Virus/Malware scan / removal & System Cleanup
If your pc is starting to slow down, then maybe a system clean up will help. This can take a while if regular Disc Cleans and Defrags haven’t been done for some time. We’ll get rid of all those temporary files and turn off startup items that are not required. Sometimes slow downs can be caused by more serious problems like trojans and malware – we’ll advise once we’ve had a look at your pc.
This service also includes virus and malware scans and removal. To do this we use at least 3 or 4 various scanners in order to make sure your system is free of viruses, scam-ware and search engine hijackers.
Upgrade HDD to SSD with Data Clone
A popular upgrade for the older laptop!!
Got a laptop that you like but it just isn’t running as well as you remember? Solid State Drives are up to 10 times faster than the traditional Hard Disk Drive (spinners). As they have no moving parts, they take knocks and bumps without a problem. They also draw less power and don’t get as warm.
I use a cloning method (note: your data needs to be less than the capacity of the new SSD) that copies your entire hard drive across to your new SSD – Operating System, Programs and Data.
Windows Password Reset
Completely forgotten your password to log into your Windows system? Maybe you’ve bought a pc from a friend or ebay but the password for the admin user wasn’t included. Don’t worry – we can reset this password for you very quickly.
Screen Replacement or Jack Plug Repair
Laptop Screen Repair: It’s quite a common problem – laptop gets dropped or trodden on and the screen breaks. We can get a price for the replacement screen and fit it for you. We’ll normally take your laptop away and return it once the repair has been done. Contact us for a quote on the screen (we’ll need the make and model number of your laptop). Touchscreens can carry an additional cost.
Jack Plug replacement can an expensive repair as it can involve taking the entire laptop apart to get to the power jack. This is a common problem but a real pain to cure. If soldering is required, this would carry an additional cost. Contact us in the first instance and we’ll try and ascertain what is required and give you a quote.
* Price excludes Screen/Jack Plug
Upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10
Still running Windows 7 on your laptop or PC? You should seriously consider updating to Microsoft’s latest Operating System, as WIndows 7 is no longer supported (since January 14th 2020).
I can upgrade to Windows 10 without additional cost (until Microsoft withdraw the offer). The price is for a full system cleanup, malware/virus scan, optimization and running the upgrade for you. The upgrade will advise if there are any issues with your system early on. The upgrade will keep your data and software and move it across to the new platform (note: you should backup your data prior to the upgrade).
PLEASE NOTE: Some systems can take hours to complete (I have known older systems take a whole day!)

Tablets & Phones
Sorry folks – I don’t do any repairs to Mobile Phones or Tablets.
I can help you navigate round and use your device, and set them up for you, but that’s about it.
What About Apple?
Simply put – I don’t support Apple products.
Apple do not support small businesses in any way – they make it increasingly impossible for your local repair guy to repair the incredibly expensive kit you’ve over-paid for.
Having said that – if you have an apple laptop or desktop and have issues with your network or email etc. (i.e. something not Apple specific) then I can help you out.
I’m happy to build a PC to the specs you require (or advise on a build that would be a great fit for your needs).
