PC users come across various issues such as connectivity problems, PC slowdown, virus infections, etc., frequently. Troubleshooting Windows computer is not an art, and just you need to have the sufficient knowledge on the issue and its countermeasures.
Here I will explain, various tools to troubleshoot your Windows computer without the help of hardware technicians.
Update Device drivers
In my personal experience, I faced thousands of people who don’t have an idea on device drivers on any operating system. Device drivers play a crucial role as a communication bridge in between the hardware and the operating system.
Outdated or the poorly written device drivers lead to serious PC problems such as the blue screen of death. So time to time, check the hardware manufacturer’s website for the latest drivers for your hardware devices like display card, soundcard, printers, LAN card, etc., and update them by downloading the exact version intended for your model.
If you’re not sure where to search for the device drivers, “Driver Booster” is an excellent software which helps you in this regard.
While installing this software, untick other unnecessary applications which come bundled with this setup file. Otherwise, driver booster will install other unnecessary toolbars which will hijack the default search engine.
This software provides two tabs named outdated and up-to-date. The outdated tab contains a list of all the outdated device drivers exists on your computer. You can update each device driver by clicking the update button available in front of its name. On the other hand “up to date,” Tab lists all the device drivers which are in perfect condition.
Sometimes, file corruption in the Windows operating system becomes the main reason for Windows malfunction. We can resolve the issue by replacing the corrupted files. In this context “Fix Win 10” analyses the core system files, and provides us the option to fix them instantly.
Before using this, it’s better idea to create a restore point of the current working condition. This application provides another section with the name “Troubleshooters”. I hope you already know the fact that Windows has inbuilt troubleshooter modules for various issues. Troubleshooters section in the Fix Win 10 program provides easy access to those modules.
This application doesn’t provide any direct troubleshooting options. Instead, it offers various functions to enable and disable certain Windows features. You can enable or disable all the available features in Windows Operating system at one place.
Here also it is a wise idea to create a restore point before making any change, otherwise, sometimes you may end with unwanted results.
