It is not unusual that over a period of months or even weeks, the performance of your new computer becomes slower. You may be able to put up with it in the beginning, but soon you find yourself sitting there, waiting for programs to open or even to respond to commands. Let’s just say that you can hit the power button and walk away to have a cup of coffee or do something else till it comes up all the way. But one thing is constant, no matter if you’re using your computer for entertainment or work, slow performance like this just makes you want to throw it in the trash and you need to find a fix for your computer system running slow.
There are several different reasons your PC could be running slowly.
#1 First of all, RAM (Random Access Memory) acts like short term memory. Before any information is dedicated to the long term memory on the hard drive, it has to be stored within the RAM. Ram also acts as a way to help speed up the retrieval of pieces of information you may be using over and over again for a particular program. It’s a much fast and efficient way to store information because instead of having to physically spin a hard drive and search for the information RAM consists of only memory chips. No moving parts mean faster access.
