How to make your Old computer run like New!

You probably have a 5-8 year old computer and its getting older and slower and you are probably thinking of getting a new computer but money is a bit tide right now for a big purchase!

You have possibly upgraded your RAM before and it still doesn't seems to show you any sign of progress.

Maybe even worse and you have upgraded to Over 4GB Memory and realized that you cant really enjoy the benefits out of it because your system can only support 32bit operating system not 64bit and it cant read or use over 3GB memory.

You have installed CCleaner to keep it always clean from junk, bad cookies and web history etc.., you have installed Malwarebytes to keep it secure from most malware, spyware, adware, and/or viruses, you have scheduled Disk Defragmenter to keep the hard disk maintained even after you recently purchased a new hard disk to replace your old one! You've also used CCLeaner or MSCONFIG to disable useless start-up programs that take too much of your RAM on the Computer that slows it down a lot!

You have taken every step and precaution possible to keep it running like new and in matter of months if not weeks its supper slow all over again!

WHAT GIVES?

Technology is so fast today that unless most of your computer components are up to date nothing will keep up!

Have you ever asked yourself a question such as..?Why is my smartphone faster then my computer? My computer has a better advanced processor, more memory, larger hard disk space but you can check your email, play a video on YouTube and make a phone call by the time your laptop or desktop computer fully boots!

Most Computers even with the latest processors and computer components still continue to come with old fashioned mechanical spinning hard disks. This Old Fashioned Hard Disks(HDD) Have Made a lot of History over the Years since the computing revolution began but their time has come where they are slower then the tasks required to do what you need on a regular basis.

You Need to replace your old technology HDD(Hard Disk) with the latest SSD(Solid State Drive)! If your Old Computer supports SATA type of Hard Disk then you are in luck to try a Solid State Disk on your computer today. Solid State Disks have actually been around for quite some time but only recently began to be more affordable then ever before. Less then 2 Years Ago an SSD Drive with a size of 128GB-256GB would cost from $500 to $1000 that's practically more then a whole new computer alone that's why the manufacturers have never begun to include them in their computers when they build them! But Today you can get a 256GB-512GB between $150 to $250 US dollars!

Look around at different electronic stores to where you live, compare their prices and decide to get one that you can most afford and make your old computer run like never before. Make it Even Faster then When it was Brand New since your computer never came with SSD even in day one of is existence before it was used and turned on for the first time!

In case you are wondering why I used smartphone as an example earlier its because they are computers that are super fast because they are computers that don't depend on old fashioned mechanical spinning hard disks, other wise how can people rotate their phones on a table when they are bored, or play games rotating and tapping their phones and tablets with their hands and fingers left, right and center, you cant do that with a mechanically Old Fashioned Spinning Hard Disk. All phones would crash daily on regular basis and will need to be changed hourly not daily which is obviously unrealistically foolish to even consider!

HDD is the PAST, SSD is the PRESENT

Allocation Unit Size is Important

Allocation Unit Sizeshould be taken very seriously in order to Prevent Computer Problems of all sorts, such as Speed Performance, Hard Disk Damage, Loss of files and etc... You see when you format a partition it normally formats it with a default allocation unit size that can be a good thing but it can also be a bad thing.

It's a good thing because when you format the drive with the NTFS files system the default allocation unit size is 4096 bytes which is equal to 4 kilobytes. That very simply means that when you install programs or download any type of data to the computer, the hard disk of the computer will not be very full very quickly.

But unfortunately its a bad thing as well because the files are so physically small since they are running on a Small Allocation Unit Size Partition that the drive will physically be getting fragmented allot more quickly and frequently. The computer will begin to run allot slower all the time.

Now if you format a partition with a Higher Allocati…

exFAT for Windows XP

I respect the exFAT file system so much that I personnaly nicknamed it "DA Extremely Fast File System"

In the Honorable, Long Lasting and Reliable Windows XP, exFAT is available for update download and instalation!

I have formatted all of my USB Flash cards into the exFAT file system cause I know that all the operating systems from XP and above will understand it!

One of my friends has XP and when I plugged in my USB (exFAT formatted) it poped up and it said that I should format my USB! In order to use exFAT for Windows XP all I had to do was download an exFAT update(KB955704) from microsoft!

Although exFAT is designed for USB(removable disks), I risk using it on my second internal Hard Disk for all my web browsing(Temporary Internet Files) and downloads!

Install the following update in order to add support for the exFAT file system format on your computer using Windows XP!

If you are using Microsoft Windows XP Home, Proffesional and/or Media Center and if you l…

SUDO SUthen press ENTER

Then it will ask for your User Password, type it out and press Enter!

Then type APT-ADD-REPOSITORY PPA:RELAN/EXFAT then press Enter

After you press Enter a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement that Google has bought from Microsoft to use their exFAT file system on Google's Mobile Android Linux Operating System that can be used on mobile devices if you've enabled root access) for the free exFAT file system implementation project message will load up!

Once again you have to press ENTER to …
