Network Installation

Computing Solutions offer computer and networking solutions for home and business. We supply, install and maintain your network making sure everything runs smoothly and we will ensure that your company is in safe hands. We provide backup systems, client server network setups, peer to peer networking and custom infrastructures.

Even the best hardware and software is of little value if it is not installed and configured properly. Knowing the correct settings for today's computer networks and applications is simply a matter of experience. Computing Solutions has years of experience so you can rest assured that your network will be more than just "working" but configured for peak performance and maximum security.

Server Administration

At the most basic level, a server is a technology solution that "serves" files, data, print, fax resources and more to multiple computers.

Advanced server solutions, such as Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2, also enable you to manage user accounts and passwords, grant or restrict access to shared resources, automatically back up your data, and access business information remotely.

Offsite Data Backup

We operate an off-site storage facility for the user's data. At the facility, an account is maintained for each user. Each account is protected by a password know only to the user!

The electronic vault system is set up so that at preset time, usually late at night the clients computer automatically prepares its data for backup, it determines which files have been modified since the last backup, compresses them, encrypts them for security. When the data is ready the computer uses its modem or internet connection to contact our servers and transmit the data.

Our Servers verify and store the data. The next morning the backup is transferred to extrenal storage. You can rest assured that your data is safe because it is stored off-site.

Repairs & Upgrades

One of the most common repairs is to replace the PSU (a transformer inside the computer which reduces the voltage from 240V to 5V and 12V. This is easy to replace but at the point when it fails, it can allow higher voltages to reach other components, occasionally the motherboard and CPU would also require replacement. We can provide these component replacements and upgrades including motherboards, CPUs, hard drives, CD and DVD drives, graphics cards, memory, monitors, keyboards and mice.

One reason for Windows XP and Vista systems running slowly is due to windows updates in 2010 requiring an upgrade to at least 1GB of RAM (2GB for Vista). More recent updates have even caused systems to become unstable or crash.

We commonly replace broken DC power sockets, keyboards, keypads, hard drives, CD & DVD drives and cracked screens in laptops.

Diagnostics & Troubleshooting

Let's face it, computers have a way of messing themselves up just when you need them most. At Computing Solutions we do our best to carry out repairs as soon as possible.

Often problems like this blue screen can be solved without reloading the system and if that is required we can secure data such as letters, photos, email and address lists.

Slow running and problematic computers can be diagnosed and software cleaned up or faulty components replaced.

Wifi Setup, Internet and Email

We can supply and setup cabled or wireless routers and network cards so you can access the internet in your home or office from more than one computer, share files and printers between computers.

We can setup and troubleshoot dial-up connections, broadband and email accounts.

Remote access via VPN can be setup so you can access your work computers from remote locations, securely and safely.

Virus / Spyware Removal

Is your computer running slowly or are you concerned over internet security? Some antivirus software is not as effective as you would think.

Antivirus software is designed to stop infections entering your computer, not to remove them once they are in. We have a range of utilities to scan for and remove visuses and spyware and can provide antivirus and antispyware programs to help against re-infection.

Website Design & Hosting

We can register a domain and host it on our server, configure webspace and email for direct server delivery, pop3, imap or webmail collection.

We utilise html coding, Dreamweaver, PHP programming, Cascading Style Sheets, Javascript, MYSQL for databases and can deal with Flash, graphic and logo design. Search engine optimisation and submissions can be implemented. Basic static pages or full Content Management systems can be provided.

Prices start from £36 for hosting and £100 for webdesign.
