Does the computer lose performance?
Does your personal computer lose performance? Need to find out the cause of this phenomenon? Then you are at! This article will talk about this phenomenon.
So, you noticed that recently your computer began to lose in performance, freeze up, shut down, load for a long time, etc. … You should not immediately contact a repair or service center, sound the alarm and worry. These problems with your PC can be caused by various reasons and factors, many of which depend only on you and they will be considered unacceptable when you submit your computer to the store under warranty. We will analyze all the problems in order.
Sudden shutdown / restart of the computer during operation.
Finding out the cause of such a problem is often straightforward. In most of these cases (98%), this results from overheating of any part of your PC. Basically it overheats the central processor, but problems with the video card are possible. Why it happens? After all, everything was fine before. If you have a problem of this class, then your PC has a cooling problem. The processor does not have enough cooling, it overheats to a certain temperature (prescribed in the BIOS) and the so-called protection is triggered. Yes, yes, it’s protection because if not for it, then you could have lost your processor, and it is far from the cheapest hardware in a modern computer. So, protection against overheating is triggered and the PC reboots thereby temporarily removing the load from the CPU and it cools down. But this process of protection is repeated by the stalemate when the processor heats up to a certain temperature. If there is not enough cooling, then there is a problem in the cooling system. Cooling systems are different, but the most common is air cooling with coolers (fans). So the problem lies in the fan, which cools the processor. If your computer is more than a year old, then it is possible that the cooler simply clogged with dust. The cooler motor itself could become clogged or the dust stuck in huge layers to the fan blades and therefore it began to spin much more slowly, thereby emitting less cooling than required. In this case, you need to open the system unit and clean the fan. It could also be drained and, as a result, rotate as slowly. Those. The fan motor has run out of lubricating oil. You will then need to either replace the fan or lubricate it. See how to lubricate coolers in this article.
If possible, replace the thermal grease between the heat sink and the processor. the old one could dry out if your PC is more than one to two years old.
If, after the actions taken, the problem has not disappeared, then your problem is more serious and it lies in the processor itself, but this is very rare.
The thing is that over time the processor begins to warm up more strongly and generate more heat and it already lacks premature cooling, so it overheats and the protection works. But this happens in exceptional cases since In this case, the BIOS of the motherboard will simply increase the energy supply to the cooler and it will spin more intensively (makes more noise), thereby giving the processor the necessary cooling, all this is provided by the developers of processors and cooling systems. But still there have been such cases. In this case, it is necessary to change the cooling of the processor to a more powerful one and the problem will be solved.
Freezes and long computer boot.
The reason most often lies in viruses, all kinds of trojans, banners and worms. There is only one way out – to heal! We treat Kaspersky antivirus, well, or as an option Nod32 (it’s even faster). But first of all, before the scanning procedure, it is necessary to update the signature databases of your antivirus, so that the databases are the latest and newest. We start the system scanning process, for comprehensive protection, you must specify all sections of the hard disk for the scan (: C: D: E and others, if any, but not removable or virtual). The most reliable antivirus is probably Kaspersky, but it is very slow in comparison with its competitors, which are also practically inferior to it in reliability. Eset Nod32 is an excellent alternative and it works much faster, the databases are updated almost every day – an excellent weapon in the fight against viruses. You can also use doctors web and panda and other antiviruses, in principle with new databases, they all show pretty good results. When you find viruses, feel free to treat or remove. The main thing is that they do not get to the system files, otherwise you will have to demolish Windows.
It also does not hurt to get rid of all unnecessary installed programs and from unknown programs that can be malicious.
You also need to clean the registry of the operating system. This is done with special plugins (Vit Registry Fix, CCleaner …) quickly and easily.
It is also recommended to defragment files on your hard drive. Because files with time “break” on the screw and it takes a lot of time to find and download them. Defragmenting the process is quite long (especially if you have a large hard drive), so be patient.
