Tip 1. Check your hard drive’s “physical” health
Most new and XP-era drives are equipped with Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, aka SMART reporting. SMART data is stored within the hard drive itself and can often alert you to impending problems before they get serious.
It’s easy to check the SMART data. Two tools we recommend are PassMark’s DiskCheckup and Active@ DiskMonitorFree. Both programs are free for personal use and also come in commercial versions for organizations.
Tip 2. Check your hard drive’s “logical” health
Run chkdsk.exe to check the integrity of your hard drive’s files and to repair any errors.
The Holiday 2010 shopping sprees are in full swing. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas sales and discounts are plenty and you’re no doubt going over your Christmas list and checking it twice. Maybe even thinking of upgrading your current computer for a new one? After all, they’re on sale.
However, there are important things to consider before getting yourself a brand spanking new piece of hardware, or just getting your semi-new workstation ready for the Holiday 2010 shopping season — whether you’re purchasing gifts online or video chatting with friends on your webcam.
During the last 6 months, we discovered that Reimage has fixed mostly new (that is, 0-3 year old) computers. It’s definitely something to consider when buying a new PC this Holiday Season!
55% of Reimage repairs were made on PC’s only 0-3 years old
