Tips sharpshooter troubleshoot General On Your Computer

Your PC does not want to act at all? Not detected hard drive, optical drives, which feels slow, the monitor does not look optimal, or router that is too often hangs? Do not panic, find the solution here!
Occasionally this may just happen. Suddenly berulah PC, and can not be resolved easily. Even if you have read the various troubleshooting guides on the manual is available. And this is also happening to you.

Does not consider the situation and conditions, a system can berulah. Can only arise after you update the driver. Or after the addition of additional devices on your system. Or going on suddenly, without warning or notice.

And this time the review will discuss the things mentioned above. Usah nervous and does not need to panic them.

Sit quietly, and just follow the discussion this time. Hopefully one of them is the answer of the problem you encountered with the PC you sweetheart.

Newest, Free Bug Not There
Not necessarily the latest technology to provide the best for users. Even a few times we see the self, the product mengusung the latest technology, at the beginning of the batch also comes with a significant problem perbagai spin.

For example, the motherboard chipset with the latest. Here are some cases that the members often felt lab PC Media. Need to be some small-scale research, to be able to run perfectly with the series of tests. Start from a search for BIOS updates, driver updates or simply one with a manual update of the product concerned.

Another example is to test the video card. The sharpness of competition with ATI Radeon and Nvidia, to create different products with the latest chipset, came to hold our lab. Finally a solution that requires software patch testing. To be able to run it.

Then, how about that happening in the real world? In the day-to-day use with your PC

Step Opening
As in chess, the first step would be determining. So also in solving problems that occur with your PC.

At this subbahasan, akan contain about the most important step in trying to solve the problem with your PC. The most important is trying to find out what causes your PC berulah. Changes in the last what is happening on the PC?

This is very important to know exactly. Remember, this is very easy for a settlement to be done. Tailored to the potential problems that occur. From here, allows to narrow the possible problems that occur with your PC.

01. PC not responding, when Power button is pressed.
The problem: you press the button to activate the power of your PC, but PC does not show tandatanda life. What happened?

Solution: If this happens on your PC, there are several possibilities that must be examined one by one gradually.

Step 1: Check all the electrical network, from the AC outlet to the PSU (power supply unit) of your PC. What have been installed perfectly. Ensure the switch from the PSU in the ON position, or if you use a UPS (uniterruptable power supply) and / or stabilizer AVR (automated voltage regulator). Make sure all in the ON position and in good working condition.

Step 2: If it is not the cause, then the next new PC. Make sure all cables (especially power cables) and the components installed correctly. Mebuka do with the casing, then hit back-nekan component cables and connectors available. Sometimes this is because the plug is not connected with the perfect. Note also ATX 12V, which can be found on most motherboards four years. Motherboard will not act, without the power portion of this connector.

Step 3: This will be making enough. Make checks device main items. The definition is a CPU and motherboard. Make sure both are still functioning well. For say, if the CPU is broken, the system will not work at all. Similarly, if the motherboard is broken. Especially for the business portion charged (MOSFET, the power on the PCB and so on). This will also cause the PC will not react at all.

02. Fan, Harddisk Sounds Putarannya, but Stay Dark Screen Monitor.
Problems: PC react. Heard the sound of round fan, and signs of life from another hard drive, optical drives, and others. However, the monitor remains dark.

Solution: Fiuhh ... at least this is better than a little problem number 1. To solve this problem, it's a sign on a given BIOS POST. Make sure the speakers casing installed properly, so you can hear the POST beep sound is a combination that is available on most motherboards. Or output in some motherboards, the buzzer is also available integrated on the motherboard.

Easier if the motherboard BIOS POST display with code form two seven segment LED, which will display the code hexagesimal. If you do not know the meaning of the code (either noise or light) or even loss of manual, again no need to panic. You can try the site Bios Central (

Saving documents, songs kesayangan MP3 format, installation of 3D games (which up to a gigabyte in size), some even collect video download DivX format, or the master digital video transfer from handycam results. Is not strange if a full hard drive quickly. Adding a hard drive also, is not
apart from some of the problems that may arise.

03. System Not Recognize New Harddisk.
The problem: a new Harddisk installed, not detected on either Windows or the BIOS though.

Solution: The mengonfigurasikan hard drive and install it correctly. Disk component that is not included in the installation process difficult. However, there are several steps that must be done already, install the hard disk while.

Step 1: Make sure disk is getting catudaya from PSU. Errors such as this could occur. Given the location of the hard drive is usually on the front of the casing. Sometimes you connect with the fan from the power branches, who does not get power supply from the PSU. This may also caused by inadequate number of power connectors from the PSU.

Step 2: Make sure that setting the master and slave hard drive exactly as desired. Or if you want to use the configuration on the cable select, make sure the configuration is on the second hard disk, your old and new.

Step 3: If you want to use the cable select configuration, see the IDE cable on the hard disk. Some of the latest cable, have to give special marks to help determine which connectors will be regarded as a master, and connectors which would be considered as a slave. If not available, the most easy way is with the following basic rules. Connector that is located diujung as master. While the connector in the middle, will be regarded as a slave.

Step 4: If all that can not solve the problem, then the answer is no alternative to the BIOS settings. In the Integrated Peripheral choice, there are usually options for the IDE controller. Here there are also options for setting hard disk SATA controller. If you experience a similar problem, when you want to add a new hard disk interface SATA-ber. Specifically for SATA hard drive and Windows, do not forget to install the driver that is usually supplied by the motherboard manufacturer. Updatenya or, depending on the chipset the motherboard uses.

04. Harddisk Detected, but no can be operated.
The problem: the BIOS detects the existence of the hard disk. But not so with Windows, and DOS.

Solution: This is not a big problem. The need to do is create a partition and then format the new hard drive. Because the new disk is not supplied preformatted in a file system that can be known Windows or DOS. There are several possibilities that can be done with the new hard drive.

Possibility 1: If you want to install a new hard disk with operating system Windows 9x, then needed a little basic knowledge about the fdisk command. For this one, we strongly recommend to use the one that accompanied this with your colleagues who are experienced.

Possibility 2: If you want to install the Windows 2000/XP or some of the latest Linux distro now, you do not have a headache again dealing with the fdisk command. They provide the option at the time of installation process. Live the steps and the options provided. At least it's easier than using the command fdisk to most people.

Possible 3: If the new hard drive will be used as an additional hard drive for data storage, this will be easier. For example, during the time you are using Windows XP operating system. With an a user who has administrator rights you can do the following.

Simply go to Disk Management. One of the way right click on My Computer, select Manage.

Note the left column. Then in the Storage, select Disk Management. From here you can view and manage your new hard drive more easily.

Note: Be careful when using the facilities available in the Disk Management. Do not choose the wrong disk. Because the data in the hard disk or partition can be lost. Similarly when using fdisk or similar function available on the operating system installation process.

05. Harddisk Install New Extra Large.
Problems: Harddisk 200 GB not detected either in the BIOS, let alone Windows. In fact, steps to the tip 03 and 04 are all run.

Solution: Along with the time and the progress of technology, the product mass is a big hard drive is available on the market. Be calculated with the price affordable. The core problem in the use of methods LBA (Logical block addressing) that is used. The problem for the above, is usually caused by over-sized hard drive 137 GB, using the 48 bit LBA method.

Therefore, the need to do is make sure that the BIOS is used, it is 48 bit LBA support. For example here is to use 48-bit LBA Test Program for Intel Application Accelerator ( Simply run the application on the simple 48lbachk.exe system.

If the BIOS was not supported, the BIOS update is required. Note the README available on the BIOS update. Make sure the update will be used, the compatibility problem can complete 48-bit LBA hard drive.

Optical Drive
The device that one may already be old mainstay for business storage. Following may be some problems that can occur.

06. Burner Software Not Working on New Optical Drive.
The problem: For example, you had to say goodbye to old CDRW drive. And replace it with a new burner drive. But you realize, that the burner software Nero mainstay, can not be used with the new drive. Why?

Solution: In the early period of triumphant CD-RW drive, most of the sales package comes with the burner software. However, it is also a lot of outstanding optical drives that are not accompanied with the burner software.

Please note, the OEM license is given to the sales package. And is devoted to products that dibundle. Nero and have protection, so that it can only be used specifically for the drive is. To continue to utilize the drive with the new burner, the most minimal cost is to the upgradenya. Nero 6 reloaded enggunakan Upgrade Downloadable Serial Number (, worth U.S. $ 39.99). This is cheaper than the full version.

07. Write speed not as fast as promised.
The problem: the specification does not promise 100% accordance with the fact that there is. However, if the time required to write two or more times the promised time, of course there is something wrong. What is it?

Solution: This may not be felt so much, even for CD-RW drive is the fastest though. However, if it is to switch to the DVD burner drive, the difference will be felt. Can-can take more than 1 hour to complete writing data on DVD media with 4.7 GB.

That need to be ascertained is, whether the optical drive or hard disk is used, is working on the Ultra DMA mode (Direct Memory Access).

Mengeceknya way, on Windows XP with attention to Device Manager. Open the IDE controller on the tree. And see in the Advanced Settings tab. Note on the Current Transfer Mode. Check on each IDE controller in which the optic disk and the drive is attached.

VGA and Display
Both are true to spoil the user's eyes. With a VGA-out, you will get the frame rate is better. While the display is better, you will get the resolution and refresh rate that is not tiring eyes. However, it does not mean they are free from problems.

08. Video Card Driver not installed with the Perfect.
The problem: It appears the driver installation process is running perfectly. However, after system restart, there is a warning error box: "Application Error cli.exe. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click OK to terminate the application. "What is it and how to address them?

Solution: Some users with video card ATI Radeon VPU chipset ever feel. Moreover, if ever update the drivers and supporting applications using the ATI Catalyst. For information, ATI Catalyst intended specifically for the Windows operating system is, created using the Microsoft. NET Framework SDK.

Operating system should be added with the installation of Microsoft. NET Framework. Which is now available for version 1.1.

This will be useful if you install the application will also be created using the Microsoft. NET Framework SDK. To overcome all the problems, which caused the emergence of pop-up window similar.

09. Avoiding Error Message When Installing the VGA Driver Update.
The problem: How should update VGA driver. Because in some cases, often the error message appears.

Solution: It is not a special command that is included in the file instaler update VGA driver, who suggested to do uninstall the old drivers from previous ter-install. However, it's good to do cleaning up your operating system from your old drivers available. Before menginstalasinya with the latest update as desired.

To the user VGA chipset with ATI Radeon, you can easily perform the uninstall old driver, along with supporting multiple applications. Because ATI has also included ATI's Catalyst Uninstaller, which is automatically included during the installation process ATI Catalyst driver.

For others, it is necessary to trick itself. Enough clean alternatives to older drivers. You can use Driver Cleaner, which is now available Driver Cleaner 3.3, or variannya Professional Edition (

10. Improving the Display Monitor.
The problem: You have selected the best monitor. Say a TFT-LCD Monitor, or "simply" CRT monitor leading brands, which often wins the hardware review. However, the resulting view is not satisfactory. What should I do?
Solution: each Sehebat any device, will not be optimal without the optimal configuration. Similarly for the monitor.

Most LCD monitors have a special button AUTO (or similar), to the configuration automatically. In accordance with the data communicated between a monitor with a video card with DDC. But sometimes not perfect. Most of the moire interference is still felt. You can use the Monitor Test, and try to mengalibrasikan minimal moire interference.

For CRT monitors, most of the problems on the level of contrast and brightness. Contrast akan set light power monitor. But if excessive akan tiring eyes. Brightness akan memperterang. However, if too high, will lose black level. And in some cases will also focus the display monitor.

DSL Internet connection that offers speeds be regarded satisfactory. Price quote paketnya variety, can be adapted to the needs. However, the problem is not apart from it also. And is not that easy to create an Internet connection is free from problems.

11. Hang the router, and needs restart.
Problems: Initially, during installation of the router, this did not happen. But lately, often the router hangs and needs to be restarted to get the Internet connection on a PC connected to the router.

Solution: Even though the best configurations, the router can still experiencing hangs. Usually this is due to too many connection requests at the same time. And during this, the only way to overcome this is to restart the router (and then off again menghidupkannya).

Step 1: If the manufacturer has provided a router firmware update, you can try to update the firmware to improve the routing process and prevent the crash on the router.

Step 2: You can do prevention. Things such as this can also be caused by viruses, spyware also attack the PC. Run antivirus and antispyware that has been ter-update, to check each PC.

Step 3: Consider an application that is installed on each client PC to the router. Some applications, especially file sharing Peer to Peer (P2P). Applications such as this can also cause this. If not configured properly, the P2P software can only open the sharring his permission, so that if the request is too much of a burden automatic akan your router.

12. Connection with Wi-Fi Sometimes Disconnected.
The problem: the network connection using Wi-Fi, are occasionally interrupted abruptly. Without a clear reason. This occasionally happens in the Centrino notebook that is equipped with Wi-Fi connection.

Solution: Usually this is because power saving mode. Centrino notebook by default enable this function to create with the intent to save battery consumption. Most easy way is to use the Intel PROSet application (if available).

Or through the properties on the WI-Fi devices ethernet, on the Network Connections. Then select Configure. Adcanced tab, there is a setting to optimize the power consumption. Ad Hoc Power transmits, with a distance coverage. Meanwhile, Power Management, will adjust to the battery condition, and time idle notebook. And will automatically reduce power consumption from the battery.

This, it is likely that the Wi-Fi connection is lost. So there are two alternatives that can be done.

Option 1: Setting the maximum position for both of these functions. Especially if you're not concerned with the remaining battery capacity. Because the available shortcut keys to directly turn off the Wi-Fi in most Centrino notebook.

Option 2: Adjust the style of your notebook. Learn the use of idle notebook. And try it out in accordance with the habit of day-to-day. Of course you do not want Wi-Fi connection you suddenly lost because time was 5 minutes idle terlewati. Only when you leave your notebook, just enough for the toilet or to make a cup of coffee warm.
