SCP Computers - System Upgrades & Computer Repairs

Using the SCP Computers computer repair service you can be sure your computer will be repaired/upgraded professionally and at an affordable cost.

 
 

System Upgrades

Typical upgrades are hard drives and memory. Increasing the capacity of your hard drive will allow you to store more data (music, files, photos, etc.) on your computer. Increasing the amount of memory is an affordable way of vastly improving the speed / performance of your computer.

With Solid State Drives (SSD) becoming more affordable, replacing your existing hard drive with a SSD dramatically increases the speed of your system. We can install SSDs in desktops and laptops and have the tools and knowledge to mirror your old drive onto the new SSD so you will not lose any of your data and programs. The only difference you will notice is the speed.

If you decide it is time for you to purchase a new PC then we can advise on the best system for you. When you have purchased your new computer then we can transfer your files, music, pictures, etc., from the old computer to the new one.

Server Upgrades

Is it time your company ugraded its servers? SCP Computers can advise on you on the best upgrade and migration options. We will also spec out a replacement server and obtain a quotation for the hardware and neccessary software licences.

Once you've invested in a new server SCP Computers will then:

  • Configure the new server
  • Migrate your old system, settings and logons to the new server
  • Migrate your data
  • Decommission your old server

Typically all of the above can be achieved over a weekend.

Computer Repairs

Computers are made up of several components, some of which have a certain life span. The most common components to fail are :

  • Power Supply Units (PSU), the part you plug the mains power supply into.
  • Cooling Fans. Computers have one or more fans in them to keep the Central Processing Unit (CPU) and other components from overheating. Quite often the first signs of failure is an increase in the noise level coming from inside your computer.
  • Hard Drives. This is where data, programs and operating system are stored. Typically the metal disks inside are spinning at 7200 R.P.M. and after a while things start to wear out. If the computer starts becoming slow at opening files, has random crashes or will not start up, the hard drive could be starting to fail. The earlier you do something about it the more chances you will have of recovering all of your data.

All of the above can be replaced at little cost.

When we replace a hard drive we mirror the data, programs and operating system from the old drive on to the new one, wherever possible.
