Revive Your Slow Computer with an Easy Bottleneck Blitz
Old age creeps up slowly – unless you’re a computer.
Then it seems to happen overnight. One day you’re logging in normally and jumping right into the action, the next day booting up takes so long you not only have time to make a cup of coffee, you could have run out to the local café for the good stuff.
This is the stage where many people throw their hands in the air and start wishing for a new computer.
Except your computer isn’t broken and doesn’t need replacing, it’s just….slow.
Time-wasting, focus-losing, frustratingly slow.
Like any machine, computers have parts that wear out – particularly if they have moving parts that are in near-constant use.
The hard drive is the #1 cause of speed bottlenecks in most computers.
Traditional hard drives are made up of a stack of round magnetic platters, spinning at up to 7200rpms, while a read/write head on a mechanical arm whizzes back and forth.
Eventually, the platters take longer to spin up, unable to reach full throttle, and the mechanical arm becomes sluggish.
Which leaves you waiting. And waiting…
