  1. Those are great tips. Very realistic and possible for the average person. Although everyday we seem to become more knowledgeable about computers, many of us aren’t that far ahead into being able to fix crucial computer problems ourselves but I do believe we can prevent many of them.


  2. These are all great tips, but there’s one last thing I’d like to add. Be sure to do your research before you commit to hiring someone to look at your equipment. Between Craigslist and classified ads, it’s seems half the population thinks they’re some sort of technician.

  3. An interesting read, thanks.

    I liked your point about making sure to prepare a computer for repair. Many people don’t realise that a lot of work goes into just backing up and preparing a machine, before the real problem can even be addressed.

    Doing this at home or the office before the computer is looked at by an expert can save a lot of time.
