Stonyfell onsite computer support : Slow ADSL and Outlook 2010 problems

I’m out in the eastern suburbs today helping a nice lady from Stonyfell with her laptop and iphone. The laptop was running very slow and was reporting around 0.5mb/s for download speed in¬†speedtest.net¬†and was badly effecting Outlook 2010 being able to send and recieve emails. After a whole lot of unneeded apps were removed, the startup was tuned and her laptop power plan was set to maximum performance when plugged in – she was getting around 4mb/s for download speed which got her emails back up and running properly in Outlook.

I also mentioned to her that an SSD upgrade for the laptop would go a long way to improving the overall speed of her system and it gave her something to consider if she wants to get the most out of this unit vs purchasing a brand new laptop. Another happy customer who can get back to what she does best ūüôā

best regards,

Seacliff Onsite Computer Support: Outlook 2010 issues after Windows 10 update

Today I’m down at the always picturesque¬†Seacliff¬†beach helping out a customer who is having some issues with Outlook 2010 after a large Windows 10 update came through. The update brought in some new features but at the same time seemed to break some of the dependencies that Outlook 2010 required to run properly. As the owner of the PC didn’t have their Office 2010 installation CD handy, I had to improvise and was able to get around the problem temporarily by creating a shortcut for Outlook 2010 that made it run in safe mode. This at least allowed us to get into his email, export out his contacts and collect his email settings so I could then set him up in Mozilla¬†Thunderbird¬†instead.

Personally I find¬†Thunderbird¬†to be a much better option for managing your email at home and for professionals unless of course you absolutely have to connect to a Microsoft exchange server for your email which in that case you have no choice but to use Outlook. In all other cases though,¬†Thunderbird¬†is fast, easy to use, reliable and best of all… completely free.¬†

Aberfoyle Park School onsite computer support

Some problematic wireless access points are the focus of the day today at a school in¬†AberfoylePark. All of the students aren’t here today so it’s an ideal time to check on the roof mounted access points to make sure they are all working and giving out a good signal throughout the whole campus. A few of the access points were showing up in the wireless settings on devices but weren’t allowing staff and students to connect to the¬†internet¬†and local network resources. My first port of call for any access points in question is to remove them from the roof and attempt to power cycle them in the hopes that the old “reboot trick” we all know and love so much on our¬†PC’s¬†and laptops works here too. In most cases today, that was all that was required to fix the problem!

Adelaide City Supermarket Onsite Computer Support

Today I’m in the heart of the city helping out a fine foods supermarket with some email and¬†internet¬†issues as well as getting their CCTV recording system up and running on the owners¬†iphone¬†so he can monitor what’s happening in his business when he’s not in the store. After correcting a few issues with their email to do with¬†SSL¬†and authentication, they were back up and running and the backlog of emails being held in their their Outlook outbox disappeared. Next up was the CCTV app on the owners¬†iphone¬†which was pointing at an incorrect public¬†IP¬†address. I helped them by showing them how to discover their public address and put it in the app on his phone and also mentioned that a dynamic¬†DNS¬†solution would be ideal if they continue to have any issues down the track. Another happy customer and now on to my next one…

Cherry Gardens iPhone and PC email setup

I had a customer call me up from Cherry Gardens needing some help with some issues on their PC as well as setting up their email account on their iphone so it sync’s with thier PC while they are overseas on holidays. I backed up then cleared out their old POP3 email setup and go them setup on IMAP on both their desktop and iphone so that whenever they read, delete or move any emails on either device it reflects exactly the same on the other. Simple and brilliant.

Blackwood All in One HP Computer Support

I’m down in the always green little corner of Blackwood today helping an elderly man with his 7 year old HP all in one PC. He said it was running slow and not letting him watch his favourite shows on ABC iview. After a system tuneup and some apps were removed the PC was booting up much faster and running better overall. I fixed his ABC iview problem by installing Firefox and the latest flash player plugin and he was back in business ūüôā

New Computer installed in Seaford Plumbing Business

I had the pleasure of supplying one of our Digital Insite ECO-system PC’s to a customer in Seaford to replace one of their old, slow 6 year old workhorses. Their screen, keyboard and mouse were all working fine and had been replaced only recently so they just needed a new tower with Windows 10. Going from an old worn out SATA hard disk to one of the new high speed SSD was nothing short of night and day and was a massive speed improvement in all areas.¬†

Noarlunga South Computer Support

I’m helping out a 17 year old student down at Noarlunga South today with some audio recording software on his laptop that is giving him a lot of problems when trying to install custom audio libraries. The laptop itself has plently of space on his main SSD C drive however the library just won’t install there for some reason. I taught him a trick I learnt a while back called directory junctions that allows you to create the junction on his secondary SATA D drive and then copy the data he wants to the C drive. This tricks the computer into thinking that the data is on the D drive when it’s actually on the C drive. Armed with a new trick he was very happy and his music program is working as it should completely from his high speed SSD.

Seaford Onsite Computer Repairs and Support

Today I’m down south in Seaford helping out a customer that relies on a constant internet connection that connects to a remote control session interstate which unfortunately keeps dropping out. These types of problems can be tricky to diagnose so I usually start with the obvious things first like checking cables, plug ends and seeing if any other devices on the network are also experiencing any problems. Next it’s on to testing the PC itself whether a faulty network card is the cause or even some settings in Windows such as DNS etc that may be effecting it…
