Computer breakdowns: the six most common causes


In order for a laptop to last as long as possible, you need to pay attention to some points in its operation. About them – in the material Zoom.

Did your computer crash quickly? Perhaps the reason for this is some of the points below.

  1. Overheating problems… It can be called the mortal enemy of the computer. At the same time, the processor may work worse or even turn off altogether. Long-term operation with overheating can quickly destroy fans, batteries, and the processor. If you have a desktop computer, then to solve the problem you need to provide sufficient air flow and you need the number of fans, vents. It is necessary to place the case further away from places that can trap heat. As for the laptop, try to work on it only on a flat surface. Also, do not leave it in high temperature rooms, blow dust out of the device from time to time.

  2. Refusal to clean the computer… The computer needs to be cleaned from dust and various debris. Also, refrain from eating and drinking near a laptop or desktop computer: you can easily damage their components if, for example, you accidentally spill coffee on the keyboard.

  3. Sloppy handling of the laptop… Some people like to use the laptop as a stand or toss it on the couch. Doing so will shorten the life of your computer, and if you have a hard drive installed instead of a solid state drive, tossing or shaking it can dislodge that drive. As a result, the data will disappear.

  1. Incorrect battery charging… In order for the battery to “live” as long as possible, you need to discharge the laptop not to 0 percent and charge it often. If you notice that the battery is swollen, you need to urgently replace it.

  2. Failure to comply with electrical safety rules… Power surges are dangerous for a computer. It is best to buy surge protectors to prevent this (although they will not save you during high voltage surges – for example, during a lightning strike). You can also purchase an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), which will allow you to save data even in case of an unexpected power outage – due to the backup battery.

  3. Lack of antivirus on the computer… Still, it is impossible to know for sure whether there is malware on any web resource. Therefore, it is better to use an antivirus. You also need to regularly update your software, use a password manager, be able to identify phishing (the methods by which fraudsters gain access to user data), abandon pirated programs and protect your home Wi-Fi.
