Owning a computer is a valuable part of the many different jobs you do. Whether it's checking email, paying bills, surfing the web, going to school, or doing anything else, a computer is an essential tool that makes these things possible.
Knowing the basics of computer routine repair doesn't mean you have to be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your computer, but you do need to have knowledge that will enable you to do some basic repairs yourself.

Reboot or reset
Common fixes require knowing when to restart before resetting the computer. Installing new programs and other updating features will often require you to restart your computer for them to work. Modern systems usually display a message asking if you want to restart. When resetting, you may need to manually reset the settings to their defaults.
If your computer starts slowly or takes a long time to load running programs, you may be running too many applications at once. You can easily fix this problem by adjusting your startup settings so that programs you don't need don't start automatically when you turn on your computer for the first time.
Turn off properly
Although it is tempting to turn off the computer by pressing the power button and turning it off, there is only one way to turn off the computer, namely by closing all programs and exiting the shutdown menu. Failure to follow these steps could result in the need for an expensive computer repair by a professional.
