Where charges are concerned, you won't have to worry about runaway costs.

You will be informed of the total cost before any work is done.

Computer repairs start at £25 for a general service (cooling check, clean out, virus/spyware/malware check, system stability check etc) to a full setup which includes double backup of your files, checking and formatting drives, re-installation of Windows and replacement of your personal files.

If physical repairs are also required and things take a little longer than anticipated, you will be asked to pay no more than £100* labour regardless of how long a repair takes. Work will not commence until costs and duration have been agreed.

* Please note: All prices quoted are for labour only - the maximum charge applies per single fault only - multiple faults on the same equipment may incur an extra charge unless they are minor faults - any parts needed will be extra. As mentioned above, work will not commence until costs and duration have been agreed.

If you think your laptop is running hot - then it probably is - don't wait until it's too late.

Laptops that overheat are destined to fail, maybe not immediately but it can be within just a few months. Prevention is better than a very expensive and usually prohibitive repair cost. A clean-out of your laptop cooling system and a fresh application of thermal compound to the GPU and CPU is all that is required to get your laptop running cool again.

Ignoring overheating problems will, in most cases, lead to a totally dead laptop.

Throwing away your old PC or LAPTOP?
It may be worth repairing and to find out will cost you absolutely nothing.

If you have a defective PC (or other electronic device) that's in need of repair, give me a call either for advice or a quotation. I am usually available 9.30am till 7pm any day of the week.
