Check if all the wires are plugged in properly. If so, you may be facing a power supply problem. Try draining the “flea power” or seek professional help.
- If your PC turns on and then, shuts down immediately, you may be facing electrical shorts. Check your power supply and ensure that your PC is getting adequate energy.
- If your PC is turning on but nothing is being displayed on your monitor, the problem could be with it. Check if all wires are plugged in properly, i.e. the monitor is receiving power from the power outlet and is connected correctly to the CPU. If this doesn’t help, consult a professional.
Blue screen of Death
Otherwise known as STOP error, this is one of the scariest problems that you may face. Thankfully, the solution is easier than you thought. Reboot it and see if it works. In many cases, it will work. Once your system starts working, take it to a professional at your earliest convenience to fix the issue before it crashes.

Windows fail to start
There could be many reasons behind this problem, the most common one being malware issue or damaged hard disk. Here is what you can do to fix the error:
- Press the F8 key as soon as you turn on the computer. Your PC will go into recovery mode. Once you are there, launch your PC in safe mode and click ‘troubleshoot’ and then, advanced option’, followed by ‘windows startup settings’. Restart your PC in safe mode.

- Use system restore to fix your PC. If this doesn’t help, take your PC to a professional.
Unable to install a specific application
Often, this installation problem happens due to space problems. If your hard drive doesn’t have ample space, you won’t be able to install any applications.
