IS YOUR PC GIVING YOU PROBLEMS? SOME COMMON ISSUES AND HOW TO REPAIR THEM
When it comes to computer problems, Murphy’s Law never fails to ensure that they happen at the most inconvenient time.
And unless you can rely on your technology-savvy teenager to get you out of trouble, computer problems can be disastrous. Is it possible to fix it yourself or should you leave the PC repairs to the experts, regardless of how urgent it is.
Before you take your pc for external computer repairs, Perth company Domain Digital says that it’s possible to fix some common PC problems at home. Here are some of their suggestions :-
You’d be surprised as to how often the computer repairs technicians are called out to sort out PC problems, only to find that the power supply has been turned off, or the cables aren’t inserted securely or connected properly. You’d also be surprised how often a computer that ‘isn’t working’ has its screen switched off or a loose connection between the monitor and the CPU !.
Before placing the call to the computer repair shop, try re-starting the machine a couple of times.
A slow computer or a frozen one can be the result of many different problems. A full memory may be the problem, so it’s worth deleting old or unimportant files, cookies and temporary internet files to free some up – and if slow internet speed is the problem, always try turning the modem on and off (for at least 30 seconds) before calling for help.
Some of the biggest culprits of computer problems are of course viruses, spyware, malware etc – and these aren’t always easy to sort out at home Doing an internet search for instructions and tutorials on how to load antivirus/malware protection or on how to clean your compute up is a possibility, but often the viruses infect your computer very deeply and it requires professional help, says Domain Digital, a Perth computer repair specialist.
When the mouse, keyboard or printer aren’t working – also check the cabling first and also check for any dust build-up inside the equipment.
With many pc repairs companies now providing remote support, it’s often far quicker and more effective to call in the experts rather than try to DIY.
