Underperforming PCs Are Seriously Frustrating

Common issues many of our clients experience include:

  • PC is very slow to load or use
  • PC won’t turn on or randomly restarts
  • Windows error messages
  • Faulty hard drive errors
  • Internet and email problems
  • Windows programs won’t load normally
  • Your PC or desktop has a malware infection or a virus
  • Blue screen error messages (BSOD – Blue Screen of Death)
  • No video or sound
  • Intermittent freezing
  • You have lost important files
  • You need your login password reset, as you have forgotten your password
  • Random freezes/crashes
  • Windows software updates errors
  • No internet access or Wi-Fi drop outs

If you can relate to any of these, your PC is most likely due for a repair.

What Causes PCs to Break Down?

There are a number of factors that contribute to a PC’s poor performance, including:

  • Outdated or incompatible software
  • Faulty hard drive, memory or motherboard
  • Dust build up, which conducts electricity and can short-circuit or damage the internals of your PC
  • Unstable drivers or faulty software updates
  • Poor computer maintenance
  • Pirated software
  • Age (older than 7 years +)
  • Serious virus infection
  • Outdated versions of Windows

Luckily, we can repair the majority of these issues and get your PC back up and running.

Why Should I Hire a Professional to Fix My PC?

PC Repair Elwood

Would you fix your car, or attempt to do your own electricity rewiring? We wouldn’t. We don’t have the skills or knowledge of a mechanic or electrician, and by taking on those kinds of repairs we risk causing even more damage.

The same goes for your computer. DIY PC repairs may end in permanently deleted files and photos, a completely wiped computer, or a computer that doesn’t work at all. And that would be disastrous.

What About Free Repair Software?

Tune-up or clean-up programs can actually make your issues worse, because they don’t take into account the many important variables that make your PC’s condition unique.

To provide you with the best results possible, we perform a thorough investigation to narrow down the fault. We then consider which version of Windows you are using, the type of issue we are dealing with, whether or not you have backed up your computer, and other contributing factors.

These variables, paired with our experience, determine which solution will be the best for your situation and ongoing needs. We make sure we explain (without geek speak) what’s happening with your PC, why it’s performing below par, and the best solution alternatives.

Excellent and “Very Special” Professional Service

“From the moment I contacted Computer Cures, and spoke with Paul. I can only say, how very impressed I was, with the detail that Paul came back to me with. He arranged for Harry to come out to my home and sort out my computer issues.

Harry, was just so knowledgeable, and did do an absolutely wonderful job, with setting up my computer, to near new status, with my viruses removed, my backups are now all done, and I have plenty of space to now work on my photo collages, with shortcuts to my desktops, and I just can’t wait to get started on doing my computer projects.

Harry was also excellent in answering my many questions, which gave me a lot more confidence in going forward. So, a very big thank you to Computer Cures, and I will definitely be using their services on a consistent basis in the future.”
