Computers are quite the machines, aren’t they? They have revolutionized humankind and entered humanity into the digital age, with endless applications. Although everything today revolves around and through computerized technology, they are not as invincible as they too can encounter numerous problems ranging from hardware, software and a ton of other issues.

The common issues faced by the public are quite simple and can be trouble shooted by the user itself following its said guidelines or seeking the external help of a computer technician. A few examples of the common problems arising are listed below.


Won’t turn on?

This is actually among one of the most common problems that could occur to a computer. This situation arises when the computer powers on meanwhile the screen still appear to be pitch black. It is a never-ending wait that could take forever to turn on. In simple terms, it never finished booting. This may be due to software problems or even hardware errors. In such cases, it is best to seek professional and certified help.

Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD)

This is a quite serious problem that needs to be handled without panic and desperation of data loss. It appears as an entirely blue screen with one or two lines of text stating that your computer came across some problem and needed to reboot. Don’t panic in such situations, as most of the times this problem can be handled with the help of a simple reboot as stated on the screen. BSoDs are usually a result of damage hardware, corrupted software and DLL files or driver errors. The irony is that the computer itself displays the necessary codes and steps to follow in such situations.

Error 404

Error 404 or page not found is an error that arises from incorrect address or HTML entered. These errors can also occur from trying to access pages that no longer on the internet or the link selected is wrong. These errors can be compromised by rechecking the address entered, refreshing it and moving up the directory until you find the accessible page.


Missing DLL file

DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library that stores specific information and data on how to perform particular functions. Occasionally the computer is prone to damage or corrupted DLL files which give an awkward response. The solution to the computer acting weird on damaged DLL files is to download these files again and restore them.
