Setting up a computer you just bought may seem like an overwhelming and complicated task for you to do on your own. Good thing our computer techs at Get Computer Repair are here to help!

There’s more to setting up your brand new computer than just taking everything out of the box it came in. Before you can start surfing the Internet or working on your new computer, you need to ensure that your hardware is properly connected. You should also make sure that you have all the latest updates installed so that you can make the most out of your computer experience.

You don’t have to do all these things on your own! Simply hire one of our computer experts. We’ll take care of everything for you. Our computer experts are able to come to your home or office and set up everything so that it’s ready for you to use.

Setup New Computer Brisbane – Hardware Parts Setup

If you purchased a computer complete with all the software you need and you only need help with setting up the parts, this is the service for you.

Our computer experts can setup all of your computer parts for you. Whether you need help setting up your Mac, desktop, or laptop, we can setup both the hardware and software you need. We can also help with connecting any peripheral devices necessary such as printers, speakers, scanners, and any other device you might need for your computer setup.

Aside from assembling the parts of your computer, we make sure that your computer is properly connected to the Internet. We can also assist you with transferring files from your old computer to the new one or connecting your computer to an already existing network.

Sometimes computers sold with a preinstalled operating system like Windows also come with preinstalled software that you don’t necessarily need — these are called bloatware. Most of them are programs you will never actually use so it’s better to get them out of your computer so they don’t occupy valuable space on your hard disk. More space on your hard disk will make your computer perform better and faster.

Setup New Computer Brisbane – Setup and Installation

We also offer any installations you might need for your brand new computer. If you bought an operating system along with your new computer, we can perform the installation for you.

If you don’t have an operating system yet or any of the software installers you need, we can provide them for you! We can even give you free advice on which software to use or what cheap alternatives work just as great as the more popular, expensive software.

There are several options for different setup and installation tasks that we can provide for you. You might not even know that you need some of the services we offer! Our computer techs can discuss our services with you so that you can be fully assured that the computer setup we provide for you is exactly how you want it done.
