Top Troubleshooting related questions

Identify any software causing the slowdown and exit software programs through the Task Manager in your computer. Then, check your browser and internet if there are any alerts of slow connections. Lastly, reboot your computer. If none of these work, consult with a specialist on motherboard troubleshooting to look into the PC hardware.

Restarting your PC is also called a reboot because it does just that. It clears the memory, stopping any tasks eating up your RAM. When your RAM isn't enough to keep up with your activities on the computer, it will slow down and eventually crash. Rebooting isn't a long-term solution, so consider this as a way to free up space while you get help temporarily.

The fastest way to know is by running antivirus software on your computer. Other tell-tale signs include abrupt slowness, more frequent crash alerts, missing files, and unexpected popups. This can happen if you visit a site that you don't normally frequent or connect a corrupted memory drive.

Yes, this is possible. While hardware troubleshooting may need a Tasker to check the computer physically, several steps can be done remotely. For example, a Tasker can guide you to remove all the apps that run in the background for no reason, which could drain your battery and slow down your computer.

Yes. While you can always work on your tablets and even mobile phones, they're still prone to experience glitches or lags. This is a major problem if you do most of your work on your device. Plus, it's incredibly inconvenient to leave your phone in a service center. Don't worry; Taskers can help you with this too!

Since we can't really tell what's wrong with your computer when you post a computer repair and troubleshooting job, it might be tricky for Taskers to offer you a guarantee. Take note that troubleshooting a device can be just the first step in having it fixed. There is a possibility that it's a state beyond repair. You will never know until you hire an expert to look at it.

Suggested reads about Troubleshooting

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.

Troubleshoot PC/Display Issues


Wollert VIC 3750, Australia

16th Mar 2023

I need help diagnosing/repairing display issues on my PC. I suspect I either have a faulty monitor or GPU, but I could be wrong. I have a dual-monitor setup, and on one of the monitors specifically when I restart my PC, there is no display until Windows boots up (there ISN'T signal during the BIOS stage). When I boot up my PC after it's been shut down though, there IS signal before Windows boots up and I can see the BIOS stage. It's also worth noting when my second monitor is on standby, it doesn't get signal when I boot up my PC but does get signal if I turn it off and on again. The same monitor at times also flashes different RGB colours like there is some sort of fault. The troubleshooting I have undertaken so far has been: * Swapped out DisplayPort cables * Uninstalled graphics drivers with DDU and installed them again from scratch * Reinstalled Windows 11 * Physically uninstalled the GPU and reinstalled it again * Reinstalled my Ram * Changed Link State Power Management to Off in Power Options * Tested my second monitor in a single monitor setup and the BIOS screen was visible during boot up/restart * Tested my main monitor on a different PC and the BIOS screen was visible during boot up/restart I'm scratching my head on this one. All components and peripherals for my PC are under warranty, but I need to isolate the fault at the very least before making a warranty claim (if need be). Any assistance will be much appreciated! - Due date: Flexible

Help with TV troubleshooting/TV pick-up


Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia

24th Jan 2023

Hi there, I need some help at my office in Surry Hills. There is a TV which I need some troubleshooting done on as it is flickering and clients can't connect. You will need to bring in your personal laptop with a HDMI connection (the HDMI cable is already in the TV) to see if you can connect to the TV. Minor troubleshooting like checking cables are connected and checking the network settings on the TV are correct. Hopefully it is a minor issue but if it can't be fixed I would need someone to pick up a new TV at JB hi-fi in Moore Park. I would arrange for Click and Collect for this. Then to take it back to the studio and to set-up and connect it. I also need three other TV's in the office to be double checked just to make sure they don't have any network connection issues. The rate quoted is to cover up to 2 hours any additional hours will be paid at $40 per hour extra. This task can be done anytime from now up until the end of the day tomorrow, Thursday 26th January. Please note I work remotely in QLD so am not on-site but I am available at all times on the phone. Cheers Laura - Due date: Before Friday, 27 January 2023
