Desktop Repair Services
Desktops are powerful devices and are helpful in assisting with numerous tasks. With that offered versatility, there are no shortages of obstacles that can hinder a desktop operating smoothly. Speed issues, failure to display, random crashes, and computer viruses are just a few of the many issues that can affect your desktop. When correctly diagnosed, these issues can be addressed. Once done your desktop should be in optimal condition. Below, we discuss some common issues you may encounter.
The main reason a desktop may suffer from slower speeds is the presence of a computer virus. Computer viruses can appear in a few different forms ranging from Malware, Spyware, Trojans and adware. These are all common forms of viruses and each can disrupt your desktop differently. Viruses slow your system by taking up computer resources. Spyware attempts to steal your passwords and other critical information which can cause serious privacy breaches. Trojans disguise themselves as another program and can let Malware bypass a computer’s security measures. Adware involves the use aggressive popups while browsing. It aims to move more viruses onto your desktop. A great preventative measure is to run frequent virus scans on your computer using a trustworthy antivirus program.
Blue Screen Of Death
Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) is a frustrating occurrence with computers that is linked to a system failure. Each variant of BSOD will have an associated code that will highlight the cause of the issue. While BSOD instances can almost always be resolved, the code may indicate that a more vigorous fix is needed. An example of a simple fix BSOD would be an incorrectly installed component. A severe code could show that there is a serious error with the desktop.
A computer failing to correctly display is a common issue. This could be a result of incorrectly installed hardware or even failed parts. Modern motherboards use ‘QCode displays’ that can explain the cause of the display issue within the system. Older desktops largely rely on beep codes, formed with a small speaker installed on the motherboard. This beep code will act similar to the QCode display and help diagnose the problem.
