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.
I’m delighted with the prompt and efficient service Dave provided.
He did a first class job of upgrading my iMac and took time and patience to answer my questions, no matter how basic!
We’re very fortunate to have a locally based company like QwertyIT in our area.
I can thoroughly recommend them.
Fantastic service every time. Would highly recommend David at QWERTY IT.
Highly recommend Dave’s services. We had him replace the power supply on our PC and upgrade the hard drive in a new laptop. He was very efficient, clear about the process and price.
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!
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.
Excellent service from Dave, Quick response, friendly and careful consultation, and problem sorted. Would definitely recommend.

Speedy and without any haggle.
Just a little note to thank you very much for the work carried out on our Computer We were very pleased with your prompt attention to this matter and hope that you will be of service to us if needed in the future Internet meantime working and we shall recommend you to our friends Thanks again Jim and Sheila Cooper.
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.
David of Qwerty IT Services gives a very prompt and professional service at reasonable prices. I would recommend this company 100%.
I was very happy with the work done by David at Qwertyitservices in setting up my new laptop. Would certainly recommend to anyone.
Responded quickly to my call to set up a new Printer. Can highly recommend.
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.
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.
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.
Dave was extremely helpful and informative when we decided to purchase a new PC. He gave us options to select from and we ordered and received the computer within a week. Dave copied all info from our previous computer and gave us help using our new one.
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.
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.
We are delighted with the speedy, efficient service you gave us in setting up our home wifi. We cannot recommend you too highly and will certainly use your business for future assistance. For older people who have not grown up with IT we found it a comfort to know we have someone we can turn to when problems arise or if we require advice.
Thanks for both the advice and the photo info. And once again your 24hrs turn-a-round. Problem solved. I certainly am reassured to know that someone who REALLY knows what they are talking about. And will be passing on your contact details to anyone I find in need of professional computer services.
Would highly recommend David for his service
Have used David to fix various problems and install hardware on many occasions and found him to be excellent and very knowledgeable,does not talk down to those less PC savvy.
Excellent service, prompt responses, expert advice.
