8 Ways to Keep Your PC New – DIY Hardware Check-Up

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 PC Key to Happiness – A Properly Maintained OS

Routine maintenance is highly recommended to guarantee efficient and reliable PC performance, even when there is nothing clearly wrong with your computer. Failure to perform maintenance on your PC will eventually cost you – whether it’s in the form of money spent on repair or replacement, loss of data and/or time wasted.

These days money unnecessarily spent hurts more than ever, and the important files that we keep stored on our computers are sometimes irreplaceable. Maintenance can help you achieve the best performance out of your PC without making a costly trip to your local repair shop to help you fix a problem you could have prevented yourself.

Early Detection Can Prevent Major PC Damage

Just like in the medical profession, all PC problems that are detected early will be sure to save time, money and major frustration issues.

Viruses and Early Detection

The first viruses were written for nothing more than pranks. Today, viruses are meant to cause major damage to the Operating System, your personal data, and to even steal your identity.  This makes it imperative to do early detection of viruses in order to minimize the extent of the damage and/or theft of identity factors.

Even if you don’t think you have problems with your PC, you probably still do.

At this point, you have a couple options. You may want to choose a registry cleaner or you might want to use an anti-virus service. What happens if you need both or something completely different? Let’s clear up some confusion, in case there is any.

New Microsoft Applications Slow Down XP

Reimage’s internal reporting system has been showing that there is an increase in the number of repairs with the following combo: Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Media Player 11. So why are we seeing more of these upgrades? It seems like people that chose to stay with their old PC do not upgrade to Vista (here is an odd case. The reason may be that:

  1. Their hardware  wouldn’t support it well (too weak and Vista drivers that are needed for legacy hardware are sometimes hard to find).
