If we switch off the mains and do not shut down the computer, will it go non-functional?
Do you often just switch off the mains while working on a computer instead of first shutting it down properly? Find out through this forum discussion if this will create a problem and result in your computer crashing totally.
This thread is for those who are working on desk top computers, and after the work is over, if we forget to shut down and just switch off the mains, will that have a lasting effect on the working of the computer? Will it make the OS obsolete? Why I am posting this question is because, suddenly my computer crashed and it was not working and it needed to be formatted again. What I was told by the mechanic is that when we finish using the computer, it must be properly shut down and not just merely switch off the mains.
