When Is It The Right Time To Call In a Computer Repair Service?


Are there times when you use your computer and recall the good old days when it was fast? Unless you are the sort who makes maintenance their top priority, then there is a chance that you may not encounter problems related to your laptop or computer. However, if you ignore possible errors in your computer, then it is likely that it will soon crash and you won’t be able to use it again.

We all know that even the most stable machine is not safe from failing hardware, buggy software, and sometimes different other problems. For businesses and home users, PC problems prove to be a massive headache and sometimes bring a halt to their business productivity, or their leisure browsing time.

Here are a few reasons why your computer maybe facing problems.

When Do You Need Professional Services?

There could be countless other reasons why your computer maybe working at a snail’s pace, rather than a smooth running machine, however, here are the most common problems businesses and home users face, and that’s when they may need to call in experts.

  • Temporary and redundant files taking up excessive space in the hard drive causing slow performance
  • Fragmented, cluttered file system and registry in the hard drive
  • Unnecessary errors such as programs launching on their own at start up
  • Effects of adware, malware and viruses that soon crash the hard drive
  • Unexpected memory crash, due to the lack of RAM
  • Abnormally functioning software or programs
  • Frozen screen
  • Overheating, etc.

What Can You Do?

If you decide to repair the computer or laptop all by yourself, then make sure that you “backup” data before you carry out the task. You can take image backup (this means take snap shots of your system, for further details, you can ask us!). However, manual back up is a good choice and helps to ensure that your system data can restore once you repair the corrupt system. Once the back is complete, here are some precautionary steps you should follow.

  • Clean up and declutter your systems redundant and temporary files
  • You can upgrade the RAM
  • Check which programs are loading at the start up
  • Scan your computer for viruses
  • Check your machine for build ups of dust and or pet hairs
  • Finally, upgrade to a SSD (Solid State Drive).

You could also use the in-built tools in Microsoft (that’s if you know how to use them). There are many other different tools available from third parties, but they can cost you much more as compared to the in-built ones.
