When should I fix my PC/Laptop or buy new? (Gold Canyon Computer Repair, LLC)

It’s certainly not something we like to plan on, but if your computer/laptop is blue screening or locking up and it’s 3-5 years or older it can sometimes be related to hardware failure.

small business and community with BIG rewards (by Gold Canyon Computer Repair, LLC)

by Stephanie Calderone

Today I just wanted to share something about the benefits of being a part of a small community and service industry. I’m so grateful for all of the connections and rewards of living in a small community. Gold Canyon has the most wonderful people whether full-time or seasonal we enjoy meeting the local people and how every day brings an opportunity to learn something new.

I met a few of my husband’s customers at a community event I attended last week. One after another they expressed their shared experiences about the patience, kindness and great customer services they felt they received. Very humbling – I’m so glad my husband’s found his niche!

Often in business and marketing we need to answer the question ‘Why’. Why would a consumer want to select your business or services over competitors? For practical reasons, price and convenience are important, but it is certainly proven to me that it’s not the only reason to shop local. What I learned from my encounters of shopping locally and now from some of my husband’s customers was how happy customer’s are with the work and service they received thus far. It’s true I too enjoy shopping at local places that offer great customer service experiences.

Our biggest reward, in my humble opinion, enjoying repeat business and referrals while doing something my husband truly enjoys – fixing computers and helping people! Still there’s more to learn and do, but I’m hopeful we’re moving in the right direction.

When was the last time you cleaned your computer? (Gold Canyon Computer Repair, LLC)

It’s Dusting Time: Developing a Computer Cleaning and Maintenance Plan (by Gold Canyon Computer Repair) Dusting and computer maintenance is often something that is neglected going un-noticed until the computer starts to run slow. I’ve heard it all from I do my own cleaning and maintenance or I’ll just buy a new PC if it gives me problems. Whether you’ve committed to doing it yourself or having a computer professional perform routine maintenance and cleaning on your computer or laptop the important point is to keep up with it.

Annual PC Tune Up: Recommended maintenance every 6 months

Has your computer become slow & sluggish? At Gold Canyon Computer Repair a PC and/or Laptop Tune-up includes:

1.Running a series of utilities to clean your machine, delete unwanted files, perform disk clean-up, install Windows critical updates and if required,
2.Defragging your hard drive.
3.This also includes Physical Cleaning removing dust and pet hair which will optimize airflow and keep `computer to be properly cooled. Build up of dust can impact the health of your family and pets so if you see dust building up on the outside it might be time for a cleaning inside as well.

When was the last time you cleaned your computer inside and out? Since a picture is worth a thousand words below is a BEFORE image of computer submitted by a customer desperately in need of a tune-up and clean-up.

November 12th 6-8 PM – Exclusive after-hour party for the local GCUMC Food Bank

The Mountain Brew Coffee House (Kings Ranch Rd, Gold Canyon) is hosting an exclusive after-hour party to raise money, contributions and awareness for the local Gold Canyon Food Bank. The tickets are $20/person and include refreshments, snacks and X-Mas ornaments which we will hand-paint at the party. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Gold Canyon United Methodist Church Food Bank. We will also be accepting canned goods and other non-perishables.

The Gold Canyon United Methodist Church is one of the largest churches in the Gold Canyon area; they work on a number of charitable projects, including their own on-site food bank. The food bank is open from 8:30 am – Noon, Monday – Friday and the number of people needing assistance continues to increase. It is reported that 70% of Americans are only one paycheck away from losing everything often regardless of their income level. The volunteers shared with us that the people who visit the food bank varies from those who are homeless to many people who are often recently unemployed and down on their luck; they are doing their best to provide a hand up and hopefully prevent people from becoming homeless when possible.

A Case for Having a Computer Maintenance and Compliance Checklist?

Gold Canyon Computer Repair Apache Junction Chamber Ribbon Cutting 2/21/11

Gold Canyon Computer Repair Apache Junction Chamber Ribbon Cutting 2/21/11

When I think about compliance I think about how it relates to our health and wellbeing and what it means as it relates to ‘patient compliance’:

  • taking medications
  • following doctor orders
  • exercising
  • eating healthy and keeping our weight on target

What if we consider undertaking a compliance checklist as it relates to computer consumers.  A list relating to maintenance and upkeep, that is both novice and senior friendly, considering technology that has the capacity to be ‘upgraded’ overt time as we add programs and download more music, videos and pictures, etc.

Building a Simple computer maintenance and upkeep checklist:

• If you are in the market for purchasing new technology (PC and/or laptop), keep in mind your future computing needs. Upgrading your existing PC overtime is often the more affordable and green solution. A new computer that is up to date and can handle upgrades like adding more memory for faster web surfing, multi-tasking, printing etc.  Things to consider: how many memory slots are on the motherboard and what is the maximum RAM/cache your motherboard can support.

• Keep up with Annual Maintenance with a PC Tune-up (recommended maintenance every 6 months). PC Tune-up: Includes running a series of utilities to clean your machine, delete unwanted files, perform disk clean-up, install Windows critical updates and if required, defrag your hard drive. This also includes Physical Cleaning removing dust and pet hair which will optimize airflow and keep your computer properly cooled.

 • Running an Anti-Virus  program (free.avg.com/ is a trusted free antivirus and anti-spyware security software for Windows 7, Vista and Windows XP).

 • Most Common Performance Upgrades (Adding memory) or Replacing failed components such as a hard drive, power supply, network card & motherboard are some of the leading performance upgrades that will extend the life of your computer.

• Keeping our e-mail inbox at a manageable size. Creating GROUPS and SUB-FOLDERS within groups is a simple way to clean-up a bulky mail box (inbox, sent, draft folders).

• Routinely backing up data and other files

• After time your computer builds up a backlog of debris from software, ads and other unwanted programs, take an inventory of programs you no longer use and remove them to free up space.
