Cboost (Compuboost) Services:

Computer Upgrade Service

Ram Memory Upgrade

Sometimes the life of the computer can be extended with an upgrade computer service. Instead of buying a whole new PC, we can make it run faster and hold more. The most common computer service upgrade are RAM memory and Hard drive upgrades. Windows 7, 8 and 10 runs best with 4GB of ram or more. Older software, like Windows XP, Vista are typically 32-bit. They run fine with at least 2 or 3 GB RAM. 32-bit software cannot use more than 3.2GB of ram, so upgrading past 4GB for a 32-bit system is useless. Windows 10 runs best with 8GB or more. For gaming systems and graphics workstations, 16GB and 32GB will give best performace

Hard Drive Upgrade

The next most common computer upgrade is hard drive upgrade. People often replace the stock drive to a larger drive, like 1TB or 2TB. Or, they upgrade to a faster Solid State Drive (SSD). An SSD drive is actually a type of RAM but organized as a hard drive. Because there is no rotational device, it has no latency time. Latency is the time for the drive to spin the data to the head. Without latency the drive is significantly faster. Typically RAM SSD drives areat least 10x faster than rotational drives. This can give dramatic performance improvement. Compuboost upgrade service typically includes copying all the data over. Then we re-setup up the desktop, email and other user preferences.

Other Compuboost upgrades include video card, CPU, Power supply upgrades, to increase the power and performance. Sometimes all three need to be upgraded because high end video or CPUs requires more powerful power supplies.

Operating System Upgrades

Another very common upgrade is the Operating System (OS). 32bit Windows 10 a common upgrade for older systems. 64bit Windows 10 is common for newer systems with Windows 7 or 8. We also update Macbooks and IMacs to the latest software possible, like El Capitan for older macs, and High Sierra and Mojave for later models.

Sometimes the operating system can be upgraded directly, with no loss of data. Other times, the new operating must be installed and the data transferred later as a second operation. We will try to do the former, but sometimes conditions prevent this (errors in old OS, out of date, or simultaneous hardware change or upgrade).

Todays motherboard use two types of installation. The first is called legacy, and all operating system data is on the drive. The second is called UEFI. This difference is important as the operating system serial number (Product code in Windows) is actually embedded in the motherboard itself. So when Windows is reloaded, there is no need to type the Product code, it comes from the motherboard itself. Starting with Windows 8, then Windows 10, this is the prevalent case today.

Operating system installation service include loading all drivers. We can also assist in moving over Email and programs, and setting up desktop.

We provide file transfer computer service from older machine to new, or to backup data

Mac Upgrades

Because Macs have a very long life, typically longer than 10 years, they can be successfully upgraded. Similar to PCs, ram upgrades to 4 GB or 8 GB is common and effective. Similarly, SSD upgrades are also very popular as well. And finally, the OS can be upgraded to the latest possible for the hardware.
