Dealing With Computer Crashes

Have you ever had to bear the perils of a computer crash? A heavy load to carry, isn’t it?

It is understandable when someone who experiences a computer crash gets agitated and panic-stricken. You would start thinking that you are dead meat and all your important documents would be wiped out from your computer forever!!!

No worries, there is still a way out of the calamity. Remember! Every problem has its solution, and computer crashes are of no exception.

But just because it can be solved, that does not imply that you can still take this matter for granted.

Let us together explore this issue and see what should be done in order to avoid it from happening repeatedly.

Sometimes your computer hard drive could crash because of the existence of a virus or malware that can be found in the Internet, some of your files or software that you had downloaded. How would you know that?

As long as you can still see the LED light flashing but are unable to log on to the system, that would most likely be the root of the problem. Nevertheless, there is still hope that your data can be recovered.

But do not be too hopeful if it happens again! Hence, in order to ensure that it will not happen again, you should always equip your computer with software that helps protect viruses from attacking your hard drive.

Other times, your computer could crash due to a glitch in the hardware. That problem could be detected when you notice that the LED light is not even flashing at all. Be aware that this problem could also occur when the hard drive gets too hot.

In view of that, the affected hardware has to be repaired so that there is a chance that all the data stored in the hard drive could be retrieved. However, it would be very exorbitant to get it fixed.

Therefore, in order to refrain from having to fork out a huge sum of money for that, you should ensure that you do not turn your computer on for too long to avoid overheating of the hardware. As for laptops, you should purchase a cooler to be placed on the laptop base when you really need to use it for long hours.

No matter what the situation is, there are professionals who can assist you in recovering the data that you need the most. But you as the user should not be complacent about it either! Always remember to back up your data with any disk, thumb drive or external hard disk lest the worst-case scenario takes place, whereby your data could not be retrieved at all.

So everyone, always stay knowledgeable on the possible hard drive problems and solutions, and do your part to handle your computer or laptop hard drives with utmost care.

Ooooh tell me abt PC problems, u know I'm forever complaining abt my ISP la, my PC la, etc... I wish I had a live-in IT pro at my beck and call 24/7 so I don't ever have to panic when my PC breaks down! :)


Hehe...ya we know that GP! Even we also sometimes wish for that.

But we're contented for now coz one of our NAFA mates is quite proficient in all these IT stuff, so whenever our computers give us headaches, we can turn to him. Hehe! Quite a trusty friend we have there. =)

If you are using a desktop computer, another thing that can help avoid overheating is to have a nice chasis in terms of good air ventilation, install extra cooling fans. Now there's even one cool device call the hard drive fan which is being attached to the hard disk to make keep it cool.


Hello Apple!

Yeah good point. Desktops need to be cooled too! Thanks for the info. =)
