What are the Limitations Of Computer?

Hey guys in this blog we will discuss on what are the limitations of computer?


The computer can easily beat humans in terms of speed, accuracy, and management of memory, but stills computer has many limitations.

Here, are some limitations:

1. Computer are programmed by Humans

Computers are programmed by human beings like An Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in which the machines are programmed to think like humans and their actions. The computer only follows that instruction which is programmed by humans. If those instructions are not accurate then the working of the computer will not accurate.

This is the main limitation of an computer.

2. Emotionless

Computers are emotionless. They do not have any emotions and feelings. A computer cannot understand what humans are thinking and feeling. It’s just a machine where it works when humans give the instruction to them, and it can not compete the humans in relation but it can compete in term of speed, accuracy, etc. only.


A computer does not carry any tasks on his own and can’t take any decision on it owns like humans, Computer will only work when humans gives the instructions or programs, it only depends on it.

We all know that computers are faster than humans in terms of speed, giving accurate results and more brilliant than humans but they cannot replace humans.


Computers are not smart in any way and they cannot think themselves. The concept of AI means Artificial Intelligence shows that the computer actually thinks but still this concept work on the dependent on the sets of instruction and program which is done by human beings.


A computer can not care for itself like a human and they have no sense to do it by own. For the computer, there has only one God named “humans”. Computer is nothing without humans and they are only dependent on humans for the purpose of instruction.


Retrieval of memory means it remembered all the information which are stored in memory. Computers can retrieve data very fast but this technique is in linear. A normal human being’s mind does not follow this rule because humans almost forgot data in their mind which are not useful. A human mind can think randomly which a computer machine can not.

In simple words, the computer does those tasks which humans normally cannot do. On the other hand, computers cannot do those tasks Which humans normally can do.


The major characteristic of computer can classified in various factors:



Speed is one of the important characteristics of the computer system. Computers are much faster than humans. It solves the mathematical problem in a millisecond. As per human can do the calculation by takes some time, but in case of a computer, it can do within milliseconds or nanoseconds. The speed of the computer is very higher than humans.


In case of accurate results, the computer can do both perfectly like speed and providing accurate results. But it is related to the program which is given by humans, if the program is accurate then the computer provides the result accurately without any error.


If the program is given to the computer is accurate, it means that all the output or result is accurate and also reliable as it’s for providing consistent results. The computer performs an automation process, if the algorithm is properly set in the computer then it gives us the result accurate and reliable.


Computer are usually consistent, which means they provide us a result consistently. It performs the last number of processes without any errors. which means it provides us the same result in milliseconds.


Versatility refers to the capability of a computer to perform more than one task at the same time which is known as versatility. The computer has the ability to perform different types of work like versatility can be used to make payroll bills, invoices, etc.


Computers can perform the Trillian of calculation with the same accurate result and the same consistency. The computer doesn’t get tired when it time to do a trillion of calculations or tasks, It completes all the tasks without taking any time. The routine of a computer only is to perform tasks.


In computer, there are two types of memory Primary and Secondary memory.

The primary memory e.g. RAM already built in a memory where is used to read/write the data. Examples of primary memory are RAM, ROM, PROM, EPROM, Registers, etc.

And, the Secondary memory e.g. ROM where all the data are stored in a system permanently, It is a removable device which we can easily remove the memory.

Examples of secondary memory are Hard Disk, Floppy Disk, USB, etc.
