Repair or replace your laptop or PC? That is the question. Get it fixed or ante up for a shiny, new one? When you’re under stress is not the right time to make the decision. Take a deep breath, actually take a number of deep breaths, grab a coffee and carefully go over our checklist and consider the issues before pulling the trigger.
Rely on us for straight advice – repair or replace desktop computers. Desktops are not the same as laptops. Internal parts do not cross over but thankfully, desktop parts are more uniform in their design so can be swapped over for others without having to replace a whole unit. This is what makes fixing a desktop pc a lot easier and cost effective than a laptop.
Computer parts fail. It’s just one of those things that happens in life that you cannot avoid. Whether parts are available, how expensive they are is an important part of your repair or replace laptop decision.

Sadly things do not always work as intended. Something goes wrong with a software update or Microsoft Windows has a bad day and causes something to go wrong on the computer. These issues will manifest themselves in different ways, from simple error popups to the dreaded Blue Screen of Death! We can fix these issues and in most cases there will be no data loss on the machine.
With old Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines starting to slow down, and with Windows 10 around, there is no better time to upgrade. But with an upgrade comes a new problem. Moving the data from the old machine to the new one. But this is where the problem begins. How do you get everything from the old computer to the new one, quickly and without missing anything? How do we migrate the old legacy programs to the new hardware? A little advice can avoid a lot of trouble.
