Modern life often is centered round technology, PCs and Laptops especially. Any breakdowns can be devastating. You could lose out on income due to not being able to work until the equipment is repaired. There are some things which you could attempt in order to resolve the issue, or you might need to seek the help of an expert for tips on computer repair.

People who work at home and students often have hours of work stored on the machine. Families may have many personal photos which are at danger of being lost. Workers could miss out on money being earned and so it is best to try to solve the problem quickly. If there is life in your PC then you may just have a problem with a virus.

Viruses can be resolved by wiping the hard drive and doing a full restore. This can mean you lose everything on the PC and highlight the importance of making backups. If you have not made a recent backup disk then you should ask an expert to look at the PC for you to see if it can be saved.

Once you have finished restoring the laptop or PC then you might have an issue with the drivers. If you do not have an original disk you will have to go online to get the correct drivers to make your machine work properly.

If you have no disk you can obtain them from the website of the manufacturer of your equipment. With no access to the web you will have to use a friends PC or some another one you own.

Use a memory stick and download the drivers from the manufacturers website. You will need the make and model of your laptop or computer to make sure you get the correct ones. Once you have downloaded them plug the stick into your machine. You can then run each one, and you will notice that your computer looks and acts as it should.
