Basics to troubleshooting PC & Windows Issues
« on: January 08, 2018, 07:46:04 AM »
For some reasons many people do not know the basics of the basics to windows "Slow" or "Glitches without error"

Basic first two things does not matter the version of windows "CMD" is your friend.

Repair 1 (Check Disk)
Hit the windows key or start/run
Type CMD, right click command prompt and run as admin
in the new screen make sure C drive or a prefix of it is selected if not type "C:" then enter
Now type "chkdsk/f" and then "yes"
Reboot
During the reboot the system will fix it's minor HDD related issues if it can.

Repair 2 SFC (Fixing windows issues)
Hit the windows key or start/run
Type CMD, right click command prompt and run as admin
in the new screen make sure C drive or a prefix of it is selected if not type "C:" then enter
Now Type "Sfc/scannow" this will take some time so you can do other issues while it runs
It should find minor and some major windows issues and fix them.

Now for a dedicated issue I run into all the time (Start button does dick all)
hit Windows key"Does nothing"
Right-click the taskbar click task manager
Click Details tab
find explorer.exe right click it and end task
Then click file run new task, then type "Explorer.exe"
Now the start button works again YAY life is grand

now if you have some quick fixes or suggestions please post them here lets get this DIY area a bit more helpful
