Top 6 Fixes For Common PC Problems –
You’re working on something very important on your computer when, without any prior warning, you’re greeted with an error message, or even worse, windows keep restarting, the computer suddenly shuts down. You’re Working out what’s wrong with your computer and how to effectively repair it, can be quite difficult, especially if you’re a relative novice. In this article, I cover 6 common computer problems and how you can tackle them.
- Internet Is Slow –
Are you feeling like your browsing, music and video streaming are taking way too long load? The first thing you’ll want to do is verify that the speed issue is network related. To do this, simply visit any network speed test site, like Speedtest.net and run a simple test to see whether or not you are getting the speeds you paid for.
Minimum speeds that you record should be at least, 50% of the speeds you are said to be paying for, and your ping should be less than 100. If your results are not in line with these parameters, then it means there is something hogging up your bandwidth. The first thing you should check is that you don’t have any programs, like torrent client software, running in the background. If you close them, they will usually minimize to the Windows tray and continue to upload and download, using up a lot of bandwidth.
Next, make sure your network card drivers are up-to-date. You may also want to try turning your router off and on again. If it doesn’t have an off button (which is the case on most), then just unplug it, then plug it back in again.
If your speeds are still terrible after using all these methods, then maybe it’s time you contacted your ISP.
- Getting Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Errors –
Blue is often seen as a rather calming color, however, when people encounter the blue screen, coupled with some white text, the feelings they get is anything but calming. BSoDs are the most severe errors that you can encounter on your computer, and with that, they carry a lot of fear. However, in most instances, repairing such a problem may be as simple as doing a quick reboot. There are a number of reasons why these BSOD errors appear on your screen, such as:
- Defective hardware component(s)
- Corrupted application(s)
- Missing DLL files
- Out-dated drivers
The solution to a BSOD error depends on what is causing the error. On the error screen, you should be provided with a code number, which when researched, will give you possible solutions to the error.
- Computer Keeps Restarting –
Your computer constantly restarting could be the result of your Windows updating, which after installation requires a system reboot. So you should definitely verify that there are no Windows updates going on in the background because if there is, then you’re the only solution is patience.
Another reason why your computer is continuously restarting could be due to a mechanical failure – is your computer making strange sounds? Does it get really hot? If your computer is relatively old, then you may want to try dusting it, removing all the accumulative dust built up inside it. There are compressed air canisters that you can use for this task.
If problems continue to persist after adopting all said methods, then maybe it might be time you sought the help of a professional.
- Missing DLL Errors –
Dynamic Link Library (DLL) files continue data that the operating uses when carrying out specific functions. Over the cause of your systems life cycle, it may lose a DLL file or two due to many reasons. When the operating system is unable to locate a specific DLL file, it will no longer be able to carry out the associated function, which could be very important, depending on what it is.
If every time you attempt to carry out a specific function on your computer you receive an error message, it’s highly likely that the cause is a missing or corrupt DLL file. If the error(s) on your computer is due to a DLL file, then you can restore the file by simply downloading it off the internet.
- Computer Keeps Disconnecting –
There are several reasons why problems may occur on your wireless network. If your Wi-Fi signal is not strong, then it can lead to the slowness of connection and complete disconnect, so you’ll need to ensure that you’re always in range and that your connection strength is good. You also want to ensure that your wireless adapter has the most up-to-date drivers for your operating system.
If all of these requirements are met, but it continues to randomly disconnect, then you should definitely contact your ISP for additional help.
- Can’t Install Applications –
If the computer continuously fails to install a specific program, the cause could be something simple like not enough hard drive space. If this is the case, then you will need to create more space on your disc. Of all the problems you may encounter on your computer, this is probably one of the least problematic. Freeing up hard drive space is relatively simple, just delete files and folders that you no longer need. You should also consider uninstalling programs you haven’t used in a long time.
