Computer Problems And Solutions
A computer has a lot of parts and only one thing needs to go wrong to give the computer owner a bad experience. Usually there are more problems with software than hardware, but hardware problems are more severe and usually cost more money to fix than software problems. Close to 100% of every computer owner has experienced computer problems and are familiar with massive errors and system crashes, but they don’t know that a computer should last at least for 5 – 10 years, and if a problem they can’t solve seems too big, they scrap their computer and get a new one. But that’s a waste of money, because almost every computer problem can be fixed.
A new and error free computer always performs at its top level without any problems. And when problems occur, over 85% are human mistakes. Common computer users forget to clean their registry, update programs and empty the recycle bin on a regular basis. But if these tasks are left undone, it’s very likely that computer problems will occur very soon. I know that inexperienced users rather spend money on a new computer than spend a couple of hours to perform a computer cleaning task. The only people who benefit from this reckless behavior are the computer industry, while the environment has to pay the price for the overuse of natural resources.
Solutions To Computer Problems!
Ok, the number one problem for computer users is that their computer has a decrease in its speed performance. This problem usually means that the computer is packed with files and programs, and a cleanup should solve the problem. It will take a longer time for your computer to find a file in a full hard disk, than in a half full hard disk, it’s just common sense. Remove all the files you don’t need or never use, usually the majority of the files are just files collecting dust in a forgotten folder on your computer. Another easy thing you can do to make your computer run faster is to defrag your hard disks on a regular basis.
A more serious problem that needs to be taken care of fast is operative system crashes, if the computer freezes or you get blue screens. You can use the Windows installation disk to recover and repair common errors, but if you got malware in your computer system, you must find an anti-malware program and remove the harmful software or file. Spyware and viruses can change settings in your registry and infect other files which can lead to a system crash if the computer user doesn’t have full virus protection installed. It is always a good idea to get a good spyware and virus protection installed and up to date, before anything bad happens.
If you hear noises and vibrations, you need to check the location of your hard disks, make sure the CPU fan works properly and check your graphic cards cooling system. A hard disk can vibrate against the metal construction inside the computer box and cause annoying noise. You can change the location or use rubber rings between the hard disk and the box to lower the noise. If you got an overheated CPU, you must get a new fan and if the cooling system for the graphic card isn’t effective enough, you can install a couple of extra fans inside the computer box to get a better flow of air.
When there is a computer problem, the solution is not far away. You can do much on your own, but if you need help, a computer diagnostic tool is a good choice. It can scan your computer and remove or repair broken and corrupted files, clean out unnecessary files and destroy spyware. If you get hardware issues, make sure you got the latest or the right drivers installed before you do anything else.
