During the work in the laptop accumulates a certain number of files that are not useful, and just clutter up the memory of the computer, interfering with the normal operation of programs, and confusing the user.

The most obvious Keeper of a file collection is, of course, the "Basket". This is a temporary home for files that most likely won't need them. The following type of files are the temporary Internet files. All of them must not be removed, because they speed up access to frequently visited pages, but once a month there will probably be a couple of hundred files that you no longer need. This can be understood by the names.
Delete the files with the chk extension, creates an antivirus program while checking the disks. They are stored in the "root" directory of the hard disk. This so-called files lost clusters. Get rid of the error reports and memory dumps, which occupy a lot of disk space.
Temporary files are created when you run any program the operating system. The idea is that they must be removed immediately after its completion, however, sometimes remain in place by reason of failure or defects of the creators.
Another type of files that can be deleted – backup documents. It's almost all files that have in its name the mark ~ - tilde. As a rule, files with the file extension bak, old, wbk, etc. However, be careful not to delete files that are still in operation, otherwise there will be crashes, and unsaved documents cannot be recovered.

Advice 2 : How to clear RAM
PC users who at least once re-installed the operating system, have probably noticed that after this accelerates the download speed and applications. But over time this effect disappears, and this is due to the fact that the operational memory "clogged," and it remains available for comfortable work with applications. Therefore, the operational memory to be cleared. Try to figure out how to do it using standard tools of the operating system.
You will need
- Computer, memory, program Msconfig
Some applications in the process takes all available memory and even after the cessation of its work are not exempt. If the situation is one-off, just reboot the computer, thus there is a complete memory clear. In General, such a behavior of the application indicates bad optimization code, and should such programmes be avoided. Most often this sin games.
If an online memory is hammered constantly, you should see what processes she's busy. To do this, start "task Manager" of Windows (to run, press ctrl+alt+del) in Processes tab displays modules that are at this moment in memory and how much space they occupy. To upload memory-hungry program, click "end process".
To prevent automatic downloading of programs to the operational memory, you should delete them from the list of startup applications. To do this, run the program Msconfig (to start, press Win+R and in the command prompt, type msconfig). In the menu that appears, select "startup". You will see a list of apps which are automatically loaded into the main memory at system startup. Pick the ones you want to delete from the list and UN-tick the box in front of them.
Use caution when clearing RAM, not to complete the process necessary for the operation of the system.
Do not run both apps except those that really work at the moment either needs to be active all the time (like antivirus). This preventive measure will significantly save free space in the RAM.
Advice 3 : How to remove RAM
Operational memory is a type of volatile memory of a computer or mobile device. All data is removed from devices after a power outage. In computers this type of memory is presented in the form of separate devices RAM.
You will need
- - Screwdriver set.
Failures of memory can adversely affect the performance of your computer and laptop. To extract the faulty RAM and replace it with a working equivalent, you must obtain access to the internal components of the computer. Disconnect the appliance from the mains supply. Better to remove the cable from the system unit to switch the mode of the network filter.
Remove a few screws, which is attached to the side wall of the housing. For this use a flat or Phillips head screwdriver. Remove the cover and locate the RAM modules. They are presented in the form of small flat boards. Unfasten the latches that prevent accidental disconnection of the RAM from the motherboard of the computer.
Pull the desired RAM module. Install in its place a new Board and secure the latches. After loading the operating system, check stability of RAM. To do this, click "control Panel" and select "System and security". Go to the menu "Administration" item "memory Test Windows" and run it.
In your computers memory modules are usually hidden in a special compartment. Turn off the laptop and disconnect the power supply. Remove the battery pack.
Phillips screwdriver Unscrew a few screws and open the cover where the memory modules. Gently pry the free edge of the memory module. Remove it from the slot. Lower connector and close the compartment.
If you are not sure which memory module is faulty, check each of them. To do this, remove all modules and insert one before each test.
