Complete Office Setup

One of our recent clients ran a business with a dedicated retail office space but needed a complete setup for a office space at home. We quoted, configured, ordered and setup the entire home office setup without the user having to do any work. We can cover the whole process from start to finish with as little or as much effort on the business owners part as they want. For this customer we setup a Dell Micro PC with SSD hard drive, large Dell monitor, Epson business class inkjet printer, Microsoft Wireless Mouse and Keyboard and Adobe DC Pro.

Whether you have 1 or 10+ employees we can provide your entire business with the technology it needs to get the job done in the most efficient manner possible and without you having to manage your own IT needs. Along with procurement and setup of systems we can also setup networks: both wired and wireless, crucial backups and pre-preemptive monitoring of all systems to ensure the smooth operation of your business and resolve issues prior to them becoming an emergency.

If you know you have a need for any kind of technology in your company but are not sure what to do or don’t have the time to shop 10 stores and 1000’s of possible devices, then please give us a call and we can take care of your business’s IT needs from start to finish.

 

 

 

Custom PC power supply replacement
By Asheville Computer Company / DesktopRecent Work / / 0 Comments

This older custom PC was reported as not booting after thunderstorms rolled through the area.  It had been hard to turn on for several days prior often taking several times before it would boot all the way up and into Windows.

Eventually it would not boot at all due to a failed power supply.  We were able to replace the power supply with a much higher quality version with a much larger fan that could better handle the heat generated by this older PC build.

As we always do when we get a computer in the shop, we opened the case and cleaned it up thoroughly inside and out.  There was several years old dust and built up on all the fans, heat sinks and surfaces inside.  This kept the computer from cooling correctly and may have let the the failure of the power supply.

If you have a computer with issues starting or not starting at all it may be due to a bad power supply.  Don’t let a bad power supply cause further damage to your computer and possibly cause a loss of data and important files.

Call us today to setup a time to have your computer cleaned and checked out.

HP All in One SSD Upgrade

This HP was several years old and the user reported that it had become sluggish and was waiting several minutes to boot and to open files.  Once a couple of programs were open the computer would slow to a crawl and become a pain to use.

We replaced the old standard hard drive with a new solid state hard drive.  This computer used to take over 4 minutes to boot and be ready to use.  With the new drive it boots in less than 30 seconds and it ready to go.

We can breath new life into computers that are a couple of years old by replacing the traditional spinning hard drive with a new still SSD hard drive.  These days the slowest part of many computers is the old hard drive.

If you have a computer, either PC or Mac, that is only a few years old but is slowing down and having issues contact us today to see if we can upgrade your hard drive and move all your data to a new solid state hard drive.

In most cases we are able to clone the existing hard drive to the new SSD drive and the only difference you will notice is the incredible speed.

We offer SSD hard drive upgrades in Arden, Fletcher, Asheville, Hendersonville and the surrounding areas.

DUSTY PC CLEANUP
By Asheville Computer Company / DesktopRecent Work / / 0 Comments

Dusty PC Cleanup

This computer was running slow and seemed to be overheating causing slow downs, blue screens and random reboots making it unusable most of the time.

The first step of any computer repair we perform is to clean the computer inside and out.  This involves taking off all the covers and cleaning thoroughly.  Most desktop computers have 3 or more fans inside from the case fans, cpu fans and power supply fans.  Some higher end computers have multiple case fans and large fans on the dedicated graphics card.

If these fans and heat sinks get clogged with dust and debris they can’t do their job and the computer will overheat causing damage and shortening the life of all the components inside.

This computer was cleaned up and runs cooler and quieter than ever. It should have a lot longer life span now that it can’t breathe easier.

If it’s been years since your computer hardware or software has been cleaned up contact us today to setup an appointment.  Service now could add years to the life of your computer.

We offer computer clean-up service in Arden, Fletcher, Asheville, Hendersonville and the surrounding areas.

Dell Studio Power Supply Replacement

This Dell Studio desktop would no longer power on after storms in the area caused a power outage.  This is a common issue with older power supplies.  If they are old and damaged from years of excess heat and clogged fans they can fail when power is lost unexpectedly or there is a power surge.

We replaced the power supply with brand new and more robust model.  The new power supply has a larger fan and better components to ensure it will last a long time and keep the computer up and running with no issues.

This was an older Pentium 4 XP system that a user wanted to keep going but was having issues powering on consistently and would constantly overheat and shut down.

We replaced the power supply, the rear exhaust fan and a DVD drive that hasn’t worked in years.  We were able to bring the running temperatures down by about 30 degrees and resolved any stability issues as a result.

Dirty Dell Optiplex Cleanup

We completely cleaned this dirty Dell Optiplex inside and out to let the fans cool efficiently and for the desktop work better and to not overheat.  A desktop computer will usually have 3+ fans inside constantly bringing in dirt and debris to clog up the fan itself and any vents used to cool the computer.

If it’s been a while since your computer was cleaned give us a call so that we can ensure it working as efficiently and reliably as possible.

This customer’s iMac was reported as running slow, over heating, and the fans were very loud.  We opened it up and discovered that it was very clogged with dust and debris causing it to get very hot and run slowly.  We cleaned the boards and fans and upgraded the hard drive to an SSD (solid state drive) to reduce the heat even further and give a huge speed boost.

If you have an older Mac that doesn’t seem to be running as well as it should then please contact us so we can take a look and let you know your options.
