Hallett Cove Onsite Computer Support : Slow laptop after Windows 10 update

A customer in Hallett Cove contacted me today saying his laptop was very slow and behaving strangely after a large windows 10 update had gone through. He said it took quite a long time for the update to complete and when it rebooted he wasn’t able to log in as per normal.
I found that his laptop has got stuck in a type of hibernation loop where it had gone to sleep after the update (possibly due to low battery) and wasn’t waking up properly to allow him to log in. I pulled out the battery from his laptop for 1 minute and then tried to boot up again with the battery in and was able to trigger the Windows repair menu. After a few more steps repairing his Windows startup and getting the update in question to successfully complete this time – he was back up and running.

Hallett Cove computer repairs and support : Malware removal and a PC tune-up

One of my long time customers contacted me today saying he was seeing all sorts of strange messages coming up on his PC including very “inappropriate” ads and even a spoken message from “Microsoft” telling him that he had been infected with a rootkit virus and that if he turned off his PC it would never come back on.
Thankfully he called me and I was able to remove all viruses and malware from his PC and get him back in action in no time. I also installed the awesome web browser add-on called adblock plus to remove a lot of the annoying ads you see on websites. If you’ve never tried it, you really should – I wouldn’t browse the internet without it!
Have an awesome day guys 🙂

Aberfoyle Park, Clovelly Park, Lonsdale, Torrensville, Plympton Park then Hallett Cove… All in a days work :)

Another busy day that started out at Aberfoyle Park dropping off a laptop I repaired for a family from a school then down the Clovelly Park to help a business with getting their security camera system connected to the Internet so they can access and monitor their cameras after hours and anywhere in the world.

After that it was down to a catering business in Lonsdale to set up a brand new PC for them to replace their main laptop that had died and was controlling all of their their point of sale stock and sales synchronization between their sales terminals.

Next, I was on the road again to Plympton Park to help another customer with his wireless printer and some website issues and lastly Torrensville to deliver a laptop I had upgraded with a high speed SSD and then back to the workshop to build another PC. All in a days work 🙂

Busy day in the workshop!

A parent from the school I provide computer support at gave me a laptop that was running slow and needed a good tune-up. Another customer called this morning saying their PC wasn’t booting up and was displaying hard disk errors so I’m running some disk repairs on that one. I’m also cloning another laptop with a super slow 5400rpm hard disk to a new high speed SSD while building an i3 desktop and another i5 desktop for two more customers… Phew! 🙂
