When an exception or error occurs to your PC it is essential to make the right fix, rather than make the issue worse with an incorrect solution. This article looks at some key sources of computer error help and some problems with these sources.
It is a easy these days when fixing computers to opt for a broad search on Google. However, if you target your search you will improve the chance of finding reliable fix from the most apt computer error help.
Start by considering if a single application or piece of hardware has caused the pop-up error (e.g. perhaps an error code is displayed). Your research should therefore start with the manufacturers website. Use their search functionality to check for FAQ entries, documentation entries, known issue listing and patch update details that reference the error.
If the makers own site is no help then consider user forums next. The larger ones can be a treasure trove of information. Just be careful with attempting any fixes/solutions that other users suggest as these may be untested or only applicable for specific configurations (of PC, OS, application versions).
For broader computer errors (e.g. blue screen exceptions) then the Microsoft support site is a great research source. Again, check for updates or suggested fixes.
Blue screens may be more difficult to resolve and may only be fixed by using registry cleaners or alternatively rolling back system files using System Restore (accessories / system tools). You could also run this as Windows boots, to start Windows using snapshot versions from previous dates of system files such as the registry (a key cause of blue screen problems).
Online computer error help has made it possible for all users to troubleshoot and resolve problems for themselves. Take the extra time to seek out reliable information in order to have the best chance of resolving computer problems.
