Why You Should Try to Fix Your Own Computer Problem First

Just yesterday your computer is working perfectly then today when you try to power on your computer your computer screen welcomes you with lots of errors such as blue screen, boot failures messages, hearing error beeps from your motherboard speaker and or lots of errors messages appearing on your computer display screen when windows load. The first thing that may come to your mind is to bring the computer to your local computer repair shop just because you think that it is hard to repair this kind of computer problems and need lots of expertise to fix your computer problem by yourself. Sometimes repairing a computer problem don’t require you to be a computer wizard or a rocket scientist to fix it yourself, just following some simple instruction can solve your computer problems most of the time. Try searching the type of computer problem you encounter on this site or try searching in google, I’m sure you can find a lot of result relevant to your computer problem and a step by step instruction on how to deal and fix your computer problem.
Do It Yourself

Fixing your computer either hardware or software related problem will save you lots of money and the time getting your computer to your local computer repair shop. Saving money is probably the most obvious advantage of fixing your computer yourself despite the fact that you also gain some knowledge in repairing or fixing your computer, so the next time the same problem occurs you already know how to fix it it again by yourself. For a computer technician “like me” we always want you to bring your computer to the repair shop but if you can do it yourself then no one is prohibiting you to do it by yourself.

You don’t need lots of expensive tools to fix your computer

You might think you need lots of tools to fix your computer just like a car mechanics have, in repairing a computer a screw driver alone can do most of the job when related to hardware failure but with software problem you can always download lots of free tools on the net to do the job and by following some simple steps by step guide to accomplish the task. Sometimes hardware related problem can be solved by just reinserting a computer memory a video card or just tightening a loose cable connector.

If you think you can’t do it

If for instance you have tried your best in solving the problem and yet nothing fix it or you are too afraid to do it yourself or maybe this is your first time holding a computer mouse and have trouble using it then it might be the right time to bring your computer to your local computer repair shop. Before bringing your computer to the shop list down the problem you encounter with your computer the nature of the problem such as your Windows don’t boot, Frequent system hang, error beeps, blue screen, viruses or any other problem you encountered as this is will be ask by the technician and to speed up fixing your computer.

How to Fix Non-system Disk or Disk error

Seeing an error message that says “Non-system disk or disk error” when you power on your computer means that your computer can’t find windows in your hard drive and therefore it cannot continue to load Windows. This is very frustrating because you cannot use your computer until the problem is fixed.

Here are some simple trouble shooting tips you can follow to solve this “Non-system disk or disk error” error message. I presume you have some basic know how on some basic computer components, please check out PC Component for some basic guide on computer parts and accessories.

  1. Make sure that your computer is booting from your internal hard drive where Windows is installed. Check that your first boot device is your hard drive to do this go to CMOS setup by pressing “delete” or “F2” key when your PC is in Power-On-Self-Test (POST) status and check that your first boot device priority is set to your hard drive or HDD also check that your hard disk drive is detected by the system. If you have more than one drive connected to your computer you have to select the drive where windows is installed, usually it is installed on the primary hard drive and not the secondary hard drive but that will depend on the setup of the manufacturer when you first purchase your computer or you can just disconnect the cable on the other hard drive and let the only drive where windows is installed the only drive connected to your system or motherboard.
  2. Other possibilities is that your computer might be trying to load Windows from a removable media rather than from the hard disk inside your computer, remove any inserted or connected USB flash drives, digital cameras, memory cards also check for media that might be inserted on the floppy disk and CD/DVD drives.
  3. If instruction 1 and 2 doesn’t fix the problem and the error still persist, there is a probability that some portion of your hard drive might be corrupt specially the boot sector of your hard drive. The remedy for this is to insert your windows installation disk and performing a repair of installation of windows. In this step you have to have your Windows CD/DVD installation disk at hand and boot on your CD/DVD drive. You can skip this procedure and go to the next procedure if you like.
  4. If instruction 1 to 3 doesn’t fix the problem, then you have to open the casing of your computer and check for the cable connected to your hard drive. The error might be due to a loose connection between your motherboard and your hard drive. First of find the SATA cable inside your computer, if your hard drive is SATA drive. Check for IDE cable if you are using PATA Hard drive. If you are not familiar with Hard drives check out the Hard disk drive article on this site for more information. When you found the cable try removing it and then reseating the cable firmly, just be careful not to apply too much force that may cause something to break inside your computer, do this both on your hard disk drive and the motherboard.
  5. If instruction 1 to 4 doesn’t fix the problem then your hard drive may have failed. If your hard drive has failed you have to replace your hard drive and you have to clean install windows on your new hard drive.

How to Troubleshoot a Computer That Won’t Power On

The most horrifying problem that you can encounter in a computer is to see that your computer does not power on. I mean by does not power on is that your computer is dead, the Power and HDD LED don’t light up, you don’t hear any sound from the FAN inside your computer, you don’t hear your Hard disk drive spin and no display on your display monitor. The first thing that may come up to our mind is that there is a hardware failure and most probably the computer power supply is the faulty hardware that causes this.

Before we come to a conclusion that the power supply is the cause of the problem we have to consider other factor that might cause your computer not to turn on such as power plug or probably a short circuit inside your computer. The tips and techniques I’m going to share you is based on my experience as a computer repair technician and I’m doing this technique for more than 15 years in the field . The troubleshooting method I’ll cover here is only for power related and does not cover the error messages when loading windows.

Troubleshooting tips for a computer that does not power on.

Before you try to open your computer casing, first is to have an external visual inspection of your computer. You should first check the following before proceeding to the next step.

  1. Check that the computer power cable is plugged-in properly in to the socket of the power supply of your computer.
  2. Check that the Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) or your Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) is powered on and connected to a 110/230V wall socket.
  3. Check that the power wall socket is working and delivering the correct voltage of 110V or 220V depending on your country voltage standard.
  4. If your computer power supply have power on switch, check that the power on switch of the computer power supply is switched on.
  5. Check that the power cable going to the power supply is in good condition and doesn’t have a tear or wear, sometimes rodent do love to eat wire robber such as power cords and the wire inside the cord do break .
  6. Check that your monitor has power on it.
  7. Check that the power button on the front panel of your computer is working properly and is not stucked or defective.I have experienced before when somebody ask me for an assistance to check his computer because his computer doesn’t power on and just to find out later that the cause is just the power cord not properly inserted to the wall socket.With all the external inspection done and nothing happens then it’s now time that we open the computer casing, to do this you just have to unscrew the two screws at the back, the left side of your computer casing.

    When you have opened your computer casing, the first thing to do is to touch any metallic part on your computer casing to discharge any static from your body. The next step is to remove all of the add-on card or peripheral devices attached to your motherboard such as your Ethernet card, sound card or any other devices attached to your motherboard except the memory and the processor with the heat sink. Sometimes add-on cards when defective drain too much power from the power supply that causes the power supply to shut down or even causes short circuit that shut down the power supply. Please always bear in mind that every time you remove any add-on card or peripheral devices on the motherboard always make sure that the power cord is removed from the computer power supply to avoid any damage to the motherboard or other peripheral devices and also to yourself. Now that you have removed all peripheral devices try powering on your computer, don’t forget to reconnect the power cord to your power supply. Is your computer working now

    If YES that’s great, one of the add-ons or peripheral devices are causing the problem try inserting the peripheral one by one so you can see which add-on device is causing the problem, don’t forget to unplug the power cord when inserting any add-on card to the motherboard. Remove permanently or replace the defective add-on card. Congratulation you have fixed your computer.

    If NO, then we have to check the power supply it might be defective, check computer power supply for more info. Remove all power connector from disk drive, floppy, optical drive, atx+12 volt power connector and the 24-pin atx power connector. To test the power supply using a paper clip hold the 24-pin atx power connector and locate the green wire and a black wire, the green wire is usually located at pin 16 and the only green wire on the connector, check out 24-pin atx power connector for more info on pin configuration. See the illustration below on how to short the two pins.

    power_supply_test_loShort circuit Pin 16 and ground using a paper clip or any stranded wire as shown, the power supply fan should spin normally. If the fan didn’t spin you can say right away that the power supply is at fault and must be replaced with a good power supply, you can also connect one molex connector to the optical drive or hard disk drive to see if it power up. If the fan or the drive you connected powered up then the power supply could be good, you can also check the voltage output using voltmeter. If the power supply is in good working condition you can now return all the connector to its respective point in the motherboard where it was previously connected.

     The next step would be to look for the front panel connector a 20 pin panel connector on your motherboard as show below, with all the power connector connected to your motherboard plugin the power cable on your power supply and momentarily short circuit the two pin labeled PWR and ground as shown in the image, short circuit should not be longer than 2 seconds. By doing the short circuit technique will bypass the “power switch on” button on your computer front panel because this pin is where your front panel power on button is connected. Check your motherboard user manual to find out the location and diagram of your motherboard front panel. When you have short circuit it, the system should power up when this happen then the culprit is the power on button on your front panel. You can also do this technique before you remove any add-on card or peripheral devices as stated in the previous step, if you would like to check the power button switch first.

    Now that you have found out the cause of your computer problem all you have to do now is to replace those defective parts with a known good part.

Troubleshooting Tips and Techniques For Your PC Problems

This article is based on my years of experience as a Computer Technician. Listed below are some tips and techniques for trouble-shooting your personal computer. In these guide I assumed that you have some knowledge identifying computer component if not try browsing PC component for more information on identifying system components of your Personal Computer.

Troubleshooting tips for your pc problems

  1. Always take notes: Before trying to troubleshoot your pc, it is a good idea to take notes of all the problems you encountered such as blank screen, error beeps, or if you are in Windows try to take note off the error message displayed on the screen and what you have done to solve them. You can use this later in your troubleshooting or if you know someone that knows how to troubleshoot PC’s you may refer the error to him/her he/she might give you a good idea where to start your troubleshooting steps.
  2. Check Visual Inspection of your PC: Before beginning your troubleshooting procedures take a look at your pc, inspect what’s inside your computer. There are only 5V, 12V, and 3.3V DC voltage supplied to the components from the power supply but of course you have to unplug the power before you begin opening the computer case. Don’t be afraid to touch your pc, familiarize yourself of what’s inside your computer but before touching any component be sure to discharge your body of electrostatic discharge (ESD) by touching a metal plate on the casing of your computer. Most component inside the computer are sensitive to static discharge and can be partially damage by just touching them, but don’t worry proper handling of the component can prevent catastrophic electrostatic discharge by learning how to handle component properly. You can avoid ESD by handling circuit board such as motherboard and other add-on cards by their edges and avoiding touching IC chips and other electronic component such as transistor and resistor connecting pins the good news is most computer component today integrates electrostatic protection to protect the component from sudden Electro Static Discharge.
  3. Check for cables: Most often cables are the cause of computer problems such as loose connections. For example your computer have no power, you begin checking all of the components and found out later that an old power cable is causing the problem, for not power related problem such as your hard drive can’t be detected by the system you might have an IDE or SATA cable problem. Always start from the basic, sometimes the one you think not causing the problem is actually the culprit. Check all the cable inside your computer from IDE, SATA, floppy cable, power supply cables, usb cable connector from your motherboard depending on the problem you encounter.
  4. Try different component: When your trouble-shooting your computer all you wanted to do is to isolate the problem, you can do this by trial and error procedure for example your computer screen is blank or has no display then it may came to your mind that the video card is the defective component the best way to test this is to swap the video card with a known working video card and check if it work, if not try swapping other component such as the memory, blank screen cannot always be blamed to a video card other component such as memory, microprocessors, power supply or the cable from video card to the monitor can also be blamed. If you have other computer machine you can always try the suspected component to see if it work or not, this way you’ll know if the component is defective or not. Always change component one at a time to isolate the problem.
  5. Don’t be frustrated: If you can’t solve the problem don’t get frustrated, repairing and troubleshooting computer is fun as long as you don’t get easily frustrated and willing to learn, imagine the satisfaction and joy if you successfully solve your computer problem yourself. If you have spent too much time repairing one problem then it might be a good idea to relax, call someone who can help you, or bring it to your local computer repair shop.

Why is my Computer Beeping?

Whenever you power on your computer, the system will first look for the Basic Input Output System – Read Only Memory (BIOS-ROM) chip on your motherboard. Inside this BIOS Chip is a small program of instruction telling the computer where and how to access the different slots, ports, drives attached to your motherboard. The programming code and instructions on the BIOS will be loaded in to memory and carries out the instruction in order. The computer then takes internal and external inventory of all equipment attached to the computer and performs several self-test or Power on Self-Test (POST). During the POST process if ever an error is detected the error may be delivered through visual that is shown on your Monitor and or audible known as beep codes through the motherboard speaker.

The pattern and number of beep codes has differing meaning telling you what is wrong on your computer hardware, error codes may differ from manufacturer to manufacturer so consult your motherboard manufacturer manual for more detail.
