Hello and sorry for disturbing you again with my bad english.

I think this is a little strange question but i would like to share it with you.


Is possible to create a step by step manual for discover where is the real problem of a laptop/pc?


My laptop doesn't turn on: Check the battery, check the adapter. If they are ok then check or change the "hardware part's name".


My pc is really slow.

When? In the windows booting process - Probably system problems.

When? When i run billions of BC pages - Probably Ram Usage.

When? Freezing after the reboot - Probably virus and their RAM usage - check "this link".


It will be one of the greatest think if they are divided for thematic (no boot, slow, strange screen etc) and problems level in a schematic guide like a questionary.

I know these are all case by case but it could be great to have a schematic step for finding what and where is the problem, especially for a absolute beginner like me that sometimes can't answer immeditly if the problem is a hardware part or a software one.


Sorry in advance if the idea it's not good, useless and/or doable.

Thanks again for your support and knoweledge.


Best regards

In my unprofessional opinion if such a realistic and functional 'guide, diagnostic flowchart, troubleshooting tool' existed there would not be the need for the numerous help forums that exist today. I believe that the multitude of software and hardware configurations make it impossible to have a one size fits all diagnostic guide of any substance. Add to that the necessity to keep it up to date would be a huge undertaking in and of itself. And let's not even talk about custom builds.
