Let Your Computer Relax: MDL Technology Announces Computer De-Stressing Tips

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) - MDL Technology, LLC, a Kansas City managed service and IT company, recently reviewed some simple tricks and tactics to give your computer or laptop a break.

Employees often wear down computers and laptops by not following some simple de-stressing procedures that could end up saving companies money in the long run. For business owners, CIOs, CTOs or IT professionals, these could make or break the bank. Mark Dryer, president of MDL Technology, included some easy tips for businesses to take to expand the lifespan of computers. "Overall, here are some ways to de-stress a computer. Make sure that the hard drive isn't fragmented and that there is sufficient memory to run applications to minimize the use of swap files. Additionally, make sure that the inside of your computer isn't dusty to prevent overheating and verify that the fans are spinning. Avoid placing your computers in spaces that don't have adequate ventilation. Companies should scan a hard drive for viruses and spyware on a regular basis, too. These infections run in the background taking resources away from the computer," said Dryer.

According to a study by Evolven, the average duration of an IT outage due to computer issues for a business was 14 hours a year. IT outages and computer issues cost not only money, but also time and loss of business, resulting in an average loss of $42,000 per hour. By taking the time to care for a computer properly, a company can save time and money.
