There are common computer issues that you can learn to solve yourself, especially if it’s your work computer. Sure, you can always call the IT team to help you out. But what if no one is available to help you? Will you stop working, even if the solution may be a very simple one that you can do on your own? We are here to tell you that most of these annoying issues that you face with your computer are easy to learn about and solve. Here we have collected some of the most common computer problems and how to solve them, so you are not forced to waste your money or time anymore. 

Slow responses

Sometimes when you give orders to your computer, such as clicking to open a page, typing, or just scrolling, you feel like there is a delay. Like your computer is not picking up the orders at the same pace you are giving them in, it becomes too slow.

Solution:

There are three main reasons that could be slowing your computer down. The most common one is always a full hard drive. If your windows partition is full, your desktop is jammed with folders, and there is hardly any space for you to download a new song, then it’s time to delete unnecessary files. The other two reasons might be viruses and spyware. Just install the latest version of a good antivirus and antispyware for the program to be able to eliminate all the bad files.

Windows Update Issues 

We’ve all heard of the problems that happen when Windows updates. Whether it’s done automatically or manually, it’s an issue we dread, especially when we think of some of the issues that pop up after the update. Nevertheless, updates are necessary, and there’s no avoiding them. Besides, they will make sure you avoid any problems with your windows and help you to stay protected. But what if you face a problem with installing the windows update? 

Solution:

The first thing most of us do is restart and try running the update again. Maybe even the windows troubleshooter will be of use. You will usually find an error message that explains the reason behind the failure to update, which can be a quick fix. 

Blank or frozen screen 

A frozen screen is probably one of the worst things we can come across. Not only is it absolutely annoying, solving it usually boils down to the most basic of remedies: Reboot. You might risk losing unsaved work, but it’s the only solution. If this happens quite often, then this might be a sign of insufficient RAM. You might need to consider a RAM upgrading to fix this issue once and for all. 

There is nothing more annoying than when your computer crashes, becomes unresponsive, or gives you a black/blue screen without any clarification as to where the error is. One of the oldest tricks in the book, when you are facing a weird issue with your computer, is to google the solution. Computer problems might get very technical, but you will always be able to find articles that tackle the issues in a way that most people can understand and apply. If all your attempts failed, consider consulting an expert to help you out. Or maybe you can ask a friend who knows their way around the computer and windows problems you are facing.
