Helpful Computer Tips

Dirty Computer?


Sometimes a dirty computer can cause the dreaded blue screen of death. Clogged CPU or Cooling fans can cause the system to over heat this can result in blue screens or the system just shutting down. Turn off the computer open the side and gently blow out the CPU, Power Supply and other areas that need attention. Cans of air can be used never tilt the can because water from the condensed air will flow out.

Memory


Memory can go bad and will cause blue screens. If you have two memory chips try removing one and see if that solves the problem. You need to run a good memory testing program to check that ram and will need to run it over night for the best test even up to 24 hours. A great program to test memory is memtest86 go to our download section to download it.
