If you are just now buying a desktop computer for the first time, you might not realize how to find a good one. You likely just have to replace a computer you have which is broken or too old. The following article will make buying a desktop much easier.
If your desktop computer runs slow, perform a boot check. Run “ms config” from your start menu. From this menu, look at what programs start when the machine boots. You should disable programs that you don’t use often. This will make your computer run faster.
Take a measurement of size of the desktop and measure the space you will place it. The size of the computers will vary between brands and models. Some will have a small profile, while others will take up a lot of vertical space. You should know what size you want.
To make sure your computer is most efficient and to make sure your fan is properly cooling the components, dust the inside of the computer every week. It is usually not too difficult to remove the case. Then use compressed air to remove the dust. This will prevent dust from entering the computer and will lower its temperature.
Look at technology sites for computer reviews to get a good idea on what you should buy. It is tough to make a choice from so many options, but by doing some research, things will be easier.
Buy a computer that comes with a solid warranty. It’ll protect you in case there is an issue with the hardware or software. Most likely you can bring it to the store where it was purchased and either get it fixed there, or if possible exchange it for a brand new one.
Make a list of the things you are going to be doing on your new desktop. The type you need depends on these tasks that you do regularly. If you play games a lot, your requirements differ from the typical user.
While you may not know exactly which computer to buy yet, you know how to figure it out. To help you select your computer, you can always get a salesperson who knows their product to assist you. Good luck with it!
