Fix that laptop

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Have you ever wondered why your laptop does not run like it used to? Do you think you can’t afford a new PC?

As we count our change and budget our way out of this difficult economy, many of us are fixing rather than replacing. Not just computers but everything we can repair we do. Here are a few simple tips anyone can do to make their laptop run a little better.

*Remove software – software requires space and memory to operate, if you no longer need it, remove it.
*Defrag hard drive – hard drives become fragmented as we use them, defragmenting enables the drive to run more effectively.
*AntiVirus – keep your antivirus up to date it will not keep you protected if it’s out of date.

Anyone can perform these 3 simple tasks every month and you may stretch another year or so from “Old Faithful”

Have you ever lost your data? What is more valuable to you the laptop or the data stored on it? How about your small business? Do these questions make you nervous and wonder what would I do if my system crashed?

Data recovery is one of the services we provide at CET. Re-acquiring your data may be a reality, and an expensive one at that. Wouldn’t it be more sensible if your data was backed up on an off-site server?
