a PC problem / PC problems


Senior Member
Which sound more natural? I want to say that my PC was very slow, not responding to clicks some times. I have one PC and not sure what caused it, so not sure if the cause is one or more.

"I had a PC problem last night." (my choice but not sure how natives say it.)
"I had PC problems last night."

Thank you!

    We would tend to say it as "I had problems with my PC last night", but you could use the singular "a problem" if it was just one specific fault that had occurred.

    if you have a single problem, then you can use use " a problem"

    But, better answer is " i had problems"
