@Stroud - Repairs, Fixes & Upgrades

** Covid-19 Restrictions. PC Techniques continues to work during the current crisis offering various working methods.

Please see here for details

Often I have found that repairs are more effective when done where the device is normally used.

Naturally, under the covid-19 restrictions this working is best avoided where possible and for details of how I will work around this please click the link above.

I aim to achieve more accurate results when the devices are repaired & tested 'in situ' wherever possible.

Broadband & Line Faults

For Broadband or Network Repairs it is a common experience for service providers (ISP's) to play a game of "blame tennis" with each other through you, the customer! This wastes a considerable amount of your time!

It often causes time off work where you are waiting in for a line engineer and you may be sent a bill for an abortive visit if the fault is proved to be inside your premises.

Internet Service Providers warn that if an OpenReach engineer visit becomes the next course of action, their support agent will get you to commit to pay a large fee should the engineer not find a fault in their system.

I have BT engineering experience as a field engineer and so can liaise with them on your behalf so can quickly narrow down the likely cause(s) of issues. This can make line fault repair times much shorter, as I already know the "tech speak" and can cut through exhausting testing routines.

Again, I will work in such ways so to avoid unnecessary exposure of covid organisms.

Repair Shops

If your PC is disconnected and fixed away from your property this can be incomplete because a fault can be with a peripheral device (a router, network switch, printer etc) not necessarily in the PC.

If you take it to a repair shop and the fault still exists you will have wasted your money, time and fuel and experienced inconvenience.

So you could face a bill at the repair shop and then another bill if the problem persists.

I repair 'in situ', you can be assured that its fixed!

Thank you so much for your help in saving my computer after the “blue screen of death” appeared ... for repairing my laptop and getting it running like silk better than it has been for the last year or so. - In appreciation Louise.


"I'm blind and use a screen reading system to access my computer. Greg Dance was recommended to me by another blind person, as he has learned about speech systems, an area in which he specialises. I find him extremely helpful, patient, thorough and reliable. He's really helped me to get the most out of my computer, and I'm very grateful for all that he's done." - MK Nailsworth Glos.
