Quick Fixes To Slow PC Start Up

By Jensen M. Mclaws

At one point or another, we all had to endure the troubles of slow PC start up. A computer that had once booted up within 30 seconds have now all but lost its charm.

The good news is, fixing slow pc start up doesn’t call for an Einstein. It only takes some basic pc operation know-how and ample common sense to get your pc up and about again.

Here are some solutions that can help you speed up slow PC startup: As you use your pc, it packs up junk files that take up disk space. PCs have their moments as well, so if it is not your habit to use Windows utility tools to scan and fix your pc for errors, you shouldn’t be surprised at all if your computer starts to act up. Apparently, while you don’t really like the idea, the easiest way to prevent problems from cropping up is to periodical scan your pc for errors and resolves them accordingly

On top of this, programs and applications are oftentimes designed and set to run along with your OS as your pc boots up. The solution here is to disable the command that launches these unnecessary programs during boot up. This, in return, will remove them from the lists of programs that will be simultaneously initialized with your OS, thus speeding up the entire process. You don’t have to take them off your hard disk completely though. If you still have use for them in the future you can just set them for manual opening.

The changes in the speed of your PC may also be blamed in the errors in its registry. The registry is the integral component of your computer that houses all files necessary to run its other components – from hardware to software. Included in the registry are information that instructs your computer regarding which programs to run during start up. The solution here is to scan and repair the registry errors.

Registry errors come from various things – from file debris of deleted files to bugs that wreak havoc to your entire system. You will want to focus more on file debris, often, these are petty little things that do a lot damage in your pc. The leftovers of delete files use up plenty of computer resources and could eventually slow your pc’s operation to a halt. What happens is, your computer will still search and process these file leftovers, thereby adding up to all other things processed during start up.

Registry errors are remedied either manually or by running a program that automatically clears your registry, the registry cleaner. Given that you have fixed registry errors and have already deleted junk programs and files but your computer still runs on turtle-slow speed, it is recommended that you take a second look at your registry.

Another major cause of slow pc start up is the deterioration of internal hardware components. All things equal, older computer models are much less resistant to slowing down because they have old hardware components that deteriorate. Apparently, computers grow old as well and just like all other gadgets and electronic machines, they eventually die. While a good option, replacing newer components to old pc may not be the best. This is because problems such as incompatibilities may crop up and eventually prevent your pc from starting up smoothly. If you think hardware is your computer’s problem, a repairman may be good for the job.

slow pc start up is a very common with very easy solutions. With the right resources, you will have your pc up and running again in no time. Check out my website to know more.
