Information Artery Jam.
Recently a mate of mine had a stroke. A heart attack if you like. The cause was a blocked artery. The solution for the problem was for a stent to be inserted to allow blood to flow. A contracted or blocked artery can bring the whole show to an abrupt end. A tube was inserted at the groin area and the stent passed through to the chest and into the heart. There the stent is placed. Wow, what a procedure!
A very similar situation occurs in computers when information is trying to pass through, let call them treaties, usually called buses to transfer all those zeros and ones. A computer is a finely constructed machine. The use of parts like incompatible RAM can cause problems with bus urges and cause a computer to crash. A virus can also be designed to overwork a processor to the point where a computer will simply come to a stand still. Incorrectly assembled hardware can also affect the transfer of the information. A short for example will seriously hamper the performance of a computer and if connected to an internal speaker will produce a series of annoying beeps.
So the best thing for a healthy life style for your computer is maintenance. Adopt the use of protection software, there are many on the market all vying for their market share. Having one is better than having none. Download a free version and pay to upgrade to the next level if it works well.
Here is a list of things that should be regularly checked to maintain a speedy computer.
1. Firstly, do not expect an old computer to keep with the pace of modern programs. Update the whole machine to prevent getting bogged down in a mass of information.
2.When a machine accumulates information it stores it on the hard drive, not always in an organized fashion. Here is the need for de-fragmenting the hard drive. It reorganizes the information to make retrieval faster.
3. If the hard drive is becoming close to capacity and maintenance has not been performed regularly the disk will have to spin much longer to reach all the information.
4. Do not mix RAM modules. Use the ones that are meant for those slot. More expensive faster RAM that works does not always make a machine run faster. The whole machine is designed to run at a certain speed. So opening up an "artery" by using faster RAM will be met by a smaller bus through the rest of the system, forcing the RAM to run slower.
5. Occidentally certain system files become outdated or corrupt. Ask the system manufacturer for advise on updating software such as BIOS and other system drivers that are critical in running the computer. Computer Crash.
All systems require maintenance, whether human electric or mechanical. It is with the right treatment that the life of those systems can be extended and brings an improved quality of life.
