I know overheat causes problems, but does cold slow things down? Up here in the mountain shack my temps are 41 & 26, & my PC has seemed slower these last few weeks-as have I!!Just wondered if I should get more heat? Al
the cooler the better.heat is not good for computers.
Generally speaking, your processors should work quicker if they're kept colder -- though I doubt anyone would notice the difference within normal day-to-day temperature ranges.It's more likely to be something like your HDD filling up, or some background program (maybe uninvited) hogging your memory or processor.
It probably seems slower cos Im sitting here freezing! Now installed a fan heater in my lair!!Hard drive is 40gig, only 4.5 used-really must be my imagination, just wondered about the cold-thaks. Al
I meant "thanks" not "thaks"! Cold affecting me, anyway!!
if you think it is running a bit sluggish then run a disc cleanup/chkdsk and defrag.also run your AV and mabye try spybot or adaware click here click hereyou could also disable any uneeded start up programs.if you have a lot starting with windows it could slow things down a bit.click start/run type "msconfig" click the start up tab and untick everything except your av and firewall and restart the computer.ignore the warning that pops up and tick dont show again.and maybe disable or set to manual any uneeded services that are set to auto to free up some ram. click here
many thanks- am running ME, but will try to free up some ram. Al
