Computer hardware can start to show problems during the life of the computer which if not repaired or replaced will hinder the use of your pc. We have listed some scenarios of pc problems which may require repair, replacement or configuration of your computer hardware

Computer freezing

Computer Over HeatingOne of the main causes of computer freezing or restarting is over heating. Tremendous amount of heat can be generated by your computer while in use. Majority of the heat is generated by your CPU and Graphics card and in some cases your ram. Many safe guards are put into place to deal with the issues of heat. Fans, Heatsinks and Computer cases with good airflow always help to cool down the computer.

One of the main causes of over heating is dust. Cooler air is sucked into the computer and pushed down towards heatsinks. Along side air there will always be dust which over the years builds up on heatsinks stopping cool air reaching down to cool the processor. One of the signs of an overheating computer is a CPU fan constantly spinning fast and never seems to slow. You may also find you pc starts to freeze or even shuts down without warning.

We always recommend giving your computer a good spring clean every 6 months to remove the dust from CPU Cooler and graphics cards.
