Computer Repair for the Average Computer User

During one time or another all who read this article has had or will have problems with their computer. It seems that no sooner one problem is solved that another crops up. Even with software that I have been using for several years and am very familiar with using, when updates are ready and recommended, as soon as I download the upgrade I find difficulty using it without going through a get acquainted period. This period stops my regular activity until I again learn where everything is located. Sometimes before I get reacquainted with the word processor and/or the spread sheet software that I have been easily using, I wonder if my computer needs repair. Most of the time the only problem is getting familiar with the newer software updates of the software I have been using all the time. Repair is not needed!

But when I’m still in a quandary I don’t know which direction to go to find out if repair is needed. Since there are many ideas of troubleshooting software available over the internet, the problem that the average computer user finds is to determine which area of the computer to fix. Finding this out is difficult if the computer user is not familiar with programming software language and or files that are necessary for their computer to function on just everyday use. Files are so interrelated that if you delete something, you might make more problems at this point that you started with. Bad possibility! So to stay away from this, a repair genus is now needed.

One method I’ve found to be useful is to have the option of returning your computer to a previous state when you only had your original problem. This can be done when your computer has the option of “Restore” to a previous date when you knew your computer was operating decently. If this option has been set properly, you can go back to a previous time and/or date to start over again.

Another option to be used on a somewhat regular basis is defragmentation of your hard drive when you sense your computer is functioning slowly. This also is a capability of the operating system you have installed on your computer. Many of the functions that border on troubleshooting within the Windows operating systems are found through the “Control Panel”. Or the accessories and following tools selection.

Some fixes I’ve found are solutions that just require rebooting your computer. Many times a hard reboot is necessary when a restart will not do the trick. I say do the trick because most of the time when a hard reboot is done and a problem is then fixed, I have no idea what was fixed. If the fix is accomplished, I at that time don’t really care what was fixed, just that it was.

As far as I’m concerned I most often need help in finding computer problems/fixes since I’m not a computer science person or a programmer. I start looking for help I can get without having to take the computer in to a shop. If I can get help online, that is the most desirable option for me. Many computer problems are not part of the same corrupted files; I look for a company that addresses a large list of potential computer problems and solutions. So any company that has an excellent reputation and covers a wide range of help software is my ticket! I don’t have to haul my desktop in to a computer repair shop. I know a laptop computer is much lighter and easier to take into a repair shop, but the time to get it repaired might be undesirable. So the easiest, cheapest, and fastest computer troubleshooting and repair is what I want.
