Brisbane is a city of abundant natural flora and fauna and expanding industrial growth. Brisbane city and suburbs embodies the Australian lifestyle.

It is quickly becoming one of Australia’s next international cities with world class restaurants, sporting facilities and universities.
Fixing a slow computer
The first step is to check that your computer is the source of the problem. Videos that take ages to buffer and websites that take ages to show, may not be your computer’s fault. Your internet connection may be the cause in this case. Try a speed test with www.speedtest.net. This will let you know if your internet connection is slower than expected.
If the problem is your PC, you should check whether you have plenty of free space on the hard drive. With Windows and all your software, your computer may be struggling on the performance and does not have enough to store operating software, productivity software and files you create. Clearing some space will help or adding an external hard drive to store files, data and images will help. For computer repairs in Brisbane, call SuperGeek on 134335 to ask for some help upgrading your PC or improving the performance through hardware.
Internet speed is slow
As mentioned above, a speed test with www.speedtest.net will let you know if your internet connection is slower than your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is telling you. On occasion the modem may be the cause. Home users – try resetting or switching off the modem for a minute. Switch back on and allow enough time for the modem to restart its settings and connect.
Pop-up windows, malware or computer malfuntion.
If your computer is not protected by anti-virus software or a firewall, or both, it’s time to get that fixed. In todays IT savvy world, there are unfortunately a vast array of computer hackers, software writers and fraudsters. Protecting your computer from having problems with performance or failure is so easy with the latest anti-virus software. Worse case scenario is your computer has no way of protecting your precious files or personal information. Take action now. If you are unlucky enough to get a virus or malware program on your computer you can call SuperGeek on 134335 to get the virus removed. Supergeek computer repairs Brisbane can also help you to install the anti-virus software as well.
Anti Spam and Email
Protecting your computer from malware with a reputable anti virus software program will help keep those irritating emails at bay and will also reduce the number of problems of email spam that we seem to waste considerable time filtering manually. If you want to find out more about protecting your personal information and keeping those annoying emails out of your email client give SuperGeek a call or use our chat feature on the page to speak to a friendly Brisbane SuperGeek technician.
Believe it or not, your computer generates heat in the processor even though it has no moving parts. The heat is a bi-product of electrical energy. The more demand, or programs you are using, the more work the processor has to do. If you notice that your computer is very hot and you cannot hear the processor fan running, then you should shut down the computer and call SuperGeek. We can replace the fan or check whether the system is working properly. Overheating is a common occurrence for computer repairs in Brisbane.
Your computer keeps shutting down or restarting without prompting
Firstly, ensure your system is all up to date with current software, including operating system (Windows), productivity software (Microsoft Office etc), and driver software (for printers, modems etc). If this is up to date and does not require any further updates it may be a hardware problem. Computer hardware problems are a little harder to diagnose. Graphic Cards, network cards, motherboards and hard drives are critical to the smooth running of your computer.
In this kind of circumstance and for other computer repairs Brisbane, it may be more economic to have a SuperGeek visit your home or workplace to check your computer for faulty hardware or incompatible software. Either way, you will find a SuperGeek technician the most economic way to repair your computer.
If you have ever experienced the fatal blue screen before, you can easily understand how serious the implications are. Apart from the inconvenience of not having a working computer, there is every chance you may not be able to recover your precious photos, files or work. Data recovery may be the last resort, but there is every chance we can recover your data for you if no other fixes are found to be successful.
Call SuperGeek on 134335 or use our Livechat facility to talk through the problem.
Computer is clicking or making noises
This may be a symptom prior to your computer stopping working. Very little in the computer relies on moving parts. Your hard drive and processor cooling fan are generally the only pieces of hardware that run during the whole time your computer is switched on. The fan generally only makes a noise because it is pushing air around the processor. The hard drive constantly runs at somewhere between 5000 and 12000 rpm. They are finely balanced machines which rely on precision to accurately read data stored on the surface of a disk.
Under normal circumstances you will only hear the hard drive running up when you first switch on your computer. After that, there is very little noise. If you start hearing a clicking noise or a slight scraping noise, this may be the heads touching the hard drive disk. This not something that you can ignore because at some point your disk will fail. You should stop using your computer. Having a backup drive or external hard drive where your backup is stored will now be your saviour. If you do not have a backup drive, call SuperGeek for advice on what to do and the best way to save your data, photos, files or work.
Every now and again you may find your computer freezing or stopping, especially as it gets older. This can also be related to the hard drive. As more and more data is stored on the hard drive of your computer, as documents are opened, changed, and closed, you download your holiday pics or weekend images from your phone, you trawl the internet, you read and send email. All of this activity generates small pieces of information that need to be stored. Unfortunately, on occassion the hard drive head cannot access the information readily or some of the data is missing and this may be the cause of the computer freezing.
This is one of the most common reasons for computer repairs Brisbane but there are a number of other issues which may cause your computer to freeze. Call SuperGeek for a quick helpful chat about possible computer repairs.
Internet connection problems
Now who hasn’t had their fair share of internet problems. From changing providers to changing technologies. ADSL, Cable, Modems, routers, ISP’s, network cards, bluetooth, wireless. These are all the phrases banded around by the internet industry (and a whole lot more), but lets try and not get too technical.
Today, there seems to be much reliance on self help, Setting up modems or routers, loading software and connecting are on the whole automated. It is generally when something doesn’t work that it gets more complex.
