I’ve been repairing computers from The Forest of Dean for a few years now, even though I run a computer drop-off service, based in the centre of Ross-on-Wye. Whether you have a faulty laptop, desktop, or perhaps you have a virus or a slow computer. Don’t hesitate to get in touch and I’ll sort it for you in a few days time.
Although we do live in a technological age, computers aren’t built half as good as they should be, and they are built at such a speed that manufacturers have trimmed off time for production, sometimes by even cutting the amount of screws needed to hold the chasis together, sometimes using the same sized screw for the entire laptop. With this kind of quality in mind, plus planned obsolescence – it doesn’t surprise to see laptop warranties falling below 2 years.
We’ve repaired quite a few games consoles so if you own an Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One or Wii, and you’re having problems, get in touch with us right away.
Laptops including Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 are all repairable within a short amount of time. Whether the screen is cracked, the hinges are broke, the hard drive is damaged or even viruses or slow performance, I can have any of these issues fixed for a reasonable price and in a reasonable time. Windows operating system upgrades are also available, If interested in OS upgrades, please ask me for more information with regards to this.
Although netbooks were the hype of 2010, some people including engineers use these, as they are the ideal size for business trips and travelling to clients homes and doing off-site repairs and IT support.
Netbooks often have the same mechanics of regular laptops. Some earlier netbooks have onboard SSD (solid state drives), but most have an internal 2.5″ low profile sized hard-drive just like any other laptop of it’s generation. Most netbooks have 2 DIMM slots for adequate memory upgrades, and can run Windows 7 or Windows 8, so upgrades are applicable.
Desktop computers are still a fantastic piece of kit, even though laptop sales have far surpassed desktop computer sales. Most desktop computers have 3.5″ platter hard drives which have better and more robust technology than laptop hard drives. Desktops have a better upgrade facility, and can have upgrades with graphic cards, memory DIMM slots, hard drives, dvd drives and even PSU (power supply unit) upgrades. The Forest of Dean has unreliable power – and is well known for high power surges, damaging a lot of desktop PSU’s in the process. The reason why is because cheaper desktop computers have poor PSU’s. Buying a surge protector and upgrading your PSU to a better quality PSU will protect you from power surges.
