Cincinnati Computer Repair

Cincinnati Computer Repair

  • New Computer Setup – Need your software, email, settings, anti-virus, printer and wi-fi set up on your new system? Not a problem.

  • Virus & Malware Removal – If you’re getting strange pop-ups or if you accidentally let one of the fake “Microsoft tech support” callers onto your computer, let us have a look to make sure it’s clean.

  • Repair Installation of Operating System – This one is self explanatory but we do run a hard drive diagnostic first to make sure there isn’t an underlying hardware problem for ‘blue screen of death’ type issues.

  • Setup Backup Software – Also self-explanatory, however we see many customers using their ‘backup’ drives to simply store their pictures/data on. Unfortunately that leaves them with a single point of failure and is not the correct way to backup data.

  • Data Recovery – We elaborate more on data recovery here, but the short of it is to stop using the computer or drive immediately and call us.

Cincinnati Computer Upgrades

  • Video Card – This is typically only an upgrade for increasing video game performance or running additional monitors. Although, some special applications such as those from Adobe and AUTODESK benefit from powerful video cards.

    NOTE: Your power supply may also need to be upgraded to handle the additional electrical load from higher end video cards.

  • Solid State Drive – Replacing your mechanical hard drive with a solid state hard drive can drastically decrease the time it takes to load Windows, software, or even web pages.

    A highly recommended upgrade for any system.

  • Mechanical Hard Drive – Although we recommend solid state drives where possible, sometimes you need more disk space than you do speed. This is where mechanical hard drives still shine because they are much cheaper per gigabyte.

  • RAM / Memory – Think of RAM as the same as your ability to do math in your head. When you run out of space in your head, you have to start writing numbers down, which is much slower. The same thing happens with RAM but instead of writing it to paper, it writes the numbers to the hard drive which is much slower than RAM. In other words, the more RAM you have, the more and bigger programs you can have running at the same time.

    4GB is the minimum for modern systems. We recommend at least 8GB.

  • Processor / CPU upgrades – Even if you have an older desktop, upgrading the CPU may be a cost-effective way to increase system performance, especially since those older CPUs have gone down in price.  Some newer, low-cost systems have an integrated CPU which makes upgrading impossible.

    For most systems, we recommend an Intel i3 or i5 or AMD equivalent.
