It always reaches a time when one becomes lazy and at the same time is required to fix a computer here is how you do it. First of all you must give your PC a bit of rest as it cools down. If you are the type of person who rarely turns of his or her computer then the PC either begins to hang or even starts to overheat the best problem solver at that moment is to just switch the device of and unplug it from the switch in order for it not to spoil. If it is a laptop you can even remove its battery that is after holding the power button for some seconds. After some time reinsert the plug and open your computer.
The next thing you do is that you monitor if your PC become very hot, in this case you will be required to open up the CPU which in simple terms is the central processing unit. You first shut down the computer, and then take off any metallic object on your body either the jewellery or the ring on your fingers. This is in order for you to avoid being shocked or even causing sparks when you have opened up the cabinet, another thing you should not do is to wear clothing that produces a lot of static electricity as the sparks can cause damage to the hardware.
Diagnose the computer; most PC’s these days come with an in built diagnosis. First you power off your PC then after a while you power it back up, if either your computer is HP or Dell you are given instructions on what to press for it to immediately start up. Write down the error codes and look them up in the internet and if it’s hard consult the computer technician you know. The next thing you do is to open the CPU cabinet and look for temperature of metal chassis, if it’s temperature is high then the problem there is related to a heat issue.
The next thing you do is to check the device drivers, in most cases when one installs some of the applications and driver which in most cases leads to computer freezing and hanging. To avoid this you can check and even monitor the status of the divers. This is by looking at the device manager, if you see any yellow exclamation next to a device then there is a problem with the drivers.
