Computers for Beginners/Tips&Tricks
From time to time, you will encounter some persistent errors or issues. The best way to resolve them is to try searching for that error on a search engine. More often than not, you may encounter the result on the first link (especially if you search by the error message), or otherwise have enough information to find the correct path.
While contacting the local computer expert may seem tempting, remember that they want to do work as well. As always, search before asking.
