Are You Getting Trouble With Your Laptop? Then Follow These 5 Steps….

Whenever we encounter a computer or a laptop issues we certainly think of a mechanic or computer scientist to fix it up. But Is it possible to fix computer by yourself? Offcourse Yes. Fixing your computer or laptop is possible at home. If it has stopped working, you just have to follow the steps that we propose below to fix computer or laptop. If your laptop or computer does not start, do not go into a state of panic: there is a possibility that you can fix computer by yourself without having to take it to the technical service.
Below we explain possible causes why your computer does not start and different ways to fix your computer.

1. Check the charging source Laptops

This is one of the most common problems in laptops. There are several things that may be doing wrong in this regard: from the use of an incorrect power supply (with the wrong voltage), to a blown fuse in the plug.

It may also that your power supply has simply failed or that the battery does not work. Verify that the charger is suitable for your laptop, especially that they are from the same manufacturer.

Check also the fuse in the plug. Use a screwdriver to remove the fuse and install a new one, but first try plugging the charger into another outlet.

Verify that the problem is not the cable because sometimes the chargers are damaged. The weak points of the cable are at the ends connected to the central brick, and the part that connects to the computer. In this way Fixing your laptop could be way too easy.

Desktop computers

Sometimes, the sources of charge can also be a problem in desktop computers.It is worth checking the fuse in the plug and change it in case it is damaged to reconnect in order to fix computer.

Inside the tower there is also a fuse whose status you can check by removing the cover and opening it to see if this is really the reason why your computer does not turn on.

Another common problem is that the PC, although it turns on, shuts down unexpectedly while it is being used.

If the LED is on and shows that the power is coming, make sure the power button is connected and working properly.

2. Check the screen

Laptops

Try unplugging all external displays, including projectors and monitors to make sure that they are not preventing your laptop from booting Windows.

If the power LED on your computer turns on and you can hear the buzz of the hard drive and the fans, but there is no image on the screen, try darkening the room to the maximum to see if there is any image on the screen very dimly.

It is quite common to think that the laptop does not start, when in truth the only problem is the screen and not the computer itself.

If there is a faint image, perhaps the Windows login screen, it is likely that the screen inverter has failed. This component is responsible for changing the direct current coming from the battery or from the power supply to an alternating current required by the screen.

Replacing an inverter is not too complex a task if you are proficient with screwdrivers, but it is crucial that you acquire the right replacement part. Also, since investors are not exactly cheap, you can not afford to make a mistake.

If your laptop seems to boot well, but there is no image at all, it could be a failure on the LCD panel. It is possible to replace a screen of a laptop, although it is a difficult task, and screens are expensive.

That is why if you are in front of an old laptop, it is worthwhile to buy a new one.

Desktop computers

There is not much you can do to repair a damaged PC monitor, although it is much easier to replace in this case. You can use a different cable, or even replace the entire monitor to see if that is the problem.

3. Remove any connected USB or memory cards

If you have already checked that there is no problem with the power socket or with the screen of your computer or laptop, and your computer hangs before you start Windows it can be by the USB or devices that you have connected.

In this case, it is common to find the message “Operating system not found”. Most of the time, this means that BIOS is configured to try to boot from removable storage units (including memory cards) to fix computer.

It can also be some DVD that you have forgotten in the Blu-ray drive, so do not forget to check it.

4. Try a rescue disk

If you are seeing different messages with errors and there is no memory card, external hard drives or DVDs inserted and the computer is still not booting, try using a rescue disk.

If you have it, you can use the Windows DVD, and if you can not download (using another computer, obviously) a rescue disk image and burn it to a CD or DVD or transfer it to a USB stick.

Then you can start the system from the rescue disk and try to solve the problem with Windows to fix computer permanently.

If it is a virus that is causing the error, use a rescue disk from an antivirus, as this will also include the option to scan damaged files and remove the malware.

5. Start the computer in safe mode

Even if you cannot start your computer from Windows, you can do it in safe mode. Press the F8 key at the same time your computer tries to start and a menu will appear offering you the option to start in safe mode.

If you manage to start in safe mode, you can undo changes that may have caused the failure by causing your computer or laptop to not turn on.

You can try to uninstall any newly installed program, uninstall a recently updated disk or create a new user account in case the current one is corrupted.

6. Check if the hardware is defective or if it is incompatible

The failure may reside in a new memory or hardware that you have recently installed and that, because it is not compatible or because it is defective, is preventing your computer from starting.

If your motherboard has LED reading that shows the POST codes, look for the online manual to find out what the code that appears.

It can often be complicated for a built-in computer to boot. The best advice here is to disconnect everything except the minimum necessary to start the BIOS in order to fix computer up:

Motherboard
CPU (with heat sink connected)
Graphics card (if there is a graphics output on the motherboard, disconnect all connectable graphics cards).
One memory (remove any other and leave only the rod in slot 0)
Power supply


So I’m here to conclude my perennial lists of suggestions by saying that these are some of the basic tips and tricks that might prove helpful to you in a situation when you’re down to computers/laptops.
