What do troubleshooting services include?

You likely spend a huge chunk of your day in front of a computer. Lags and glitches in your device can derail your plans for the day and stifle productivity. It's a good thing that finding computer troubleshooting near you is easy with Airtasker.

If you're wondering what you can have done under computer troubleshooting, here are a few examples:

Software cleanup

Most of the time, your computer slowing down is caused by too many software programs running simultaneously. You can have too many browsers open for work, research, and even video streaming. You may also have editing programs, folders, and messaging platforms open. What if none of these is the problem?


A troubleshooting specialist can help check if your software programs or app are running in the background, draining your battery and eating up your RAM. Some program installers, especially those from notable developers, may also have incompatibility with your device or other programs. 

It's also possible that a virus or malware is installed from a sketchy source. You can avoid this by ensuring that you download only from legitimate websites hosted by companies you trust.


Device inspection

Aside from checking your RAM, there could be physical manifestations of why your device is slowing down. Much like any appliance in need of repair, gadgets also overheat, indicating a faulty battery.


Another thing to look out for are signs of moisture or mold, which could happen during sudden temperature changes or when you often drink or eat in front of your computer or laptop. Improper electrical wiring could also be a possible culprit, including accidentally pulling the plug while you work or kicking the wires and causing the computer to shut down abruptly.


Repair and support

Aside from troubleshooting, computer technicians can also help you identify the best solution for you. Maybe a quick fix and new antivirus software are all you need. If your device is under warranty, they can also point you to the nearest service center. Lastly, if it's beyond repair, Taskers can help you assemble a PC that fits your lifestyle and needs. Plus, the new setup can avoid the causes that slowed down or damaged your computer in the first place.

Modem troubleshooting


Mitcham VIC, Australia

Fix my internet connection! My wife has brought home a work laptop. The problem is that as soon as she connects to our home internet (wifi or ethernet) every other device connected to the modem loses internet connection. The wifi signal is still there but there's just no internet. Chromecasts, phones, ipads, ps4, other computers, all can't connect to the internet. Unfortunately her work laptop's network settings are locked with an admin password so those can't be changed. I guess it'll have to be fixed on the modem side. Modem is a Billion 8900AX with good NBN connection. I have no idea if it's an address conflict or what. Please help! No remote access help thanks.
