Fix Computer Problems

A computer is no exception to problems or faults. All the computer problems can be categorized into two types: software problem and hardware problem.

A software problem occurs when a computer program does not do the work it is designed to do. The software is the leading force behind the working of a computer system. And if any problem occurs in the software then it will not work properly. Any software problem can bring the computer to a halt or it can slow its performance.

Mentioned below are some of the most common software problems:

  1. Input and output problem
  2. Function problem
  3. Calculation problems
  4. Design problem
  5. Communication problem
  6. Testing problem
  7. Documentation problem

A hardware problem occurs when something wrong occurs with any physical part of a PC, such as motherboard, video display controller, mouse, keyboard, sound card, power supply, storage controllers, removable media devices, internal storage etc.

If you find any problem with your computer speed or performance then you can fix the problem by checking out your PC’s hard drive, or you can also check whether the external hard drive attached to your PC is working properly. Mentioned below are some of steps to check a Windows 7 computer hard drive for the slow performance problem:

  1. Click on “Start” button followed by “Computer”.
  2. Right-click on the drive which you want to check for problems, and click on “Properties”.
  3. Click on “Tools” tab followed by clicking the “Check now” option under “Problem checking”.
  4. There will be two options to select from: “Automatically fix file system problems” and “Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors”, you can choose any one option or both the options, if you want to check and repair both the file errors and physical errors.
  5. Click on “Start”.

In case of any problem, the computer behaves abnormally. You can fix computer problems yourself but if you’re unable to do so, then you must seek assistance from any experienced computer professional.
