BRISBANE COMPUTER REPAIRS, SERVICES & UPGRADES
Whatever's gone wrong with your computer, the good news is that there's always a solution. Even if it won't start up, it's rarely as dead as you might think it is. In some cases it'll be a fairly simple fix, other times a bit more complicated. Startup problems, performance issues, malware, whatever it might be, I'm here to help. Head on over to the Computer Repairs page to see a more comprehensive list of the issues I can sort out for you.
Have you got a new computer at home or for your business and you need help with setting everything up so that things look and feel the way you want them to and it does everything you need it to do? I can help you with configuring your Mac, PC or laptop so that you have access to the internet, your emails are coming in, you've got all the right software, you’re printing successfully, and whatever else you might need.
Frustrated with how your computer's performing and wondering if it's time for a new one? With an appropriate upgrade, your computer could actually run better than it's ever done before and for a much lower cost than buying a new one. Software upgrades typically give you improved functionality whilst hardware upgrades major on speed. Check out the Computer Upgrades page to find out more about the sorts of upgrades I can do for you.
Unfortunately viruses and malware are a fact of life. So too are scam phone calls where someone persuades you to let them log in to your computer remotely and makes changes, with the aim of taking money from you. You may be affected by a virus if your computer’s running too slowly or behaving in other unusual ways. I can assist you with removing any viruses and malware, and also with securing your computer again following an intrusion.
Computers are an indispensable part of our everyday lives. But they can so easily go wrong. Yesterday it was working fine, today it won't even start up.

It’s a good idea to schedule a regular ‘check-up’ for your computer. As you surf the internet, receive emails, install applications and add other bits and pieces to your computer’s hard drive it can easily become cluttered and messy. I can help you with cleaning it up, checking for malware, uninstalling unnecessary software and other preventative actions and optimisations. Check out the Computer Health Checks & Tune-ups page for more details.
Is there something about your computer that's not quite the way you'd like it to be? Or maybe it's running more slowly than it used to. You may have unnecessary applications running in the background, or possibly even a virus. I can ascertain the cause of the issue and determine whether it can be resolved with a few tweaks, or whether a hardware upgrade, such as extra memory or a new hard drive, would be a better solution.
Nowadays we have more and more devices which connect to the internet - computers, phones, tablets, iPads, smart tv's etc. Our homes and businesses have become networks of interconnected devices and these networks are becoming more and more complicated. I can assist you with installing and setting up your router and any additional bits and pieces you may need so that all your devices connect to the internet reliably.
We store so much of our personal information on our computers, phones, tablets and iPads, whether in the form of documents, photographs or videos. A failure of any of these devices can be a disaster if you haven't backed up your files. I can assist you with setting up manual or automated backups, whether to external media, to 'the Cloud', or even to Network-Attached Storage. No need to worry about that device failure again.
Danniella in Fitzgibbon wanted to rescue photos and data from her 2012 MacBook Pro which had all but died and was very slow. I gave her a couple of options and we ended up replacing the hard drive in her MacBook with a Solid State Drive (SSD). After installing the latest version of the macOS (Catalina) we copied the files from her old hard drive back into the MacBook. She's been able to rescue all her files and now has a much faster computer.
