Laptop issues???

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011


Laptop computers are the hottest PC on the market now. Many laptops need repairs shortly after purchase due to various reasons, mostly owner mistakes. Here are a few tips to give your laptop a longer and more productive life cycle.

~ Use a cool pad – cool pads can extend the life of a laptop immensely by keeping it cooler. Heat kills computers!
~ Avoid online gaming websites – free gaming websites carry potential viruses. If you like playing games, use a Pay to Play site, they are much safer.
~ Avoid Peer To Peer websites – peer to peer not only shares files, but lots of viruses as well.
~ Purchase a case or nice bag to carry your laptop – one drop can ruin a good laptop and good carrying case is invaluable.
~ Anti-Virus Software – good anti-virus software is priceless, but can be worthless if it is not updated. Run regular, scheduled updates on your anti-virus software.

If you run into issues and need some assistance, call me and I’ll repair your laptop and get it back to peak performance.

Recycle or Replace Your PC?

Trouble deciding to repair or recycle your old pc? Take a few things into consideration. How old is the computer and what operating system does the PC use? Here is a list of the past 5 operating systems Windows have offered:

  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows XP
  • Windows ME
  • Windows 2000

If the computer in question is using ME or 2000, definitely recycle it. A computer with XP, Vista may be worth repairing, depending on a few variables. Windows 7 is the current operating system offered by Windows and should definitely be repaired if there are issues.
