Desktop Upgrades

Upgrading your computer and its applications is a superb way to extend the life of your desktop.

This is a good solution for many home-based and small companies because desktop computers are cheaper than laptops.

Pronto Arigato can perform an upgrade evaluation for your machine, be it a desktop with an integrated display or an Apple machine with a Retina Display and advise you on the proper replacement parts, files, display, or applications to make your machine seem like brand new.

We can also help you install new memory, hard drives, and video graphic cards as well as anything else you might want to maximize your machine’s functionality.

Common Issues for Desktops

There are few common issues you may face with your Desktops, some of which you probably could handle on your own. Some of these includes:

Slow Performance:

As with most devices, your Desktop may suddenly run slower than before after a few years. It would even affect the applications you use everyday. The problem is likely to stem from your operating system. Typically, this is a result of fragmentation on your C drive (C:).This issue is not a major issue as there can be easily resolved by using basic software cleanup.

Simply run a quick system check from you Task Manager to see which of your application are using the most CPU and RAM resources.

By removing any unnecessary programs or processes running in the background, especially those you don’t use. In the unlikely event that there is a more complicated hardware issue that is affecting your device, operating systems these days now come with a pre-programmed suite of free diagnostic and troubleshooting tests that should narrow down the problem.

With that, you can either seek professional help or, if you are knowledgeable in it, fix the problem yourself.

Loud Noises:

When a sudden loud clicking or grinding noise is being emitted from your computer, it is almost with certainty that you are dealing with some kind of hardware malfunction. Of course, there is a range of possible issues when such noises could be heard, but it is highly likely that it stems from the rotary functions of your cooling fans or hard drive(s).

The first thing you should do is open your computer case and try to pin down where the sound is coming from. If the culprit is from the cooling fans, then it is probably time to change them out. Cooling fans are not as expensive as other hardware within your device and relatively easy to change out with a screwdriver.

If that is not the case, then CPU fans, power supplies, and graphic cards should be the next possible reason why there is a sound being emitted. However, these parts are slightly more expensive and for the untrained hand, slightly difficult to replace.

Constantly Freezes:

Computers are complex machines that manage multiple processes without you even noticing they are there, and your Desktop is no different. It is this complexity that may sometimes cause your computer to freeze or not respond to your actions. More often than not, a simple remedy to this is to reboot your system.

Usually, if you are experiencing constant freezes, it could also be of insufficient system memory, registry errors, corrupted files, or even spyware. By checking each one of these potential issues until the problem is rectified, you should be able to resolve this.

Running system checks by either your device’s pre-programmed diagnostic or your Antivirus programs may clear the air as to whether you don’t have sufficient memory in your system or something else entirely. As viral infections and registry errors are a possibility as well, these diagnostics would be a more thorough check and ensure they correct them too.

Internet Browsing Is Slow or Unresponsive:

If your internet is slow or unresponsive, it is possible it is the combination of software and hardware issues that might be causing the problem. The first thing to do is to check that your Wi-Fi or LAN network connection is active and strong. If that is not the problem, then the lag could result from conflicts in the IP address registration. A simple reboot to your modem or router should resolve that.

If even that does not solve it, your browser might be the issue. Over time, browsers tend to withhold a high amount of data from browsing history and cache. There is also a chance a failing browser extension will slow down the performance. Ensure you clear your internet data and cache regularly and it should keep your browser running efficiently. If that doesn’t help, either reinstall your browser or use a different one altogether to see if the same issue occurs.

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD): 

One of the scariest events that can happen to anyone at any time is the sudden greeting of the BSOD. The instant you see this, you know something is really affecting your Desktop. This STOP error is almost certainly hardware-related and unfortunately, could signal significant system failures.

However, it is not necessarily hopeless. Sometimes, a simple reboot could resolve this issue with relative ease. 

Generally, further diagnostics are necessary to discover the root of the issue. Usually, when the blue screen appears, you will see a line of white text that tends to identify the problem your computer is facing. By looking up these codes online, it can narrow down the issue and you can either solve the problem on your own or seek professional assistance to easily solve it.

Screen Display:

If you restart your Desktop and see that the resolution has changed or icons and texts are truncated, it’s usually related to your graphics card. Many times, you simply need to update your graphics drivers. If you know the brand or model of your card, you can go to the manufacturer’s website and download the latest software for the device.

If taking this step still doesn’t fix the issue, there could be larger issues with your hardware. In rare cases, you may need to replace the graphics card altogether to solve the issue. However, in most cases, the issue is software-related.

Remember that experiencing computer issues is not the end of the world. It doesn’t necessarily mean you need to spend a ton of money on system upgrades. As issues arise, take the time to better understand the cause of problems and work through possible fixes. If all else fails, there are plenty of IT support services available that can handle a more thorough analysis of your systems and offer workable solutions.
