Service and Repair | Data Recovery/Backup | Preventative Maintenance | Personal Care Package | Virus Protection | Upgrades | Networking | Training | Time Table

If you've been told you need to use a recovery disk to reinstall your operating system to fix a problem, please give us a call first!  This is usually not necessary, especially for virus or spyware problems.  We may be able to save you a lot of time and hassle as we can fix most problems without this drastic step.

Vendor-supplied recovery disks (Sony, Dell, HP, Gateway, etc.) may delete all your files during the recovery process, so please do not use the recovery disk unless you have backed up your data first, or are sure you know what you are doing!

Service and Repair
We provide on-site service to repair and fix all PC problems at your home or office. We strive for excellence and will only leave satisfied customers.

Data Recovery/Backup
Disasters can happen. If you are suddenly faced with a crashed hard drive or a stolen computer, will you have a backup of all your data? Many people never think about backups until it's too late. ej Computing can provide a detailed disaster recovery plan to protect your data and minimize your downtime.

Some early warning signs of hard drive failure are:

  • Losing data - files are suddenly missing or are corrupted (for example, strange characters showing up in a document you were working on)
  • Frequent computer freezes - the whole computer stops responding, you have to restart the computer.
  • Strange noises from the hard disk - high pitched whining, grinding or clicking noises.
  • Error messages on startup or failure to start - you may see error messages that say things like 'drive not found', or 'cannot load operating system'.  You may not be able to start Windows.

These symptoms do not always indicate imminent hard drive failure, but should be investigated.  The best advice is to make backups of your important data regularly!

If you suspect a data loss situation and have no backups, stop using the computer as soon as possible and give us a call. This will provide the best chance of recovering your information. We provide data recovery from crashed hard drives, CDs, disks,  flash memory cards, zip disks, tapes, and many other types of media. We can help with lost passwords and repair corrupted files, emails and databases. Not all data is recoverable, please call for details.
