This customer called and said my laptop will not start into Windows. We scanned the hard drive for errors and it will not scan past 10%. This means the hard drive has failed. We will put a Samsung Solid State hard drive in this laptop for him and he will be all set to go. On average a computer with a Solid State hard drive starts up in 9 seconds. If your computer is giving errors or is slow contact us and we will put a SSD drive in your machine. Phone is 06 756 8800 or 0220 435 947. Rex@rexshort.co.nz www.rexshort.co.nz

The printer has stopped working can you help?

Printer

Yesterday morning an Inglewood farmer called and needed help with his printer. “After we got the new spark modem the printer has stopped working can you help?” Turned out the printer was connected via the wireless router and we needed to program the wireless password into the printer. If we can help you in any way with your technology call us here at Rex Short Computer Services. 06 756 8800 or 0220 435 947. Www.rexshort.co.nz rex@rexshort.co.nz

 

Notice the words SMART warning

A local Inglewood farmer brought this computer to us to fix. Notice the words SMART warning. Hard drives have become quite clever these days. They can predict by things like temperature and speed that they are going to fail and show a warning. We were able to save all this farming familys data and set them up with a computer. If we can help you in any way with your technology call us here at Rex Short Computer Services. 06 756 8800 or 0220 435 947. Www.rexshort.co.nz rex@rexshort.co.nz

They were happy to be able to scan and print again. Call us here at Rex Short Computer Services if you need help with your printer. 06 756 8800 or 0220 435 947. rex@rexshort.co.nz www.rexshort.co.nz
