How To Help Avoid Downtime & Costly Computer Repairs

Hi, I’m Micah, the guy who normally comes and handles your computer repairs, emails, printers, etc.

You may wonder how you can see less of me, and I respect that, so here’s my answer:

Let’s fix things before they break by making sure you have technology that will work in the next decade instead of the last one.

Lately, a few clients have called to tell me that their devices have decided all on their own that they don’t want to work anymore. “Sounds odd,” I say as I pack my tools, head to my car, and hit the road.

When I arrive, what I encounter is an outdated printer, graphics card, monitor, or some other old piece of machinery. Normally, this is because of an automatic Windows Update that has brought in a new driver that broke the device. There is a temporary fix to this, which I’ve explained in this post about Windows 10 updates and ATI graphics card/printer issues.

Don’t Rely On Ole’ Faithful.

Now that I have spent the time to get there, troubleshoot the problem, and fix it by purchasing a newer version of the product, it comes time for me to tell you that we could have solved the issue by implementing the solution a few years ago.

Replacing and upgrading old equipment and software before it breaks is often a better financial move than waiting for it to break. 

I find that many clients become reliant on a piece of hardware they have been using for a long time, because it’s never failed them. Like a computerized Ole’ Faithful. Be it their dot matrix printer, their 2005 D-link switch, or their ATI Graphics card, the similarity between all of them is that they will be obsolete in the next 5-10 years. If you want your business to survive beyond the death of its broken bones, you can talk to us.

Upgrade To Thrive.

We will perform a survey of your business and give you a report of everything that has an affordable, upgradeable option. In a lot of cases, it’s not just the hardware that’s outdated. Many offices are still working with Microsoft Office 2007, Windows Server 2003, and other older pieces of software.

My first advice is to make sure you are thinking of the most recent options, and if you can’t or don’t want to install it yourself, that’s where we come in.

Where We Come In.

Peak Solutions has been paying attention to the wide world of tech for the past 20 years. It’s our job to make sure you’re ready for the fluctuations that come with a constantly upgrading environment. We don’t want to put you on the bleeding edge where you could fall off, but we keep you on top of the wave so you can get where you want to go. You can call us today to determine what’s anchoring you to the past so you can move towards a higher future.
