Services Available DoctorLaptop’s June Computer Reconditioning Deal
Naythan DrLaptop logo 1 smallIs your computer is essential for your daily activities? Computers get slower with age. Even if you properly maintain and service your computer it still won’t end up like new. Over time system modifications, updates, patches, hotfixes, software changes and data being constantly relocated by defragging all make your system less stable. Re-installing Windows restores the performance as well as removing stuff you can’t get rid of manually. A Win 7 install has an expected lifespan of 5 years before a re-install is recommended, but your hardware may not last that long without help.
The average lifespan for a desktop PC built in 2012 is 4.6 years.
The average life for laptops built in 2013 was almost 3.1 years. This is down from an expected lifespan of laptops built in 2009 of 6 years.

If your computer is 3 or more years old, and you want to get another few years use from it, you should seriously consider having it reconditioned. This process includes: wipe and revitalize the hard drive (fixes bad sectors and re-magnetizes all sectors), install a fresh copy of whatever version of Windows you use (or update to Win 7 for Vista users), pixel fix for the display (laptops), internal & external cleanup, update all drivers & software and optimize the fresh system to today’s standards. Before starting I will copy off all your data, and then replace it into the fresh system.
This job takes 2 to 3 days and costs 80EUR. Deal ends 30JUN16.

Services Available- Wills

New Wills for Old – say hello on Tuesdays at the Country Farmers market Los Jardines del Trapiche
