    Do I Need to Upgrade my PC?


    Many people prefer to upgrade their PC rather than buying new. Here is the lowdown on upgrading.


    There are basically 3 types of upgrades that we would recommend. Memory, Hard Drive and Operating System. Let's have a look at each of these individually.


    MEMORY upgrades are by far the cheapest and best upgrade you can perform. If your computer has less than 1GB of memory installed, this is the option to go for. This will, in most cases, give an instant performance boost.


    HARD DRIVE upgrades are best if you are running out of space as shown in 'My Computer'. These upgrades are not quite as common as memory upgrades due to the readily available external USB hard drives commonly used as storage.


    OPERATING SYSTEM upgrades will bring your PC up to the newest operating system available. Not all computers will be compatible to do this and some will need memory upgrades and/or hard drive upgrades.


    If you require more information or advice on upgrading, please complete the contact form.

    What are viruses and how do I get rid?


    Viruses are man-made pieces of code that have various functions depending on what the programmer wants to achieve. Viruses have the ability to change settings on your computer and others try to scam you into buying their software.


    If your computer starts to behave differently or you get strange messages appearing, you may be infected with a virus. Not all symptoms like this are viruses.


    If in doubt, disconnect your computer from the Internet by turning off your router and call your local experts, Countywide Computer Services immediately.

    What are Backups and do I need them?


    Ask yourself a question. If I irretrievably lost everything on my computer, would it bother me?


    If things you have downloaded over the years, personal photograph, music, documents etc are stored on your computer, then you should be making regular backups.


    Here at Countywide Computer Services, we can advise on the best method of backing up for you or we can even do it for you.


    Please ask for advice or to book our services using the contact form.

    Data Recovery, What's that?


    Have you ever deleted a file or picture and then emptied the Recycle Bin?


    Whenever you delete something off your computer, it is still actually on the hard drive until it gets overwritten by another file. Deleting it only removes the link to it.


    Providing the file hasn't been overwritten, Countywide Computer Services can use special software that will scan your hard drive and recover deleted files.

    I am absolutely delighted with the service I received from Countywide computer services. We have had major problems with our computers, which we thought could not be rectified, as we have used the services of other technicians previously. However,along came Andy, who displayed a high level of professionalism and expert knowledge. He has completely overhauled both our domestic computers and they are now running at optimum levels.I cannot recommend this firm highly enough and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Problems were sorted in a highly efficient and unobtrusive way. I am so impressed with his expertise that I have recommended him to all my friends and family and have booked him to come every 3 months to maintain what he has achieved with our computers, which we never thought possible. Nothing was too much trouble. We were astounded at his knowledge and calm manner of delivery. I am a teacher, and my computer is essential to my job. We can't thank him enough for sorting everything out for us. USE this firm....You will never look back.We are so glad we found you. Thankyou so much.

    A virus attack had me in a panic. Sent for Andy and he turned up on time. He was absolutely brilliant! He dealt with the problem quickly and efficiently. He explained exactly what had happened to my computer and even managed to do a few extra adjustments while he was waiting for things to happen. Can't thank him enough and I will have no hesitation in calling him if I get in trouble again. I will also highly recommend him to my friends. His cost were very reasonable indeed. Thanks Andy.

    Andy I can't "Thank you enough" for the wonderful job you did yesterday [8/12/2009] to have sorted out 2 Computers in such a short time [in my estimation] was quite unbelievable. Especially as 1 computer was only 3 weeks old. Your phone number is in my phone book, in fact there is no other. I hope in the nicest possible sense that I do not need to call you out in the near future but knowing my lack of experience I cant promise not too! Once again thank you.
