Common Causes of Computer Crashes on a Regular Basis

April 28, 2022

Computer crashes are very frustrating, especially if it’s happening every time. If left untreated, this problem can lead to file corruption, damage, and even data losses. Determining the root of the problem can prevent purchasing a new set of computers or needing a thousand of $ for repair.

Here are some of the common reasons why computer keeps crashing:

  1. Overheating 

An operating computer needs to heat up while running. In this case, too much heat can be a problem and it often leads to crashes and screen freezing. Some of the computers are built with a fan to avoid overheating but it’s easy for the dust and dirt to get trapped in it causing the fan to malfunction. If the computer has inadequate airflow, the internal hardware may fail to lead to shut down.

  1. Malware

Computer viruses and unsafe software can hurt the operating system. To solve this problem, try using anti-malware to detect any potential viruses. 

  1. Power Supply

If you’ve tried everything and yet crashing is still there, try to look for the power supply. Unexplained crashes can be a sign of a failing power supply. This usually happens after installing external hard drives that are taking so much power.
