Computer Repair and Hard Disk Recovery. Hardware and Solutions:
6 Days per Week - Solutions and Repair for; Windows, Linux and Macintosh computer problems.
Located in Victor Harbor, Peter Bowey provides a suite of computer services. Most of my work is in computer repairs and data migration / recovery, and over the years I have developed some enormous skills base in this area - as well as a methodology of the right way to do computer repairs. I work with major computer brands including HP, Dell, Acer, Compaq and Apple as well as operating systems ranging from Mac OSX, Windows and Linux. Laptops, iPads, iPhones and desktops.
I am fast, efficient and most importantly accurate. I will take good care of your computer. If your computer can be repaired economically, I will repair it. I will bill at a reasonable rate, and only for the hours I work and the parts required.
Once I have a diagnosis, I will give you a list of repair options and pricing quotes. If I follow through with a repair, the initial bench and/or diagnostic fee is waived.
What services I offer:
Virus - Malware Removal
I remove ALL viruses like trojans, rootkits, browser hijacks, fake security software, popups etc. to get your system back to the way it was.
Computer running slow? Junk files, registry issues, unwanted files and trojans build over time. I will optimize it for peak performance.
Taking forever to boot, open web pages, that dreaded spinning circle? I can help get your PC back running smooth and fast.
Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)
Getting that dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)? I will run diagnostics, get to the root of the issue and repair it.
Apple Mac Repair
Mac acting up? I have repaired hundreds of Apple based computers and can fix yours too while you watch (remote) or just relax while I service it in my workshop.
If you need a full Computer Restoration & Recovery (if other recovery options fail)
I will recover your data and restore your computer to its original condition, or better! The typical sluggish computer nearly always has some combination of spyware, ad-ware, spam-bots, Trojans and viruses; all collectively known as malware. When a computer becomes slows, intermittently crashes, shuts down by itself, will not boot or shut down correctly, cannot access the Internet, or has warning appearing, it is time for a good system clean-up.
Now it is Time to Back-up Your Computer
To start off, I copy all of your important data (Documents, Photos, Videos) to an external hard drive, so you do not lose any of your personal information or crucial business data. This will all be migrated back onto your computer once I have scrubbed it clean with a new install of your licensed Operating System. Now I am ready to get your computer back to the way it was when you first bought it!
Determine Hardware and the required Device Drivers
Your service tag or model number will confirm what is compatible with your OS for quality control purposes. I can also identify the drivers needed to make your computer communicate with other necessary peripherals (printer, router, wireless mouse/keyboard).
Format the Hard Drive!
This is when I reinstall your OS, thus removing all previous registry errors, viruses, and any other threats that may have been present. Once the OS has been installed, activated, and verified, I will install the compatible drivers to allow your computer to communicate with other essential devices (like USB, Video, LAN, WiFi, Blue-tooth, etc).
Migrating Your Data Back!
I now transfer all the documents, photos and other important files saved from the external drive, back onto your computer along with any programs you need and have discs for. As a final test, I check the functionality and speed of your computer, making sure that it’s in good shape!
Now your computer is as good as when new and is performing correctly (and most certainly faster)! You may need re-establish your WiFi security password for the first time use. Normally, I can recover email passwords, but in the worst case I will ask you for them - or help you create a recovery event for lost passwords.
