Diagnose Computer Issues
It isn’t always obvious what is going wrong with your desktop computer – you may be having intermittent program crashes, blue screen errors, unexpected error messages, or it simply isn’t performing as well as it used to. So don’t ignore the signs of a desktop PC in trouble, or replace it with a new one (with all the cost and inconvenience that causes); get TarkaDigital to give it the once-over, and you could save yourself time and trouble. Our technicians will thoroughly analyse your desktop PC using the best latest diagnosis techniques and software. The analysis results will enable them to identify the source of any problems and offer appropriateadvice to put them right. The solution may be that you need malware removal services, or it could be that improvements of a more technical nature are required. Perhaps you need an internal hardware upgrade such as more memory or a replacement disk drive, or it could be a software issue such as an out of date operating system. In extreme cases, you may indeed need a new desktop PC – you can rely on the technicians to make suitable recommendations for your circumstances and ensure you get value for moneySpeed Up Your Computer
No one enjoys using a sluggish desktop computer, whether it is a business machine or something you use at home – we all want speedy responses. Unfortunately, it is a fact that all computers tend to get a bit slower over time. Files are created and saved, large amounts of data get stored away, and you may not even be aware that it’s happening. Suddenly, all those invalid registry entries, old files, bits of obsolete programs and temporary internet files take their toll, and you’ve lost the previously sparkling PC performance. You need a data clear down and spring clean, so let the TarkaDigital technicians do it for you. Our technicians will carry out a performance analysis of your computer, including research of the hard disk. After removing all the obsolete data, they can make appropriate adjustments to the various computer settings to maximise the speed of your desktop PC. For example, they may recommend the addition of more memory or even swapping out a mechanical disk drive for a more up to date and rapidly operating solid-state version of the PC that can accommodate it. When the technicians have finished tuning up your computer, they will hand it back, along with practical recommendations on keeping it up to speed in future.
Computer Security Checks
The best way to deal with malware such as spyware, trojans and worms is to prevent them from getting into your system in the first place. However, once they gain a foothold, the results can be a disaster as some enable data theft and destruction, with grave financial consequences for any business or personal user. In addition to the threat to data, malware causes slow performance and irritating error messages and crashes, so it makes perfect sense to ensure that your desktop security is both efficient and effective. TarkaDigital technicians have access to the latest security software to scan your desktop computer and clean up any malware that it finds. Once cleaned up, the technicians can recommend and install the most appropriate anti-virus programs for your set-up to keep your desktop safe while you’re online. What’s more, as part of the service, the technicians can advise on how to avoid data breaches, browse safely online, and set effective passwords. Desktop security has never been more crucial, so make sure yours is as good as it can be by consulting the experts.
Upgrade Your Computer
There are many reasons why a computer can begin running more slowly than you would like, and one of the frequently encountered reasons is either an outdated hard drive or lack of memory. When confronted with this problem, people often assume they will need to buy a new desktop PC, but that isn’t always the case. If your desktop computer can receive an upgrade to the hard drive or has space for more memory, you may be able to get improved performance without the cost and inconvenience of swapping out your old PC for a new one.
Firstly, our technicians from TarkaDigital will assess your individual data storage requirements, which will vary from user to user, and are dependent on how you use your PC. Then, having established your needs and assessed the capabilities of the PC, they will make recommendations which could include inserting extra memory or swapping out a mechanical hard drive for a faster solid-state drive. Next, the upgrade will involve carefully opening up the computer (under clean static-free conditions) and then adding or replacing the components. After installation, the technician will ensure all updates and drivers are in place and then thoroughly test the whole system before handing you back your upgraded desktop PC.Back Up Your Data
You never know when disaster will strike, and all electronic devices are prone to failure, damage, malware attacks and simple bad luck. For example, if your desktop PC were to stop working tomorrow, would you be able to put your hands on your precious data? This is where a standard, secure data backup process can be a life-saver. Of course, it can be inconvenient if you lose access to your files such as photos, music, emails etc., but data loss can be fatal for a business. Our technicians can give expert advice on setting up a regular (and usually automated) secure backup process, which will ensure that your data is readily available in the event of a disaster. If your computer has undergone a catastrophic failure, they can even offer a data retrieval service to get you up and running with minimal delays. But, of course, you can’t foresee the future, so talk to our expert technicians about backing up and storing your precious information.
