A sudden crash of your PC or Mac never happens at a good time. Let’s face it, we need our computers and laptops and shiny devices all the time, and almost – ALMOST – depend on them as much as running water and electricity. We’ve become completely dependent on them and why not? They make our lives immeasurably better, more fulfilling, informed and connected to a world that our ancestors could only dream of.
So, when things go belly up what do you do? Take a hammer to it? Try your hand at DIY and risk electric shock? Or look for computer services Clarkson has available to it? In some instances all of the above. But seriously, you will most likely search for a quick fix nearby.
However, while local shops can offer some services, what if you need a more experienced pair of hands? Wouldn’t it be great if there were a mobile computer repairs service that could drop around to your house with over a decade of experience in their tech toolkit? Aren’t you lucky then that we, “Nerds 2 You”, exist?
Thank our owner and company director Jamie Wright who established the business in 2013. His team of Nerds, or specialist IT technicians, are available 7 days a week and are ready to come to your home or place of business to diagnose any problem little or large and facilitate a fast turn-around that will leave you satisfied and better informed as to how you can from that point on get the best out of your device. Not only that but we strive to deliver an efficient, professional service that puts the IT jargon aside and focuses on saving you time, travel and money.

Signs That You Need Computer Repairs
But what if nothing seems to be wrong with your system? Is it possible that something may be lying dormant? The answer is yes and there are a few key things to keep an eye on.
Computers are not designed to last forever and so as time catches up with them they will inevitably begin to give problems. The hard disk will regularly throw issues up for its owners to deal with. This is because it is a sensitive piece of equipment that if compromised could cost you some or all of your data, which might include those precious photos you like to look at from time to time.
Before we tell you the things you need to look out for, first things first, make sure you back up your data at least once a week! That means using free cloud services, an external hard drive or the inbuilt time machine if you’re a Mac user.
Here are some warning signs that may mean it’s time to seek out the best computer repairs Clarkson has available to it, so that hard disk failure can be prevented:
• Crashes happen regularly
• You hear scratching or clicking noises
• System performance is slow or sluggish
• A blue screen appears – disaster zone stuff!
Computer services and computer repairs in Clarkson
If you live in or near the Perth suburb of Clarkson and you need help with your computer, the most efficient and reliable way is to call Nerds2You. What makes us different from other Clarkson computer repairs services is that we can take care of most things directly at your home or office, so there’s no need to pack up your computer and drive across town with it.
It means you get your computer fixed quickly, with minimal downtime. You will not lose too much in terms of productivity, and you can get back to work sooner. Nerds2You is the best service for computer repairs because we really do send nerds to you.
Virus and malware removal
If you discover or suspect that your computer is infected with a virus, you should immediately stop using it. Don’t even take the time to download an antivirus software application, because it’s already too late at this point.
If you download an antivirus application, there is a really high chance that the antivirus application itself will be infected by the virus. It can’t really fix viruses if it has a virus, and if you continue to use the computer, the problem will get worse and you also risk spreading the virus to other computers and devices.
We can fix your computer quickly by applying an instant remedy, and our virus removal kit makes short work of rectifying every problem on the machine. This kind of problem needs to be fixed right at the start, before the computer even boots. Viruses are very bad news, make no mistake about that, but they’re not going to put you out of action for long when you have us to help.
More IT services, including system builds and upgrades
Make sure you’re getting better value for what you spend on computer systems with help from Nerds2You. We can build new systems that will out-perform brand name systems at the same price point. This works because we use quality components and configure them correctly for optimal performance.
We can also upgrade your old system to get it working better, supply and/or install new peripherals for you, make recommendations, and set up or troubleshoot your network.
Anything related to IT, in fact, is something we can help with.
Getting new computer software
Whether it is finding out which computer software would be right for your system is an important part of IT services. You should be choosing the software that is not only compatible with your computer, but suited to your needs as well.
Learning what computer services you require for your business
It’s not just about installing the best and the latest computer software, but seeing what works within your budget and what requirements your business needs.
Explaining what our computer services entail
Saying that we do computer services is one thing, but being able to explain what these services are is another thing. You want to work with a computer services company that does its best to take out the industry jargon and tell you what we can do for you.
Being available for computer repairs in person, and not just doing remote computer services
While there is a lot we can do for you remotely, it is still important for you to know that we will come down to your office in Clarkson and do computer repairs in person. You should know that we are willing to come down and help you, while also doing our best to ensure everything is working fine.
Data recovery services
If you have really important data that has been corrupted or accidentally deleted before you could make a backup copy of it, it may be possible to recover it for you. It’s very important to act immediately in this situation.
If the lost data is stored on some kind of removable or external storage media, disconnect it from the computer, and set the storage media or external hard drive aside. If the lost data is stored on an internal hard drive or SSD, then you will need to make a quick evaluation of how important the data is to you.
If it is not more important than the other contents of the hard drive, then perform a normal system shutdown, closing all open files and using the standard method for shutting down the system. If recovering the lost data is maximum priority, and the hard drive is not encrypted, then performing an emergency shutdown will prevent any disk I/O activity that would risk potentially overwriting your important data.
Be aware that an emergency shutdown can cause you to lose other (hopefully less important) data, usually limited to any unsaved changes in open files.
On most Windows systems, an emergency shutdown is performed by holding in the power button for 6 seconds.
Even after all this, there is no absolute certainty of recovering the files, so these methods should only be used in a dire emergency where rescuing the data is a maximum priority.
How to cut down the need for computer repair
We love fixing computers, but you probably don’t love having to pay to get your computer fixed. You can avoid that need by making sure you have a good system in the first place (see the section above about system builds and upgrades from Nerds2You). The main reason why most store-bought computers break down is because they’re not built from quality components.
Most brand name computer manufacturers have a goal to create maximum profit for their shareholders by building computers as cheaply as possible and selling them for much more than they are worth. There’s nothing sinister about that, it’s just the nature of big corporations.
Building a system that performs well enough to get good reviews while spending the least amount possible is a difficult balancing act. The manufacturer must attempt to build a system that won’t fail until the warranty has expired. That’s why we believe it’s better to avoid buying computers “off the shelf” and especially why brand name computers should be avoided as much as possible.
When a system is built from parts selected for their high quality and durability, you will get a better system for what you are spending. The big computer manufacturers need to recover their costs for marketing, shipping, retailer margins, and all kinds of other things, so you will never get the best value by buying from them.
When you choose Nerds2You to build a system for you, it is an investment in reliability and value. Using the best quality components optimally configured means you will be much less likely to need repair services from us.
Remember to call Nerds2You for all computer services in Clarkson
Whatever you need, we will take care of it, and we’ll do it fast. We are experts in computer repair and system building, so your system is in good hands with us.
