Bradford PC Repair, Black Dyke Mills, Queensbury – Fantastic Service – A Big Thankyou

My trusty laptop started playing up with many processes suddenly freezing and giving the message that a particular file, folder or programme was not responding. After putting up with this for some time I decided to purchase a copy of System Mechanic. I had used a previous version to good effect several years ago on another laptop.

Things suddenly improved and the computer started to function much better. After a few days things gradually became worse until it got to the point where the laptop told me that the hard drive needed repairing or replacing. Of course I thought of the former as being the cheaper option so I bought a genuine copy of Windows 8.1. I tried to install this as a repair start-up disc. It did not work.

Bradford PC Repair, Black Dyke Mills, Queensbury – My Experience of Their Services

My trusty laptop started playing up with many processes suddenly freezing and giving the message that a particular file, folder or programme was not responding. After putting up with this for some time I decided to purchase a copy of System Mechanic. I had used a previous version to good effect several years ago on another laptop.

Things suddenly improved and the computer started to function much better. After a few days things gradually became worse until it got to the point where the laptop told me that the hard drive needed repairing or replacing. Of course I thought of the former as being the cheaper option so I bought a genuine copy of Windows 8.1. I tried to install this as a repair start-up disc. It did not work.

By now the laptop was dead and nothing would work.

I took the laptop into Bradford PC Repairs located at Units 1 and 2, Black Dyke Mills, Brighouse Road, Queensbury. I spoke with Robert who asked me to call back in a couple of hours which I did. I was informed that the hard drive was defective and I needed a new one. If I purchased a cradle for the old hard drive I could retrieve some if not all of the data it held. I agreed to do that.

When I returned the following lunch time the laptop was ready, it had the copy of Windows 8.1 installed and the old hard drive had been fitted into the cradle ready for use.

It only took 24 hours for me taking in the laptop to the repair being completed and the cost of £78 was very reasonable. If I had taken it in for repair in the first place I would have saved many pounds of hard earned cash.

I took the laptop home and installed Office 10 back into it. No problems. Then my other programmes again with no problems.

My contacts had some problems in fact I had none, I use Outlook 10, so I just synchronised my phone with my laptop and all was great again.

I then connected the old hard drive to my laptop; I had to start the repair programme that came up on screen. The repair started and was taking ages as Robert said it would, so I left it running overnight. The following morning I started to copy files and folders to the new hard drive. The occasional file would not copy; I suspect that is where the old hard drive was damaged. After a couple of days, not continuous use I had managed to retrieve the vast majority of my files, folders and photos.

Now everything is very much as it was before the problems started.

I have learnt the following:

Back up your data at regular intervals, external hard drives are quite cheap and should I have a similar experience as a hard drive failing in the future, I can use the back up material on the external hard drive and save hours of work.

Take your computer for repair as soon as things go wrong, it is far cheaper than trying to do it yourself.

 

Thank you to Robert for being so efficient and not over charging for your services. I certainly recommend your business to all.
