Simple way of Troubleshooting Windows 10 Hardware

As you adapt to the new Windows 10 environment, your device may start experiencing problems. Here are some tips on how to troubleshoot hardware issues from the Windows 10 environment.
TIP 1
If you don’t see the mouse pointer on the screen or if the pointer doesn’t move no matter how much you move the mouse, turn off the computer, make sure the mouse is plugged in, and restart the computer. If that doesn’t work, flip the mouse over and use your fingernails to get rid of the buildup, and wipe the laser hole with a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol. If the cursor still does not move, get rid of the stupid thing. Cheap mice. Sheesh.
TIP 2
Touch is a corollary: If your tablet suddenly refuses to continue while tapping, sliding, bumping, or grinding, the most likely suspect is a dirty screen. Follow the manufacturer’s recommended method for facial cleansing. Don’t honestly assume you can use isopropyl alcohol, as it may leak around the tire.
TIP 3
If you suddenly can’t access your email or get on the web even though you could have accessed it yesterday and you haven’t changed anything at all, don’t worry. It’s a good thing that your ISP (the place your computer connects to) is having problems. Come back in a few hours. Do not change your settings.

TIP 4
If you can’t find a file that was there yesterday, it’s probably either in the Recycle Bin or dragged to a strange place. On your old desktop, click or double-click the Recycle Bin icon. If the file is there, double-click it or tap and hold, then click Restore. If your file isn’t there, click in the Cortana box next to the Start button, type anything you can remember about the file, and right-click or tap on the files.
TIP 5
If you spend money on an expensive piece of hardware — a new video card, a second hard drive, a great feedback mouse, or a different cable modem — spend a little more money and have the retailer install it. Life is too short.

TIP 6
If a stupid computer does not work properly, turn it off. Go read a book or watch a movie. Get some sleep. Come back when you’re not tied up in a knot. Few pursuits in human history are as frustrating as trying to make a rebellious computer act on its own.
