Does My Computer Really need Maintenance?
Time and time again we find that our customers have dreadfully slow computers. Usually, they think that it is normal so they just deal with the slowness of the computer. Your computer slowing down is your computers way of telling you that there is something wrong with the system. If your car or your lawnmower starts making strange noises, has trouble starting, or just has major performance issues what do you do? You probably take it to a mechanic to diagnose and repair those problems right? Also if you want those cars and lawnmowers to consistently run well and last a long time then you have them serviced on a regular basis. We maintain our cars lawnmowers by changing the oil, spark plugs, air filters, etc. right? Well guess what computers are similar cars and lawnmowers in that way.
Computers need to be maintained to stay in good running condition. When the inside of the computer accumulates dust it restricts airflow. This creates more heat and the hotter they get the slower the computer runs. When a computer reaches a certain temperature those components can become damaged. Just like your car’s air filter can affect your gas mileage and the power in your vehicle. It’s the same thing with the junk files that accumulate in your computer. Occasionally a computer needs to be put up on a bench instead of a lift and tuned up which consists of some of the steps listed below. For this service we charge $80 and we generally see a major performance increase.
From time to time we do run specials on our tune up service so don’t forget to check to see if we are running one. As a part of this service we also install software on your system to allow you to maintain your computer yourself on a regular basis. For our customers who are not interested in learning how to do this and just want their computer to run better without having to do work with it. We offer a Monitoring and Maintenance program.
