Dear Chris, I have seen all the top 5 tips and I have decided to pitch in to the community and give some of my own.
- Keep your computer in an open area and make sure that the fan/fans for your computer have plenty of breathing space.
- Don’t abuse your computer by installing an operating system that requires more RAM than the computer currently has, or fear the pain of a slow computer.
- I highly recommend that you purchase a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) for your computer. This will keep your computer from crashing during power outages, and will protect your computer from low and high voltage occurrences.
- Use a virus checker regularly. Everyone should use a virus checker. The best type of protection is continuous monitoring from a dedicated anti-virus program.
- Keep a backup of your system handy! If by any chance your hard drive breaks, its always a great idea to keep a back up of your computer in case.
