Your computer is probably the most important and valuable thing you own. Because of this, it makes sense that your computer would be one of the first things to go wrong. No matter how careful you are, the inevitable happens: something goes wrong. Maybe the hard drive crashes. Maybe the screen gets cracked. Even if you’re a careful PC user, something is bound to go wrong at some point. The good news is that getting your computer back in working order is not that difficult. All you need is a few basic tools, a little time, and a bit of know-how. There are many different reasons why your computer might not be working properly. It could be that you have a virus or spyware on your computer. It could be that the hard drive has crashed. Perhaps you have a software problem. Regardless of the reason, you can fix the problem by following these steps: Remove the electrical power from the computer.
If you’re having trouble with a program or a game, you can try a few troubleshooting techniques. You can temporarily turn off antivirus software, or you can uninstall and reinstall the program to see if that fixes the problem. If your screen is not responding,
Use a computer reset button
If none of these steps fix the problem, you can always resort to the “old faithful” of computer repairs: resetting the computer. A reset button is a small device that you can connect to your computer through a USB port. When you push the button, it sends a signal to the computer that resets it to its original settings. This is useful when a program is wonking or freezing on the screen, or if the computer simply will not turn on.
Boot the computer in “factory settings”
If resetting your computer does not work, you can try booting the computer in “factory settings.” This will completely restore your computer to its factory state, making all the settings that you’ve modified on your computer completely void. This will solve most problems with saved data.
Format the hard drive
If resetting and booting in factory settings do not work, you should try formatting your hard drive. This will completely wipe all the information on your hard drive, including all your saved data. Windows will ask if you’re sure you want to do this, so make sure you understand the consequences of this before formatting! While formatting a hard drive, you should also consider reformatting your computer’s system drive, which is usually the C: drive on newer computers.
Check the cables and connectors
Make sure all your cables and connectors are connected properly. This includes your power supply, motherboard, hard drive, fans, and video card. If you’re experiencing problems with your computer, it’s quite possible that one of these components is not working properly. In which case, you need to make sure that it’s connected securely and that it’s not broken. You should also make sure that you’re not pairing two separate components like an AC power adapter and a motherboard.
Check the power supply
If you’ve disconnected all your other devices and your power supply is still not working, you should check the power supply. This is the most common cause of problems with computers. The power supply is the part of the computer that converts your electrical current into a stable voltage that the rest of the computer can use. If you’ve disconnected all your other devices and your power supply is still not working, you should check the power supply. This is the most common cause of problems with computers. The power supply is the part of the computer that converts your electrical current into a stable voltage that the rest of the computer can use.
Test the video card and monitor
If you’ve booted in “factory settings” and the computer still isn’t working, you can test the video card and monitor to see if they’re faulty. Before you start, you should know that some computers will not boot in multi-high mode (for example, the Lenovo Ideapad). In these cases, you should first try a different video card. If the computer still will not boot in multi-high, you should check the card itself. If the monitor is fine, then you know the video card is faulty. You should also make sure that the power supply is connected to the motherboard and not the video card.
Clean out thedust and debris
Your computer is probably dusty, which can affect its performance. To improve your computer’s performance, you should clean the case, the PSU, and the CPU fan. To clean the PSU, connect a power supply to it and let it run for a while. You should also clean the CPU fan because dust on this can affect its performance. You can also try to shake the computer to dislodge any dust that might be in there.
Wrap up: Test the computer again, and enjoy your repaired computer
Sometimes, the solution is as simple as re-testing the computer and hoping for the best. Sometimes, when you re-test your computer, you’ll notice that the problem has gone away. In other cases, you may need to try a few different things, but in the end, you’ll get it working again. If you’ve gotten this far, you should feel confident that you can repair your computer. With a little bit of know-how, you can get your computer back to working order in no time.
