What is computer hardware?

hardwareComputer hardware (hw) is any physical component of your computer system. This includes parts inside your computer's housing, like the hard drive and CPU. It also includes your screen, cables, and peripherals like your keyboard.

Hardware is loaded with software that allows it to perform different functions. These programs can significantly change how your hardware works (for example, your on-screen desktop will look different depending on the operating system installed).

Problems with hardware

Eventually, all pieces of hardware will fail with age, as the repeated heating and cooling causes wear and tear. Physical damage (e.g. dropping your computer), electrical surges and even dust can cause hardware problems too.

Faulty hardware should be fixed quickly, as it can cause more widespread problems and may even lead to data loss. LetUsFixIT customers enjoy the peace of mind offered by tech insurance.
