Secondly, give some first aids to your PC if you are in trouble. If you face a computer error, say the blackening of your monitor, check your power cords, and plugs. They might have been loosened. A little re-fixing of these apparently trivial things can save you many anxious moments. Remember to check both ends – the power end, as well as the computer end. If you see any error messages, write it down for future references.

Thirdly, you can get rid of many PC errors by performing a very easy, yet effective step. Just reboot your system. Rebooting forces your machine to re-read all the necessary system files and puts your machine back into action.

Lastly, follow the literature. Preserve your users’ manual and troubleshooting guide (if any) that comes along with your machine. The next time you face a computer error; these handy little documents can save your dilemma. Do not be panicky and keep yourself calm and composed while you search for information.
