5 Reasons Thats Why Your Computer performing Slow: Reason 1

Your computer performance is very slow such as an old Pentium 2–despite having run lightning fast a year ago. You haven’t changed anything. Your virus checker comes up clean. What happened? This is a common problem that every computer user faces. Before you resort to smashing your computer with a sledgehammer, there are simple steps to revealing why your computer is performing slow.

Here are a important reasons why your PC is running slow.

#1: Your Computer Is Slow Because There’s No Space For The Page File.

Have you seen the huge increases in the amount of computer memory (RAM) shipped with computers over the last decade? My computer has almost thousand times as much memory as my first computer. This is in part a result of slow programs that try to use as much RAM as they can. If your computer is running slow, having as much RAM as your computer can handle installed, will definitely guarantee that your computer will run faster.

Windows is liable for distributing RAM to each program. So, what does Windows do when it runs out of spare RAM to distribute? It tells programs to write their least-important memory to a special file on your disk called a page file. As long as there’s enough space in the combined memory and page file to hold every program’s memory, Windows doesn’t have to do anything further.

But, when you run low on disk space because your file system is filled up, Windows can’t create a page file large enough to hold any significant amount of program memory.

Different programs handle low-memory situations differently, but every program must run at least a little slower. Some memory-hog programs, such as modern Web browsers, will run a lot slower when they can’t have all the memory they need.

The solution to this problem is very easy: make sure you always leave a little free space on your file system. Ideally, you try to leave free an amount equal to the amount of RAM in your computer–so if you have 4 GB of RAM, make sure you always have at least 4 GB free disk space to prevent your computer from performing slow.
