Top Computer Issues & Their Fixes By Techyuga Experts
Remove Viruses and Malware
There is nothing frightening if your computer is virus affected as because if your computer is infected and isn’t working properly, you don’t have to pay someone else to fix it. If you wanna check if your computer is malware affected or not, then read these blog HERE
To find an antivirus product that actually offers good protection, consult an antivirus test website and see how your antivirus of choice stacks up. There are a lot of antiviruses out there, we have few recommendations for you.
Kaspersky and Bitdefender consistently rank in the top of both the AV-Test and AV-Comparatives rankings, and we’ve used both products with good results. They aren’t free, but most of the free antivirus out there is bundling extra nonsense or trying to redirect your search engine to their “secure” solution that isn’t really secure and just shows you more ads or spies on your shopping habits.
For a really deep infection, a good repair place may dig through your autostart entries and registry by hand and manually remove malware that isn’t being caught by tools. However, this can be time-consuming – and if the computer is already so infected, there’s no guarantee all the malware will be removed. In cases like this, they’ll often just reinstall Windows. It is the easiest thing to do among all things in computer repair.
Reinstall the Operating System
Computers become laggy with time and there is a simple solution for it. When dealing with a computer that’s become bogged down by startup programs and toolbars, a simple Windows reinstall is often the fastest, easiest solution.
This can also help if you’re experiencing other problems with your computer, such as file corruption or weird errors. While it’s often possible to troubleshoot these things by replacing corrupted files and bad drivers, it’s usually faster to just reset Windows back to its factory state. For further guide please read the how-to unistall windows 10 blog HERE
Most new computers come with factory restore partitions, which you can access by pressing the correct key during the boot process (check your computer’s manual). You may also have CDs or DVDs you can restore your computer from. If you installed Windows yourself, you can use the Windows installation disc. On Windows 8, use the Refresh or Reset feature to easily reinstall Windows. Be sure to backup your important files before doing this. If you are unable to do this look for any computer repair services around you.
Remove Included Bloatware
If you have purchased a computer recently or you have done resetting your Pc will get to see a lot of useless software stuffed in it. Computer manufacturers are paid to include these programs, which slow your computer down (particularly during the startup process) and clutter your system tray.
Use a program like PC Decrapifier. It will automatically scan your computer for bloatware and automatically uninstall it.
Open the Uninstall a program control panel and manually uninstall each piece of bloatware, one-by-one. If you do this on a new computer, be sure not to uninstall any hardware drivers. Everything else should be fair game.
Reinstall Windows. Many geeks like performing a fresh install of Windows on their new computers to start from a clean state. You’ll often have to download and install hardware drivers from your computer manufacturer’s website after the reinstall. though it’s easy but you can consider a technician for handling this issue in your computer repair

Boot Into Safe Mode
Safe Mode isn’t completely outside of Windows, so it may not help you if a malware has deeply infected your system files. In Safe Mode, Windows won’t load third-party startup programs or hardware drivers. If malware is running when you boot into Windows normally, it shouldn’t automatically run when you boot into Safe Mode.
From this minimal environment, you can install an antivirus program, scan for malware, and remove it. If you already have an antivirus program installed and it’s failing to remove malware — or the malware is returning after it’s removed — you may have to boot into Safe Mode to remove the malware properly.
To enter Safe Mode on Windows 7 or earlier, restart your computer and repeatedly tap F8 at the start of the boot-up process. Select Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking in the menu that appears. Normal Safe Mode offers no Internet access so you’ll have to install an antivirus from a USB drive or other removable media, while Safe Mode with Networking offers Internet access so you can download and update an antivirus from within Safe Mode. Log into your computer, download and install the antivirus software, and run it.
On Windows 8 or later, press Windows Key + I to open the Settings charm pane. Press and hold the Shift key as you click the Restart option under the power button. Your computer will restart into a special boot options menu. Click Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Startup Settings > Restart. On the Startup Settings screen, press F4 or 4 to enter Safe Mode or press F5 or 5 to enter Safe Mode with Networking.

Remove Pop-up Scams
If you are seeing strange tech support popups and asking you to call a phone number to fix your computer. Beware, it means your computer is infected by some potentially unwanted program. Tech Support popups are caused by an ad-supported extension for Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome, which is distributed through various moneytization platforms during installation. The malicious browser extensions are typically added when you install another free software (video recording/streaming, download-managers or PDF creators) that had bundled into their installation this adware program.There are programs that will hijack your browsers, display scam tech support pop ups and fake BSOD screens, those that trick you into handing over money for the fix of your supposedly detected computer errors or malware infections. Read More about this pop-up scams and exactly how they work by visiting this blog HERE.
These malware pop-ups are extremely dangerous for your computer and should be removed immediately. Here is another blog to help you about removing pop-up scam, Read this : HOW TO REMOVE TECH SUPPORT SCAM POPUP FROM YOUR COMPUTER
Use an Antivirus Boot Disc
Antivirus companies often create boot discs you can use to scan and repair your computer. These tools can be burned to a CD or DVD or installed onto a USB drive. You can then restart your computer and boot from the removable media. A special antivirus environment will load where your computer can be scanned and repaired.
This is all happening outside of Windows — some of these discs are even based on Linux — so the malware won’t be running while this happens. This allows the antivirus to detect rootkits and other normally hidden types of malware, as well as remove malware that would normally try to defend itself.
There are few more blogs to help you stay protected from virus attacks, check them out :

- HOW TO CONFIGURE WINDOWS 10 TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY
Scan With a Linux Live CD
You can also scan your Windows PC from a Linux live CD or USB drive. For example, if you have a Ubuntu Linux installer disc or USB drive lying around, you can restart your computer with the bootable media inserted and boot into Ubuntu. Click the Try Ubuntu link and you’ll get a full Linux desktop environment you can use.
From here, you can install antivirus software like the open-source ClamAV and its graphical interface ClamTk, or install the Linux version of a commercial antivirus like AVG for Linux or BitDefender for Unices. You can then scan your Windows drive for malware and clean it up from inside Linux. This option is a bit less convenient and will require some knowledge of Linux or Googling if you’re not familiar with using Linux as a troubleshooting toolkit, so most people will prefer a dedicated antivirus boot disc instead.
Remove the Hard Drive and Connect it to Another PC
If you’re dealing with a desktop PC or another computer that allows you to easily remove the hard drive, you don’t have to leave it inside your computer. Open the computer, remove the drive, and connect it to another PC. You’ll then have access to all the files on the hard drive — assuming it wasn’t encrypted, of course.
Whatever the operating system on your other computer — Windows, Linux, or even Mac OS X — you can install antivirus software and use it to scan the secondary drive for malware. This malware can be found and removed from the other operating system, so the malware won’t be running and can’t fight back as you remove it. for further help pleae visit this blog : HOW TO SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE IN WINDOWS.

What You Need To Need To Ask
In case you have decided to repair from a shop or from a technician here is also a guide you should keep in mind while choosing the right place to go..
Qualifications and Credentials
Obviously, you are not going to expect a very talented engineer to come for your computer repair but what you should look for is a technician with certification in handling software or hardware issues, that will even work. If he is working for any computer repair service then you might go to explore his reputation by asking the shop owner.
In Techyuga, all our technical experts are affiliated with various software and hardware training programs. If you want to know what people are telling about us, please visit HERE.
Experience and References
The next question is how much experience the technician has and how good are they at what they do? The question could be framed along the lines of how long they’ve been repairing computers for a living, and also if they can provide customer references. Most technicians have references already set aside — customers that they get along with well and are more than happy to give them glowing recommendations. this is very important for you in choosing the right person to call for your computer repair.
Techyuga engineers are experienced in dealing with various computer issues, Not only in India but we provide technical support throughout the globe by remote sensing.Read our international customer testimonials HERE.
For example, a technician may have worked with Dell computers for so many years that simply from the description of the computer problem, he or she can immediately tell you that the most likely cause is a burst capacitor on the motherboard. Different PC manufacturers have quality issues through the years, and technicians with a lot of experience simply learn about those issues from having to fix so many common problems. You just have to ask if they specialize in certain computer brands. Ask if they have partnerships or good working relationships with certain vendors. Just say you’re shopping around for a computer support person you can return to regularly for computer repairs.
Techyuga’s technical team works with different brands and gadgets including computers, laptops, smartphones and we have also got an apple support team. Please read our full-service list HERE.
Ask for Rates and Demand Maximum Cost Limits
Now that you know the technician has appropriate credentials or training and experience with your make and model of computer, the next step is to talk money. This is a tough topic in the PC support field, because in all fairness to technicians, people really try to take advantage of them. Family members beg for free computer support. People pay a fixed fee for a repair, and then expect a lifetime of free tech support afterward. So yes, PC techs can be offended if lowballed. On the flip side, there are some unscrupulous PC repair folks that take advantage of the fact that many people know zero about computers. They’ll charge an hourly rate, and then claim that a 15-minute job, like a System Recovery, actually took much longer than it did. Not knowing any better, people pay it. be smart and pay what you really worth paying for computer repair.

How Data Protection is Handled
These days, backing up important data is one of the first things any technician worth their salt should do before attempting repairs. This process is a way for the technician to get your computer back to the state it was in when you last used it. This is just a safe thing to do, and it’s a smart thing to do. The process usually includes:
1. Backing up critical documents, like financial records or priceless family photos, onto a USB stick or external hard drive.
2. Creating a restore point using the tools available in the operating systems.
3. Copying profile folders, including documents, internet history and bookmarks and other personal settings onto the USB stick or hard drive.

Let’s know about it’s parts and features before going to Motherboard Repairing
It is also called the processor, the CPU works as the computer’s brain. It is responsible for fetching, decoding, and executing program instructions as well as performing mathematical and logical calculations.The processor chip is identified by the processor type and the manufacturer. This information is usually inscribed on the chip itself.If the processor chip is not on the motherboard, you can identify the processor socket as socket 1 to Socket 8, LGA 775 among others. This can help you identify the processor that fits in the socket.
Random Access Memory, or RAM, are the computer chips that temporarily store dynamic data to enhance computer performance while it is on. Here all the active programs and data are loaded so that any time the processor requires them, it doesn’t have to fetch them from the hard disk. Random access memory loses its contents once power is turned off. Though hard disks and flash memory does not require a power source to retain data. When a computer shuts down properly, all data located in RAM is returned back to permanent storage on the hard drive or flash drive. At the next boot-up, RAM begins to fill with programs automatically loaded at startup, a process called booting. Later on, the user opens other files and programs that are still loaded in the memory.
3.BIOS ( Basic Input/ Output System )
BIOS stands for Basic Input/Output System. BIOS is a “read only” memory, a low-level software that controls the system hardware and acts as an interface between the operating system and the hardware. It is more known as just drivers. BIOS is considered as the link between the computer hardware and software in a system. Motherboards include a small block of Read Only Memory (ROM) which is separate from the main system memory used for loading and running software. The system BIOS is a ROM chip on the motherboard used during the startup routine (boot process) to check out the system and prepare to run the hardware. The BIOS is stored on a ROM chip because ROM retains information even when no power is being supplied to the computer.
4. CMOS Memory –
Motherboards also include a small separate block of memory made from CMOS RAM chips which are charged by a battery (known as a CMOS battery) even when the PC’s power is off. This prevents reconfiguration when the PC is powered on.
5. Cache Memory –
Cache memory is a small block of high-speed memory (RAM) that enhances PC performance by pre-loading information from the (relatively slow) main memory and passing it to the processor on demand. Most CPUs have an internal cache memory (built into the processor). This can be supplemented by external cache memory fitted on the motherboard. This is the Level 2 or secondary cache.
6. Expansion Bus –
An expansion bus is an input/output pathway from the CPU to peripheral devices made up of a series of slots on the motherboard. Expansion boards (cards) plug into the bus. PCI is the most common expansion bus in a PC and other hardware platforms. Buses carry signals such as data, memory addresses, power and control signals from component to component.
7. Chipsets –
Chipset is a group of small circuits that coordinate the flow of data to and from a PC’s key components. These key components include the CPU itself, the main memory, the secondary cache, and any devices situated on the buses. A chipset also controls data flow to and from hard disks and other devices connected to the IDE channels.
8.CPU Clock –
The CPU clock synchronizes the operation of all parts of the PC and provides the basic timing signal for the CPU. A 200 MHz CPU receives 200 million pulses per second from the clock. A 2 GHz CPU gets two billion pulses per second. Similarly, in any communications device, a clock may be used to synchronize the data pulses between sender and receiver. A “real-time clock,” also called the “system clock,” keeps track of the time of day and makes this data available to the software. A “time-sharing clock” interrupts the CPU at regular intervals and allows the operating system to divide its time between active users and/or applications.
9. Switches and Jumpers –
Switches are small electronic switches found on the circuit board that can be turned on or off just like a normal switch. Jumper pins are small protruding pins on the motherboard. A jumper cap or bridge is used to connect or short a pair of jumper pins. When the bridge is connected to any two pins, via a shorting link, it completes the circuit and a certain configuration has been achieved.
Here are two common problems and its fixes for you. Learn this simple steps for Motherboard Repairing.
1.Blue Screen –
Follow these steps to get rid of blue screen caused by motherboard

2.Itching Fan Sound-
Follow these steps to get rid of fan sound
- Switch off and isolate the main supply
- Open the cabinet cover
- Look around and find the processor on the motherboard.
- Try to rotate the fan mounting screws in the anti-clockwise direction.
- At a certain position, the screws hold tight to the processor and any loose fitting ends.
- Put back the cabinet cover.
- Connect and switch on the computer.
