Answers

 
 

1. Why Should I choose your company I Can Find Someone Cheaper?

 

PCFixshop have been repairing PC's almost since their inception in 1990 they have many years of hands on experience and can very quickly identify and fix the problem permanently.  Like most industries IT is laden with so called experts who will bodge, charge and then scarper.  We never do this as we rely on our solid reputation built over many years, our word of mouth reputation is second to none see some of our recent comments.  PCFixshop can guarantee an onsite repair within two hours.  If the repair is a time consuming one, or requires specialist replacement parts (most common parts are carried to onsite jobs), a bench fix will be offered at no extra charge.  The computer will be taken back to PCFixShop head office where technician will repair the computer.  As required in most cases the computer will then be fully upgraded all www.windowsupdates.com will be applied plus all driver updates for Motherboard, Sound & Video-card components will be applied.  Common application updates for MS Office, Nero, Adobe, ITunes etc will also be applied.  If necessary anti-virus tools will be added together with necessary anti-spy and firewall solutions - (all the above extras can amount to over 500MB+ of updates) The disk will then be cleared of clutter (No User data will be lost) and then defragmented for extra performance - This extra service is 100% FREE - Your computer when returned, normally within 24 hours, will be 100% up to date and we guarantee will perform noticeably faster than previously - This is a totally unique service offered only by PCFixShop.

 
 

2. Do You Use New Parts?

 

PC Fix Shop only use UK/EU sold Branded Parts - Never grey imports.   We Do Not use seconds or second hand parts at all ever!  It would tarnish our reputation for solid reliability.

 
 

3. Do You Build Computer Systems?

 

PC Fix Shop have been building computers for over fifteen years since the days of 486's (If anyone can still remember them) We can build any computer for any requirement
see some of our current builds here at amazingly low prices for Business and Home Users.  PCFixshop are expert PC Builders.  We are an official Microsoft OEM Partner.  All our PC's come with a platinum 1 year warranty* longer on core parts.  See some of our latest builds here.  Many competitor PC builders advertise cheaper computers they are cheaper for a reason.  They use inferior cheaper unbranded, or second hand component parts.  Many do not pre-install or include Operating Systems in the price or they pre-install illegal Operating Systems.  They do not include VAT in the prices they advertise.  They do not include Monitors - Keyboards - Mice - Speakers in the prices they advertise.  They use deliberately confusing jargon to appear more competitive.  They may also over-clock Processors or Video Cards to appear as faster and therefore more expensive PC's.  Their support warranties are fake and often these companies simply disappear or stop taking your calls after you report problems.  For a fast ultra-reliable PC with an honest no quibble warranty Put PCFix top of your list when considering replacement or new computers.  Everything you need is included in the price no hidden extras - guaranteed.

17. What is Windows Vista, Windows 7 Windows 8 & Windows 10?

 

Windows 10 is the latest Operating system from Microsoft it replaced Windows 8.1 in July 2015, Windows 7 was released in November 2010 replacing Vista released  back in January 2007 and this Replaced Windows XP which has been around since 2002 see further information page here Windows 10 is the newest Microsoft Operating system.

 

 

18. Why Is Windows XP Expiring in April 2014?

 

With Windows 10 already on the market, Microsoft officially stopped providing patches and fixes for Windows XP on 8th April, 2014, It does not mean that your PC ceased to work on that day but very soon afterwards  viruses and Malware appeared on the PC which will not be fixed by Microsoft the Operating system  rapidly become unusable on the internet as has happened already with Windows 3.1/95/98/ME and Windows 2000. Windows Vista will also not be supported after 11th April 2017. Microsoft are still Supporting 3 newer operating systems 7, 8.1 & 10  get your PC upgraded today if you are running XP or Vista - Time has already run out!

 
 
19. What Operating Systems do you support?
 
PCFixShop will Happily support all current Microsoft Operating Systems including Windows Vista Windows 7 & Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. We are currently on Windows 10 at our offices.  We will still provide limited support on Vista Systems to help you migrate to Windows 7 or above - Remember Vista will expire on 11th April 2017.
 
 
20. My PC is really ancient, is it worth bringing in?
 
Sometimes, the value of the repairs may exceed the market value of your old PC.  We will not charge at all to look at a computer that is technically beyond economic repair, if you bring it to us, if you choose to repair it of course we can do it. contact us for sound impartial advice.
 
 
21. My PC won't start. I don't have any backups, have I lost my data?
 
In most cases, we can retrieve all of your precious data and write it to new disk or PC if necessary
 
 
22. What happens if you can't fix it - No Fix No Fee Right?
 

If we can't fix your problem to your satisfaction there will be absolutely no charge.   All computers however, can normally be repaired at a cost.   Sometimes PC's or Peripheral Devices however are well beyond economic repair, we will inform you that this is the case, and no charge will be made if you purchase a replacement unit, peripheral or replacement parts from us.  Remember PCFixShop sell pre-built computer units from as little as 299.00 inclusive. If we diagnose a failed part(s) and the customer decides not to go ahead with the repair, have the replacement part(s) fitted or purchase a replacement PC system or peripheral from us.  We will charge the customer for one full hour time spent. (normally 50 but may be higher for an out of area or out of hours fix).  This is fully refundable if a system or replacement parts or peripheral is purchased later, within a reasonable time-frame (up-to 12 weeks after the initial consultation). This may incur an additional fee if customer sources their own replacement part and we are asked to fit or setup. No charge at all will apply if we do not have a suitable replacement unit available or no replacement parts or peripherals can be sourced from our suppliers.  Printers are exluded from No Fix No fee as PCFixshop do not supply PC printers.  If the printer is beyond economic repair, the 1 hour charge applies.
