SERVICES AND PRICES:
PC and Mac repairs: No fix, no fee or £50 + parts if required. The most common problems are 1) issues preventing startup. 2) slow startup / shutdown times and poor program performance. 3) System crashes / BSOD errors. Sometimes a new hard drive will be required and / or a reinstallation of Windows or MacOS. Please remember to backup your files on a regular basis. In terms of hardware I can help with hard drives and RAM. I don't fix or replace screens, power sockets, headphone jacks.
PC and Mac upgrades: Prices start at £50 + parts. Upgrading your current PC or Mac is by far the most cost effective way of improving the performance of your machine versus buying a new one. Swapping out your old hard drive for a new Solid state drive (SSD) and increasing the amount of RAM (memory) will give a HUGE boost to older machines. You should also upgrade to Windows 10 if you are running an older version of Windows. The most benefit will be for machines running Windows Vista, 7 or 8.
Apple Macs pre 2016 / 2017 are usually upgradable but it depends on the model. Most Macs post 2016 already have an SSD installed and tend to be difficult to upgrade due to Apple's move to lock down their machines. Send me details of your machine and I can tell you if it's upgradable or not.
Data recovery: No data, no fee. £50 + 20p per GB if data recovered. Only pay for the data you want to keep. Most types of storage devices covered - including internal hard drives, external hard drives, SD cards, flash drives, phones. Most filesystems covered including Windows, Mac, Linux formatted devices (NTFS/ FAT/ APFS/ HFS+/ EXT). Please see the 'Data recovery' page for full details.

If you have a desktop PC I only need the unit + power lead. I don't need peripherals such as screens, keyboards, mice, cameras etc.
If at all possible bring your devices to me as it is very difficult to say how much time will be required for any given job. In most cases there is a lot of 'dead' time when data is downloading / being copied / installed / scanned. This is always the case with data recovery when scanning and recovery can be many hours for devices with large data capacities.
