Computer Upgrade

When your PC, Mac or laptop is running a bit slow a computer upgrade or laptop upgrade can breath new life into it. When you run out of room you can upgrade your hard drive to a larger one. Replacing an old mechanical hard drive with a new SSD (Solid State Drive) is one of the biggest performance boost an old computer can get.

Also some older devices do no have enough RAM to run modern programs and operating systems. For normal use we recommend 4GB, for heavy use you will need a minimum of 8GB. We can upgrade any part of your computer or laptop and have listed a few popular PC ones below.

Majority of computer and laptop repairs can be completed within an hour. To talk to one of our techs about a computer upgrade call 5478 3534, or if you would rather speak to a tech in person you can drop into our Mooloolaba store anytime. You can also use the Contact page or Email to send a message and we will get back to you asap.

Maintenance

These simple maintenance steps will help you prolong the life of your device and avoid costly computer repairs due to hardware failure. As a result you will extend life of your device and save money over time on replacement costs.

  • Keep your device well ventilated to prevent overheating due to limited air flow. Also have it serviced regularly at least once a year to clean and remove dust and fibres. This will allow air to flow freely so it isn’t restricted or blocked.
  • Use a surge proctor to protect against power surges which are most commonly caused by lightning strikes.
  • Impact damage due to a fall is one of the most common causes of hard drive failure, see this Wikipedia page for more information. For laptops use a padded hard shell case to protect against this type of mechanical damage.

A computer upgrade may not be possible in some cases, due to age of the device and availability of parts. If you are thinking of getting a new computer or laptop rather than upgrading your old one, you can trade it in. We take trade-ins on new computers and laptops, also on refurbished computers and refurbished laptops. Finally if we don’t have it in stock we can custom build computers to customer specifications and requirements.
