Old Junk Laptop? No, Just Needs A New HDD.

Sometimes your computers may fall behind in the speed department, may lock up or just fail to deliver like they used to. Truth is, most laptops have a stock 5400rpm HDD with little to no cache. When they begin to fail, they go from being slow to even more slow, until they completely fail.

Believe it or not, if your laptop still has DDR2 ram in it, it is still viable! Just replace that dying HDD with a 7200rpm HDD that also has a decent cache size and increase the ram in your laptop. A fresh OS install with your docs, pics, music, favs, desktop, and downloads will remind you that your laptop is still quite fast! (make sure your technician cleans the old thermal paste and pads from the chips and cooling setup, replaces them, and cleans the dust from the heatsink!)

New Drive New Life!

About

Computer repair/networking. Been at it since I was a 7 year old helpin dad at Ohio Bell/Ameritec/SBC/Ameritec. All I can remember is his rhino skin hands, a gel knife, and miles of underground, stupid thick black cable that opened up into a bajillion tiny wires, shoved into small to large junction boxes. Like a box of fireworks just exploded. Started on the old white desktop IBMs with the 5 inch floppy and the 1/4th drive, playing hugo who dunnit, hugo and the haunted house of horrors, olympics, and where in the world is carmen sandiago. oh! and a dinosaur game of some sort.
