“Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We’re just collecting some error info, and we’ll restart for you.” After I restarted my laptop, my screen turned blue. What should I do? Don’t worry, we got you! Try to turn your device off and back on again. Download the latest drivers from your respective computer manufacturer's website and install them into your computer. Still doesn’t work? Try reinstalling Windows. Note: When reinstalling Windows, all Windows settings and applications will reset. However, your personal files will be kept.

#2 My printer cannot work!

First, check if there is any paper jam in the printer. If there is paper jam in the printer, open the rear cover, carefully pull the paper out and try printing again. Otherwise, try restarting your printer first. Ensure that the power cable and USB cable is plugged in completely. If the issue persists, your printer might not be connected to your network properly, or that your Wi-Fi signal is low. To improve your Wi-Fi connection speed, you should consider looking for IT professional for assistance.

#3 I cannot log in to my computer!
