Through Old Barn IT, I provide the following services for both individuals and company's
Most types of computer hardware problems can be undertaken, either on-site or in
my workshop. All hardware repairs are guaranteed for three months, and any new parts
fitted will have twelve months warranty.
I don't operate a "no fix, no fee" system, as run by many computer companies (all
computer problems can be fixed if you throw enough money at them!). Instead, I provide
a fault evaluation service, which includes one hour of labour. If I can fix it within
that time and without using parts, I will, otherwise I'll provide you with a recommendation
and pricing for the appropriate course of action, whether that be a repair or replacement.
I have experience of working on and repairing anything from the original IBM PC’s
and Apple Mac’s onwards. I have a wealth of experience to draw on when fixing computers.
My repair service now extends to retro equipment such as the Commodore Amiga, to
provide a service for the growing number of people into “vintage computing”. >>Top
The most common problems with modern computers, are caused by software corruption.
Improper shutdowns, general protection faults and system errors are both symptoms
and causes of software faults.
My many years of experience enable me to help solve your software headaches!
Troubleshooting can be undertaken either on-site, or in my workshop. Work performed
on-site will attract an hourly charge, whereas workshop time is only charged for
the time I am actually working on your equipment (e.g. I won't charge you for the
2 hours machine time taken to run a complete anti-virus scan, I'll only charge for
the time taken to set the scan going and to fix any problems found). >>Top
Virus / Malware Removal
Viruses and malware are a major headache if your computer catches one, but how can
you tell if you have a virus, or if the computer is just misbehaving?
I provide a virus and malware removal service, whereby a full system scan will be
performed, and any nasties will be removed. This is backed up by advice and support
on choosing and using appropriate anti-virus / security software to minimise any
future risk of exposure.
If the problem you have turns out to be software or hardware related rather than
a virus, I can fix those faults too! >>Top
Internet Access Set Up and Troubleshooting
New internet connections can be set up, existing ones switched between providers,
and troublesome ones fixed.
There aren't many internet related problems I haven't come across, so I can almost
certainly fix any fault you may have, and this includes sorting out wifi issues.
Computer System Installation
If you are buying or have bought a new computer and require assistance setting it
up, I can help.
I can perform system backups and data transfers to ensure your important information
makes the transition from your old computer to the new one. Internet connections
and email accounts can be moved from PC to PC, and peripheral equipment and devices
I can design and install new computer networks, and extend existing ones, using both
wired and wireless solutions. I also troubleshoot and fix networking problems.
Computer networks are no longer just for businesses. Small home networks can be installed
to allow shared access to valuable resources such as internet and printers.
Wifi networking solutions can be designed and installed, and problematic connections
Since all requirements and environments are different, I would need to undertake
a site survey prior to providing a quote. Site surveys are charged for at an hourly
rate, but this is refunded if you instruct Old Barn IT to go ahead with installation.
Training is available in your own home or office, on your own equipment. Sessions
can be tailored to your own requirements, and are flexible so you can learn how to
make the most out of your own computer equipment. >>Top
I can create letterheads, business cards, brochures and flyers, and provide print
Multimedia presentations can also be produced. >>Top
