Tips: Troubleshooting for Laptops

Knowing how to do simple troubleshooting techniques is very useful for computer users. It can save you not only money but time as well. However, it's confusing how to deal with computer problems if the main cause cannot be determined. For instance, LCD issues can be caused by glitches in the video adapter or mainboard or a bad inverter. If you thoroughly read a laptop troubleshooting manual, you can know detailed procedure in solving this problem.

If the LCD has minor problems only, it won't be necessary to replace it yet. Major problems which require LCD replacement are dead pixels and cracks on the screen. Although laptops have different brands, most technical glitches are almost always similar due to similarity in structure and design; hence, similar troubleshooting approach is applicable to most laptops.

The first thing to do in troubleshooting laptop glitches is to identify the cause or reason. If the problem is related to power failure, then the power supply should be properly fixed. Check the power plug and connect it correctly. Also, check the LED and battery. Ensure that the power switch and main-board supply are working well. If you're experiencing troubles with an easily exhausted battery, you can try adjusting the power saving mode to save energy while using the laptop. Adjust the screen brightness so that the battery doesn't easily get drained.

For video failure, the first step is to check the power supply. Also, some problems may be due to power failure from the main-board. To check if the internal video adapter is working properly, try connecting an external monitor using a standard VGA. Check if the monitor emits light. If it doesn't, the problem may be related to internal disarray of physical connectors such as modem port detachment. However, if the external monitor lights up but shows dead spots and columns, then it implies that your laptop ahs a poor LCD assembly. There could also be problems in backlight and inverter failure.

If your laptop does not start up nor turn on, check if it's plugged correctly to an AC outlet. Ensure that there is enough power provided by the outlet. If it turns on but the screen shows nothing, you may have to check if your video card is faulty. Replacing the video card may solve the problem.

Run a full virus scan regularly to identify and remove viruses and spyware. Keep your antivirus and antispyware programs updated for optimum protection. Your computer's firewall should also be turned on.
