How to run a computer speed test
When you first buy a new computer, it should run like lightning. As time goes on and you use it more, adding more programs, downloading more things, etc., you may start to notice that your computer’s performance starts to slow down. How can you know whether your computer is performing at optimal speeds? You’ll need to run a computer speed test.
There are many computer software packages available that are designed to measure the speed of a computer’s CPU. Using these software applications, you can measure your computer’s speed and compare it against what the optimal speed for your computer setup should be. If you want to run large programs such as complex games, you’ll need to ensure that your computer is running at the right specifications.
Some other computer programs will help you to isolate errors on your computer that could be compromising your computer’s performance. All you have to do is run the program and you’ll receive a report that indicates whether there are such errors present. The program will also offer solutions to fix the errors it finds. You’ll be given the option whether or not you want to initiate the repair.
Most of these tools described above are free and readily available online. That means you can download several different ones and compare the results they produce. From there, you can make a decision about how you want to proceed based on the information the programs provide you. One note of caution: Just like everyone other computer program you install on your computer, these speed program take up room on your computer, which can bog down your system. Always remember to uninstall the program after you have used it so that those resources can once again be freed up. This will help to improve the speed of your system.
After you’ve done these things (or if you choose not to do this) there is another method you can use to perform a speed test on your computer. This method doesn’t cost anything and is very straightforward. All you have to do is first restart your computer. Take note of how long it takes to go from being completely off to being fully loaded. If it takes longer than usual, chances are good that you need to get rid of some programs. Go through the programs that are installed on your computer and delete anything you don’t currently use. Be ruthless! By removing as many unused resources as possible, you will streamline you system so that it can run faster.
Clear your Internet cache. This can be achieved by using a cleanup utility, which will free up memory and space on your computer. Finally, scan your system for virus, which can also monopolize your system’s resources.
After you’ve done these things, restart your computer and time its start up again. Compare that time to the previous one. It should be faster now!
