1- Computer stops abruptly

Problem: The computer suddenly stops in the middle of its working.

Solution: If the computer stops suddenly although it was working fine, it is probably a power supply failure. Check if your computer is plugged in properly. If it still does not work, check if your power supply is working fine or not by plugging in another device.

2- The screen doesn’t show anything

Problem: The PC is on, but the screen is not showing anything.

Solution: If the computer is on, but the screen is blank, there is most likely a connection problem between the computer and the screen. First of all, check if the monitor is plugged into the power socket properly. If it still doesn’t work, there is probably a technical issue, for which your laptop will need professional help or repairing.

3- Abnormally Functioning Operating System or Software

Problem: The PC operating system or any other software is being unresponsive.

Solution: If the operating system or other software is either unresponsive, then restart your computer. You may also want to install antivirus software. To avoid this happening in the future, install authentic anti-virus software.

4- Windows do not boot

Problem: Computer boots windows, but with rather difficulty.

Solution: If you are having trouble booting the Windows, this might be on the windows installation process. For having this resolved, reinstall your windows using the Windows recovery disk.

Problem: The computer screen freezes in the middle of working.

Solution: When the computer screen freezes, the reason can be either: insufficient ram, registry conflicts, corrupt or missing files, or spyware. For having this resolved, press and hold the power button till the computer does not turn off. After that, restart it, and try resolving the issues mentioned before, so the issue may not persist.

6- Computer is Slow

Problem: The computer is slow to the level of frustration.

Solution: If your computer is slower than normal, the issue can be resolved only by cleaning the hard disk of the pc. For that, you might want to get rid of the unwanted files. You may also want to install a firewall, anti-virus, and anti-spyware tools, and schedule regular registry scans. Furthermore, external hard drives also help to a great extent in this regard.

7- Loud/Strange Noises

Problem: Your PC produces loud-strange voices. 

Solution: Loud and strange noises coming from the computer usually indicate that either there is a hardware malfunction or fan malfunction. Hard-drives before failing make noises. As for the fans, they can be replaced easily.

Problem: The Internet is slower than usual, or slower than its actual or potential speed.

Solution: To improve the internet speed, clear up the cookies of the browser which you are using. You may also need to frequently clear the temporary internet files. For that matter, in the Windows search bar, type ‘%temp%’ and hit enter to open the temporary files folder.

Problem: The computer generates more than usual heat while it is operating.

Solution: When your PC is lacking an adequate cooling mechanism, it will over generate heat while it is working. To avoid making your PC excessively hot, give it a rest, and turn it off. Moreover, the working of the PC fan could also be checked for that matter.
