Why do computers break down?
Constant voltage drops
A network filter for a computer If you experience frequent voltage drops in your home, this can greatly shorten the life of your equipment. Especially it concerns computers in which a cheap power supply unit is installed. Typically, power supplies are protected from voltage surges, but this is most often related to quality products. It’s no secret that expensive equipment will not be installed in cheap equipment, and the power supply is not an exception.
(How to fix your power supply or repair it in Cincinnati, you can find on our website).
Regardless of the power supply, I recommend that you have a good mains filter (as you see in the picture above), in order to exclude the breakdown of the components from power surges. Ideally, you need to buy an uninterrupted unit — a thing that will protect you not only from voltage drops, but will also allow about half an hour to work the computer when the power is cut off.
During a thunderstorm it is dangerous to work not only with a computer, but also with any other equipment. The computer can either completely fail, or break in part. Of course, computers break down because of a thunderstorm extremely rarely, but still each time it is recommended to turn off the computer and the Internet at this time.
«Curved hands» of the collector
Replacing old components is a common thing when updating a computer. If you decide to change your old graphics card, it’s important to do it right: by inserting it into the desired slot and not damaging it. Of course, for pros it’s just a matter of spitting, but if you get a «master» with «crooked hands,» who has either time to spare or knowledge, then it can do a good job of harm.
As statistics are shown, breakages from the «curve hands» of the assembler are quite often met!
A lot of new hardware comes out monthly, and the one that costs on our computers slowly becomes obsolete and what’s most sad is wear. Components begin to buggy and work slower, and eventually fail. With this it remains only to put up with it because you can not do anything (repair? But it’s worth it?).
Mechanical impact on the computer It is worth mentioning here about bumps, falls and other impacts. Some inaccurate users are guilty of this. Seldom stationary computers fall, but laptops «fly» more often! But this can lead to disconnection of the cables, splitting of the screen, failure of the components and so on!
