As for hardware problems, if your clients are gamers make sure their parts aren't bottlenecking each other and that they have enough ram and that their temperatures are fine. You can put Everest on a flash drive to check temperatures.
As for OS/Software problems not really, unless they've mucked up their system so much that you should do a clean install of their OS. If you do that, however, make sure that you explain to them clearly what you are going to do and make sure that they understand.
Have fun fixing peoples computers!
