Tulsa Computer Repair and Laptop Repair Service
Are you looking for dependable Tulsa computer repair with a quick turnaround time? You’ve come to the right place. All computer repair services are not the same. Many companies will claim to have fixed your computer, just to leave you having the same problem a week later. We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all our repair services. We work with these most common issues, and much more:
• Hard Drive Failures
• Virus and Spyware Infection
• Slow computer
• Computer won’t power on
• Computer won’t boot
If you’re experiencing any of these problems, give us a call today at 918-544-2500. We offer same-day computer repair! We also work on laptops.
We will also recommend any suggested upgrades at no additional cost. If you have a traditional hard disk drive, we might suggest upgrading to a solid state drive. There are several advantages to having a solid-state drive, which includes: no moving parts, less power draw, reduced operating system boot time, less noise, no vibration, less heat, and much faster file read and write speeds.
If you’re experiencing a slow computer, it very well could be advantageous to add additional computer memory. Windows XP, Vista, and 7 cannot handle more than 4 GB of RAM if you have a 32-bit operating system. Installing a 64-bit operating system alone can provide tremendous benefits. We can back up your files and programs, install more computer memory, install a 64-bit version of Windows, and restore your files and programs back to the hard drive.
When it comes to virus and spyware infections, we work fast! We almost always suggest using Malwarebytes to help get rid of any viruses, malware or spyware that may be lurking on your computer. Sometimes, the infection can require reinstallation of the operating system. In this case, we will record all of the software you have installed, wipe the hard drive clean, and reinstall all software. This ensures there is no trace of a virus, spyware, or malware left on your computer that could not be removed using some software. Sometimes when you're computer starts slowing down or acting strange, it may not be a computer virus at all. There are many applications available for download over the internet promising to be "free". The problem with these software applications is that some of them can actually harm your computer and your computer files. There have been many instances of innocent looking software designed to do some small task or maybe even a "free" game where it's doing something secretive in the background, like collecting your data and sending it off to servers overseas or even mining for Bitcoins. When you bring us your PC or laptop, we'll also check to make sure you don't have any rogue applications installed. Usually, anti-virus programs will pick up on this behavior, but that's not always the case. Some hackers figure out very clever ways to bypass the anti-virus on computer systems and going undetected for long periods of time. We almost always make sure your computer issue isn't caused by a malicious application first.
When you make the call and decide to use us to repair your PC or laptop, we'll start off by gathering some information from you. For example, information about what you were doing or any application you may have installed before your PC starting giving you trouble is especially helpful when we're diagnosing your computer to determine the best course of action. You can drop your computer off with us or we can come and pick it up from you. Sometimes it is easier to do an on-site visit if you have a large desktop or if you need your computer to have minimal downtime. Whatever situation works best for you, we'll try to make it happen!
Will You Diagnose My Computer Problem For Free Or How Much Will That Cost?
Absolutely we can diagnose your computer issues for free! We only ask that you bring your computer to us to be completely free, but if you'd rather have us come out to your home or business, we can also do that for a small fee. If you decide to use us to repair your computer when we come on-site to your home or business, we'll waive the fee!
How Much Should I Expect To Pay For My Computer Repairs?
Some computer repairs can be very expensive, and if you're using your computer or laptop to earn money in the first place, it's not easy to spare extra cash if it isn't necessary. Unfortunately, many computer people panic when their computer starts failing or won't even power on at all. Paying any costly amount for a PC repair is a nightmare in any industry you may work in, but that fear also can make it harder for many users to make an informed decision. The cost of your PC repair depends on many factors. One of the easiest ways is to give us a call at 918-544-2500 and we'll give you a free quote over the phone. When repairing computers, it depends on a lot of factors and not just the part itself. For example, if your hard drive fails and you'd like to replace it with a new one, you'll have to make sure you have your original operating system key (i.e. Windows 10) so that we can reinstall it for you. Otherwise, if we can't recover it off the failed hard drive, you may have to purchase a new one. Often times these keys can be recovered directly from Microsoft as well, but that's not always the case. Another thing to consider with a failed hard drive is whether or not you will want us to perform any data recovery on your old drive to bring over to the new one. Just because a drive failure occurs doesn't mean everything is lost. We can usually get quite a bit of your data depending on the circumstances! Secondly, sometimes failed components are fairly more expensive than others in your system. If a fan in the computer were to go bad, this is a pretty cheap repair. However, if you have an electrical surge and it destroys your motherboard and RAM installed--the cost of the parts goes up quite a bit. We work with many companies to make sure you don't overpay on computer parts.
Why Should I Hire Your Company To Repair My Computer?
This is a great question! We have over 15 years of experience repairing computers and inside connections with multiple wholesale computer part dealers. So not only do we have the best staff in the area to fix your PC or laptop, we can do it at a much cheaper price than the other places and get it back to you faster. We understand trusting your computer in the hands of a stranger can be a scary thought, but we stand behind our work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If we aren't able to make it right, you don't pay a penny! How much better of a deal can you get than that? We also still maintain a 5-star rating on Google and several other websites. So don't let us convince you, read the reviews from our actual clients and you'll see the proof is in the pudding.
Do You Offer Any Discounts On Your Computer Repair Service?
Yes, we do! Currently, we are offering a package that you can find on Groupon and use today. You'll get $90 worth of services for $45.
What Are Some Things I Can Do To Speed Up My PC?
Delete Pre-Installed 'Bloatware' and Trial Versions
Most PCs come pre-loaded with free trial versions of software that are designed to entice users to upgrade to a complete program or newer version, which can mean your hard drive is filled up with software you may not want or need.
Even if you don't actually use these programs (known as 'bloatware'), the performance of your PC could suffer due to the amount of space the 'free' software takes on your computer. Many 'free' virus scanners, backup tools, and other utilities are also automatically launched on startup, which can mean your computer is working a lot harder than it needs to be.
Simply search through your installed program list and uninstall any of the software you don't want, need, or recognize then reboot your computer to see if you notice an improvement in the overall speed of your system.
Install More RAM
Random Access Memory, better known simply as RAM, is a specific type of memory chip inside your computer that works at high speeds to load data from the internet and access information stored in your hard drive.
If your PC is running slower than you'd like it to, give us a call to talk about adding more RAM to your computer, especially if you often use your PC to play video games, stream movies, or work with multiple tabs open at once.
Defragment Your Hard Drive
Your computer should come with a defragment program which works to sync files together in order to improve performance by reducing the number of places your PC needs to access when performing a specific task.
While your defrag program should be set to automatically run on a regular basis, this might not be enough to keep your PC running at optimal speed. Simply type 'defrag' into the taskbar, select your hard drive, and tell your system to 'optimize' - this should reduce the displayed fragmentation rate to 0, which may help reduce system lags.
Run The 'Disk Cleanup' Utility Regularly
During normal use of your computer, your hard drive can become clogged down with temporary internet files, data in your recycling bin, and other unwanted 'stuff' that can negatively impact the speed of your PC.
Disk Cleanup is a built-in utility in Microsoft Windows that searches your hard drive for files that you either don't need or you no longer use and once the targeted files are located, the utility clears those extra files from your drive.
In Windows 10, simply search for 'disk cleanup' in the taskbar, select it, and choose the types of files you'd like to delete. Once you've done this, go ahead and select 'OK'. On older versions of Windows, Disk Cleanup can be found under 'Start' - 'All Programs' - 'Accessories' - 'System Tools'.
Limit Programs At Startup
Having too many programs and apps launch at startup can create a type of digital traffic jam on your PC, with thousands of files jockeying for space. Take control of which programs automatically open upon startup by using the Task Manager to manually de-select as many apps as you can - this should provide you with a noticeable boost in performance.
