Basic Computer Maintenance
Maintaining Your Computer’s Health
If you aren’t doing your part as a computer owner, you will find that your computer will need a little computer maintenance every once in a while. Computer maintenance is important to all computer owners, even if it is just a simple check up on the operating system. However, it is also equally important to consider who will be doing the maintenance. The person who does the maintenance is as important as the computer itself.
One of the most important things that any computer owner should do is to ensure that the operating system is maintained. The operating system is the program that you use to operate your computer and it is constantly being used by the computer to communicate with other parts of the computer. Over time, this communication might become corrupted or is no longer effective. When this happens, you can face problems such as making a hard drive crash, causing the computer to freeze or causing the computer to show a blank screen.
Your computer may be running fine but you cannot see it.
Therefore, one of the first things that you need to do when a computer has a problem is to check the operating system so that you can find out what’s wrong and fix it.
You will also want to check the computer for errors. Some people put the operating system on a disk, then they do a scan and fix any errors found. This is one way to keep a computer running smoothly, but the more common way is to do a full system scan.
Before doing a system scan, you should copy all of the data onto a separate disk. If you want to know what is going on with your computer, you will need the original disk to do a scan on.
Once you have finished copying the data, put the computer into the CD/DVD-ROM drive and put the CD/DVD-ROM back in. Check for any errors on the computer. If the CD/DVD-ROM does not show any errors, it is a good sign that you are ready to do a system scan.
Before you start the scan, boot the computer using the CD/DVD-ROM that you just copied. If there are no errors found, you can now scan the operating system. Make sure that you have everything set up and ready to go before you begin the scan.
When you first boot the computer, you will find that it will ask if you want to load DLL files. The reason that you need to load DLL files is because if you do not do this, you will encounter problems like the computer not responding to your mouse, and the computer freezing up.
After you have done the system file scan, the computer will show a message that tells you that it is doing a system file scan. The program that you use to fix problems on the computer will tell you what to do next.
To fix a DLL error, you will need to locate the error in the registry and fix it. If you use a tool that fixes all errors, you won’t be able to see the DLL that causes the error, but you can fix the DLL error with another program that can fix the error.
There are two types of DLL files. The first is the xlDLL file and the second is the cbDLL file. You should first find out what type of DLL file is causing the problem so that you can fix it before you try using another type of DLL.
You will also find that there are other problems that are caused by corrupt DLL files. These include the computer running slow, windows not responding, and the computer freezing up.
