Acomputerfield offers a range of PC repairs for home and business computers in order to keep them working to their fullest, most efficient capacity. The following includes some of the issues that we identify and fix. Remember that we offer free consultation visits with no obligation attached. For any work performed, we maintain a strict ‘no fix, no fee’ guarantee.

CD and DVD Driver Problems

Drivers are computer software that indicates how your hardware should run on a computer operating system. If hardware such as CDs and DVDs are not playing correctly, or at all, then you are experiencing a CD/DVD driver problem.

The following include symptoms of this problem:

  • Your CD or DVD cannot be read
  • Your computer cannot ‘write’ or save information onto a blank CD or DVD
  • The CD or DVD is shown as ‘disabled’
  • An error message indicates a driver is ‘corrupt or missing’
  • An error message states that a CD or DVD ‘cannot be found’
  • An error message indicates that the drive ‘isn’t accessible via an assigned drive letter’

If you experience any of these issues, you may require CD/DVD driver repair.

Data Transfers

A data transfer occurs when you transmit information (in bits and bytes) from one device or component of a computer to another. For this reason, it is also known as ‘data transmission’. This information is communicated in a variety of formats such as text and numbers.

The data transfer rate is simply the speed at which information is being moved, and is frequently measured in megabytes per second. We can help fix data transfer problems and investigate any inadequate transfer rates that your computer is experiencing.

Hard Drive Repairs/Replacements

We offer hard drive repairs and replacements as needed. Contact us for a free consultation, and we’ll let you know what can be done on your hard drive. We also provide data recovery services.

Internet Problems

We understand the need to stay connected and can help with internet problems of all types. This includes 3G or 4G (USB) connections, cable or fibre-optic issues, and ADSL connections. With decades of experience, we can get your home or business IT connection up and running quickly and efficiently.

Memory Upgrade

You may require a memory upgrade if your memory needs change. Adequate memory will allow your computer to run efficiently and smoothly. Too little memory can cause it to become sluggish or unresponsive.

The follow is a list of symptoms that may indicate you require a memory upgrade:

  • A message states that you are ‘out of memory’ or ‘low on memory’
  • Your computer is experiencing slow response and load times
  • Navigating different computer operations slow the computer dramatically
  • Web pages take a long time to display all of the information on them, sometimes showing blank spaces where data should be
  • Your computer ‘freezes’ (will not operate) temporarily

If needed, we can provide simple upgrades, which will get your computer back to peak performance.

Power Button/ Straight Case Replacement

Power buttons and straight cases can wear out.  You can usually tell if your computer’s reset switch is able to start the PC, but the power button doesn’t.  We offer a free consultation and, if necessary, provide power button and straight case replacement.

Power Supply Replacement

At some point, you may need to replace your power supply.  This is especially true of store bought pcs that are sold with a generic power supply that isn’t suitable for high-end applications.  Stability issues can occur if your power supply is inadequate.  This can happen when you make upgrades to your PC.  We can help by selecting a new power supply that meets your requirements, and making the replacement.

USB Repair

In the acronym USB (Universal Serial Bus), the word ‘universal’ refers to the variety of devices it can connect, such as scanners, printers, gaming systems, digital cameras, mice, keyboards, and USB flash drives. The word ‘serial’ refers to the fact that one bit of data is transferring at a time. The word ‘bus’ is an abbreviation for ‘computer bus’, in which there is the transfer of data, signals or power between parts of a computer.

There are typically 2-6 USB ports on your computer, in which a wire called a USB connector can connect hardware (such as a printer). If your USB breaks down and requires repair, we can help.  When needed, we also repair and recover data from USB memory sticks, also referred to as ‘flash drives’ or ‘jump drives’.

Virus and Spyware Removal

We have a variety of sophisticated solutions and an excellent recovery rate for removing viruses and spyware from your PC. Without professional help, attempts to remove spyware can result in the malware replicating itself.  Let us take a look at your virus and spyware issues and let you know how we can help.
