Hardware

We Offer Computer Hardware Repair Services

Software programs and applications may cause a computer to stop working or operate at a less than optimal level. A 1CS Technician can determine if an issue is related to hardware or software and if either require repair.

Hardware can become broken for obvious reasons but sometimes for not so obvious reasons.

Short of seeing physical damages to the exterior of the hardware, it may be difficult to detect hardware related damages. Hardware may be damaged internally where it is hard to see.

Hardware is not necessarily broken just because it sustained physical damages. Damages would need to affect one or more critical operations and result in the device no longer working or working with a reduced level of performance.

What is software?

Computer Software refers to programs, applications and operating system utilized by a computer or server. Whereas computer hardware refers to physical components and equipment such as a motherboard, hard drive, monitor or keyboard.

Common forms of software include:

Windows or MAC OS
Microsoft Word or Excel
Office 365 or Gmail
Adobe Reader or Illustrator
Anti-virus (Norton, ESET, AVG)
Quickbooks or Sage
Printer or scanner drivers
Network/router applications

Does my software need repair?

Software would need repair if it is not functioning at an acceptable level.

If a particluar program or application does not perform well, it may be a matter of adjusting the settings.

If software was working correctly and no longer is, it could be due to the introduction of new software which is affecting the settings of the existing software.

Sometimes an update to software including an operating system or browser is overdue and required to ensure functionality.

If your software uses the internet, a disruption in internet service may stop at least some aspect of the software from working until the internet reconnects.

There are different reasons why software programs stop working, or function poorly. Sometimes the problem is not readily understood and requires investigation.

What do I do when software is not working?

If a program or application was working but no longer is and the computer is otherwise working fine, please consider the following:

(1) Has the computer been rebooted?

(2) Are there any available software updates waiting to be installed?

(3) Does the program require the internet and if so, is the internet working?

(4) Has new software been introduced to the computer?

If asking the above questions does not lead to a solution, contact us for computer repair services.
