PC Selection, Installation &
So many choices, so little time…
@ Home Computer Services can help you determine the best type of PC to fit your
needs and budget, and provide the best sources for acquiring it. @ Home
Computer Services can even procure or build the system for you if appropriate. When the system is ready,
your technician can install and
configure the PC, and connect it to your network and/or Internet access
and even formally introduce you to your new PC.
PC's are complex and when things go wrong they
can become beasts. @ home Computer
Service has experienced technicians and are adept at quickly figuring out
PC problems, and in many cases fixing them right on the spot. In cases
where hardware has broken down, your technician can determine your best
options for getting the system back up and running, and provide
replacement parts. In the process of troubleshooting, it can also be
opportune to upgrade at the same time, to improve performance, storage
capacity or functionality of your PC.
Hardware Installations / Upgrades:
installations can be intimidating even for people who are computer-savvy.
Whether you're adding a scanner, a bigger disk drive, more RAM, or any
number of other hardware upgrades (or replacements), @ Home Computer
help in a number of ways. We can provide the best recommendations for
achieving your goals, the best brands and most cost-effective sources from
which to obtain parts. @ Home Computer Services can also provide parts directly, and
install them for you, while guaranteeing that things will work when it's
all put back together. With @ Home Computer Services, you'll always get "plug
and play" rather than "plug and pray"!
Software Installations / Upgrades:
Unfortunately, just like with
hardware, software installation can be perilous and is often tedious, such
as when upgrading your computer operating system. @ Home Computer
Services will make any software installation or upgrade painless for you
by making sure things are set up right. Our technicians know where all the
updated drivers are, and they know the things that software manufacturers
don't tell you in the manuals, such as how different software packages and
options effect each other, degrade performance, etc.
Privacy and Security
Are you aware of all the different ways that private and potentially
sensitive data (such as email, credit card numbers, family data, etc.) can
be seen by other people you don't know or trust? @ Home Computer
Services can do a security assessment of your current network, PC
applications, settings, and habits, and recommend ways to keep private
data private, while still getting the benefits of networking and Internet
access. As part of our standard services, we can set up a firewall to
protect your network against outside intruders.
