QLine IT can format your computer and reinstall Windows
Your computer will be faster with a refresh
Sometimes maintenance alone will not help your PC. On these occasions, the computer might be badly infected with malware or Windows has become bloated and slow. Often the time required to fix all the issues can exceed that of starting from fresh.
A format is a procedure to wipe the drive of all the contents and prepare for an operating system.
Rather than tidying the files on your computer, a backup of your data is taken and once wiped, the operating system is “clean”, thus removing any known or unknown issues.
Take the opportunity to upgrade your operating system to Windows 10 or Windows 11 as operating systems older than Windows 10 may experience compatibility issues with new software.
Perhaps it’s also time to upgrade to a new version of Microsoft Office – QLine IT is a Microsoft Partner.
Software will be correctly installed; all drivers will be up to date and the operating system will be a fresh install rather than being upgraded on top of a previous iteration, making your computer factory-fresh.
The benefits of a format are numerous including:
Keep your files and upgrade to a fast SSD
Most personalisations can be backed up prior to the format, such as bookmarks, desktop icons and of course all personal data including pictures, documents and music. Once a computer has been returned to you is the ideal time to perform some housekeeping. This means going through your data, archiving, backing up and organising it into folders.
If your computer has a slow mechanical hard drive we recommend changing it for an SSD (Solid State Drive) as part of the reinstallation process. This will provide extended longevity for your PC, Mac or laptop. Book an appointment today with QLine IT and we will have your computer working quicker and quieter than ever before.
