How Do I Protect Computer Equipments from Power Surges?

A: There are basically 2 options in protecting your Computer Equipments from Power Surges. The cheap option is to put a Power Surge Protection Board between your equipment and the Wall Power. However, if you have an important equipment that you’d like to protect such as Server, Terminal Server, etc, it is better to use Unterruptible Power Supply (UPS). There are three different types of UPS systems. The first is the offline type this type only starts working when the power utility goes off and then it subsequently takes power from its source. Secondly, the line interactive and thirdly, on-line this type of unit protects the load from its reserves at the same time adding more power to its reserves by taking power from the power utility. This type of unit is also known as line conditioner or power conditioner. They also come in different capacities to suit your equipment’s need. They start from as low as about $135 + GST. UPS is Great because Not only that it gives protection from Power Surges, in cases of sudden power loss, the UPS will also continue to power the computer system long enough for you to save your work and thus avoids the risk of Data Loss or Corruption.

I just bought a new computer about 6 months ago, why is it now slower than another computer that is 4 years old?

A: Unlike a car, computer is consisted of Hardware and Software. Although the Hardware is only 6 months old, the software might be already infected with viruses and Spyware or corrupted during 6 months time. Whereas the other computer has much older hardware but having the software in prime condition

How do I ensure that the software is prime?

A: Just like a car, Computer requires Software Tune-Up and checking periodically. The frequency required for Tune-Up depends on the activities done on the Internet. On average, we recommend it to be done in every 3 months.
