Dying Laptop – Please help me!

Dying Laptop – Please help me!

These days laptops are one of the most common computers that are used. I guess they are preferred because of their portable nature. Being able to go with it to various places is an added advantage. But as a laptop user, do you know if it is dying? Check out the following to see if it is dying:

Strange sounds:

As you use your laptop, it would be good to pay attention to small details such as sounds that may be coming from the hard drive. This could mean that there could be problems with the hardware of the laptop, especially the hard drive. These sounds can be click sounds, whirring and buzzing sounds. The hard disk contains some internal components such as an actuator arm, a read/ write head, platters, just to mention but a few. The whirring sounds could be caused as a result of some components within the hard drive touching each other. When you experience such scenarios it would be good to contact a data recovery expert to look at the problem.

Error messages:

If you experience many error messages such as the following, then it means that your laptop is dying: “Disk Failure”, “Disk needs Formatting”, ”Operating System missing” or any other unusual error that deals with the hard drive. These error messages signify that your computer is about to crash. Error messages are a clear indication of corruption of files in the hard drive. This is mainly caused by viruses which are programs that change existing files in the hard drive. So the next time you get error messages that deal with the hard disk or the Operating System, know that your computer could be crashing.

If your laptop is dying you can always get affordable data recovery services done for you.

What causes your computer to lose files?

What causes your computer to lose files?

As you use your computer, beware that you can lose your files at any time. Here are some situations and things that may cause you to lose your file:

Human error:

As a human being, you are bound to make a few mistakes here and there. One way this can occur is through accidental erasure. For example, let’s say you are working on a certain document and you accidentally hit the delete button. When a dialog box appears, you just click ‘OK’ and continue. You may have not noticed but probably you might have deleted a certain folder. It was done mistakenly and you probably did not know what was going on. Such situations happen and in this way you may end up losing your files.
Another way human beings can cause loss of files on your computer is by allowing other people to use your machine without access. They may come and delete some of your files, either deliberately or accidentally.

Viruses:

Viruses are programs written to bring about corruption of files, especially files stored in storage devices like hard disks and USB flash disks. Viruses can be gotten from the internet i.e. by accessing certain sites (especially porn sites), downloading certain free software, email attachments and also from external storage devices that are introduced to your computer . The virus will infect your computer files and thus will become corrupted. This is why in most cases when you look for certain files, they cannot be accessed. They are in a corruptible form. The worst part about computer viruses is that, like their medical counterparts, they replicate to infect many files.

This is one of the reasons why when purchasing a new computer , it is recommended to install anti-virus software to protect your computer against viruses.

Why is your computer freezing?

Why is your computer freezing?

Just like any other man made machine, computers are bound to malfunction at some point. One of the common malfunctions of the computer is freezing. Freezing (or hanging) occurs when you issue an instruction to the computer and nothing happens. In some cases, when you attempt to move the mouse it doesn’t scroll on the screen. If you have experienced this before or you are currently experiencing it, then one of the following has occurred:

RAM and Hard disk space: Lack of regular maintenance of the computer is what leads to computer freezing and crashing. If the computer is overloaded with information, then there is a high chance that it might freeze. Computer technicians have found out that the RAM should have at least 25% free memory left. This also applies to the hard disk space. If this is not so, very little work can be done as the computer would be extremely slow in processing your information. It is also necessary to perform defragmenting of the hard disk to utilize as much space as possible.

Installing new hardware: It is possible to follow the events that led to the freezing of the computer. If you happened to install new hardware and the computer began freezing then it clearly indicates that the hardware was not properly installed or it is not compatible with your computer. To solve this problem, one may uninstall the suspected hardware and reboot the PC. There is some hardware that needs drivers. It could be possible that you have to install the drivers after installing the hardware. It may or may not work but it will reduce the chances of computer screen freezes.

Installing new software: Just as in the case above, the same situation applies here. There is some software that is really large and takes quite a lot of disk space. If the PC started freezing immediately after installing new software, then it means it is the software that is slowing the system down. One may opt to uninstall it.
