Desktop & Laptop Hardware Repairs Info:

 

What is Hardware?

Computer hardware are the physical components which comprise a computer, such as :

  • keyboard
  • mouse
  • monitor
  • hard drive
  • video card
  • sound card
  • memory
  • motherboard

Does your Hardware need repair?

Software programs and applications may cause a computer to stop working or operate at a less than optimal level. A 1CS Technician can determine if an issue is related to hardware or software and if either require repair.

Hardware can become broken for obvious reasons but sometimes for not so obvious reasons.

Short of seeing physical damages to the exterior of the hardware, it may be difficult to detect hardware related damages. Hardware may be damaged internally where it is hard to see.

Hardware is not necessarily broken just because it sustained physical damages. Damages would need to affect one or more critical operations and result in the device no longer working or working with a reduced level of performance.

Computer Software Repair Info:

 

What is Software?

Computer Software refers to programs, applications and operating system utilized by a computer or server. Whereas computer hardware refers to physical components and equipment such as a motherboard, hard drive, monitor or keyboard.

Common forms of software include:

  • Windows or MAC OS
  • Microsoft Word or Excel
  • Office 365 or Gmail
  • Adobe Reader or Illustrator
  • Anti-virus (Norton, ESET, AVG)
  • Quickbooks or Sage
  • Printer or scanner drivers
  • Network/router applications

Does your Software need repair?

Software would need repair if it is not functioning at an acceptable level.

If a particluar program or application does not perform well, it may be a matter of adjusting the settings.

If software was working correctly and no longer is, it could be due to the introduction of new software which is affecting the settings of the existing software.

Sometimes an update to software including an operating system or browser is overdue and required to ensure functionality.

If your software uses the internet, a disruption in internet service may stop at least some aspect of the software from working until the internet reconnects.

There are different reasons why software programs stop working, or function poorly. Sometimes the problem is not readily understood and requires investigation.

What to do when software is not working?

If a program or application was working but no longer is and the computer is otherwise working fine, please consider the following:

(1) Has the computer been rebooted?

(2) Are there any available software updates waiting to be installed?

(3) Does the program require the internet and if so, is the internet working?

(4) Has new software been introduced to the computer?

If asking the above questions does not lead to a solution, contact us for computer repair services.

Can 1CS repair my Software?

1CS can very likely resolve software issues with commonly used software programs, applications and operating systems, aswell as some not so common, unless the software has been corrupted and rendered irrepairable.

Compared to Computer Hardware Repairs, which we conduct a limited amount of, Computer Software Repair comprises the vast majority of what our Technicians do on a weekly basis.

Computer Software Repair refers to the adjusting and manipulation of computer program, application or operating system settings to achieve a desired result. If settings are not configured correctly, software may not yield the intended result. Incorrectly configured settings may require investigation, troublehsooting and reconfiguration.

Where does 1CS repair Software?

At the customer’s location or over the internet using a remote access program called Zoho Asssit. We believe that 1CS supplies some of the best online pc repair services Toronto has to offer, given the rate we charge. We don’t have a retail location for you to visit but we can pickup your device and drop it back off to you.

Online computer repair help can be utilized to address a fairly broad range of issues but not everything, sometimes a computer technician is required to be in front of the device.

 

 Get Printing Issues Fixed!

1CS can assess printing problems, troubleshoot the issue and get you printing. But first, try the below steps. 

Troubleshoot Printing Issues:

What is a Printer?

A Printer is a piece of hardware, usually connected to a computer, which prints text and images onto paper. When we talk about a Printer, we are not talking about a person whose business is the printing press. Over time, printers may require computer services. Luckily, 1CS can carry-out some of the best printer repair Toronto has to offer.

Common types of printers used by individuals and business:

Inkjet – it uses special ink

Laser – it uses LED technology to get small particles of toner from a cartridge onto paper

Often, laser printing is more economical than Inkjet printing.

If you are thinking of buying a new printer, scanner or multi-function device, we can help you acquire it and give you advice along the way.

Step #1: Why is my Printer not printing?

There are many reasons why a printer won’t print. When troubleshooting printing issues, we recommend one first look for the following:

  • Unplugged power chord
  • Unplugged USB chord
  • Lost network connection or wireless connection
  • On screen device notifications
  • Paper jam

If nothing is unplugged, connections are good, notifications have been dealt with and there is no paper jam, go onto phase 2.

Step #2: What to do if Printer is not printing?
  • Cancel print jobs
  • Check Network settings
  • Reboot Computer
  • Reboot Printer
  • Reset print spooler

If all print jobs have been cancelled, network settings are normal, the computer and printer rebooted and the print spooler has been reset, go onto phase 3.

Step #3: What to do if that doesn't work?

Contact us

If you prefer, one of our Technicians would be pleased to carry out the troubleshooting steps listed above.
