Your home PC or laptop. For many people, in fact in this day and age, MOST people, your computer is your lifeline.
Really? A lifeline?
Well, yes. You would be amazed by the number of jobs that we do on domestic computers. Many times, we hear the owner say that it's not urgent. Then, we receive a telephone call telling us that it is needed quickly for college or school work, or an eBay item ending, or an email which is urgent, or their iPad or tablet can't print so they need the computer back as soon as possible. We need them more than we think we do. So it is important for us to fix fast and help you to keep your computer running as well as possible.
Follow our little storyboard below. Start from the first picture and work your way through to see how we can help and what we offer.
Starting on a happy note. Smileys.
There is a great saying which really does ring true these days. "You don't get anything for free" Well, you do, but there is usually a payload.
You can download amost any piece of software from the Internet. If it's free, you have to ask yourself why someone would take the time and trouble to write that software, develop it and then give it away for free. That's because it usually is either time limited and then you have to pay, or it is bundled with many other 'utilities' which you don't need or didn't ask for.
When that 'free' utility or smiley package, or file opening assistant, or 'fix my PC for free' software is installed, that's when you find out that it also installed possibly numerous other fantastic free utilities which are designed to make your PC work faster and better.
The problem is that they usually don't. They run in the background, absorbing system resources and constantly nagging you about the hundreds of registry errors you have, or that you haven't backed up yet, or that you have viruses.... so, Pay or not pay?
Pay? Pay for what?
You said it was free software.
Why am I being asked to pay for it?
Those haunting words... "You don't get anything for free" are ringing in your ears.
You do get the scan for free. But if you want to actually fix those errors... and we say 'errors' loosley.... you have to register the software. When you try to do that, you get the page where you need to enter your card details.
But you never asked for the software in the first place.
This is where we can help you.
Good day, How may I help you?
We will find, remove and undo the changes that the 'Amazing utility' performed.
Remember when you set your home page to google.co.uk? Now it's heading off to istartsearch.com or some other page?
So you set it back to Google. When you open it again, it's back to the rogue site again.
Yes, we will fix that, as well as carry out a full and very deep scan (or mutiple scans if we feel they are needed) to remove the nagging, annoying, frustrating, infuriating and totally unwelcome guests living on your hard disk drive.
There's loads more actually...
So, you can get help with your software, and many times, we can do it remotely, so you can be anywhere in the world and we can get you sorted. But what about when the problem isn't software?
With over 20 years experience, we can confidently diagnose and recommend a course of action to fix broken computers.
Simple and effective upgrades are available to you.
Laptop screen replacements, batteries and chargers too.... but only top quality ones.
If you want cheap batteries and chargers, you're on the wrong website. Why? Read on.
Dial 999 and run!
Most laptops use Lithium ion batteries.
These batteries are stable and powerful.
The cheap imported batteries often are not.
Some manufacturers put too few cells in and overcharge them. A recipe for disaster. Some cheap chargers can overcharge the battery, even if it's a genuine one.
The result? An unstable battery.
When a Lithium ion barttery becomes unstable, it becomes seriously dangerous. Once a reaction starts, sometimes it won't stop until total and catastrophic failure... or fire for short. We won't go there.
Love your laptop, love your home.
It’s an old saying but it really is true. We only supply high quality products from top brand manufacturers at sensible prices. We've noticed a number of websites now offering cheap or fake original batteries built using Chinese cells.
In a recent survey by a national newspaper, 33 of the 34 test purchases they made from an auction site were fake goods!
We've thoroughly tested their batteries and they just don't last. We've also disassembled a number of these products to find on some occasions the battery capacity doesn't match what it says on the label. A real con!
All batteries supplied by us are manufactured using brands such as Panasonic, Samsung and LG. When it comes to electronics, cheapest isn't always best!
It's a bit dusty in here.
Laptop and PC's are mini vacuum cleaners. They suck dust in and deposit it in the worst possible places.... the cooling fins of the processor cooling system.
When the processor overheats, problems happen. The lifespan of the processor an be affected as well as system crashes or extreme performance issues.
In some cases, and yes we have seen it on very many occasions, a system can overheat so much that the solder melts on the mainboard and electrical failure ensues.
When that happens, it can spell the end for that piece of equipment.
By booking your laptop or PC in for a service, we carry out a quick cooler clean to get rid of the dust. We can even carry out a full valet on the entire system.
We do a lot of different things.
We do. Yes. Lots of things. Here are some...
Upgrades, virus removal, Valeting, servicing, laptop screens, chargers, batteries, network installations, home network improvements and wireless internet extending and remote repairs.
There are a few things that we don't do.
We don't sell or repair printers.
We don't sell internet access.
But what we really don't do is undervalue you. We don't charge more than is necessary either. And that is why people come back to us again and again.
Years of research have left us with the best products. AVG Cloudcare services, Powersquared chargers and batteries.
And our own legendary service and care.
A customer recently pointed out to us that although we do offer basic data recovery, we didn't show it on our website.
He was right. So here it is.
We DO offer data recovery, but we are not set up with clean room facilities as the larger data recovery centres are.
What we do offfer is a friendly and hopeful service. If the drive spins up and can be seen by our dedicated recovery PC, we will do everything in our power to extract your data for you.
So, if you have a hard drive that has lost data, let us have a look first. It could have you hundreds of pounds and won't cost you a penny for us to have a look at it.
Data recoveryWikipedia: Data recovery is the process of salvaging and handling the data through the data from damaged, failed, corrupted, or inaccessible secondary storage media when it cannot be accessed normally. Often the data are being salvaged from storage media such as internal or external hard disk drives, solid-state drives, USB flash drive, storage tapes, CDs, DVDs, RAID, and other electronics. Recovery may be required due to physical damage to the storage device or logical damage to the file system that prevents it from being mounted by the host operating system. →
