Upgrading your PC

Same-day service near you​

Did you know? Every year we dispose of 44.7 million tonnes of e-waste which is expected to increase by 8% every year. Is it staggering how much we waste and no longer re-use.

So for this very reason, Buzz A Geek encourages clients to re-use what they have and upgrade their PCs where possible.

Our IT services have a national footprint so we have a technician near you who can perform a variety of upgrades to your desktop, laptop or servers. From upgrading your operating system from Windows 7 to improving load times of your applications, or even allowing your PC to run memory-hungry applications.

There isn’t a PC upgrade you can think of that we cannot do.

Our upgrade service - 5 things our technicians can do to speed up a tired PC.

Storage mediums have changed

Replacing a hard drive with a Solid State Drive or SSD is one of the best upgrades you can do for a Desktop or a Laptop. Performance of an old PC is improved dramatically.

With no moving parts, requiring less power to operate, SSD drives work more quietly and efficiently. You can expect boot times to much quicker and all your applications will feel responsive again. So stop defragging and get your old PC upgraded to an SSD today!

Memory, more memory, more memory

Do programs frequently stop responding? Does your PC take time to catch up to you? Are you clicking on an icon and not getting a response?

If the answer is Yes; Then your computer is likely to be short of RAM (or better know as memory).

Most PCs can add more memory. Our technicians will ask a few questions about the purpose you use your PC for and suggest how much memory you should need. Our technician will install the quickest and maximum amount of memory your PC can handle. Making sure it is 100% compatible with your system. Our service covers PCs, Laptops and Servers.

Upgrading your Graphics Card

Some programs require fast graphics processing units (GPUs) to rendering the pictures you see on your PC display.

Applications like AutoCAD and games push the capabilities and work best with the correct hardware. A new card can also improve the overall computing expericen by playing videos more smoothly and freeing up memory.

We also upgrade CPUs.

Faster network access means a quick response

Another improvement to an old PC can be made by way of replacing the Network (Ethernet) or WiFi card built into a desktop, laptop or server. An upgrade can have a dramatic impact on performance, with greater range and throughput for your device.

Our WiFi technicians will look at your access point infrastucture and select the best WiFi card for the job. We can also upgrade your Home and Office WiFi routers and access points to maximise your wireless connection to the Internet.

Upgrade to the latest operating system

Our IT Support service can also upgrade your PC to the latest version of operating system. Microsoft had a free upgrade to Microsoft Windows 10 for many old PCs. However that upgrade window has now passed and users are encouraged to purchase the latest version.

However before you do that it is advisable that one of our technicians reviews your system to insure that Windows 10 will be compatible.

Talk to us about upgrading to Microsoft's new OS called Windows 11 if you want to skip a release.
