What should I do if my Windows computer is experiencing display issues?

If your Windows computer is experiencing display issues, there are several steps you can take to try and identify and repair the problem.

1. Check all the cables connected to the computer and ensure they are securely connected. This includes the power cable, monitor cable, and any other cables you might have connected.

2. Ensure that your video card drivers are up to date. You can check this by going to the manufacturer’s website and downloading the most recent version of the driver for your graphics card.

3. If the above two steps do not work, you may need to reset your display settings. To do this, go to the “Start” menu, select “Settings”, then “System”, and finally “Display”. Here you can change the resolution and other display settings, such as brightness and contrast.

4. If the display issues persist, it could be a hardware issue with the display itself. To check if this is the case, try connecting the monitor to another computer. If the monitor works on the other computer, then the issue lies within the initial computer.

5. If none of the above steps work, it’s time to check your computer’s memory. Your computer should have a minimum of 4GB RAM, however if you are running applications which require more, it is recommended to upgrade to 8GB or even 16GB. To check if the issue is related to insufficient RAM, open the “Task Manager”, go to the “Performance” tab, and check the amount of memory being used. If the figures are excessively high, upgrading your RAM should help.

6. If the issue still persists, it could be a virus or malware causing the problem. To check for this, run a full system scan using anti-virus software of your choice. Additionally, you can also try a program like Malwarebytes which will detect and remove malicious software from your machine.

7. Finally, if none of the above steps work, it could be a hardware failure, possibly involving the GPU (graphics processing unit). In this instance, it would be best to consult a qualified technician to help diagnose and repair the issue.

By following the above steps, you should be able to identify and repair display issues on your Windows computer. If you are ever in doubt, consult a qualified technician as they’ll be able to better diagnose and repair any hardware or software faults you may have.
