    7/24 computer power on, is it bad for the hardware's lifespan?


    regardless of the carbon production and electricity cost, is it bad for the hardware's lifespan for the PC turned on for 7/24, only the screen is switched off

    Windows 10 power options

    Bad drivers installed in your computer could cause various issues, including problems with power options. We suggest that you verify and update the drivers. Here are the steps on how to verify and update the drivers:

    • Go to Search, type devmg, and open Device Manager.
    • Check the whole list of installed hardware, see if none of them has a yellow exclamation mark aside from its icon.
    • If any of the installed hardware has an exclamation mark, right click on it, and select
      Update driver software.
    • Restart your computer, if needed.

    Keep us updated with your concern.

  3. Power Usage of PC: How To Reduce It?


    It seems that some people are saying that leaving a PC on 24/7 shortens the lifespan of the hardware while others are saying it increases the lifespan of the hardware.

    This is so confusing... :'(

    Which one is correct?

    Power Usage of PC: How To Reduce It?


    My laptop has been running 24/7 for almost 6 years, and only thing that has died is the battery. Everything else is running smoothly.

    If your computer is consuming too much power, then do the following:


    1. Make sure you have a platinum certified PSU
    2. remove ALL dust from computer and make sure you have proper cooling
    3. Get rid of your bad ass GPU
    4. Configure computer to use power saving scheme
    5. Underclock all components
    6. Stop/disable all non needed services

    If non of the above help solve your issue, then buy newer hardware with latest components. They draw less power. Remember that high performance and low power consumption does not agree with each other. You can't get both and you have to choose components wisely.
