The basic technique, "Troubleshooting 101," is to make only one single change at a time to your system. Then test to see if that change corrected the problem. You may be required to shutdown then restart your computer for the change to take effect. If that change didn't correct the problem, then undo whatever was changed, restart, and try a different change again. It can be a tedious process. You may be tempted to take a shortcut and make several changes at once. Sometimes this might work. If it does, often the extra changes that did not correct the problem will introduce new problems immediately or in the future. Not knowing which changes are which makes it very difficult to then correct the new problems!
Use the menu on the left to find a few hints on troubleshooting your system. The internet is full of information that can be sometimes very helpful and other times very confusing. Keep in mind, just because you saw it on the internet doesn't mean it's right. If you can find a website of the particular hardware or software that you are troubleshooting, it might have the most helpful information.
