Our Computer Repairs In Belmont Can Fix Your Hard Disk
Failure of the hard disk has proven to be the most common hardware issue owners deal with. Time simply catches up with the machine and before long parts that are years old will eventually stop working. Most people don’t realise just how sensitive a hard drive is and that with one careless knock they can get scratched, compromising all of the data stored in that area. At Nerds 2 You, we recommend that all clients back up their data regularly, so that in the event of a sudden loss, files, photos and all the data that is specific and precious to you are not lost.
Key indicators that your hard disk is in danger of failing include:
• Multiple or regular crashes
• Scratches or clicking noises
• Slow performance
• A blue screen
Where any or many of the above are familiar and can be identified as specific issues you regularly encounter then the time is now to backup your disk if you already haven’t, and give Nerds 2 You a call.

Computer services are important for every company
You might think that because computer problems do not happen for you, you don’t need computer services at all. Why pay for a service that you will never use?
But every company will run into computer problems at some point in their lifetime. There will be issues that occur and you will need to get computer repairs in order to fix it. The worst part is, computer problems usually occur when you least expect them. That also means computer repairs will have a greater urgent need when you realise you do not have a company who can quickly come in and do the repairs.
You can prevent a large number of problems occurring if you have a computer services company properly looking after your systems. When a problem happens, you can have a technician over to perform computer repairs without having to search for someone to fix your computer.
Businesses of all sizes know the importance of having good IT protection, which is why they either have their own IT team or work with an IT services company who will help them do so.
Computers will run into problems, and you will need computer repairs
Even if businesses have good IT protection, that doesn’t change the fact that you still can’t remember the last time your computer had a problem. You still don’t see the need for computer services. Even if a problem did pop up, you would be able to take care of it yourself.
For some computer problems, this is true. You can backup files in an external hard drive or run the occasional anti-virus scan to get rid of a pesky computer virus.
But other computer problems are not that easy to address. An ageing or damaged hard drive, for example, is not something you want an amateur to fix. There is too much at stake. You need a computer professional to come in and repair your hard drive. In the worst case scenario, you have to salvage what data you can and move it to another drive.
If a virus has hidden itself in your computer and is slowing it down, it might not be as simple as running an anti-virus program. You may have to restore a previous backup on your computer, and in rare cases reset your computer back to factory settings.
You can’t see into the future, and you might not know what IT or computer problems you run into then. Computer repairs will be necessary, and it is better to be prepared than be caught unaware.
Virus and malware removal
One of the most annoying problems you could face with your computer is if it becomes infected by a virus, especially one of those ransomware programs that locks your computer up if you don’t pay a hefty ransom before the deadline expires. By the way, it is never worth it to pay the ransom, and you should avoid doing that.
Malware is any kind of software that causes your computer to develop undesirable behaviour. This includes viruses but is not limited to them. The undesirable behaviour may be readily evident, or it may be quite sneaky. You may expect this kind of software to be created only by criminals, but even some legitimate store-bought software titles have been found to contain malware features.
Some versions of certain Adobe software, for example, were found to have a secret phone home feature included. Just having such a feature does not, by itself, put the software in the category of malware.
What does tip it in that direction is that the feature was hidden, not something the user would be likely to consent to, attempted to conceal the destination of the data packet, and that the destination was a receiver that most people would not be happy to share their information with. The worst part is that Adobe may not have even included the feature on purpose. It all depends who you believe. Nor is Adobe the only closed source software developer that has included features that are common features of spyware and malware applications. There’s actually a long list of them.
The difference between ordinary malware and legitimate software that includes features that make it behave as malware is that the legitimate software probably is being used for things you want to keep it for. In that case you don’t want to remove the software entirely, just remove or block the features that are undesirable.
Nerds2You can help you get your system running cleanly, without any undesirable activity going on in the background. It’s just one of our many services, but one that is constantly in demand.
Computers getting viruses is not unusual
Even if you do everything as you’re supposed to, newer viruses have ways of infiltrating your computer. It’s not a sign of negligence to have to deal with a virus.
Computer services done well gets rid of a virus effectively
It’s more than running anti-virus software and quarantining a virus. You want to make sure that your computer is completely virus free. If you’re not sure how to make sure a virus is truly gone, get an IT professional to take a look.
Computer repairs are not a good idea for getting rid of viruses
You can’t fix hardware and expect the computer to be free from viruses. You need to go into your computer system and fix the problem from there.
Data recovery and file recovery
If you have important files that get corrupted or deleted by accident before you have chance to make a backup copy of them, there is a possibility of getting those files back if you act quickly enough.
File recovery is only recommended for situations where the data is essential. It usually isn’t cheap, and it can be a destructive process. The files you’re recovering have to be worth it.
The most important thing in a file recovery scenario is that you want to be sure there is no additional disk I/O activity once the problem is discovered. This will prevent the physical area of the disk from being overwritten with new data.
If the files were stored on removable media such as an SD card, USB flash drive, or external hard drive, this is the best situation. You can simply remove the storage media and continue using your computer as you normally would.
When the files were stored on an internal hard drive, it’s a really different situation, especially if that hard drive is the same one the operating system is located on. In this case, it may be best to perform an emergency shutdown and cease all use of the computer until the files have been recovered.
The easiest way to perform an emergency shutdown on most Windows systems is to hold in the power switch for six seconds.
You should always have backups of your computer files
It is easy to say that you are prepared in the event you lose your files, but you might be thinking about retrieving a single Word document from an external hard drive. When something vital to your computer’s operation is compromised, that is when you realise the importance of having your computer’s files backed up.
A good computer services company will do regular backups for you
You know you are with a good computer services company when they perform regular backups of your files. That way you can always restore a previous backup and not worry too much about losing anything vital.
System builds and upgrades
Not all of our services in Belmont are focused on computer repairs. We also provide many other IT services. We help our clients get better value when they buy new computers or upgrade their existing systems.
Our custom built systems give you better value than brand name computers because we build only using quality components. Retail brand name computers can never really compete for value with a custom built system because the manufacturers have too many costs to recover, preventing them from providing true value. They usually need to make compromises somewhere, and that most often is in the quality of the components.
Buying your computer from Nerds2You means you get a reliable computer that will give superior performance compared to a store-bought computer for the same (or less) cost.
Always think about why you need a computer
It might be obvious that you need a computer for work, but what do you need that computer to do? It is nice to say you have the latest and greatest computer parts installed, but was it really necessary?
Get your IT services company to look at your requirements and have them explain to you why they are choosing certain computers over others.
There will be times where your computer will run into issues with its hardware. You will also run into the occasional software problem. Neither of which you know how to resolve on your own.
In those cases, you are going to need a computer services company to come over and take a look. Trying to repair the problem yourself seems like an option, but you could end up causing more harm than good. Leave the repairs to experts like Nerds2You.
