How to speed up my computer without adding new RAM
By Renee | 03/Mar/2024
In most case, adding more RAM will do more to speed up your computer than any other upgrade you can make. This is because Windows and most of the software that run on it are resource hogs. When you run two or three programs at the same time (and you must run much more than that), a system runs short of RAM. It must swap the overflow data to the hard drive, which will often be bogging the computer down to a snail’s pace. Adding more RAM means less swapping, hence faster system performance.
However, you have to make sure that you purchase the correct RAM with the same specs as the memory sticks that are already installed and install your new memory modules in pairs. And there is one more truth: you can only enjoy two months brand-new speed at most and then back to the original slow one. Because adding more RAM just provides bigger space for your soaring amount of programs and files.
In fact, as long as you clean up your computer and have the optimization on a regular basis, you can speed up your computer without adding more RAM.
Here’s the guide to speed up your computer in the most effective way:
Cleaning Up Junk Files and Programs
Erasing the unnecessary junk files in the system, the registry and other programs will help a lot in speeding up the computer. Cleaning this kind of dump files can reduce unnecessary load on the hard ware, which takes away system resources that we can use elsewhere.
Removing unwanted and old programs is essential, too. These less frequently used software not only take up hard drive space but also secretly run in the background and thus robbing away the processor working capacity.
All these junks can be easily deleted to clean out for speeding up computers in the Neptune SystemCare Ultimate, which is an advanced computer optimization utility, sweeping off all the junks within one click.
Cleaning and Organizing Hard Drive
Defragmenting the hardware is consolidating all the empty spaces that are created in the file system structure when you install and remove files. These empty spaces make your hard drive take longer to think, which in turn causes files, folders, and programs to open slowly. Thus, to defrag the hard drive will clean out more space for other valuable resources.
Open Neptune SystemCare Ultimate and head to System Tuneup tab to choose Disk Defrag. Scan and Defrag will help to speed up opening files.
Real-time Monitoring the Programs and Services in the Background
Our system could be overheating and slow down with too many programs and services running in the background when the CPU speed would reduce to avoid becoming damaged by the excess heat. Therefore, checking the CPU resources and GPU temperature is inevitable.
You can do it easily with System Monitor in Neptune SystemCare Ultimate.
Cleaning Unnecessary Startup Items
Disabling unnecessary startup items results in both a faster start-up and a more responsive computer, as these applications not running continuously means more RAM and CPU will be available for the operations you perform on the computer.
It is easy to modify with Neptune SystemCare Ultimate, too. Under System Tuneup tab and choose Startup Manager.
You can see that cleaning and speeding up the computer is easy and prolong without adding more RAM. Just a few clicks within Neptune SystemCare Ultimate can save you more time and better computer performance.
