Out there, there are, unfortunately, many computer software problems that can plague computer users, including both personal computer (PC) and Mac® users. Let’s take a look at some of them:
BSOD (Blue Screen of Death)
Oh no! The infamous BSOD, it’s the end of the world! Well, try giving the computer a reboot before bewailing your fate! If that simply doesn’t work, maybe it’s time to get some professional help as this is a serious issue. (But not the end of the world!)
2 -The Computer Shut Down by Itself
Have you ever seen the amount of dust that can build up on computer cooling fans? Many good people don’t understand that their computers can get overheated and that they may need to give it a clean periodically. How would you feel under a pile of covers in a warm room?!
3 – Can’t Log In
This is another most common tech support issue and the causes range from the daft (the user forgot to turn “caps lock” off) to possibly bigger (the user’s account has been suspended because he/she was playing Bejewelled all day.)
4 – The Computer is Slow
So many people think it’s perfectly natural to have 12 or more windows open at once, and don’t understand that having so many windows going at the same time will just slow things down. In need of IT services in Perth? Use a service that you can rely on. There’s also the possibility that they may have picked up malware, so try running an anti-virus program to try and pick it up.
5 – Software Won’t Run
Another leading problem up there with the rest is when a particular program becomes corrupted in some way, often leading to the software to no longer run properly. This can probably be fixed by simply updating it.
6 – Where’s My Device?
The computer fails to recognize the USB device. The easiest first step is to try the device in another USB port and see if it responds. You may also check to see if other USB devices are recognized, or if your USB device works on another computer before resorting to more in-depth troubleshooting methods. In lovely W.

7 – The Wi-Fi Keeps Disconnecting
Dodgy wireless connections can be a poser. Is it the computer? The router? The ISP? Try turning it off and on before calling your Internet service provider. Double check that your computer is within range of your wireless router. Weak signals could mean a weak connection. You could also try letting Windows troubleshoot for you by right-clicking on the Wi-Fi icon in the taskbar and selecting Troubleshoot problems.
If the problems happen to persist, think about contacting a professional IT service company who can promptly identify the problem and remedy it. Simple as that, nobody needs IT hassles during a busy day, right?
