A Whole New Build

We finished this build for a customer after his hard drive failed and he was looking to resort back to a desktop PC. After a good discussion on his requirements, we decided on a custom system. If an upgrade is what you are looking for or a custom gaming PC, call the office on 01560 428031 or pop in to speak to a member of the team.

Gaming PC Fixed for Christmas

Recently we had a customer come in with a gaming PC, the machine had ceased to turn on and he had brought it in to be diagnosed. After some testing, we traced the issue to the motherboard, which meant a replacement board. The customer decided to update his machine, replacing the motherboard, CPU and RAM. We fitted an MSI Z390 motherboard, i9 9900k processor and 32GB of 3200MHz RAM, giving…

Windows 7 Support is Ending

Support for Windows 7 is ending. ⏳⏳ The idea of upgrading all of your company’s systems to Windows 10 is daunting, we get that, but it’s a necessity.

Desktop upgrade

So, another week and another build. A client who is into music production, got in touch as his present machine was struggling with the load imposed under recording and mixing. He'd already carried out some research, so had an idea of what he was looking for and had a budget in mind. The processor he was looking at was from an older range, so we suggested a slightly newer model…

New monitor arms

We built 3 new workstations for this client recently and we were back this week to install new monitor arms. It's amazing how much desk space you can free up, especially in a double monitor set up like this. [gallery size="full" columns="2" ids="4161,4162"]

GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation – What you need to know.

The main policies that are being implemented in the GDPR Bill are: Privacy: Strengthened consent rules that will mean consent is unambiguous and easy to withdraw. The bill looks to end the reliance on opt-out tick boxes that are "largely ignored" so that users know what they are signing up for. Improved data access: Individuals will find it easier to access information that organisations hold about them at no charge. Data portability: New rules…

Google chrome scare

Tech support scammers are attempting to scare Google Chrome users into paying for their services. They‘ve found a way to “freeze” the web browser, so you won’t be able to close it. A popup message then appears on-screen, prompting you to call a phone number so “engineers can walk you through the removal process”. The aim of the campaign is to cause panic and try to trick victims into paying…
