13 Common Computer Problems And Their Solutions
Common Computer Errors
Most bloggers at some stage will encounter a problem with their computer. Here are a few solutions to common problems:
Computer faults are extremely prevalent, and every computer user may encounter a variety of different issues. As a result, computer users should get familiar with the most common computer problems and the remedies to these problems.
1. Viruses, Spyware and Trojan Horses
One of the most common factors that contribute to computer problems is the presence of viruses, spyware and Trojan horses.
Other factors include corrupted registry entries, faulty hardware, insufficient memory, a low-capacity hard drive, a slow CPU, and overcrowding computers with numerous software applications.
Throughout this article, I’ve assembled a list of the most frequently encountered computer problems, along with their answers, that most bloggers would encounter.
2. Computer Very Slow
This is a very common problem that can be caused by a variety of factors including having too many programmes running at startup, having insufficient RAM, having a slow processor, having spyware running in the background, having errors in the Windows registry, and having a large number of garbage files on the hard disc.
What is the Solution?
Cleaning and fixing the Windows registries, expanding memory, clearing temporary files, deselecting the programmes that startup with your computer and uninstalling unneeded software applications can all help to alleviate this issue to a significant degree.
3. The Network Server Is Not Accessible
In a networked environment, every computer is reliant on the server for login authentication, file access, internet and printer access, and resource sharing.
In addition, every computer must communicate with the server over the network. Users find the downtime and communication failures with the server to be extremely inconvenient and unpleasant, and they complain about it.
Check both ends of the network cable and make sure that the RJ-45 connectors attached to the LAN card and hub/switch are properly hooked into the devices they are intended for.
Ping the server’s IP address to ensure that you receive a response from the server.
Check to see that your server is up and running properly.
A huge number of apps operating on the server, as well as simultaneous access to the server by a large number of users, can cause the server’s performance and speed to degrade significantly.
4. Computer Virus and Spyware
Because certain viruses and spyware are responsible for communication failure, it is important to scan your computer with an up-to-date antivirus programme.
Replace your LAN card with a new one, assign a different IP address to it, and then attempt to connect to the server again.
The computer becomes unresponsive or freezes due to:
- Missing.dll files,
- a corrupted registry,
- insufficient RAM, and
All the above can cause the server to operate poorly and to lock up regularly. This problem can be resolved by scanning a computer with an antivirus and antispyware programme, cleaning and fixing the registry, and increasing the amount of RAM available.
5. The PC Will Not Start
This problem is exacerbated by faulty power cables, power extensions, and power supplies, all of which contribute to it.
Performing a one-by-one inspection of each of the above components can help identify the malfunctioning component.
Simply replace the faulty component with a new one, and your computer will be operational again.
6. The computer restarts on its own
Among the possible causes of this problem are a faulty cooling fan and power supply as well as viruses and spyware.
7. The computer’s memory consumption is at its limit
Increasing the page file and physical memory can help you solve this problem if your computer’s memory is less than the required amount for running specific applications, swapping memory chips between computers, or scanning your computer for viruses and spyware, for example.
8. The Default Home Page Of The Browser Has Been Modified
This is most likely a spyware issue, and scanning the computer with an up-to-date anti-spyware tool will likely resolve the problem completely.
9. The Computer’s Clock Is Out Of Sync
If you notice that your computer’s clock is losing time on a regular basis, you should replace the CMOS battery.
10. My PC Is Unable To Establish A Connection To The Internet
Check your IP address and gateway address, scan your computer for viruses and spyware, check your network cables, and make sure that the server’s or gateway’s firewall application is not preventing HTTP requests from your PC.
11. Noises coming from the computer
Noisy components include faulty RAM, VGA, hard disc, sound card, processor, and other electronic components.
To begin, double-check that each hardware item is properly connected to the PC. If the problem persists, replace the damaged hardware component with an identical new one.
12. The Computer Locks Up Or Freezes
Missing .dll files, viruses, faulty registry, defective RAM and spyware slow down the performance of the server and it locks up frequently. Scanning a PC with the antivirus and antispyware program, cleaning and repairing the registry and increasing RAM can solve this issue.
The Computer Won’t Boot
Faulty power cable, power extension, and power supply all contribute to this problem. Checking one by one each of the above components can pinpoint the problematic part. Simply replace that part with a new one and you’re computer is okay. A computer may also reboot itself, defective cooling fan, power supply, RAM, viruses, and spyware can cause this to happen.
These are just a few of the issues that you may encounter on a day-to-day basis. Ransomware is like a frigid rush of wind that makes it impossible to relax.
Brr! Wrapping your PC in an anti-virus programme can help you from feeling the chill.
Now is the perfect moment to set one up if you don’t already have one.
If you do, check to see if it’s up to date and active.
