3 Most Common Technical Problems in the Office
  • Opening Intro -

    When your job requires the use of technology, it is in your best interest to be on the lookout for potential problems and have some solutions ready.


Knowing what to look for and how to fix it will keep productivity up and cut down on frustrating troubleshooting. Be aware of some common technical problems in the office and keep the work flowing smoothly when problems arise.

Wiring Troubles

There can be a wide variety of problems with wiring, and there can be a few basic solutions to cable troubles. But some of the most common technical problems in the office stem from faulty wiring—whether it is a loosened cable or detached wiring.

Some of the problems you may encounter will be a computer unable to use a printer.

This can have a few points of failure, so the first step is to make sure the wiring is firmly plugged in at all points. From the computer itself to the switch and to the printer itself.

If all is plugged in and it is still not working, then you may be dealing with a dead cable along the way.

Troubles With Wi-Fi Connectivity

Troubleshoot the problem by seeing if it is just one computer that cannot connect or if it is multiple computers having problems. If more than one computer cannot connect, then restart your modem or router.

If this does not work, then you may have a faulty Wi-Fi device. But if only one computer is having trouble connecting, then it may be a problem with the drivers.

You can solve this by going into the computer’s control panel, selecting “Network and Internet,” and then “Network and Sharing.” Click on “Manage Wireless Networks” and delete all current Wi-Fi connections. Finally, restart your computer and scan for your office’s Wi-Fi connection and reconnect to the system.

Computers Slowing Down

Over time, computers naturally become slower. This can happen for a number of reasons, some of which being aging technology, too many programs, and malware.

For the first one, there is not much to do other than upgrade your hardware to something more modern. But there are fixes for the next two that can allow you to keep your current computer.

For those who have too many programs, it is as simple as deleting those large files and programs that are no longer in use. And for malware, use credible antivirus software to scan your computer for any harmful viruses.

These viruses can run programs in the background without you realizing it, further slowing down your computer with the added stress.

These are only a few examples, but now you know what to expect if something like this were to go wrong. Everyday problems can have quick and easy solutions; do not let your office become slowed down by problems that can be easily solved in a few minutes.
