PostSubject: Why computer maintenance is important?   Sat Aug 11, 2018 9:46 pm

Regular computer maintenance is required for keeping your pc alive & healthy. So here's the following reasons why maintaining of computers are important:


Early Detection of Issues
                            Computers can be temperamental, and we all know that small issues can become huge problems before we know it. But, having regular maintenance check done on your computer can eradicate small issues before they become big problems. Small issues can crop up at any time.

Backup
                            How important is your data? The more important your data is to you the more you back it up. Generally a once a month backup solution works for most people. However, all critical files should be backed up as regularly as you change them.

Updated software
                            To keep your business looking sharp and safe, you should always keep your computer software updated. This is especially important for computers used by employees who work with customers. Updated software also helps prevent issues with viruses and malware. To avoid interruptions for maintenance, it is wise to schedule updates for a time when employees are out of the office.

Clean Monitors
                             The monitor can be dusted off with a cloth and screens cleaned with a glass cleaner and cloth.

Speed up Your Computer
                              Nothing can be more frustrating than a computer that processes too slowly. But, as most of us can attest, over time our computers get clogged up with files and everything gets disorganized and fragmented. The result is slow processing times. Computer maintenance techs are experts at running speed and optimization checks that can pinpoint issues and keep your computer running at an optimal speed.

Prevent Data Loss
                             Although data loss is uncommon, if it does happen, it can wreak havoc on your life. When your computer starts running slowly or begins having occasional hiccups, it can require a system reboot that can ultimately result in lost data. However, keeping your computer maintained will lessen the likelihood of these instances and keep your data safe and secure for when you need to access it.

Maintain Data Integrity
                              At least once a month you should check your hard drive for errors by using two simple solutions. The first thing you are going to do is a defragment of the hard drive. When you use data on your computer on a regular basis the data gets fragmented across your entire hard drive. While you may be seeing one MP3 file your computer sees bits and pieces of this file that may be spread out across your entire hard drive.


Any questions regarding regular computer maintenance? Comment down below.

You should always run an antivirus software if your PC suddenly starts to experience performance issues. If it starts to crash or slowdown while performing normal tasks that it has never before had trouble with, then you may have a virus or a malware functioniong. But of course, prevention is better than cure. You may scan your pc every time you seat in the front of your computer.

Opinion ko lang. Mas okay anti virus ng os mismo kase yung ibang 3rd party na anti virus may trick na akala mo lang may virus tapos irerequire ka nya pagamitin yung App nya kaya mas malaki consuming ng time tapos puro ads pa. Opinion ko lang

It's your choice to install third party antivirus software for your laptop or personal computer but i think it is important to install third party antivirus software. It keeps safe your system from any virus, also it is very important to secure your system from any zero day threat and rising virus attacks such as Ransomware & malware attacks.

Hi Glocell! To answer your question, to understand how a disk becomes fragmented is to imagine me who’s in charge of filing documents within several cabinets. Whenever you, a worker or a student, need to file or take out a report, 'I go through you.' Defragmenting a disk is a well-known way of getting a computer to act faster. However, it’s not self-explanatory as to what it actually does. By using a defragmenter, the hard drive shuffles and sorts the data around the platter so that all the data on the computer is in a consecutive order. This means the head doesn’t have to move around so much to read your data, and the loading process speeds up.


Is this post was helpful, Glocell? Or do you have any additional ideas regarding to this topic? Let me know.

First, let me state what is the difference between upgrade and update.

Upgrade can mean two different things, it can refer to a newer version of the product or it can refer to a completely new product that is newer than the older product.

The term update is different; it refers to making changes to the same program. It means to bring an older software up to date.

Your question should be this: "When should do update or upgrade?" and then you will know what's reliable.

When it comes to the frequency, upgrades happen a lot less often compared to updates. A necessary part of an upgrade is the addition of new features; the development of which takes time. Most respectable companies address problems quickly. Because of this, you are likely to find more than a few updates available as they come up with solutions for each problem.

Updates are always free as they are not distinct software but are only meant to modify a pre-existing installation. On the other hand, upgrades are distinct and do not need the older software to function. You can expect to pay full price for the upgrade, though some offer discounts for those who own the older version. This is not really applicable when it comes to free software as they do not cost anything to use in the first place.

Do you have questions so far?

How often you should clean a PC is sensitive to environmental factors such as dust accumulation in the house itself, etc. A person living near a construction site would have to clean his rig more often than one living far away from it.

You may do external/internal "dustings" every month. Or every time you change a component, or can't bear the sight of dust in your pc. It is to remove excess build-up. But, it's up to you actually.

1.Shut down the computer and unplug its power cable.

2.Hold in the power button for a few seconds to discharge any remaining electricity.

3.Remove the side panel from your computer case. The panel may be held in place by a latch at the top of the case or by a few thumb screws or Phillips screws at the back.

4.Lay the computer on its side on a desk or table with the opening facing upward and ground yourself by touching an unpainted metal surface on the case. If you have an anti-static wrist strap, attach the strap to your right wrist (or left, if you’re left-handed), and connect the alligator clip at the other end to the computer case.

5.Press down the holding clips on either side of the RAM bay holding the stick you want to clean. The RAM bays are located near the processor and you may have between two to eight of them, depending on your computer. Once the holding clips are released, the RAM should eject.

6.Blow off any loose dust or debris from the RAM using canned air. Hold the module by its edges (lengthwise).

7.Clean the contacts using a cotton swab slightly moistened with rubbing alcohol. You can also use a soft cloth that does not leave fibers behind, such as a lens cleaning cloth.

8.Set the RAM module aside and allow it to dry completely. Repeat Steps 5 -7 for any additional sticks you’d like to clean.

9.Blow out the empty RAM bay with canned air. While you’re at it, you might also want to dust the entire case out at the same time.

10.Replace the RAM sticks in their bays after you're sure they're dry. Make sure you line up the notches correctly. Apply firm and even downward pressure to each side of the module until it snaps into place.

11.Remove the wrist strap if applicable, replace the side panel, plug the power cable back in and power on the computer.

Try the Performance troubleshooter.
Delete programs you never use.
Limit how many programs run at startup.
Clean up your hard disk.
Run fewer programs at the same time.
Turn off visual effects.
Restart regularly.
Change the size of virtual memory.

I hope that I had helped you. Please ask more.

A lot of people just dump their computer’s memory stick, just because it isn’t working while testing their computer with a new RAM.

If you are having a brand memory plugged into your computer, then there is only 2% to 3% chance that you’ll lose your memory stick and need to buy a new one.
RAM actually doesn’t get faulty easily;
It just only needs a proper cleaning, to make a proper physical connection between the motherboard to work properly.

Turn off the power. Remove the RAM. Use a soft brush to remove the dust from it. Use the same brush or compressed air to gently remove the dust, located in the RAM slots of the motherboard. Take a rubber and carefully rub the RAM connectors. Wipe the remaining practicals with a soft / microfiber clothe.
