PC health check

If your PC/Laptop is running slowly, then we offer a health check to confirm that all parts are working as they should. We will blow out any dust from the case and fans, and check that the operating system has the latest updates, and also check for Virus’s, Malware and Adware.

Upgrades

Desktop PCs are very upgradeable due to the design – ram, hard drives, CPU, power supply, graphics card etc., are all possible, as is keep the case but everything else changed. Laptops and All-In-Ones, on the other hand are not so easy, but normally you can upgrade the ram or replace/upgrade the hard drive.

Data recovery

If your PC has stopped working but the hard drive still functions, we are normally able to get the data off the drive and depending on size, put it onto a USB stick or External hard drive. However, if the hard drive has stopped working, and your data is valuable, then one of our Data Recovery partners should be able to get the data recovered for you. Do I need a backup? (PDF File)

Domains

Using our Domain & Hosting partner (Ionos Cloud Ltd), we can register a web domain on your behalf and offer hosting, website, and email accounts.
If you want a full featured website or a logo designed, we work with a couple of companies that can help depending on your requirements. Contact us for information. Domain ownership info (PDF)

We can build new PCs to suit your requirements (subject to parts availability and budget). A small range of new laptops are available to order as we currently do not hold stock.

Refurbished PCs & Laptops

From time to time we have both Refurbished PCs & Laptops in stock. Please contact us to see what we have available.

Data Destruction

If you have an old hard drive (or SSD) that you want all the data securely removed, then we have the ability to do this for you.
Data Removal/Sanitization Methods: DoD 5220.22-M, GOST R 50739-95, Gutmann, Random Data, Schneier, VSITR, Write Zero

Anti-Virus Software

We have partnered with leading companies to offer a range of Security and Anti-Virus software for individual PCs/Laptops/Mobile phones or for a complete house full of devices. Contact us for details & prices.

Computer Training

Are you after some help with software, or not sure how to do something on your computer?
Contact us and we can put you in touch with one of our associates who will be able to help.

CyberCentre

MFW-Computers our CyberCentre is now open with Full Fibre Broadband connection. If you need to use a computer every now and then, but don't want the expense of buying one, then why not rent one of ours by the hour (or half hour). We also have Colour printers and scanners available.

Laptop Repairs

Replacement laptop screens fitted, however we no longer replace OLED screens due to their fragile nature.
Some laptops may need a 'board level' specialist to be able to repair them. We have partnered with a specialist company to be able to offer such services.

WiFi

Free WiFi for our customers and friends in the area. Just ask for the details.

Windows Updates

Windows updates can take hours to download & install, so please be patient. Depending on the version of windows, you will find that it needs to download the update, verify it, then prepare for installing and finally do the install. We are therefore, unable to tell you how long an update will take.

Anti-Virus scans

To do a full virus scan on a computer can take a long time. If you just run a quick scan, it will only check the most common files and folders that can be infected. It is best to run a full system scan if you think that you may have a virus on your computer. If you have any external drives, do full scans on them too.

While-you-wait PC Repairs

We do not offer a 'while-you-wait' repair service. Some repairs & updates can take many hours of 'bench time'. We aim to look at any Laptop or Desktop PC brought in the same day, but on occasions this is not possible, but will always get to it as soon as we possibly can.

Printer Cartridges

We don't stock printer ink or toner due to the huge number of different printers and cartridges available, but if you are local to Halesworth, Hetty's Little Copy Shop does stock a range of cartridges.

Printer Repairs

We don't normally repair printers as the cost to repair can outweigh the value of printer quite easily, especially with inkjet printers. But we will always have a chat (or look) and give you our honest opinion.

Apple Mac

Whilst we don't deal with Apple Macs ourselves, if you need Mac repairs, upgrades or support by a Mac Certified Technician, then contact Giles @ Gi-Mac (Gi-Mac.co.uk)

3D Printing

We have a Flashforge Adventurer 3 Pro 3D printer, that offers a build volume of 150x150x150mm. We have black PLA, but can get different colours to suit your requirements.

Data Cabling

Whether you need a single data cable installed or a whole building cabled, we are able to put you in touch with the people who can do this for you.

Opening hours

We are normally open from 9.00am to 4.00pm, Monday to Friday, closed Weekends & Bank Holidays.
Outside of these hours, send an Email or leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
On the odd occasion when the opening times change, these will be posted on our Facebook page and here on the website.
