Mary Stamberger has known the owner of Velocity Computer Tech for a very long time and she has actually trusted them with all of her computers for the past four years.  So when one of her laptops started acting slow, she did not think twice about where to take it to get repaired and she took it to the best computer technicians and IT support in Kansas City. As a Student at Park University Mary cannot afford to have a malfunctioning laptop, since all of her work is housed within that one machine, and having it not functioning slows her down not only at home, but with her schoolwork.

Among the most common causes of slow computers are misconfigured system settings that require adjusting, heavy file fragmentation due to hard drives not being defragmented, or a corrupt entry on the windows registry that prevents applications or system components from operating properly

“They used to come service our computers at home but since the store opened we like bringing them in to them” -Mary S.

Some of the things you can do at home in order to try and fix the problem of a slow computer are the following:

  • Reboot
  • Background programs
  • Free hard drive space
  • Bad, corrupted or fragmented hard drive
  • Scan for malware
  • Hardware conflicts
  • Update Windows
  • Update your drivers
  • Memory upgrade
  • Hard drive upgrade
  • Run registry cleaner
  • Computer or processor is overheating
  • Erase computer and start over
  • Old computer
  • Hardware issues

If none of these options are able to solve your problem, it would be advised to see a technician since the problem might be a little more technical.
