Computer Support

Need help with a computer? I have over 10 years experience in computer repair. I can setup a new computer, install software, optimize your system, recover lost data, and perform general troubleshooting and repair.
 

Networking

By setting up a network in your business or home you can share files, printers and an internet connection between multiple computers. I can setup a wired or wireless network for you or get an existing network diagnosed and repaired. A network can help you save money by several computers sharing a single printer instead of a small printer on every desk. If all files are stored at a single location you can save time looking for a document and make backups a lot easier.
   

The Role of Memory in Your Computer

A computer is made up of three main components, the central processing unit (CPU), the hard drive, and random access memory (RAM).

To understand the function of each component, let's think back to pre-computer days when your workspace consisted of just you, your desk, and your filing cabinet.

Now, think of your computer in those same terms. You are the CPU. You decide what you are going to work on and how hard you're going to work. Your file cabinet is your hard drive. It's where you store all the stuff you may not need every day, but important stuff that you want access to at any given moment. And your desk is the RAM, the memory. If your desk is small, you can only work on a few things at a time. If you want to work on something new, first you'll have to take something off your desk and file it away to make room.

How much memory do you need?

When it comes to adding system memory, the general rule of thumb is the more, the better.

On average, doubling the amount of memory in your system will give you ample "space" to work and will make an obvious difference in overall speed. This is especially with today's memory-hungry applications such as office programs, multimedia editing packages, and graphics-intensive games. More memory allows you to run more programs at once, and your favorite programs will be easier to use.

Your most dangerous possession? Your smartphone

Forget what's in your wallet -- beware your smartphone. It's becoming one of your most dangerous possessions.

If your phone was stolen a few years ago, the thief could make prank calls and read your text messages. Today, that person can destroy your social life -- you said what on Facebook?! -- and wreak havoc on your finances.

Now that smartphones double as wallets and bank accounts -- allowing users to manage their finances, transfer money, make payments, deposit checks and swipe their phones as credit cards -- they are very lucrative scores for thieves. And with 30% of phone subscribers owning iPhones, BlackBerrys and Droids, there are a lot of people at risk.
