Repairs & Upgrades
We can repair all makes of PCs, whether it's a virus, a Windows
problem or a hardware failure. We can often make a diagnosis just from
a description of a fault. It can often be a simple fault that can be
fixed very quickly and at little cost.
After constant use, downloads, program
installations, viruses & spyware getting on your machine, often the
quickest and most economical fix for your system is to return it to
how it was when you first received it as a new unit. A wipe of your
hard disk and reinstallation of Windows can be effected for as little
as £40. Use the
'Contact Us' page to
send a description of your
problem and we will contact you to arrange a consultation.
Even the oldest PCs have parts that
can be used to keep down the cost of upgrading your PC, the most
obvious being the monitor and the hard drive. The most important
components that make your computer capable or running today's resource
hungry software are the motherboard, processor & memory.
The first thing to upgrade should be your motherboard. A processor and
memory upgrade go hand in hand with this. You can upgrade to a very
good specification motherboard and put in the cheapest processor and
memory and upgrade these two components further down the line when
However, if you 'upgrade' to a poor motherboard then you severely
limit your ability to upgrade in the future. Many cheap PCs you see in
some of the superstores use very old motherboards which allow very
little or no upgrade possibilities. The processor on the motherboard
is the maximum speed that the motherboard can take, therefore to
upgrade and make your computer faster in the future you will have to
upgrade the motherboard before anything else.
Computer Clinic PCs come with a good quality motherboard that allows
you to upgrade your processor, memory etc in the future without
replacing the motherboard as well.
We recommend AMD processors as for the average user these represent
terrific value for money and £4£ are the fastest processors available.
Most home users would be happy with an AMD Athlon XP but for
hardcore users we recommend AMD's Athlon 64 processor which will
put your computer at the cutting edge of technology.
