Keep an Open Mind

Very often the real cause of the problem you are seeing is the last thing that you can possibly think would be it; problems simply are not always cause-and-effect. Keep in mind the famous quote of Sherlock Holmes (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle): "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth". It is very common for a symptom to be the result of a problem in a completely different part of the PC, which is why you need to make sure that you fully explore the problem before looking for a solution. In addition, bear in mind that changes to a system usually are the cause of problems that arise shortly thereafter, even if they are in unrelated areas.
