforts to have him functional over the weekend.
If you have a slow running computer or laptop it needn’t cost a fortune to put things right. A bit of TLC works wonders.
