Products & Services

Repairs & Upgrades

I can fix most hardware faults and software issues and give you back a computer that performs at its best. I specialise in both Windows laptop and desktop issues (e. g. slow running, overheating, blank or cracked screens, erratic graphics, etc.) .

I look at the computer and its performance as a whole to advise on repairs, tweaks and upgrades to prolong its life and make it perform just like a more modern machine.

Virus Removal

A virus or malware infection can be tricky to remove. You can often cause more problems than you had at the start if you are not experienced and very careful.

If you think you have a virus then stop using your machine, turn it off and give me a call as you may already have been exposed to fraudulent activity.

I will get rid of all the viruses and junk and also review your antivirus and install a reliable and free alternative if the one you have is not up to the job.

Customer Testimonials

Really good, quick service. New disk sorted and old disk contents rescued. New external hard drive installed with instructions so that I don't lose any data and all within a couple of days. I shall definitely use again.

Excellent service as ever from Paul. I have used Tarka Computer Care for a few years now and will go nowhere else. A very speedy service at a reasonable price. Paul speaks your language and you do not need to be a computer expert to understand his instructions. I have recommended him to a couple of friends and everyone has been very pleased....so if you are looking for help do not hesitate giving Paul a call.

Rang up and got a very quick response that was very friendly and helpful. Was able to take in my pc that same hour and was phoned the next day with the diagnostics. Unfortunately the computer was beyond repair however I was saved a lot of ease with the no fix no fee scheme and was also given great advice in purchasing a new pc. Very fast and excellent customer service!

Paul took my sick laptop and has completely given it a new life, more speed, more memory - he even fixed the hinges! Everything was itemised clearly and the work completed quickly and at a very fair price. I would not hesitate to recommend Tarka Computer Care.

Paul has helped me & my son out with our PC nightmares. Nothing is too much trouble & very good value for money.

I have have never had a Computer Engineer before who I had confidence in, but I do now. Job was completed quickly and professionally for a very reasonable price. I had a discussion about future computer needs and left. When I set up at home an E-mail was waiting from Paul setting out the direction to take as he had thought about our conversation after I had left. This was over and above the service I expected, thanks a lot Paul.
