Hmm, I wonder what's wrong with it.
Hmm, I wonder what’s wrong with it.

If you are a regular computer user, you might have experienced computer break. In fact, the breakdown might have caused you to lose some of your important data. At that time, you must have thought why does my PC break? How can I prevent it? How can I fix it without taking the help of the professional? If the problem is a minor one then you can fix it. If it is a major problem then it is better to take the help of any professional. But prevention is better than the cure. Hence, you should know the reasons to avoid such kind of situations.

Many things can cause the breakdown of the computer like the power cord being ripped, the problems with the hardware, and the virus. Some of the major causes are given below.

Hardware Failure

Hardware failure or conflict might be the cause of your computer break. Every hardware device has an interrupt request channel (IRQ) to communicate with other devices. These devices are unique and should match properly to avoid any conflict. For example, when a printer connects on the 1RQ 7, a disk drive IRQ 6, and the keyboard uses IRQ 1. In these cases, conflict is obvious when all of them try to dominate each other. Moreover, proper installation is also important to avoid hardware conflicts. Hardware conflict can make your computer not to run anymore. The break might be temporary, but it persists then you should take the help of a professional.

Is it a Virus?

The virus is one of the major reasons for the computer break. You should avoid opening unauthentic sites, updates, and should avoid downloading unknown files as well. You can also protect your computer from anti-virus software. You can download this software from any site. Both paid and free downloading is available. If you want to get more security then go for the paid software.

Maybe Bad RAM?

RAM (random-access memory) problem is another reason of your computer failure. During this problem, you will get a message reads Fatal Exception Error. This is the indication of a severe hardware problem. In this situation, you might need to replace the damaged part.

Is the Software Buggy?

You might also experience computer break while installing any unknown software. You can fix the issue immediately by uninstalling that software. This is a very simple process. Go to the control panel and select the software and then uninstall it. Some software is corrupt so make sure that you are not installing any unknown and corrupt software. If you have antivirus protection it will be ultimately scanned and in a case of any danger you will get the message.  I ended up taking my computer to a PC repair shop in Oakland to get it looked at.  He was able to fix it pretty handily, but I had one last check on my checklist:

Perhaps it’s Overheating

Overheating might be the cause for the computer break, but it can be resolved soon when you switch it off immediately and start it after half an hour. You can also get a bigger fan and install it on the top of the central processing units to avoid this situation. Above are some of the common causes of the computer break. With proper care and knowledge, you can avoid the occurrence of this difficulty.
