Getting the Most Out of Your PC

Sometimes programs run in the background without the user ever knowing it, so it is a good idea to open the computer’s task manager and close any unnecessary programs in order to reduce the load on the CPU.  External devices like a mouse, web cam and external drives can also speed up how fast your battery drains.  Wifi can also drain your battery so it is a good idea to disable your wifi connection if you are not using the internet. The disk drive on a laptop will also use more power than a solid state drive like a USB thumb drive so avoid using CD’s and DVD’s when possible.

You can also extend the life of your laptop’s battery by occasionally cleaning the contacts between the battery and the computer.  Simply remove the battery and wipe the connections on both the battery and the computer with a soft cloth that is been slightly moistened with household rubbing alcohol.  This will help keep the contacts from corroding and will ensure that you get the maximum amount of power available from you battery.  You should also take care not to let a fully charged battery sit unused for an extended period of time.

Before You Customize a Laptop in the HP G60t Series

Now whenever HP salespeople have found another G60t customer, then the memory is not the only item that gets a free upgrade. An HP special guarantees a free upgrade for the laptop’s hard disk as well. That promises to transform a 160 GB Sata into a 250 GB disk.
