Although a lot of people think it should be easy to just ‘plug and play’ your new hardware, you’ve got to ensure you don’t introduce static into your PC or laptop through your body. So you really need to take precautions to make sure that doesn’t happen.

If you go to an expert then there is a guarantee that the hardware will work when it has been fitted. If for some reason it doesn’t work then we can remedy that.

It’s very rare that when we fit hardware that doesn’t work, but it’s quite a common occurrence when people do it themselves.

Trying DIY can actually cost you more money because it’s easy to damage the internal workings of a computer if you don’t really know what you are doing!

It can be very frustrating for when fitting hardware because the reason people usually upgrade is often because they have new software to go with it.

A new graphics card is a classic case - it’s not just a case of plugging it in and it works. You have to upload drivers and make sure everything works and if you don’t do that properly it is never going to work.

Our advice is if you don’t really know what you are doing then get someone who does - us!

You wouldn’t fix your car with a hammer and put in the wrong parts - although people do! It’s the same with computers...
