Why is my pc so slow?
My desktop computer is very slow. Please help!
Operating system - windows 7 32bit
Ram - 512mb
Hard drive - 160 gb and 50 gb
Is this a good question?
-If your computer has not been rebooted recently, make sure you reboot it before following any of the steps below.
-Delete temp files. To do that start Run by pressing the windows button & R and type in " %temp% " and click Ok. Then delete all the files in that folder if some files can't be deleted, just skip those.
-Verify that your hard drive has at least 200-500MB free space.
-Scan for virus using any antivirus program.
-Make sure that you have the latest drivers for your computer hardware, especially the latest video drivers.
-If you have done any of the above steps but your computer is still slow, try rebooting your computer again.
-If you had your computer for more than 2 years, you may need more memory. I suggest computers to have 1GB of RAM for 32-bit system and 2GB for a 64-bit system.
-Make sure your computer and processor is not overheating. If it is over heating clean your CPU case and fans as they might have some dust, dirt or hair.
Hope these steps help!
