Computer Repair Service

Computer repair service it’s a complicated work. When your Computer has issue there might be lots of reasons. There is no person who could tell what’s wrong with your computer without diagnosing it. Diagnosing your computer issue it’s the same procedure what doctors do diagnosing your health. Sometimes there is more than one reason for a problem with your computer. That’s why it is very important to carry out a diagnostic procedure very carefully. From time to time after your computer has been repaired and work normally, it fails later on just because the diagnosis process has not been carried out correctly and other undiagnosed issue cased a problem again. We have a strict procedure here at PCMarc while we diagnose any problem that may have arisen with your computer. Once the issue is diagnosed all of our engineers have a complete check-up list after they perform computer repair service. They will check all possibilities to make sure that the same issue will not occur in the future.

Types of computer failures

There are two types of computer failures – software and hardware. Most common software problems are related to viruses, malwares, spywares, deleted files, corrupted system or registry. Usually they are created by computer user. This problem is not related to any mechanical failure with your computer. In worst case scenario you may lose all your data. Our computer repair service at PCMarc is able to recover all data caused by any software or operation system failure. Sometimes software issues can be fixed remotely but usually it requires on-site visit.
Hardware failure means that one of your computer parts has failed and caused a problem – usually preventing your computer to boot. There are situations that the part could be fixed but usually it has to be replaced. For example when your CPU overheats it would require a refitting of a radiator or fan. If for another example your hard drive fails, there is a possibility to fix it but it is a short term solution and it eventually will fail again in the future. The best way is (and we practice it at PCMarc Computer repair service) to backup all your data and transfer it to a new hard drive.
It is highly recommended to keep your computer maintained regularly to avoid any data loss or hardware failure.

Laptop Repair Service

Laptop repair service is very similar to computer repair service. The software failures such as virus, spyware, malware are exactly the same as with computer repair service described above. The only difference is with hardware failures. As you may know laptops uses different parts than PC Computers. Generally laptop parts are smaller. The laptop repair service for hardware failures is usually connected with screen replacements, overheated chipsets, hard drive replacements.

Computer and laptop upgrades

It is easier to upgrade computer than laptop as generally there are are plenty more upgrade parts available for home PC computers. When it comes down to laptops there are limited options available as you cannot for example upgrade your processor but you still have couple solutions to boost your performance. You can add more RAM memory or you can upgrade your hard drive. Both will boost your performance but if your processor is not fast enough the performance may be slightly slower than expected. If you own computer you can modify it the way you want it and keep upgrading it as often as you can. Another difference is the cost of upgrades. Generally laptop parts are more expensive than computer one and they don’t provide a good performance/value ratio compared to computers.
