Same day computer repairs in Mullaloo - the service options

It pays to utilize the skill and experience of a professional computer repair service. Since 2005 we have developed a reputation for quality service which resolves issues quickly and in best practice. Band aid solutions tend not to last long - we get to the real underlying causes of problems. You do not pay anymore for professional service, and often you will even pay less because of the time frame.

We are user friendly and communicate technical terms and issues in plain speak.

 

How safe is your remote access service?

When we log into your computer it as though the technician is sitting there with you. You can see everywhere we go, reading error logs, running diagnostic scans and so on. We cannot open a folder without you seeing it. The remote access software we use for computer support, from Mullaloo to Broome, is industry standard fully encrypted and invisible to scammers.

This service is available 7 days a week to around 8pm each evening.

Here are some of the advantages of workshop based service:

  • we can run system diagnostics, integrity checks on your drive or graphics engine, deep level malware scans beyond the scope antivirus programs, and the large updates we see in Windows, over many hours without you paying for that extra time.

Most call outs involve one hour jobs, but if you have a a faulty drive for example, and need the data recovered from that drive we will switch over to cheaper workshop based price quote, and charge only an extra $49 for time onsite.

examples of recent work we did onsite which involved workshop diversion.

  • unstable hard drive with imminent risk of hardware failure (terminal state) & data recovery
  • failed mainboard and replacement
  • replacement of hard drive in inaccessible laptop (no HDD access-requiring a tear down)

Recent examples of jobs completed onsite

  • replacement of the power grid onsite
  • computer keeps restarting
  • reconfigure email settings to sync with device wide emails

  • check and reconfigure best practice back and cloud based backup

A new pricing option:

We now offer a basic level of service to cater for those who don't mind the time it takes to do all the things mentioned above (not everyone has data, emails, programs etc to migrate over). We take care of the technical side and you do your own reinstalling of programs, setup of emails and so on. So for the example above of an upgrade to SSD the optional service includes:

  • assembly and fitting of the new SSD (SSD hardware not included in support charges obviously)
  • installation of Windows 10 and activated by your current valid licence (even though the free win10 offer has long expired we can usually activate from windows 7 to windows 10 with a new (free) digital licence (worst case scenario is you need to buy a new licence - we see this in only a tiny % of cases)
  • cost for this basic service is $149*

Interesting facts about SSD (solid state drives) - Should you upgrade?

There are inherent problems with normal spinning platter hard disks. They have moving parts which generate heat. Some computers have poor ventilation systems and generate more heat than others with better fan systems. These spinning platter drives and getting pretty ancient now. The old IBM 650 had this technology in 1956.

The new SSD (solid state drives) took a long time to get to reasonable prices. They are currently at an all time low for our "preferred SSD drives". Some SSD's have a reputation for reliability and long mean hours, other not so reliable. A good quality SSD (certain models from Samsung are good. Samsung SSD's are now owned by Seagate - home of the popular Barracuda HDD).

Contrary to popular myths about SSD's:

  • SSD's are transistor driven drive with no moving parts. They are super quiet and super fast and do not generate the same degree of heat as a standard platter drive. The flash is very robust and these drives can reach a great many hours of work before failure points. Some manufacturers claims up to a million hours. It is all true by and large.
  • SSD's are more likely to lose data than platter drives - this may have been the case in the early days but not anymore.
  • SSD's are not that much faster than a high performance desktop drive - the performance difference between HDD and SSD is night and day. There is a feeling of flowing rather than click and wait on platter drives.
