    What’s Wrong With Your PC? The 4 Main Computer Issues

    What’s Wrong With Your PC? The 4 Main Computer Issues

    If you have noticed there is something wrong with your PC, but you’re not entirely sure what it might be, then you might need to think about what kind of issues that might relate to.

    As it happens, there are a few computer issues that are especially common, and which you might need to make sure that you are aware of, in case they happen to you.

    In this post, we’ll look at four of the most common of these, so you can make sure that you are fixing them as soon as possible and getting your machine up and running again.

    Slowing Down

    Have you noticed that your computer has been slowing down over time? This is something that happens to most computers eventually, and it’s likely that you are going to find it happens to yours sooner or later. If you are already experiencing that, then the good news is that there are plenty of ways to speed it up.

    Clearing files out, increasing the amount of RAM you have, and taking out background processes can all help here. If you need further help, you might want to get some professional assistance with the problem beyond that.

    Not Powering On

    It can be a really tense moment when you find that your PC is not powering on. You might fear the worst – that you have lost all your data and won’t be able to ever get it on again. However, most of the time, it’s not that serious, and it can actually be fixed up. If you have this issue, it’s usually best to take your computer to some professional computer repair services, as they will have the best chance of figuring out what needs to be done. Then you are going to have your PC up and running again in no time, with all your files intact.

    Keyboard Problems

    Perhaps you have noticed that your keyboard is no longer working as it used to. It might be completely kaput, or it might be that every other keystroke is not being recognized, for instance. There are all sorts of similar issues that can arise with any keyboard. If that happens, one thing you can try is simply upgrading or re-installing the driver for the keyboard, in the keyboard settings area on your PC. That might fix it unless the problem is with the hardware itself, in which case you can replace it with a silent mechanical keyboard if you wish to have a quieter workspace.

    Slow Internet

    A slow internet connection can be caused by a number of things. First of all, it might not even be happening on your end – it might be a problem with the ISP or Internet Service Provider. But it can also be issued with your router or the connection between the router and computer. And it might be something like your browser needing updating. With all of these things being possible, it’s important that you eliminate them one by one to see which is actually causing the issue. Then you can get back online in no time.

      Good post, thank you. I often had problems with my computer and in particular with my Macbook. The first problem was with the keyboard and sticky keys. I had to look for a MacBook repair in my city to get rid of the problem
