So your computer has developed a fault that stops it from working correctly. What simple steps can you take to try and get it working at its full potential again? Here are three to try.
Restart the system
This may seem like a no-brainer, but it is definitely a solid place to start because it does solve quite a number of desktop and laptop issues. It’s quick and easy to do and should always be the first thing you try; if the problem persists, you can move on to further steps.
Run your antivirus software
This is something that should be done on a regular basis in any case, but if you notice a new problem, it is always worth doing an extra scan. This gives the software a chance to find and remove any new malicious programs that may have found their way on to the machine.
Remove recently installed programs
It could well be that a newly installed piece of software has caused a conflict with pre-existing programs or possibly the operating system, so it’s always worth uninstalling them to see if that solves the issue. If it does, you can try a re-install as chances are there was an issue with the first installation.
If none of the above solve the issue, it is time for you to seek out the professionals for your computer repairs in Southampton and let them get your machine fully up and running again.
