Identifying Common Computer Problems

We’ve all had that feeling of dread when you suspect that your computer is failing or broken. Your heart starts to beat faster and you get a bit nauseous. The first thing you worry about is losing information that is on your computer. All that information including access to email, passwords, logins, favorites, histories, pictures and so much more could be lost or damaged.

Most computer issues can be separated into two areas: hardware and software. It’s not hard to learn which area is causing the problem and you may even be able to repair the problem.

Hardware
Listen for problematic or strange noises. These types of noise can precede major failures. For instance if the start-up winding sound which is normal gets louder, this could indicate the first stages of hard drive failure.

If you computer unexpectedly shuts down, but you can turn it back on; this is a symptom of a possible overheating issue. Check to ensure that your vents and fans are not dirty or blocked. Clean them if necessary, and if the problem continues, it’s time to call a professional.

Software
If your computer is experience software problems, you may notice that its start-up time is getting slower, the computer is slower in general and odd things are happening. You may have an operating system problem or a virus. You should run your antivirus program immediately.

After running the antivirus program, make sure your operating system is up-to-date. Install any updates that you need to and then reboot your computer. If this does not fix the problem, perform the System Restore function.
