Computer Repairs – Crawley Computer Centre
At Crawley Computer Centre we offer a comprehensive repair service in our fully equipped workshop based in Crawley for all your computer repairs. The first thing we will carry out is a full diagnostic that will check the health of the computer by testing the main components within your computer including power supply (PSU), hard disk drive, DVD drive, memory, processor and motherboard.
The hard drive test will scan for bad sectors which can cause problems such as BSOD (blue screen of death), freezing, crashing and non-boot of Windows. Sometimes a bad sector can be repaired but this can be only a short term fix. The only true fix is to save data where needed and replace the drive and reload the operating system providing you have a valid licence.
We then scan the memory modules for errors as this too can cause similar symptoms like a bad sector on a hard drive. A faulty memory module can cause corruption of your data as the information is stored in memory before being written to the hard drive. Faulty memory is easily replaced dependent of which type you have installed, we stock most types of memory for a fast computer repairs service.
Once the hard drive, memory, PSU and DVD drive is checked we then inspect the motherboard for damage or worn components. We will then proceed to clear the dust and fluff from the fans and motherboard that can cause overheating and causing unexplained shut downs.
When the hardware checks are complete we continue to assess the software for signs of corruption, infection and missing drivers or service packs all of which will affect the performance and security of your system.
When we complete the diagnostic service and the hardware has passed but find issues with the software we would suggest a Healthcheck service that will deal with software faults that we found during the diagnostic check.
The health check will scan and clean any infections detected, Install any missing service packs and missing updates for windows. We also check for updates for adobe reader, adobe flash, adobe air, java and Silver light and remove any fake software that will have a negative effect on your pc.
We will recommend an internet security package to ensure your computer remains protected. If the computer is very badly infected or corrupted the health check service may not be able to correct the problems we would than recommend a full reload of windows which would involve wiping windows and all data from the hard drive and then re installing the version of windows your system came with. We can also quote to save your data before we wipe the hard drive.
