An unfortunate reality of owning a personal computer is that, eventually, something will go wrong. Whether it's a broken component or a malicious data-munching virus, something is bound to happen to your computer--no matter how hard you try to protect it. Even worse, diagnosing and repairing computer problems can be a difficult and expensive task.

Getting Your Computer Running Again--Or Not?

As the resident computer expert in my family (and amongst my friends), I often find myself bombarded with computer-related questions. Unless it's a simple problem that I can diagnose quickly, I've learned that the best advice is to have the computer looked at by a professional. Another option that I always suggest is simply buying a new computer.

There are a lot of things that can go wrong with a computer, and in many cases bringing it back to life takes nothing more than wiping the hard drive clean and restoring the system software. If you have a hardware problem, however, it's a good idea to really think about your options. In many cases paying to have your computer repaired might cost the same as buying a brand new system.

One great thing about computer repair specialists is that they've probably seen your problem before. This allows them to fix the problem as quickly and inexpensively as possible. If you get an estimate in the hundreds of dollars, however, you might want to think about simply buying a new computer. You'll be able to get a better machine, and you'll have the comfort of knowing it's under warranty for at least a year.
