Depending on the state of the drive we may be able to perform a Data Transfer to another drive before it's too late. If not we can take care of you with our Data Recovery options.

Overheating is not a common issue for traditional desktops unless the unit is installed in an area with a lot of dust like a workshop. With a traditional desktop there is a lot of open space for dust to collect. This is not the case with All in One Desktops and Small Form Factor Desktops as their cooling components are smaller and more compact allowing dust build up which can clog up the heat-sink. If you notice your computer fan making an odd noise it may need cleaning. If the computer fans are constantly running the thermal compound which dispenses heat from the chipset to the heat-sink may need to be replaced.
If you're finding yourself frustrated when your desktop bogs under heavy work loads you may need more RAM. If you have multiple browser tabs open, a word document being edited and streaming music at the same time you would be defined as "the multitasker". Increasing the computer memory or RAM will allow you to switch between open windows more efficiently. Depending on your desktop model will determine how much RAM can be added and what the max bandwidth or speed is compatible.
STORAGE DRIVE UPGRADE
Is your internal storage drive full? Storage Drives come in many different physical form factor sizes as well as logical storage space, measured in gigabytes or terabytes. Let use provide you the options that best fit your needs today and down the road.
Need a boost in performance on your Desktop PC? You may be able to upgrade the CPU for multi-core enhancements or faster GHz. For Custom Built Devices this is always an option and varies on Branded Desktops due to Power Supply limitations. If you want to get the most out of your silica we may be able to overclock the CPU once custom cooling or better thermal paste is applied.
POWER SUPPLY REPLACEMENT
If your desktop no longer powers on with no sign of fan spin or indicator lights the culprit is probably the Power Supply Unit. A power supply’s job is to convert the AC power from your wall outlet to DC power that your other components can use. Most Desktop PSU are between 350 to 450 Watts, whereas Gaming Desktops have PSUs ranging from 450 to 1200 Watts. When choosing a replacement PSU or purchasing a new PSU it is important to look at the efficiency rating and the required wattage of the components.
AC ADAPTER REPLACEMENT
Some Desktop Computers do not have an Internal Power Supply but use an AC Adapter. This is more common with low end CPU that can run on 45 to 90 watts of power or Small Form Factor or Micro Tower Desktops.
OPERATING SYSTEM REPAIR
Is your desktop no longer booting correctly? Maybe your plagued with kernel panics or "blue screens of death"... no matter the case we can repair operating system corruption.
CPU HEAT-SINK UPGRADE
A CPU Heat-Sink acts similar to the radiator in your car, dispersing heat and blowing it away from the internals. When choosing the right heat-sink the case design and air flow is important to consider. In high end gaming machines it is common for the Heat-Sink to be paired with a water cooled radiator and a pump which allows the components to be cooled more efficiently.
GRAPHICS CARD UPGRADE
New game downloaded and unhappy with the Frames Per Second? It may be time for a Graphics Card Upgrade. Graphics Cards perform the rendering of visual effects. A Graphics Card can also be used to allow multiple display screens to be connected to your machine.
The Mother Board or System Board is the backbone or spinal cord of your computer where all components connect and communicate with each other. The type and chipset of your Motherboard will determine the CPU that can be installed, the amount and type of RAM and how many internal components and external peripherals can be connected. Motherboards come in several Form Factors including Extended ATX (EATX), Standard ATX, Mini ATX and Micro ATX.
WATER COOLING, RADIATORS & LOOPS

There are several options out there for surge protection, but not all of them perform equally. It is important to have any outside line to go through a Surge Suppressor before it connects to your devices. It is also important to choose a Surge Suppressor that has a high enough Joule Rating to protect the equipment connected.
