Fix Slow Computer

Slow Computer Repair Raleigh, NC

We do get a number of calls for computers that don’t really have any big issues like a virus popping up every 15 seconds or a blue screen issue, but just a general slow computer problem. Buckeye PC is just the company to call to work on getting that fixed. Through general clean up and optimization we can get most computers running quite a bit faster. You aren’t just stuck with it when your computer slows down,

We’re great with slow computers. We can make machines come back to life in many cases. A lot of startup programs get popped in there without users realizing it, meaning your computer is having to work harder from the moment you turn it on, and that translates to slow computer performance. Helpful (and we use the term loosely) toolbars insert themselves into your web browser – and then there are some truly nasty things that can happen to your PC – like viruses… BUT, in most cases, we can get your machine running nearly like it was out of the factory! We do basically the same things as mentioned above when it comes to fixing slow PC issues, but we focus a little bit more obviously on nice general system improvements more than fixing a blue screen or something along those lines. Many times a general speedup/cleanup on your desktop or laptop can be done in about an hour. Their are always exceptions, but we’re always open to at least taking a look to see IF we can speed up your computer at all for you!

When it’s time to NOT fix that slow PC

We’ll be honest with you – if you’ve got a machine that was built before 2010 or so – you likely WILL have a machine that’s NEVER going to be that fast in comparison to something newer – even after work is done to try and speed it up. AND it will take us a while to DO the cleanup on it as these PCs are generally much slower than what is currently on the market, so navigating around will just take us a lot longer. Home computer cleanups that we can do in under an hour on a current machine can take 2-3 times as long on an old unit. We’ll be the FIRST to suggest to you that it might be time to get a new desktop or laptop and we can even tell you where to find the best prices. We know if we treat you like we would like to be treated, you’ll call us one day when you DO actually need our Raleigh Triangle Computers Services!

On some of these older PCs, servicing it will cost as much or MORE than buying a new one. No kidding. And even when we’re done, you’re still going to have a 5 (or more) year old computer that’s going to be a lot slower than your neighbor’s just due to the old hardware that’s inside it. If it’s not that old, many times, we CAN upgrade your PC to give it a little more life. Unlike cars, usually the newer the PC, the cheaper it is to service as we can work it SO much faster. When we have to sit there watching the old anchor grinding away for 2 hours just trying to install Microsoft Office, it pains us as much as it hurts you having to pay the bill for those two hours of watching your computers run. We’d rather send you to the store with a shopping list than waste your time and money trying to repair a computer that just shouldn’t have any money spent on it! Generally speaking after you’ve had it for a while, upgrading your computer is going to be more than worth it.

Transfer your data to a new machine instead

The good news is that we can always transfer the data from your old running (but slow) machine to your new FAST computer with a simple onsite repairs service call. Sometimes if you have a whole lot of data, we may want to work on it overnight for the sake of safety. In most cases, though, we can do it for you on the spot! And it will take a whole lot less time than trying to resurrect that old vintage Windows 98 laptop – and it will run a WHOLE lot better for you. So if your computer is running slow and you need a speed up, contact us now!
