Problems with your computer? Before you take it to the technician, follow one of these four tips to easily repair it at home
We launch a program and the computer doesn't respond. We try to open a new page on the browser and get no response. We move the mouse and the cursor stays in the same place. What has happened to the computer? Very simple, it's probably broken. What to do in these situations? Many people would tell you to take your PC in for service, but that's not always the best option.
It doesn't mean that if your computer doesn't respond to commands, it's broken. The problem could also be much simpler than we assume. It could be stuck due to an error in loading the program. And in such cases, restarting the computer is enough to get everything back to normal. You don't have to be a computer wizard to understand that many computer problems can be solved on your own. Without going to a service center and spending money. Here are 4 ways to fix your computer yourself.
Restart your computer
The simplest and most immediate solution in most cases is also the only one possible. If your computer is completely frozen, restart it. And you'll see that once you turn it back on, everything will work for the best. It may seem like a no-brainer, but in some cases the computer needs to "restart" its processes and clear the memory in use. Press the power button vigorously and everything will be as it was before.
Clear your cache
Is the Internet not working? Is the modem on and working, but the browser won't load any pages? Before you call your carrier's customer service, clear your browser cache. You will lose the history with all the last pages you visited, but the Internet will probably work again. This isn't the ultimate solution (in many cases the problem is more complicated to solve and clearing the cache isn't enough), but it's a good place to start. And above all, it's very simple: all browsers allow you to clear the cache simply by going into the settings.
Scan for antivirus
If your computer is slow and shows "signs of impatience" it's very likely that you've been infected with malware. And before you are forced to format your entire computer, you need to act fast and eliminate the virus. To do so, you need to install an antivirus (in case your PC doesn't have one) and then carry out a scan to look for the malware. Once the scan is done and the problem is found, you will have to follow the wizard to eliminate the virus.
Reinstall the problematic program
You have tried opening the same program dozens of times, but the result is always the same: error screen. You don't have to worry, the computer is not broken. Most probably the installation failed. Our advice to "fix your computer" is to uninstall the software and start over with the installation. If the program is installed correctly, you will see that it will work without showing any error screens.
