As stated before, I am pretty new at computers and after having my computer basically die after a year of use (and losing it for a month due to best buy/ geek squad and their slow service, even though it was free). It got me thinking what are all the possible things I can do to keep my laptop both fast and healthy.
Basically all I know how to do is defrag the hard drive once a month and run ccleaner..... So anything more expansive than this is what I am looking for in a reply:
Also, any tips on battery care. My current battery (the one I got with original purchase a year ago) stays charged for 30-45 minutes max off of full charge and it used to be much longer. Needless to say this renders my laptop useless in class. I now have a new one not even opened yet, so what are things I can do to keep this new one lasting much longer than the one in it now?
Thanks in advance for the help as y'all here are generally kind and informative to the "uneducated" folk like me!
