Servicing and Upgrades

It is very common for computers to slow down over time.

Why do computers slow down?

  • Lots of programs have been installed throughout the life of the computer. Some of which will no longer be in use but are still taking up space.
  • Viruses are often a cause of a very slow computer.
  • Sometimes hardware issues can be the root cause of a slow computer.
  • Updates installed automatically by Microsoft often cause performance issues, especially if those updates have not been tested prior to installation.
  • Computers often slow down simply because the software installed on them is far more demanding than it was when the computer was first installed.

If your PC or laptop is performing slower than it used to, then we can give it a full service in order to speed it up. In cases where your system is exceptionally slow we can also back up your data and restore the system to its factory settings making it as fast as when you first purchased it.

Give your computer a serious performance boost

If you want to really kick-start your computer in terms of its performance you can opt for a hardware upgrade.

In cases where computer performance is very important, but you are not ready to purchase a new computer we recommend installing a solid state drive. A solid state drive can improve the performance of your computer significantly and often it can make an older computer perform much faster than a brand new one.

Solid state drives are available for both computers and laptops.

We are so confident in the performance improvements that a solid state drive will bring that we offer a full money back guarantee if you are not satisfied.

When is it not appropriate to service a computer?

Sometimes a computer is simply too old to be serviced or even to have its hardware upgraded. In these cases it may not be cost effective to spend money upgrading the computer of the benefits are not going to be noticeable.

We generally use the CPU or computer processor as a good indicator of the overall performance of a computer and this can be used to determine whether or not a computer can perform significantly better after servicing or upgrading. If we believe that a computer will not benefit significantly from a service then we will let you know before we carry out the work as we wouldn’t want to sell you a product or service that would not provide you with good value for money.

In these cases we would advise you to consider purchasing a new computer or we would help you to get the most from your existing computer whilst spending as little as possible; that way you have the option of purchasing a computer in the near future but without being under any pressure to do so.

What our clients say

Below you can find just a small selection of testimonials from some of our retail customers.

Hi would just like to say a big thankyou. Have had the upgrade done that I won recently and am very happy with the results.

Helen Duncan

I was impressed with the quiet, efficient and friendly manner in which David listened to the problems I was having with my Computer. After carefully examining the various options available David accepted my decision to purchase a new Computer (My current Unit was passed it’s best) and arranged for a new Computer to be purchased and set-up to my requirements, including the transfer of all pertinent information from the old machine.

Keith Smith

This service was excellent. The person came to my house, assessed what the IT problem was with my email and attachments and fixed it quickly. I have had no problems  ever since.

A good reliable and bespoke service which I will definitely use again if required.

Shona Weir

I can only thank, David not only his help but his thorough expertise of all computer maters relating to the issues I had with my computer. Not to mention the fact that he was always at the end of the phone for any follow up questions. I would have no hesitation whatsoever, in recommending him to anyone.

Alfred A. Beattie

I’m absolutely delighted with the work Qwertyit did for me recently. It was a tricky job involving the replacement of a cracked screen.
Dave was extremely helpful and professional and I would definitely use them again.
Excellent value from a locally based company who put personal service first.
Thank you!

Jane Paterson

Thank you so much for your help in solving our computer problems. It is a pleasure to recommend your efficiency and helpfulness. Two ‘oldies’ are so grateful that we now have somebody to consult to sort out our computer problems.  Thank you!

Karl and Audrey Prakel

When our ELDERLY computer would not start we decided to contact Qwerty IT Services in the hope that it could be saved and all its files. The fact that David would come to the house was a bonus.  David responded quickly and was so pleasant and friendly, explaining what was needing done in a way we could understand without being patronising.

Our elderly computer is now up and running but we know that it is on borrowed time so we are now working with David to have a new computer built to our own specifications.

Excellent service from start to finish.

I tried the machine tonight and it’s clearly muck quicker. The software starts up a lot quicker and seems a bit more responsive too. All other things I tried no longer had the pause from before so it’s really good.
