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- Outdated or incompatible software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- Outdated versions of Windows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?
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.
