Answer in Brief
Which technical difficulties did you face while using the computer? What did you do to overcome them?
Technical difficulties faced while using the computer and ways to overcome them are:
- Computer being too slow: If your computer hangs in between, or boots up in more than a couple of minutes, then be assured that there is some problem in its working. To overcome this problem, either check the hard drive or see whether too many processes are running in the background. If the hard drive is full, try to empty it by deleting the not so important files or storing them in another hard drive.
- Constant disconnection from Wi-Fi: These problems can occur due to several reasons (router, computer, ISP). If the Wi-Fi signal is weak, it can cause disconnections and slowness, so make sure the device is in the range and is getting decent reception. Also, check that the computer’s wireless adapter has up-to-date drivers. If none of this works, call ISP and see if they can help.
- Constant "security warnings" while Browsing: This problem is easy to fix. Check that the computer’s clock shows the correct time and date. If it doesn’t, right-click on the clock and select “Change date and time settings” to correct it manually.
- The computer keeps restarting: It may arise due to series of Windows Updates which require several reboots sometimes. If the restart process mentions “Updating Windows”, then have patience and let the windows be updated. It may also arise due to some mechanical problem. Due to this problem, the computer might become noisy or unusually hot. To solve this problem, one might need to clean the dust that accumulated inside the computer. Computer clean-up guide should be followed to do so. If the problem persists after cleaning the computer, run a virus scan and a malware scan. If all these methods fail to sort the problem, consider taking the computer to a specialist.
