1. Help! My computer won’t hold a charge!
We get this question a LOT. If your computer seems to be on the fritz and can’t hold a charge longer than a few minutes or an hour, then a few things could be happening. You could either need to replace your battery, most die after about 18-24 months, or you need a new power cord. Check to make sure that the new power cord you acquire is the EXACT same model as your computer. Putting in the wrong power cord could make your current battery go kaput. And then you’ll need to replace the power cord and the battery.
2. Help! My computer is running so slow!
There is nothing more frustrating than when your device is running slow. You have things to do and you need a computer that can work as fast you do. The cause of a slow computer could be a few different things which makes it one of the most common New Orleans computer problems we experience at Wisp. You could have a virus that is slowing down your functionality. Your RAM might be full, you might have a fragmented hard-drive, you might have too many background programs running or scanning. No matter what the cause, bring your computer to us at Wisp and we get you back to high-speed working.
3. Help! All of my files are gone!
