There are many different things that could cause a problem
with your computer. No matter what's causing the issue, troubleshooting will
always be a process of trial and error—in some cases, you may need to use
several different approaches before you can find a solution; other problems may
be easy to fix. We recommend starting by using the following tips.
Write down your steps: Once you start troubleshooting, you
may want to write down each step you take. This way, you'll be able to remember
exactly what you've done and can avoid repeating the same mistakes. If you end
up asking other people for help, it will be much easier if they know exactly
what you've tried already.
Take notes about error messages: If your computer gives you
an error message, be sure to write down as much information as possible. You
may be able to use this information later to find out if other people are
having the same error.
Always check the cables: If you're having trouble with a
specific piece of computer hardware, such as your monitor or keyboard, an easy
first step is to check all related cables to make sure they're properly
Restart the computer: When all else fails, one of the best
things to try is to restart the computer. This can solve a lot of basic issues
you may experience with your computer.
