COVID-19 Update

The past year has been challenging for us all. We have been working flat out to continue to help our customers with either remote support, or contactless drop off and pickups. At this time, our technology is even more crucial to us than ever. If you’re having problems or need help with failing I.T, we’re here to help.

As long as nobody in your household is shielding or displaying Covid-19 symptoms we are now able to offer home visits and will follow strict social distancing guidelines provided by Public Health England.

If you are having hardware issues, please call The IT Fella, our lines are open and we can talk about how we can help.

Please stay safe.

The IT Fella knows just how difficult it is to lose access to your computer for even a few hours. In most cases I can have your computer back to you same day!

Sometimes it may be necessary to take your computer for slightly longer. Usually this is just overnight and I have it back to you the next day.

In all honesty it is difficult to tell. This is partly down to the software you have installed on your computer already and other components such as Memory and Processor. But let me give you an idea of past jobs.

8-10 year old machine
Startup time to point of opening a program = 1 min 52 seconds.
Following the Upgrade = 23 Seconds.

This particular customer did still notice that when using the computer it was slower than they expected but still much quicker. This was purely down to the processor being older and slower.

2-3 Year old machine
Startup time to open a program = 1 min 26 seconds
After upgrade of SSD and Memory = 14 seconds

This customer was really pleased with the upgrade. It made such a huge improvement on what they were used to.

Absolutely. As part of the upgrade we clone your current drive to the new SSD. This means an exact copy of your current data stays on your existing drive, so in effect you have two copies. We leave the original drive in your computer when we hand it back to you, after all it’s yours with your data.
