Service and System Upgrades

Slow laptops are usually down to the Windows system being clogged up with unwanted files which pile up over time. We can give your laptop a full service which will include cleaning the cooling fan and applying a fresh layer of cooling compound to the CPU. We can normally do this for a set fee.

How about a Windows upgrage?

These days, like it or not, Windows 10 or the latest Windows 11 are the only Windows systems you should be using. Introduced in 2015, Windows 10 was, at first, a nightmare to use. We resisted using it on our systems until we had to. This was a few years ago and now we will not install anything else on new systems and then upgrade to Windows 11 when available for the laptop model in question.

Actually, Microsoft no longer support Windows 7 or 8 and Windows 10 will be unsupported from 2025.

 

So now is the best time to upgrade your Windows 8 or 10 system to the very latest Windows 10 or Windows 11 system.

How much for Windows 10 then I hear you ask?

Well, actually it’s free, yes, free at the moment as long as you have a laptop with an activated Windows 8 system on it, we can upgrade you for free. Well, you will need to pay us for doing it naturally. Then once you have Windows 10 it might be possible, depending on your laptop model, to get the latest Windows 11 but please understand that older laptops, more than 5 or 6 years old, are probobly not going to be supported.

You can do it yourself if you have the time but to be honest it’s not that easy. You need all sorts of extra drivers from your manufacturers online support centre plus all the additional Windows updates, repeated restarting etc. etc.

If you have an old Windows 7 laptop, and the coal fire is still heating up the steam to make it work, then it might be possible to upgrade it to Windows 10 but this is not free. You will need to purchase a licence,  either from us or Microsoft, we are much cheaper, to get it running but to be honest, why not treat yourself to one of our nice refurbished and upgraded machines. Quality used laptops normally in stock at a great price.
