Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet


Hi readers this contents lets you through the way of how to know,verify your general PC problems and how to fix it on your own without wasting much time and also saving your money.Money and time are of course the two most valuable things that you should not waste unnecessarily,many people are beginners and learners and its common when you do something wrong you learn something from it and avoid repeating such mistakes in future.Today i am going to discuss the most frequently asked queries about the PC problems.
INTRODUCTION:Modern PC's are certainly marvels of technology and yet,for all their advances,computers still do crazy,inexplicable things.Even so there are a number of common issues you can diagnose fairly easily.Some of these are what seems like idiocy on the part of PCs like Why does my PC shut down without warning me?.Others occur when new hardware or software is introduced to your system which doesn't play well on your existing setup well to fix these problems you should know your PC to the fullest of the extent.Knowing your system thoroughly is like knowing your best friend because it helps you a lot.

I need some help from my PC.Where do i start?

Click the Start menu and choose Control Panel,'SYSTEM AND SECURITY'.Select "Review your system's status".Here Windows will alert you to any security issues or other problems that it thinks you need to address.At the bottom of the screen is an option labelled "TROUBLESHOOTER".Click this to explore further options.your system is the guide to your problem,for every problem the solution lies in itself your "Troubleshooter" helps you often how to solve the particular problem it is pre-enabled in windows itself.

My Friend is happy to look at my PC.Should i let them?

First check whether your system is out of warranty or not.Some tinkering and Hardware upgrades will void it.Then,if your friend is trustworthy enough to let loose near potentially sensitive files and confident of your repair abilities then let him take a look at them.Save your friend some time in trouble shooting the problem by providing a full fledged details of the problem when it started,what you were doing when it started,as well as the make and model of the machine and the inventory of the hardware installed on your computer.If you are unaware of your systems hardware you can find it for yourself by going to the Start menu->my computer-->system and properties or you can also right click on the My Computer Icon and select System and Properties.Within System Properties you can view what hardware your machine is running,Windows product key--invaluable should you ever need to reinstall the Operating System(OS) for e.x. Windows XP or Vista etc., and how well your system is performing.

How can i describe what's happened to my PC?

Problem steps recorder is invaluable here.Type it's name in the Start menu--->Search box and a macro recorder will appear on screen.Use this to show what has happened.
Any tech support or Computer Savvy friend may want to know the symptoms that may indicate when the problem occurred and what it may stem from.Note that most faults are caused by "inadvisable software installations". But before you draft in the backup,try a "System Restore". This acts like a time machine,returning the computer to an earlier state,such as before you installed any faulty program,it may well fix your problem.To attempt a system restore
follow the below given steps:-

  1. Go to the Start menu----> select Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel---->select System and Security.
  3. After selecting the System and Security menu select either find and fix problems or type System Restore in the search field at the top right.
A calendar highlights in bold the days when System restore points have been created.Ensure that you select a time that predates the time when the problem had occurred.Follow the prompts to allow windows to perform System restore.

My phone always hang-up after i received / accept a call, In addition speakerphone features does'nt work for every call.

This problem due to virus.
Restart your phone, scan your memory card with an updated antivirus (on your computer using a memory card reader) or if possible format the memory card after files are backup.. This will definitely fix you issue. You can try without the memory card and verify whether the problem persists or not.

Let me know if this doesn't help.

Good luck.
