Revive Your Slow Computer with an Easy Bottleneck Blitz
Old age creeps up slowly – unless you are a computer.
Then it seems to happen overnight. One day you are logging in normally and jumping right into action, the next day booting up takes so long you not only have time to make a cup of coffee, but you could also have run out to the local café for the good stuff.
This is the stage where many people throw their hands in the air and start wishing for a new computer. Except your computer is not broken and does not need replacing, it is just…. slow.
Time-wasting, focus-losing, frustratingly slow.
Like any machine, computers have parts that wear out – particularly if they have moving parts that are in near-constant use.
The hard drive is the #1 cause of speed bottlenecks in most computers.
Traditional hard drives are made up of a stack of round magnetic platters, spinning at up to 7200rpms, while a read/write head on a mechanical arm that whizzes back and forth (a bit like a record player).
Eventually, the platters take longer to spin up, unable to reach full throttle, and the mechanical arm becomes sluggish.
Which leaves you waiting. And waiting…
SSDs Can Give Ageing Computers A New Lease on Life
The new era of hard drives is here with Solid State Drives or SSD – and they have no moving parts. Zero.
They are a lot like your USB stick that continually takes a beating but still performs perfectly.
Making a simple upgrade to SSD can knock minutes (an eternity) off boot time, as well streamlines regular computer operations with rapid fire functionality. They are:
Cool – Do not generate heat, which means other components also run more efficiently.
Durable – No moving parts to wear out.
Long-lasting – You are more likely to replace your entire system before the SSD wears out.
Lightning fast – Data is accessed instantly.
Suitable for all systems– laptop, or desktop, Mac or PC
Upgrading your tired hard drive to a super-fast SSD can be usually done within one day, depending on how much there is to copy over & how fast the existing drive lets us work.
For £95*, we will supply and install a 256GB** SSD for you, as well as clone* your existing hard drive to it (Windows, programs, and data). A full 12-month parts warranty is included.
Book your SSD upgrade today! Call us on 01423 525277 or bring your laptop to our Covid19 safe workshop!
(someone else can watch the kettle boil tomorrow)
*this is dependent on the existing drive allowing us to clone, if not, we may need to do a fresh installation of Windows & copy over what we can, this may or may not include all your data, settings & programs (may also be subject to additional costs)
** We will need to check what size drive is needed first, if a larger drive is needed, we shall advise on costs etc.
