Syntax Error

A Syntax Error is one that occurs in the syntax sequence of a particular program that is intended to be written in a certain computer language. This can happen in a number of programs and when it does there is typically an error message that is associated with it.

 

Symptoms of a Syntax Error

Whenever a Syntax Error occurs the end result is not being able to access the particular program that you are trying to access. The telltale sign of course would be the pop-up style error message that alerts the user to the fact that such an error is occurring.

 

Cause of a Syntax Error

A Syntax Error can be caused by a variety of factors. Most commonly, Syntax Errors are caused by misspellings or bad punctuation. This is commonplace when a program tries to translate itself from one platform to another. The problem can be further intensified if the PC in question has a cluttered registry that has therefore become corrupt.

 

Fixing a Syntax Error

Syntax Errors can often be debugged and fixed automatically, but in some cases manual manipulation may be needed.

Steps

 

  1. Open the computer’s code and compile program.
  2. Locate the manual debugging tool by looking on the toolbar.
  3. Look under the Tool tab and search for Debug or Debug compiler.
  4. Click result found.
  5. Review the code for errors.
  6. Fix all errors you find.
  7. Save all changes then run the compiler.
  8. Restart your computer when the process is complete.

Check to see if the Syntax Error persists.

Parse Error

A Parse Error is an error that is in the code of one of the computer’s programs. Some computer codes are very strict in regards to how the code must be written and even one character being off can cause a Parse Error. This is typical in many blogs that have a place where code can be input.

Symptoms of a Parse Error

When a Parse Error occurs in a blog you will be notified with a large pop-up style error message. The end result will be the particular blog not operating properly and not displaying properly either.

 

Causes of a Parse Error

A Parse Error can occur due to incorrect human input on a string of code or due to a corrupt file that leads to the incorrect code. Such a file corruption would likely be caused by a registry that is too cluttered and is therefore allowing the Parse Error to take place.

 

Fixing a Parse Error

The first action that should be taken when trying to fix a parsing error is to check the code in the blog that is being effect ted manually. Make sure all lines of the code end with a semi-colon and if they don’t, correct the problem. If the problem persists after this fix then there is an error with the system somewhere and a system restore may be the perfect solution.

 

Steps

 

  1. Start your computer in Safe Mode (press F8).
  2. Click on the Start Button in Safe Mode.
  3. Click on All Programs in safe Mode.
  4. Click Accessories.
  5. Click System.
  6. Click System Restore.
  7. Follow the prompts that are displayed.

Restart your computer.

The Dreaded 100% CPU Usage Message

If there is one thing no PC user wants to see it is that their CPU usage is at 100%. When this occurs it signifies that there are major troubles ahead and it is an issue that needs to be addressed right away.

 

100% CPU Usage Symptoms

 

If your PC is letting you know that your CPU usage is at 100% you will likely know it. Because this means that all of your available memory is being used, your PC will slow dramatically. In some cases, if not attended to in a timely manner, this problem can lead to far worse consequences such as frequent freezes and/or crashes.

 

100% CPU Usage Causes

There are many factors that can attribute to your 100% CPU Usage troubles. In some cases it may be that your PC has very little, or even cheap, memory. However, it is more commonly a problem with the PC itself such as malware running in the background without you knowing or a registry that is disorganized and/or corrupted.

 

Fixing 100% CPU Usage

When you see that you are at 100% CPU Usage the first thing to do is to check your memory. If you find that the memory your PC contains is sufficient then you likely have malware issues that need to be attended to.

 

Steps:

  1. Start your PC in Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key during startup.
  2. Find the anti-malware software icon located on your tool tray or on your desktop and double-click to open it.
  3. Scan the entire PC instead of just doing a quick scan.
  4. Delete any and all malware or other adware programs that are found.

Restart your computer for changes to take place.
