How to Restore System after Crash?

As computer users, you may encounter many problems during the daily use, such as system crash. Most of the time the crash occurred with no indication, and then it caused prodigious loss. So to backup and restore your system is a best choice.

This article will tell you what may cause system crash and how to restore system if it crashed.

What may cause system crash?

1. Hardware conflict:

The number one reason why Windows crashes is hardware conflict. Each hardware device communicates to other devices through an interrupt request channel (IRQ). These are supposed to be unique for each device. If there are a lot of devices, or if they are not installed properly, two of them may end up sharing the same IRQ number. When the user tries to use both devices at the same time, a crash may happen.

2. Bad Ram:

Ram (random-access memory) problems might bring on the blue screen of death with a message saying Fatal Exception Error. A fatal error indicates a serious hardware problem. Sometimes it may mean a part is damaged and need to be replaced. Also a fatal error caused by Ram might be caused by a mismatch of chips.

3. Hard disk drives overload:

After a few weeks, the information on a hard disk drive starts to become piecemeal or fragmented. It is a good idea to defragment the hard disk regularly, to prevent the disk from a screen freeze. Hard disks will also slow down and crash if be stuffed with too much data.

4. Viruses attack:

The first sign of a virus infection is instability. Some viruses will erase the boot sector of a hard drive to cause a start failure. This is why it is a good idea to create a start-up disk in case of such situation.

5. Software conflict:

A common cause of computer crash is faulty or badly-installed software, as well as the incompatible problem among software. Most of the time, such kind of problem can be solved by uninstalling the software and then reinstalling it or remove references of the program in the System Registry by other tools.

6. Power supply problems :

Unstable voltage or abrupt power failure can cause a computer crash easily.

If it is a headache for you then an uninterrupted power supply (UPS) which provides a stable power supply might be a good choice for you. UPS will give you a few minutes to perform a normal shutdown.
