Things to Consider When Making a Computer Upgrade
What is Making your Computer Run Slowly?
There are many things that may cause your computer to perform poorly:
- Over time, software updates require your computer to perform too close to its maximum capacity.
- Viruses and spyware from malicious websites and emails may have infected your computer.
- Your computer does not have enough storage space for data.
- Your computer does not have enough memory.
- Your computer hard drive may be fragmented. That means the data on your computer is not organized efficiently so it takes longer to retrieve.
ComputerLynx will evaluate your computer’s performance so that you can make an informed decision. Regular maintenance will help keep your computer running fast and may delay the need for a computer upgrade.

A ComputerLynx expert will determine if it makes sense to add memory or storage capacity to your present computer. We’ll also help you decide whether to add more computers or network capacity.
