Hello friends, I use a second hand computer, I've just installed the Adobe Suite (almost all of it) and started to use Illustrator. So far I don't know if this PC has any hardware issue inside, and my questions are: if this PC had any hardware problem (a physical issue), how could I notice this as I'm using Illustrator o Photoshop? How could this affect the softwares or the files I'm working on? I don't want my files to get messed up as I'm working or about to finish working on them. I don't know if a technician might know this specific topic
The only way that you are going to find an answer to that question is to use the computer and see what happens.
Do you get any blue or black screens? Any error messages?
There are many benchmark and hardware test applications out there, many free, that you can use if you feel the need:
You can also check the motherboard for swollen capacitors:
Make sure that you frequently back up your files on two different external forms of storage.
