Fibre Optics relates to the internet, although fibre can make your internet much faster there are other variables which will ultimately determine how fast your internet is.

"how can i get my pc to run faster?"

Well this depends on what you are experiencing.

How old is the machine?
What are your specs?
How long have you been experiencing performace issues?
What anti virus/Firewall/Anti spyware do you use?

Your question can will probably get you a variety of answers, but if you need a more tailored answer to your problem then you will need to describe what is happening with your machine.

✔ Best Answer
If you want your PC to run faster you can do the following things:

1. Disk Cleanup: To do this follow these steps (Start > Accessories > System Tools > Disk cleanup)

2. Disk Defragmentation: To do this follow these steps (Start Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragment) What this will do is find all the scattered files on your hard drive and bring them back together into one file. This allows for a faster hard drive because when you open a file it will be in one location and not 1000 locations.

3. Buy a SSD (Solid State Disk) 100x faster than SATA II and IDE.

4. Buy more RAM 3GB and above should be enough.

You could buy a processor also, but if you don't want to spend alot of money on a new PC then the above steps (except for no.3) are the way to save money..

In order for me to help you further I will need to know the specification of your PC...


Thanks

As stated, fiber optics is used to supply high speed internet service, Verizon FiOS is an example. In my area, they offer 15/5 Mbps or 50/25 Mbps speeds (1st number is download, 2nd number is upload). It doesn't make your system run faster, but it will supply it with data faster. Whether your system can take advantage of it would depend on your system specs. And without knowing your system specs, it's difficult to say what may be needed to make it run faster.

I have an issue with this comment - Buy a SSD (Solid State Disk) 100x faster than SATA II and IDE. SSDs are NOT 100x faster than standard mechanical HDDs, it's more like 10-15x faster. That's still significant, but let's not exaggerate. And there are downsides - cost/GB being the big one. Also, if a SSD fails, that's it - all data is lost & not recoverable. You would still need a mechanical HDD for data storage.

Above are good hardware choices but there are usually some web pages that tell how to sort of speed up your MS install. Things like reducing files, reducing services and such may help. Some registry tweaks may still work. A good usb set to readyboost may even help.

riider > Im not saying just to only buy solid state. Obviously he needs something else to use just incase a disk fails... and when I say 100x faster its called exaggeration :). He would obviously be able to see what I mean when he boots from an SSD or loads a program :) And yes of course SSD are expensive to buy but above of what I said are ways to speed up your PC if you DONT want to spend money like I said :)

Rios, there are no disks in an SSD drive, and why would you exaggerate when trying to help someone improve their system. Stick to the facts. You're not helping anyone with false information.

I know there is no DISK in a Solid State Drive, I wrote it by accident (just noticed). When I say it's 100x faster I mean it figuratively, I don't mean its LITERALLY 100x faster... Like I said in my above post he will be able to see what I mean when he either boots to Windows or opens up an application...

It's just faster end of story.

When children hear others say things like "this a million times
better", they get the impression that it is an acceptable way to
express "bigness". When they use the form themselves, they
may not think about the fact that "a million" or "a hundred" are
actual numbers, not just words indicating bigness. Once they
understand how actual numbers are used, they can get a better
perspective on when and how to use hyperbole. But it has to
be learned, and that takes time.
