PC Care Services - Computer/Laptop RepairsPC Care can diagnose and repair any make or model of PC or Laptop. We offer an on site service, saving you the inconvenience of having to transport you computer too and from a shop and then fathom out how to connect everything back up again.

The vast majority of faults we can repair on-site in your home or office, but should the fault require more in-depth investigation or specialist diagnostic hardware, we will uplift your computer to a specialist workshop, rectify the fault and then deliver the unit back to you at a time that suits you. We always keep you informed at every stage of the repair and will quote the cost of parts and labour before undertaking any work, so there will never be any nasty hidden or surprise charges once your computer is back up and running.

Our advice is always honest and unbiased, so if at any point we believe a repair would not make economical or financial sense, we will let you know and offer advice on a more practical or cost effective solution.


PC Care Services - Computer UpgradesIf your computer is running a little slow, or struggling with the latest programs, applications, games or software then maybe it is time to consider having an upgrade installed. Upgrades can greatly extend the useful operating life of a computer and are a much more cost effective solution to buying a brand new computer. PC Care can happily offer any advice on the most effective upgrade solutions from adding extra memory to installing the latest graphics card and will assist you in deciding what upgrade is right for you and your computer.



PC Care Services - Wired/Wireless NetworkingJust about every piece of home entertainment gadget is now capable of wireless internet connectivity. From Computers and Laptops, to Mobile Phones and Games Consoles, even most modern TV’s are capable to downloading and sharing content from other computers or the Internet. PC Care can expertly advise on the best hardware and implementation of Wireless Networking equipment and how to eliminate dead spots or areas of week signal, to ensure that all your wireless devices remain connected no matter where you are in your home or garden. We can also show you how to make your wireless network safe and secure from potential identity thieves or fraudsters.

In certain situations a wireless networking solution may not be practical to implement or you may prefer the cast iron reliability, super fast speed, and added security of a wired network. PC Care can design and install a wired network and all appropriate cables, hubs, switches and routers to get your devices connected and sharing the internet, files, music, pictures and videos across a cabled network within your home or office.



PC Care Services - Custom Built PC'sPC Care can design and build a PC system around you, your requirements and to suit your budget. Most “off the shelf” systems have to try and appeal to as wider demographic as possible, having some features for business, some features for family’s and some features for gamers. This approach leads to systems that are ultimately average to poor at most things. By having a PC designed and built around you, you get a system that excels at the tasks you use the PC for and doesn’t get slowed down by all the superfluous software that is installed by the big brand manufacturers trying to make one system fits all PC’s. PC Care can design and build your perfect PC ensuring you get the best performance and value for money.



PC Care Services - HealthchecksIf your PC is running a little slowly or behaving in a strange manor, or you simply want to maintain your PC’s optimal performance, then a PC Healthcheck is just what you need.

PC Care can check over your system, remove any bloatware (unwanted programs, applications, tool bars and add-ons). We will optimise your computers start up performance and Internet settings/connection. Check the general health of your system (both hardware & software) and restore some of the performance it has lost over the months/years it has been used. We will also advise you if there are any cost effective upgrades that will help your PC keep up with the performance of newer systems.

For an advanced Heathcheck we will also open up your PC or Laptop, run a visual inspection of all critical components and clean any fans, vents and filters inside the computer. If fans/vents on any computer become blocked by dust and restrict the airflow through them, the heat generated by the components inside the computer gets trapped and this can lead to overheating which can cause PC’s to crash, behave erratically or in severe cases case components to get so hot they sustain physical damage and burn out. PC Healthchecks (just like servicing a car) can keep a computer running at its best and help extend the operating life of your system.



PC Care Services - PC Set-up/InstallationWhether you are getting your first ever personal computer or replacing an existing system, PC Care can set-up and install your PC, connect and install any peripherals or additional software, install and configure your internet security software and get you connected to the internet or network and make sure you start things off on the right foot.

If you have an existing system we can also backup and transfer all your important files, documents, photos, videos, music and emails from your old system to your new one, ensuring that you don’t loose a thing.

If you have any programs or hardware running on an old system that you would like to use on your new one we can also advise about compatibility issues and solutions should the two systems have different operating systems.



PC Care Services - Data Backup, Recovery, TransferIf your computer has broken down and failed, or stopped booting, you may no longer be able to access you precious documents, photos, music or videos stored on its Hard Drive. If you choose not to have the computer repaired, or the repair would not make economical sense then don’t worry about your data as PC Care can still retrieve and backup all your important information.

We can also recover files from Hard Drives, USB Memory Sticks and Memory Cards used in digital cameras or mobile phones. This includes accidental formatting/deletion of data as well as failure or corruption of the device. If you have a Hard Drive, USB Memory Stick, or Memory Card that has stopped working or has been accidentally wiped you need to stop using it IMMEDIATELY and call PC Care. Any further attempts to read/write to the device can corrupt or damage the data further, limiting the chances of future recovery.

Once any data has been backed up or recovered from a device we can either transfer it to a working system or provide a copy of your data con CD/DVD.

PC Care Services - Insurance Quote AssessmentsIf you have had and accident and your Computer, Laptop or Tablet PC has got damaged you may be considering claiming against your Insurance. Some insurers will ask you to obtain an independent assessment of the damaged item and associated repair cost.

Obviously if the repair costs come close to or greatly out weight the cost of a replacement the insurers will ask for proof of this and this is a service that PC Care can provide.

We will inspect your device and generate a full written report detailing the damage/faults evident on the system and a complete breakdown of the repair costs including all parts and labour. We can then arrange to either send a copy of the report to yourself or deal directly with your insurer saving you time and hassle.
