I had a problem with my touch-screen on an ASUS notebook. I first took it to my local computer place in Lismore, and because they couldn’t open the screen case, they said they couldn’t fix it. I thought there had to be someone around who could. I searched and found John at The Electronic Fix. He was able to replace the screen and also replaced a faulty battery. John explained the pros and cons of touch screens and on how to charge the battery properly. He and his wife were very friendly, courteous and passed on a lot of information about the ASUS notepad.
I would recommend John at The Electronic Fix for anything relating to PCs.

What Causes Computers Not to Start

A computer not starting up is one of the most common problems people have with their computers, one day your computer is perfectly with no issues, and the next day out of the blue it just will not start up.

You may get an error message when you try to boot your machine that tells you that the disk is a (non system disk) or you get a disk error message on the screen, this type of error is a critical error and means that the computer can’t find the operating system (Windows) to start your P.C.

A non system disk means that you have a problem with your hard drive, but not to worry because our computer technicians are experts in recovering your data in such situations. We can recover your data and replace the hard drive with a new one and re-transfer the data. Our skilled technicians can provide sound advice on the best course of action to follow to resolve this type of computer problem.

Sometimes Windows operating system will stop working altogether, and all it displays is a Blue Screen (also known as BSOD) with an error message that won’t make sense if you’re not familiar with computer errors. This type of start up problem can indicate hardware or even software failure.

When a computer that does not start, it could be anything from a virus causing an issue, to a corrupt hardware driver. Other problems could be power unit voltage, faulty RAM, even a loose plug on the back of a computer can cause startup issues

Check These When a Computer Does Not Power On

  • Is the power switched on at the back of the computer
  • If using a power board with other devices, unplug all the rest but only use the computer power supply to see what happens
  • Try a different power outlet around your home
  • Check power connection at the rear of the computer, make sure its tightly in place
  • Check other connections at the rear of the computer, make sure everything is tightly connected to rear ports

PC Making Noises

If your computer device starts emitting noises that are not normally heard, or makes unusual sounds, then investigate:

  • The case cooling fan
  • CPU fan
  • Power supply fan
  • Graphics card fan
  • Hard drives sockets and screws
  • CD / DVD drive loose

A noisy fan on a power supply means a new power unit may be needed to fix the problem. Noisy fan on the CPU will require removing of the CPU and the fan (re-apply thermal paste) and re-insert the CPU to avoid further damage. A hard drive with a ticking noise could simply mean it has a loose screw, or it could also mean the internal parts of HDD is faulty.

If a fan suddenly starts to run louder than usual, this is an indication that something is definitely wrong and needs further diagnostics. Keep in mind that temperature is an important factor for computer operations as they are there to keep computer components cool. Heat can destroy the sensitive electrical parts within a computer. We strongly advice that you get in touch with our friendly technicians who are experts at diagnosing and repairing all PC problems in North Lakes

Computer Running Slow or Window OS Freezes Up Operations

One of the most common complaint of Windows users is “My computer is running slow”. If your computer is slow or is freezing up, although this could indicate various problems, usually computer is outdated and requires an upgrade.

Other causes for slow computers can be a virus or malware infection, a faulty graphics card or a failing hard drive could also be the problem. Furthermore, hardware failures or inadequate memory (RAM), CPU or power supply may be the problem.
