If your computer is now having a problem, and you need a Computer Repair Professional to fix it, so how are you going to properly describe your computer problem to that Computer Repair Professional in order that he or she really knows what the actual problem of your computer is.

Please get some tips below:

1. Prepare yourself how to describe your computer problem before calling the computer repair person. If you do this, you will spend less time to explain what your computer problem is on the phone.

2. Tell the problem of your computer to the computer repair person as much detail as possible.

3. Speak slowly and politely to the computer repair person what your computer problem is.

4. Please make sure that you are calling from a quiet place if you are explaining what your computer problem is over the phone. A noisy place will not help you describe your problem more clearly.
