BUILD A COMPUTER

WHAT DOES BUILD A COMPUTER DO ?

Protection Services

During the course of accessing the Internet with your computer, you will come in contact with computer viruses. Computer viruses are often spread by attachments in email messages.  Most viruses are stopped before they start, however an undetected virus can corrupt or delete data on your computer, access your email program to spread itself to other computers, or erase everything on your hard disk.  Sometimes your web browser is hijacked and you find yourself being redirected to unknown websites.

What does our Protection Service do?

  • Our protection service will remove the viruses from your computer for a low fee without you having to do anything. The service is guaranteed.
  • We will install new FREE anti-virus software if necessary.
  • BAC will optimize your computer for best performance

 

 

Computer Repair

BAC allows for a 1 hour FREE diagnostic prior to a repair of your desktop or laptop computer.  Our turn-around time is usually same day to next day.  You need your computer fixed right away and we will make that happen for you whenever possible.

Commonly supported issues:

  • Computer is slow or freezes
  • Computer will not boot up
  • Cannot access Internet or email
  • Computer virus / spyware (see Protection Services)
  • Desktop / Laptop shuts down on its own
  • Hardware issues / software issues

If your computer seems to be malfunctioning — it’s slow, programs are crashing or Windows may be blue-screening. Is your computer’s hardware failing, or does it have a software problem that you can fix?

This can actually be a bit tricky to figure out. Hardware problems and software problems can lead to the same symptoms — for example, frequent blue screens of death may be caused by either software or hardware problems.

Computers slow down over time if you install too much software that runs at startup or if infected with malware. Some conclude that their computer is slowing down because it’s old. But this is incorrect.  It has a software problem that can be fixed. Hardware issues shouldn’t cause your computer to slow down. There are some exceptions to this, but most slowness is caused by software issues.

 

Upgrades

Computers are lasting longer than ever and sometimes you can upgrade to make them last even longer.  Sometimes the better solution to a computer issue might be to upgrade instead of purchasing a new computer. To get the best return on your money  an upgrade you have to spend money wisely. Certain upgrades will give you next to nothing in return for your money.  Here is list of the best upgrades along with an idea of how much the upgrade would cost.

  • SSD - SSD's offer a performance boost and it improved reliability.
    Price: $90 -$125
  • RAM - Any modern PC running a 64-bit version of Windows with 4GB or less of RAM will benefit from a bump to at least 8GB.
    Price: $75.
  • GRAPHICS CARDS - one way to give your PC extra zip for running a game is to upgrade the graphics card.  Graphics cards is one area where OEM's skimp to keep prices low.
    Price: $99-$650

Data Recovery

Hard drive failures come suddenly and without warning. You may turn on your computer and see an "Operating System not found" or "Inaccessible Boot Disk" error. Disk drives usually will last approximately 5 years before failing, however drives can fail as early as 6 months based on environmental operating conditions.

Even if your computer is still under warranty the manufacturer will not assist you in recovering data.  Data recover labs charge steep fees typically ranging from $600 to $3000 and upwards. For many small businesses, spending thousands of dollars on data recovery is simply not an option. If your hard drive has failed, there's a reasonable  chance your data can be recovered utilizing software analysis tools.  BAC has successfully recovered data for small businesses.  We can also recover accidentally deleted files from the Recycle Bin.  Not sure what happened.  Tell us what you know and we'll give you our honest appraisal as to whether the data might be recovered.
