One moment your PC is fine, the next it’s down and your files with it
Computer crashes often occur suddenly and with little obvious warning. Once it happened, there is not much you can do, other than wait for the reboot or
manually force a reset. The randomness with which a crash can strike is what makes it frustrating.
Most crashes are not as random as they seem, however. There are a number of potential warning signs. Most of them are minor issues that the average user would brush off as an annoyance, but they hint at a larger problem that can grow and eventually crash your computer at the most inopportune time. Vigilance and knowledge can help find and solve problems before they turn a PC into a paperweight.
There are many possible causes for these hellish episodes, and it's important to be educated on the whys and hows of PC crashes to prevent them in the future. After all, the next crash could be your PC's last.
SIGNS OF THE END
If you experience one or more of the follwing, then you need system resuce
Whether its login passwords, document passwords or smartphone passwords, most times you have no choice but to forfeit your precious data in exchange for system access. At Creative Chili we make no such compromise.
Random File Or Program Corruption Issues
A classic sign of a slow-growing problem is random file and program corruption errors. Files that always worked suddenly don’t open, or only work on occasion. They may or may not be accompanied by an error message.
Slow, Unreliable, Or Noisy Mechanical Hard Drive
Mechanical hard drives are likely sources of problems in modern PCs. Though they’ve become more reliable over time, they still contain mechanical parts that will eventually wear out, and that makes failure a reality users must prepare for.
Occasional Boot Errors
A sure sign that something has gone wrong is an occasional error when booting your PC, usually something along the lines of “boot device not found.” This is a sign that something is wrong with your hard drive, or that your Windows installation has somehow become corrupt.
If general poor performance, from launching programs to watching YouTube video and playing games occurs then your system needs to be serviced. Graduall system slow down over a few months is normal even on new PC's, this situation can be remedied.
Spotty Or Unreliable Internet
Unusually, poor Internet performance that can’t be linked to a problem with your ISP or router is often a bad sign. It may mean that your WiFi or Ethernet adapter is encountering problems, or it might be a sign of malware robbing your bandwidth. Eventually, the problem might make Internet access impossible or, if the source is malware, your PC could suffer permanent damage.
An Unusually Loud System Fan
A computer with fans that are louder than normal may be screaming for help because its internals are too warm, a situation that can eventually lead to a crash and even hardware damage.
Software And/Or Adware Launches At Random
Software that launches without your permission is a clue that you may become a victim of malware. Often the programs that appear will be linked to advertisements, but any Trojan can allow this avenue of attack. You might also notice that certain hardware, like the webcam, may activate without your consent. Eventually, this tampering might lead to problems as your PC is slammed with unwanted programs or its files are corrupted maliciously.
