Is your computer not booting up?

There are a number of causes of what is known as a "boot loop". Most often it is caused by a software malfunction which can be repaired without the need to buy any replacement parts for your machine even if the machine has failed to fix itself. On a rare occasion this problem can be caused by a physical fault in your storage drive which can be replaced at cost for those having Auranos carry out the labour on the machine repair.

Is your screen broken?

If you live within the locality of Cumbernauld in Scotland, we can make arrangements for you to bring your machine round for a repair or for your machine to be collected from where you live. To arrange for a repair use one of the methods described in the Contact Page.

Are you experiencing some other issue?

Stephen is dedicated to fixing all kinds of computer related problems and will endeavour to have your machine fixed expediently, calling you to confirm you are okay with the any additional costs in replacement parts.

Obviously you do not want to pay such a significant amount toward repairing your existing computer when the price of a new machine is within arms reach of the cost of repair. In some cases you will be advised that the repair you need would not be economically repairable. In such circumstances we can restore your data onto a new machine and even cannibalise the parts of your old machine in order to enhance any new computer you buy. We can also advise you on the best machines on the market to meet your needs and even supply these to you, sometimes at discount rates.

There are an infinte number of ways a machine can be broken but if you want some idea of what the costs will be, you can consult the rough guide to apraise yourself with the issues that will be involved. In some circumstances, the price of replacement parts will be added to your bill and its always a good idea to check out the going rate for a part you will need by consulting ebay or some similar service. Remember, the one year warranty on repairs is based on replacement parts being new and from reputable suppliers. We can use refurbished parts if this is what you want or that is all that is available, but the warranty we provide on these parts extends only so far as the supplier is willing to offer any warranty on those parts. As a general rule our labour costs are £50 (including VAT) but people local to South Carbrain area of Cumbernauld receive a discounted price of only £30.


Is your computer too slow?

Some people choose to buy a new computer when their current machine is unable to cope with the latest demands of their updated operating system and the various softwares they rely on for their everyday computer usage. In the vast bulk of these cases, it is often more economic to just upgrade the machine which you currently use.

New advances in storage technology allow that storage speed of older computers can be dramatically increased leading to boot up times of seconds rather than minutes. We can also install more RAM and faster RAM into laptops increasing the overall performance of the machine.

Even the oldest machines can be given incredible perfomance enhancements by replacing the operating system with a linux distribution fully capable of running all your windows software.
