Buying a computer... part 1

What do you need to know when you decide to buy a new computer?

Well that all depends on what your requirements are; it’s really a catch 22 situation.  

We get asked all the time to supply customers with a quotation for a new computer and its a difficult thing to do without asking lots and lots of questions.

Laptops & liquids don't mix

** HELP ** I have spilt liquid in my laptop

What to do when the worst happens :-

  • Turn off your laptop IMMEDIATELY
  • Unplug the charger IMMEDIATELY
  • Take out the battery IMMEDIATELY
  • Drain any remaining liquid from your laptop
  • Place in a warm location like an airing cupboard for a good couple of days.
  • Make sure all liquid has been dried before testing
  • Or bring it along to us and we will strip it down and dry it out properly.
  • If it is a sticky liquid (wine / pop / Ribena) you may need a new keyboard
