Operating System Restoration
Performing a system restoration to return the computer to its original condition may be necessary if the operating system files are damaged, the hard drive is corrupted, or the computer is infected by a virus.

Random Access Memory (RAM) controls the performance of your programs. As new programs are installed and old programs are updated, more RAM is required. If more RAM is not added, your overall performance of your computer will be slower. Our trained technicians can diagnose these issues and upgrade your memory with ease.

Computer not running as fast as it did when you first purchased it? Internet seems slow all of a sudden? Does it take forever to start your computer or open your software?

New Computer Setup
The first steps that you take after purchasing a new computer are very important.

Also, incorrectly connected devices can cause wear and tear over time and lead to critical system problems. With our New Computer Setup service, we will connect all of your hardware (mouse, keyboard, monitor, printer, etc.) and configure all of your software to get you started the right way.
