Computer Tune Up
Is it taking longer for your computer to start up or shut down?
Do you have to restart your computer because of lockups?
Are you receiving error messages?
Does your computer act sluggish or seem to run very slowly?
Are your programs not responding or crashing?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you probably need a computer tune up.
Over time, your computer progressively slows down and becomes less effective and unreliable. Because the slow down occurs gradually, you may not notice the loss of performance. For optimal performance, your computer needs a tune up on a regular basis.
"Lake Computer Repair" can restore your computer to its peak performance and improve its reliability.
