Hi,

Not sure if this is the right place for it or not.
I have 3 work PC's that need some attention.

We use software called AutoCad & Autocad Rivit
These 3 computers seem to run slow under normal working conditions.

is someone able to give me some information on upgrading parts if possible or what my options are please?

Here is the specs for PC No. 1
I'm thinking to upgrade this would be a new build?
Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
CPU
AMD A4-5300
Trinity 32nm Technology
RAM
24.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-12-28)
Motherboard
MSI 2AE0 (P0)
Graphics
S23B350 ([email protected])
S271HL ([email protected])
512MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 7480D (HP)
Storage
931GB Western Digital WDC WD10EZEX-60ZF5A0 (SATA)
PC No. 2
I'm thinking with this one to update the CPU to i7 and double the RAM at least?
Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
CPU
Intel Core i3 3240 @ 3.40GHz
Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology
RAM
8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard
ECS H61H2-MV (SOCKET 0)
Graphics
2769M ([email protected])
2369M ([email protected])
2048MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 6670 (MSI)
Storage
1863GB TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 (SATA)
PC No.3 I recon this may have to be a new build.
This PC seems to be the slowest of all.


They meet the recommended requirements for Autocad but along with running that and other general programs these computers slow down quite a bit.

Hello Jaymie1989,

Couple of things I must mention, we can only help with one computer at a time and being that these are work computers you should in the first instance be asking the system administrator or IT department for support, we are not allowed to help with anything other than personal computers for legal reasons.

I'm merely asking for advice.
Which we can give now that we know that you are responsible for the computer/s, the reason why we cannot assist with business computers is because as long as someone is a member they can post in any none malware related thread, not all tech advice is sound and something could be suggested that hoses a computer, network etc shutting down the system for heaven knows how long and the business then looking to sue for damages.

Run Speccy and post the url for the results to the first computer that you wish to sort out.
