Free easy fixes for computer & network device problems

Posted by Jeremy Spence on

Computers and network devices can be very temperamental. Here is a list of quick fixes that could solve your problem for free.

  1. Reboot - If you have not rebooted yet, try this first. Reboot through your operating system if possible. Just unplugging a computer or powering it off with the power button can cause data loss.

  2. Power discharge - This solves a lot of boot and power on problems, if your device does not have a battery or if the battery is removable.
    1. Power off the device
    2. Unplug the device
    3. Remove the battery if applicable
    4. Hold down the power button for 20 seconds
    5. Reinsert the battery
    6. Plug the device in
    7. Power on the device.

If any of these fixes work for you, please let us know in the comments.
