Desktop Power Supply Replacement

A customer’s business desktop would not power back on after a storm caused a power loss.  Older desktop computers with clogged and worn out power supplies can fail when you least expect it or when they are most needed.

This power supply had a small clogged fan that could have caused excess heat resulting in more damage to other system components such as the hard drive, motherboard, ram, etc.  We replaced it with a brand new, efficient power supply with a much larger, quieter fan.

We can clean out your system inside and out and get the power supply replaced with a brand new, high quality version with a much larger to fan to ensure that the computer stays cool and working when you need it most.  We can also recommend upgrades or replacements needed to ensure the long and trouble free operation of your home or business computer.

Very Dirty PC Clean-up

 

 

This PC hadn’t been cleaned for quite a while and it’s performance was suffering for it.  I cleaned out the inside and allowed fresh, clean, cool air to flow through, cooling the PC and allowing it to function better for years to come.  This computer’s software was as dirty as the inside.  The Dell computer was bogged down and taken over with spyware and viruses.  I removed all signs of them and updated all programs to prevent it in the future
