Mistakes that will destroy your Computer.
The following outlined below is a mistake that will destroy your computer.
Improper CPU Overclocking:
Usually, you want to slowly increase the clock speed and voltages by a small amount then stress tasting your computer for stability.
But is you go too far and just bump up the voltage too high, you could immediately fry your CPU.
If you want to overclock your processor unless you know what you are doing the best thing to do it just finding an overclocking guide for your specific CPU made by someone who has already tested it for you.
Now the interesting thing to know if you are worried about overclocking is that Intel offers insurance called The Performance Turning protection plan should incase the CPU fails due to overclocking. So I recommend the use of Intel processors for your computer.
So that is the first way out of seven that you could destroy your computer.
Another mistake that can destroy your computer is;
Poor cooling and Ventilation:
If you bought a pre-built system, it is probably okay from the manufacturer unless there’s a lot of dust accumulated in the System.
But if you have a custom-built computer, obviously you have to make sure ou components are properly cooled even if you’re not overclocking.
Not using a UPS or surge protector.
This is very self-explanatory, in order words it is very important to use a power surge protector.
Power surges could easily destroy a computer, although they might rare but why take the risk.
Surge protectors are very affordable.
Preferably, I recommend getting a UPS. This is basically a battery backup unit for a desktop computer that will keep it running for a short while if the power goes out, or becomes unstable.
Deleting System files.
One of the things you should obviously never do is to delete any system files.
Mostly, the operating system will actually make it impossible to accidentally delete anything important unless you deliberating go out of your way to do it on purpose.
Deleting a system will immediately kill the windows and require you to re-install the windows again.
But the good news there wouldn’t be any data loss and the computer will not be physically ruined.
This is something that oftentimes happens and it is not really our fault.
Which is restarting or cutting the power of the computer or any other device while it is updating.
Although Microsoft and other companies are aware of this scenario and have made it possible to roll things back, undone the changes and properly carry out the update.
But it is still advisable to be extremely careful about these because it could corrupt certain files and will require re-installation again.
Also, there are some situations like when updating the motherboard BIOS where it is absolutely dangerous to interrupt it because you could literally break the motherboard and you are screwed.
Shaking Hard drive:
This is definitely one thing you should completely avoid. This applies to Laptops so does with SSD don’t have to worry about this.
Although most modern drives do have the ability to detect vibrations and actually lock themselves down to prevent damage.
Messing around with components inside the computer while it’s running.
By doing this, you could risk things like actually shutting things outs e.g fan blade, etc.
Now after this post you should statistically be able to avoid ruining your computer.
