How to Fix Common Problems with PC Peripherals

Whether you are using USB peripherals or PC peripherals, obstacles will arise at some point. In some cases, peripherals fail following an update. It is never fun having a PC which is not working properly. Fortunately, many of the issues you will encounter when using a PC are pretty easy to repair or, at the very least, diagnose.

Just like a car or a home, computers require maintenance to make sure they continue running smoothly and do not break down on you at inconvenient times. However, regardless of how diligent you are in PC maintenance, there’s always the likelihood that your PC is going to be hit with a significant hardware or software problem.

1)     Less Space For Update

If you want a quick way to free up tens of gigabytes of space, we recommend the CleanMyPC application. You can also release space by manually archiving and removing large and old files and uninstalling applications, however, it’ll take some time.

2)     PC Doesn’t Turn On

This failure relates to a PC which isn’t getting any power. The chances are that the difficulty involves your computer’s power supply unit (also referred to as a PSU). Some  PSU (Power Supply Unit) power cords can be a little fickle when plugging into their individual PSU power outlet. It might seem obvious, but it is worth checking your power leads and double-checking cable connections.

3)     Slow Performance

You might start to notice slower performance in the applications you use every day. This is likely a drag stemming from your OS during the PC peripherals set up. It’s a problem easily resolved by performing some basic software clean-up. Run a fast system check from your Task Manager to ascertain which applications are using the most  CPU and RAM resources.

4)     Files Open with the Wrong App

Most of the time, we double-click a file to open it but if the file connection in Windows is broken. Often, the file won’t open with the proper app. You can fix this by clicking on the beginning menu and selecting Settings.

Click on the System tab and appearance for the category labeled “default apps” and choose the preferred app to be opened for different files.

5)     PC Fan Not Working

PC peripheral support might be needed when the fan is not working. But it is normal behaviour for the CPU fan to stop spinning when the CPU temperatures are low or you are not running any power-hungry applications. It can happen because the fan isn’t installed well on the board, or there’s a problem on the board wires. To check this, just connect the fan to the outside power source and see if it’s still working. If not, then the matter is with the fan itself.
