Your PC or laptop can be beset by many problems, usually when it's most inconvenient. I can help you avoid these before they end up costing the earth or a failed computer. Below is a small list of the most common issues which can result in an early computer repair or laptop repair.
The fans in your computer pull cooler air in and push out the hot air to keep things running cool. Any dust in the air gets sucked in too and sticks to the internal components causing them to heat up further. Laptops are espcially prone to overheating.
Quite often caused by the same problem above but if it's noisy when you first switch it on then calms down a faulty power unit is a possibility. Get it checked and replaced before it does real damage to the internal components.
Viruses, malware & spyware
One of the biggest problems with the internet. Even just visiting a website can lead to a virus infection. Watch out for messages suggesting you have a virus and links to get it cleared. These often actually install further viruses and are very hard to remove with standard anti-virus systems.
Slow running & lost internet connections
Over time installs, updates and removing files and programs leave bits of files that do nothing other than slow your machine down. This also contributes to low space on your system resulting in lost connections.
Intermittent errors, freezing & restarts
All symptons of a faulty power unit, memory,CD/DVD drive, failed driver or program installs or system updates. It can get so bad your system could stop working altogether.
Computer wont start
Usually a physical problem with one of your components or a bad software install for a device (called a driver).
Loss of important files and data
All of the above can cause you to lose data and your important files so it's important to backup. Something not usually thought about till its too late.
Your internet security
It's a jungle out there on the world wide web. Viruses & scams are just a couple of the dangers of surfing the net. If you have a wireless network it needs securing otherwise anyone could use or even hijack your internet and get you in serious trouble.
One of the biggest problems is not knowing what to look out for when installing programs or using the internet. Knowledge is the key.
