COM­PUT­ERS ARE COM­PLI­CATED de­vices, and some­times, things go wrong. When they do, the PC, Win­dows or the pro­gram you’re cur­rently run­ning can be­come un­re­spon­sive or shut down with­out warn­ing. This is known as ‘crash­ing’. Not only are PC crashes an­noy­ing and wor­ry­ing, they can also lead to you los­ing work if you haven’t saved your data be­fore the crash. One-off crashes won’t cause too much alarm, but a PC that crashes reg­u­larly means that there’s some­thing wrong with your ma­chine, and you should fix it. Luck­ily, there are trou­bleshoot­ing pro­cesses you can go through to find out what’s caus­ing the crash. Once you’ve iden­ti­fied the cause, you can fix it, and your PC should re­turn to nor­mal.

In this guide, we’ll show you the trou­bleshoot­ing steps you should take, as well as gen­eral main­te­nance tips for Win­dows and your PC to make sure it never crashes again.
