Windows Tech Support

By: 1Akal


Windows may be designed to make your life easier, but it often has a non-stop list of problems. Today we’ll see few common problems and their troubleshooting steps.

• PC won’t Boot in Windows

o When your PC just won't boot into Windows at all, you'll probably want to start off with Safe Mode—use the F8 key right when the system starts up to access the menu and see if Windows will boot into Safe Mode.

• PC Crashing or Getting Blue Screening Errors

o When your PC is crashing and shows the blue screen at random intervals, then make sure that you first disable the automatic reboot after the blue screen, and then write down the error message so you can Google it later.

• PC is Running Slow

o The first thing that you should do is open up Task Manager to see what process is taking up the most CPU or memory. While you're in task manager, it's a good idea to look for other resource-wasting apps that we can kill.

o Uninstall junk software. Now that you've killed the application that's currently hogging up the CPU, it's time to start getting rid of applications that you don't need.

o Cleaning up your PC is really quite easy and usually required. One can start by running Disk Clean-up, a pre-installed utility by Microsoft.

o When your PC is running slower than normal and you've already determined that it's not an application, then you need to scan the computer with a good anti-virus.

o Cut Down Start-up Apps to Speed Up Boot Times.

o You can use Microsoft Windows Reliability and Performance Monitor to examine how programs you run affect your computer's performance, both in real time and by collecting log data for later analysis.

• Internet Not Working

o If you're having problems connecting to the internet, you should first make sure that you are really connected – you need to open command prompt and type in a ping command like ping yahoo.com to see if you're getting any response.

o If you're not getting a response from the network, you can try disabling and re-enabling your wireless connection, which solves more problems than it really should.

o If that doesn't work, use can also use the Windows network trouble-shooter by right-clicking your wireless icon.

o Windows will disable and re-enable the adapter again, and wipe the DNS caches as well.

o If problem persists, there's a good chance your internet connection is just down.

• Internet is Working Slow

o Sometimes the problem is slow response times while you're browsing - or maybe your browser is simply hanging. You can reset all your settings of web browser to fix these problems.

o Sometimes the wireless connection drops and leads to slow internet. You can change your wireless channel to optimize your signal, or try installing another wireless firmware or using an old router as a repeater to boost your signal.

o Or at last there may be a problem with the website you are trying to access.

• Slow Shutdown of Windows 7

o Reduce Timeout To Kill Service Or App

o Or by creating a Fast Shutdown Shortcut i.e. shutdown.exe -s -t 00 –f

o Do check if computer has adequate RAM to speed up the processes.

• Network Printer Issues

o Check that you're using the right printer driver. All printers require a specific matched printer driver in order to operate correctly. Make sure that your Windows 7 computer has the correct driver installed.

o Install all Windows 7 updates. Especially if you're using a network attached printer, the updates in Windows 7 can help to get a printer working.

o Check all connections to make sure that you're actually connecting to your printer. Restart the printer, and if it's on a network, check to see that Window’s firewall isn't blocking the communication with the printer.

o If you're still having trouble, look for a support forum for the printer you've purchased. It is usually on the manufacturer’s website.
