Solutions and Repair for; Windows, Linux and Macintosh computer problems

Computer Maintenance & Servicing

To keep your computer running well I recommend you have it checked every 12 months. I can check that your security protection software is updated and that the latest Windows or Mac OS X is installed, I will also update any hardware drivers. Hardware manufacturer's do release updates from time to time, and these can be important for stability and performance.  I also recommend that backups are done weekly or monthly depending on your individual needs.

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:



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 viruss; 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.

Let's Begin!

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, viruss, 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.


Outline & History:

After 30 years of Computer Support Services, I can state that Computers have become a very Complex and Integral part of our daily life. A single technical disaster can bring a business to chaos and ruin. Think carefully, plan regular backups, and do not become caught by poor sales promotions or lack of communication. Be reassured that we care about your after-sales service. Call or email Peter Bowey (send email) - my service is your 24-hour 'backup' in a disaster recovery. I have a wide range of disaster recovery software, repair tools and hard-won computer technical experience.

Peter has been available every time I have needed him at very short notice. He has fixed my problems or pointed me in the right direction in every instance. His fees are modest and his communication is in a language that layman understand.

Took my ageing PC to Peter when it wouldn't boot after being moved. He quickly diagnosed the problem, ordered the parts and I had it back working perfectly the next day. Excellent service!

We have been using Peter Bowey Computer Solutions for over 10 years, in that time we have found Peter to be extremely knowledgeable, helpful and always very friendly. We would highly recommend him to anyone. Where we are situated is not that accessible but Peter has never failed to assist and attend our premises when we have needed help, we would not use anyone else. Mike and Ruth

I have been dealing with Peter for around three and a half years. I am a regular customer bringing a variety of technology needs, some of which are quite challenging. To date nothing has been too difficult for Peter. He has been able to calmly resolve anything that we have put in front of him. I and others that I know of that bring their problems to him have dubbed the 'computer whisperer!' I am very appreciative of his knowledge and patience and recommend without hesitation.

Peter lends a sympathetic ear and then fixes the problem efficiently and in a timely manner. He has recovered frozen drives, offered good (and cost effective) advice and set up several new desk top, and laptops, for me over 20 years. I prefer to shop locally and Peter always gives good service and advice on the best purchase options for my needs.

I heard of Peter when I first came to live in Victor Harbor. I've been so impressed with the service and expertise that he has offered over the past six years. I am confident that whenever I have taken my computer for repairs he does an excellent job. I have had opportunity to confidently recommend him to computer students that I have taught. He's trust worthy and very tech savvy.
