How to improve productivity in Work from home for laptop or desktop ?

  1. Why is my PC suddenly so slow?
    1. Answers:
      • Use the Disk Clean-Up (CCleaner) for getting rid of Temp files in your system.
      • The disk can be full with the backups you took on your last working day. Manually Free some space first from the OS drive & keep backups on external drives. Try cleaning the downloads folder if you download lot of files there to clear the clutter.
      • You might have too many internet intensive apps working, which your home internet is struggling to manage. You might have to work with One software at a time. You need to monitor the network resources tab to understand it.
      • If you are working with remote access, that’s an additional load on the home internet. Also, you might want to get all accesses from the server admin for better bandwidth.
  1. I tried all these already, it doesn’t help. My PC still cannot manage the heavy files & Office software. This is last minute and low on Budget. Do I really HAVE to get a new PC/ Laptop??
    1. Answers:
      • If the bottleneck is in the hardware, there’s still no need to upgrade the entire system. Start with the low-cost ones – the RAM.
      • Shortage of Memory (RAM) capacity limits the performance. Upgrading the frequency or adding more RAM, can reduce system lags AND make softwares more responsive.
      • If you are techy enough, I always suggest to upgrade to SSD for your laptop from the normal HDD. This process it little longer as you’ll have to shift the hard disk data to SSD with USB Enclosure to be bought separately.
  1. For ages, Kingston Technology has built an automated Memory Search feature on its website. This is the easiest part – to find a compatible memory for your system.

      • Search for 16GB Kingston ValueRAM on Amazon you’ll get the suitable option for your laptop.
  3. 2nd option is the ‘Kingston System-Specific’ memory (Recommended)
    1. This is designed, manufactured, tested and guaranteed to work with your specific system.
