Desktop Computer Support

Desktop Computer Support

A desktop computer is a personal computer (PC) in a form intended for regular use at a single location, as opposed to a mobile laptop or portable computer. Prior to the widespread use of microprocessors, a computer that could fit on a desk was considered remarkably small.

Desktop computers come in a variety of types ranging from large vertical tower cases to small form factor models that can be tucked behind an LCD monitor.

"Desktop" can also indicate a horizontally-oriented computer case usually intended to have the display screen placed on top to save space on the desktop. Most modern desktop computers have separate screens and keyboards. Tower cases are desktop cases in the earlier sense, though not in the latter. Cases intended for home theater PC systems are usually considered to be desktop cases in both senses, regardless of orientation and placement.

Our tech experts can diagnose and troubleshoot all issues with your desktop computer. We can set-up, install and configure your desktop and customize its settings according to your needs and specifications. Our desktop support technicians can optimize your desktop and enable security settings and software applications. We can ensure that the latest drivers and software are updated on your computer.

Common Desktop Problems:

Insufficient Memory
Processor-intensive programs also demand a lot of memory. Random access memory (RAM) aides the central processing unit (CPU) by storing instructions linked to common operations. Without enough RAM, software crashes and slowdowns can occur.

Mysterious pop-up messages and random banner ads that hamper computer performance are symptoms of adware. The only purpose of adware is to violate computer screens with advertising. Adware is annoying, but is generally easy to remove.

Computers are supposed to perform processes faster and better, which makes the occasional bout of slowdown more pronounced. Video out of sync with audio, longer than normal load times and stuttering mouse movement all indicate either a fragmented hard drive or an overtaxed CPU.
Failing Power Supply
A computer that suddenly shuts off or has difficulty starting up could have a failing power supply. Without sufficient power, a computer will not operate.

Viruses are computer programs designed to debilitate a computer and then use it as a carrier to spread the virus to other computers. An infected computer is a danger to itself and every computer on its network. No computer is truly immune to viruses.

A Computer That Freezes or Locks Up
A frozen computer, one that locks up, or a PC struck with the "Blue Screen of Death" are all signs of many different things. Most often, registry conflicts, not enough RAM, spyware, file system changes, bad device drivers, missing or corrupted files are behind the problem. Many times, a simple tune-up will get a computer back to reasonable working order.
