Computer Problems and Corresponding Hardware Solutions

If you find your computers or systems suffer from some sort of a deficiency, chances are you can correct this by choosing an appropriate component upgrade. If you don’t know what component you need to correct your system’s deficiency, no problem; here, I will provide you with some of the most common computer problems, and the corresponding component which will assist in correcting the problem.

Slow Boot Time, Sluggish Program Launches

I once had a computer which took a full ten minutes from launch to usability. That’s a long time, and granted that the computer was running several programs from launch, still seems a bit excessive. If your workstation or server suffers from a slow boot time and sluggish launch times for programs, then you will want to look into a solid state. SSDs boast significant improvements over traditional hard disk drives, chief of which is speed. A SSD hosting programs and operating systems will increase the efficiency of boots and executions, translating into ultra fast boot times and program loads.

Staggering Performance, Freezes, Slow in Processing

The usual culprit of such symptoms is the processor. As the main brain of a computer system, the processor is tasked with all mathematical and logical functions, and thus any deficiency in processing power will manifest across a variety of applications. As more processes are tasked to the CPU, you will notice a “bottlenecking” of instructions which can cause staggered performance, “glitch” behavior, freezing, and general slowness. A processor with a higher clock rate or more cores can prove an effective solution, provided the processor is in the same family.

Staggering Frame Rate, Insufficient Video Output

These are two separate problems, but we will tackle them as one since they are addressed by the same fix. If you notice, during high resolution graphic displays or rendering jobs, that the frame rate or visual quality is insufficient, a new video card is warranted. A video card with a larger amount of dedicated graphics memory (the standard as of this writing is GDDR5) will correct this problem. If you lack sufficient video outputs, a video card with multiple HDMI, VGA, or DVI ports will allow for dual, triple, or quadrupled extended displays.

Slow Performance When Initiating Multiple Programs

If you find that your system has sufficient processing power but still performs sluggishly when multitasking, chances are you can solve this by configuring additional memory. A high-gigabyte memory kit can supply additional multitasking power for an enterprise server, for example; find the appropriate RAM for your system and you should be able to return to optimized multitasking applications. Thank you for reading, and I hope to have provided you some potential solutions for your next computer expansion project.

USB Flash Drives

Wireless Keyboard

A work desk that is full of clutter and loose wires can be hazardous, not to mention very annoying. You can easily get confused with all the wires and have problems identifying each of the gadget connector. But thanks to technology, we now have wireless keyboards which tackles this problem.

The wireless keyboard actually looks like the same as a standard keyboard. The only difference is that the latter uses infra-red beams to transmit typed data to the computer.

Merriam Webster define infrared rays as electromagnetic radiation with a longer wave length than light but shorter when compared to radio waves. The computer has a radio frequency receiver or a Bluetooth antenna which receives the data transmitted to it by the keyboard. When using the wireless keyboard, it ought to be placed in such a way that the receiver is within range of the infrared beam.

There are certain advantages and disadvantages with wireless keyboards. The most common advantage would be the reduced clutter and increased amount of space. Many of us can imagine wishfully what our home tables or office desks may look like without the wires all over the place.

The quantity of clutter may additionally be reduced by introducing a wireless mouse too. They are particularly safe where those of us who are prone to accidents are involved. Also the space now accessible may be put to a different use.

In addition, due to the adaptability these keyboards have, they allow the user more ease and less strain. This is ideal for those who have to sit in one position for a long period of time. As you can imagine it would reduce the hospital bills where backaches and joint pains are involved. The installation is also more convenient.

Without all the cabling there is less disarray and less time is consumed which would otherwise have been used in hooking up the various wires. An additional advantage is that with wireless keyboards, more than one user can access the same computer at a time. This also saves on time.

The disadvantage of wireless keyboards is that there is not many to choose from. This would also mean that additional costs will be accrued as wireless keyboards are expensive. Additionally, there have also been reports of reduced functionality of this type of keyboard. The infra-red beam may also be interfered with specially when the user is a certain distance away from the computer and an item comes in between then the bandwith is interfered with.

Ways Cleaning the inside of Computer to Prevent Damage

Normally, when something of ours needs to be cleaned, it’s apparent to us. When our dishes need to be cleaned they fill up the sink, when our clothes need to be washed they fill up the hamper, but when our computer needs to be cleaned, it doesn’t show any signs of being dirty, or does it?

Let us begin with why we need to clean our computers. The inside of a computer contain chips that maintain a high temperature while running. How high a temperature really? High enough that unless the chips receive the right amount of air flow they could easily fry. The difference between a cool computer and a total meltdown is simple air flow. Cooling is such a simple process but definitely one of the most important processes to a computer. It is also the number one reason why you should clean your computer on a regular basis.

While your computer may look clean on the outside with regular dusting, on the inside, the components of your computer could be covered in dust and animal fur. Especially if your CPU sits on the floor, even more so if you also have carpet and you probably have the worst case scenario if you additionally have pets.

When dust and animal fur get inside your computer through the air intake vents, it attaches itself to the internal components, and over months of building up, it prohibits air from properly flowing around all the parts. Once the air flow is restricted, the processor could start to slow down so that it doesn’t risk overheating. Or the chips could eventually degrade and at some point they would burn themselves out. No matter what the case what you will have on your hands is a computer that has lost its efficiency and that runs a lot slower than it should, or dies altogether. In fact, it is actually very easy to mistake the slowness due to overheating for other problems such as spyware, viruses or lack of memory.

Luckily cleaning the inside of your computer is very inexpensive and very simple. Whether you feel comfortable about handling the task yourself or you take your computer to a local computer expert the process and cost should be minimal.

Lastly, now that you know why cleaning your computer is so important to the health and longevity you should know how often to clean it. While the frequency that you clean the inside will depend on whether the CPU sits on the floor, whether you have carpet and pets, it is a good rule of thumb to clean the insides every 6-12 months, and more often if you have several pets.
