Servicing - that's for cars & motorcycles isn't it?
You service your vehicles because you know that if you don't you'll end up ruining them, parts on the machine wear out & need to be replaced. While this isn't the case with PC's(unless a component is actually failing) they do however still need to be periodically serviced, checked over & cleaned. Part of the service is to check everything is OK; your back-ups are running, as is your Anti Virus, have strange programs appeared, is there enough free space etc. Another aspect is to fix those niggling little problems that occur with time & end up driving you MAD. Then there's the physical check over ... strange noises, is the tower/are the fans & heat sinks full of crud (technical term). Unlike the car/bike service, a PC only needs a service when it 'needs a service'. PCs gradually develop little faults which over time build up & they aren't fixed you end up with a painfully slow PC. So what i say is a PC doesn't 'need a service every 6 months' or so, but you need to think every 6 months or so 'does the computer need a service' - if it has slowed down it does, if it hasn't, & there are no problems, it doesn't.
Tune ups aside, a PC usually needs to be cleaned out every 2 years or so (more often if you have indoor pets or the PC lives in a dusty environment).
The PC in this picture hadn't had a clean in about 4 years - I think you get the idea.
What else do we do?
Pretty much anything to do with computers. We can setup or test your internet connection, Test your hard drive, setup your printer order & fit replacement parts (we carry a good supply of stock in the van but can have special orders delivered next day - usually). If you need advice on software we can recommend good programs to use & set them up for you, we can give your computer a checkup &/or tune-up. If you're having any kind of computer related problem give me a call & I'll see if i can help - or refer you to someone who can if its to specialised. I even have a few customers who have me come out to set up their TVs & seem to prefer paying me to do it rather than suffer the potential loss of hair.
