Computer Won’t Turn On
One of the scariest things that can happen to your MAC or Windows computer is a failure to turn on at all. You press the little power button, and nothing happens. No beeps, clicks, clunks or whirs. Light on the monitor is on, but your computer is totally dead.
First of all, don’t panic! When people face that kind of problem, they tend to worry that all of the important data on their PC or MAC may be gone. Most of the time your documents and pictures are safe, just not accessible at the moment.
Computer Fails to Start
This can happen suddenly and without any visible cause. Sometimes, your computer begins to load, but after some time, it stops responding during the start up process. This problem can be caused by many factors.
Your computer could be trying to load windows from removable media. First of all, check and remove any CDs, DVDs, USB flash drives and memory cards. Remove any digital cameras or external hard driv. Try to restart your computer. If it fails again, something else is causing the problem. If your desktop displays an error during startup, this is probably caused by a hardware configuration problem. Your motherboard, CPU, memory or graphic card may develop a problem.
Computer Freezes and Restarts
There can be two kinds of problems causing your computer to freeze and restart. First, and the most probable, is a software problem (Windows or Mac). Viruses, Trojans, Rogues and other adware can cause system instability. When the system detects a problem, it restarts to prevent further damage. These problems can be solved by cleaning unwanted programs and spyware, updating drivers or reinstalling the operating system. Our computer technicians can test this as part of our free diagnostics
The second and more serious is a hardware problem. Hardware overheating is typically the most probable cause for computer freezing and restarting.
When your machine overheats, it gets unstable and sends a signal to restart. There are more hardware faults that can cause a computer to freeze. Faulty power supply, graphic card, processor or even a hard drive can cause this kind of problem.
Computer is Too Slow
Computers become slow over time. Corrupt and redundant files can quickly build up in a computer. This causes the computer to be slow and sluggish, and leads to crashes, system errors and serious slowdowns when you need your PC the most. Often, this happens to older PCs, but this can happen to new computers, too.
Printer, Keyboard or Mouse Doesn’t Work
Problems with peripherals can happen suddenly. Yesterday your printer, mouse or keyboard were working fine. You turn your computer on today and boom – no printer, mouse or keyboard at all. In most cases this problem can be caused by driver issues. First of all, try to connect your faulty hardware to another USB port. Sometimes, this helps to repair minor faults.
In some cases the problem can be with faulty hardware. If none of your peripherals connected through USB are working, this is a probable motherboard fault. If you have a WI-FI printer, and it is not working, this can be caused by bad drivers or wrong WI-FI router configuration.
Screen Doesn’t Show Anything
You turn on your desktop computer. You hear it start to work, and Windows start to load, but your screen doesn’t show anything or displays a “no signal found” message. This can happen for many reasons. If you moved your computer recently, please check all your cables. They can be slightly loose and not send the proper signal. If the cables are okay, you should try to connect your screen to another computer. It is possible that your monitor may be faulty.
Sometimes, your screen shows nothing because of a faulty graphics card or other hardware. If the steps mentioned above did not solve your problem, you should contact us.
