Fixing an Unresponsive iPhone 5 Touch Screen

Lots of users are complaining of several issues with the iPhone 5, one of the most common of which is an unresponsive touch screen. At times, the screen would be entirely unresponsive, or would register a touch where the user didn’t even touch the display. Here are a few tips to deal with the problem.
Restart the phone – When a certain application fails to stop completely and puts the phone in a gridlock, it may be necessary to restart the entire phone by pressing the power switch until the red slide bar appears.
Reset the phone – If the phone wouldn’t respond well to a restart (which is pretty rare), resetting the phone will be important. However, unlike the normal shutdown process, resetting involves turning off the phone rapidly by pressing the power switch and the home button simultaneously until the Apple logo shows up and fades away.
Restoring with iTunes – In the absolutely far-off event that none of the aforementioned methods worked, the phone can be connected to a computer with iTunes. Upon opening iTunes, a person can select the “Restore” option from the Summary tab. If the phone isn’t detected by iTunes, forcing the device into recovery is a remaining possibility.
Call a Pro – Truth be told, a professional would be better trained in dealing with an unresponsive touch screen. Aside from eliminating the hassle, taking a faulty screen to a pro can avoid further damage to the phone as a whole.

Your Office Computer Might Be Infected!

Most computer viruses are easily detected by anti-viruses. Some highly-advanced viruses have the ability to bypass security measures and infect a computer without the user even knowing it. Are the computers in your office infected? Here are some signs that they might be:
  • Hardware Acting On Its Own: Did your CD-ROM open just now? Do you hear weird noises coming from your CPU? The virus may have taken control of your hardware.
  • Slow Performance: When your computer takes a lot of time to open a simple word document or launch a simple program, run a quick virus scan.
  • Files Disappearing: Computer viruses can also delete your files. Keep an eye on your documents and files because a virus can easily snatch it away.
  • Unknown Files Appearing: If a file suddenly appears and you don’t remember creating it, don’t doubt your memory. The virus most likely added the file.
  • Unresponsive Interface: Your computer seems like your screen is frozen and you can’t click on anything or even move the mouse cursor itself.
  • Crashing Altogether: When your computer suddenly crashes without even doing anything, this may be a strong virus that needs immediate attention.
Your business might suffer when your computers are infected. Have a computer support representative examine your computers to address these issues as soon as possible, to prevent further damage.
