Faulty hardware components usually make themselves known within the first few seconds of turning on your PC or laptop. It can do anything from making a series of loud beeping sounds, to giving you an error message or doing nothing at all.
When you call us the first thing we will ask you is what your computer does when you press the power button. We will then use this information to go through some possible scenarios of what may have happened. If the issue is intermittent, it may be something else such as an overheating issue or a RAM problem which can generally be resolved quickly and easily.
If a part has failed, it is a good opportunity to replace it with an upgraded component, so you get the longest possible life out of your computer.
Warning Signs That You May Have A Faulty Part Include:
- You have no power at all and no lights are turning on.
- Your computer has power but nothing appears on the screen.
- Your computer makes a series of beeping noises when turned on.
- Your computer will randomly crash, reboot or hang.
- Your devices do not perform as they should (e.g. DVD’s won’t read or sound won’t play).
