Introduction

Specialising in PC repairs, computer problems, installations, upgrades, computer builds, networking, maintenance, services, virus removal, tuition and more.
Many people ask the “Why is my computer getting slower?” question each day. Well, to be honest, they’re asking because the computer probably is actually getting slower.

Sick Computer
As time passes, your hardware will age and as a result, it will slow down. Moreover, if you have filled your hard drive with junk files, then your computer will become really slow.
It is possible that you have a virus that is causing your entire system to become slower because it is screwing up vital files that your computer needs to run properly, but all in all, there are many things that can cause your computer to slow down and there are many things we can do to improve the situation.
--- We offer a FREE 2 month antivirus and internet security package which we supply and install at your home or office. ---------
Tuition and Advice

We can offer one-to-one tuition within your home or workplace, on your computer. The areas of training covered are so vast it's very difficult to cover them here, but as an example we can offer personal training on particular applications like WORD or EXCEL, or offer more general training for FILE MANAGEMENT, ORGANISING YOUR PHOTOS, SENDING EMAIL or SURFING THE NET. During our INTERNET training you might want to be shown how to download programs like Skype from the internet and how to avoid nasty viruses.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Diagnostics

We attempt to diagnose all equipment on site or in our workshop and give you a report on our findings. Diagnosis is normally attained quickly but can take longer on some occasions if the fault is more complex.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Computer and Laptop Repairs

If you are having trouble with your computer we can help. Maybe it is running slower than usual? Maybe you have a virus? Maybe it turns on but don’t do anything? Maybe you keep getting the blue screen of death? Maybe it just crashes when you do a certain thing or run a certain program? Or maybe it is just totally dead? Do not worry!! Any of the above problems can normally be easily solved without having to buy a whole new system. In today’s financially difficult times, why waste money buying a new system, when your old one can easily be modified or fixed. Our technicians have years of experience of PC and laptop repairs, and will have no trouble advising you about any repairs needed.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We ensure your hardware / software is configured correctly to suit your needs. If you are unsure how certain applications run, we take our time showing you how to operate your new software.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PC's Built to Specification

Everyone uses computers for different reasons, a few of them are browsing the internet, editing video and music , downloading / sharing data , graphic design , online gaming , accounts , business control , keeping in touch with family & friends etc etc.
Whatever your reasons for purchasing a new computer we take into account what your needs are and custom build a computer tailored to suit your needs. Meaning no more upgrades incurring extra costs that you might encounter buying elsewhere.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PC Installation

It all seems so easy. Just connect a few wires. Stick in a CD. Play around with a few settings and you're away.

Only it's not. Somehow you don't seem to have the right connection to the printer. The disc runs OK but you're missing the correct ‘drivers'. There's no dial tone on your Internet and you can't access your files from the network.

If this all sounds frustratingly familiar, give me a call and I'll send someone from my team round to get the job done in no time. Let's face it. You haven't got the time and you don't need the stress.

Installing and connecting your new PC can take a tremendous amount of time. Wizard Electronics PC setup and connection service ensures that your home PC is set up, running and fully tested, allowing you the time to get on with other things. Every stage from installing software, setting up your hardware, setting up your email account and more will be done by a qualified technician.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Network Installation

Experience the freedom to surf the net in rooms apart from your computer room, check your email on your laptop or play your games console online in any room of the house. With the freedom of a wireless network all this is possible. With a wireless network installation there is no need to run untidy cabling through your house. You get all the benefits of a computer network: share files, share a printer and more, and the ability to access it all from anywhere in your home.
When the technicians install your wireless network, you also get the added reassurance that your surfing on a secure wireless connection. There is no need to worry about strangers using your wireless network because your important information will be secure whilst you surf.

Home Networking

If you are thinking of buying another computer, or maybe you already have more than one computer. Why not network them together. Once networked you will be able to choose what information each computer can access from one another. Share Internet connection, printers and much more. You may have young children that have access to the Internet. With our recommended software this can prove an ideal way of monitoring their browsing, to ensure that when they browse the internet they do so safely. Whether your preference is wireless or cable, we will make sure the cost is minimal and have your network up and running in no time.

Office Networking

We offer a thorough consultation with all our network customers which enables us to provide the best network infrastructure possible for your business.
Hardwired networks (meaning terminal points fixed to the walls) are still the fastest and most reliable method of networking. On average such networks are 10x faster than wireless technology and far more secure. We understand, however, that you may require wireless access in your office, and that's why we recommend a hybrid infrastructure which benefits the convenience of a wireless access point with the speed and reliability of a hardwired network.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kids Surf Safe

If your kids use your computer, or have their own computer, then you will want them to be protected from the dangers that the Internet can pose. Wizard Electronics Kids Safe Online set up service is specifically designed with the concerns of parents in mind. We will secure your PC and protect your children so all the family can surf the web in safety. We will show you all of the controls and settings so you know how to alter them so your Internet access is appropriate for every member of your family. You can then rest assured that your PC is a safer place for your children.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reinstall System & Drivers

If your computer takes a few weeks to arrive at the desktop or just won’t load your operating system at all, then it may be time to start from scratch and reinstall your operating system.

If you are familiar with doing this then you will know just how long it can take, and it can take a while. So, why not let us collect your PC where we can install or upgrade your computer with the latest operating system, providing it meets the minimum required specification. If you are opting for a full operating system install then you will lose any data that is stored on the PC. It is recommended that you backup any critical information before proceeding or take advantage of our Data Backup service and we will do it for you (The data backup service is an extra £10).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Data Cleansing

When you’ve bought a new PC, disposing of your old PC can become an issue. Do you pass it to a family member, sell it on eBay or donate it to the local primary school raffle? If you are planning on passing your computer to anyone once you have finished with it, you should consider data cleansing a necessity. Reformatting your hard drive is not enough to protect against identity theft or to prevent confidential documents being extracted. With just a few simple pieces of information, someone could get a passport, a mortgage, personal credit or a driving license in your name.
