That’s not what you’ll find here. At Yellowstone Computing, we chat with you about how you use your current computer, what kind of performance you expect from a new one, and how your needs might be changing. Looking for a laptop to replace a desktop? If you never take it from your desk, is a laptop the best way to go? Heading to college? Then maybe your laptop should be super light. We work with you to find the right tool for the job. Depending on your needs, we may even have exactly what you want on the shelf.
Then Comes the Real Fun.
Once you’ve got that new machine home and out of the box, you’ve inhaled that new tech smell and taken plenty of selfies to remember the moment forever, the anxiety can come flying back in. Which cord goes where? It doesn’t work like your old one! Why is it doing that?! How do I put programs back on? Does it come with security already loaded? If you’ve had your old computer for a few years, you know you’re in for a bit of inconvenience, no matter how shiny the replacement is. We can assist you through this transition period and make it all so much easier by:
Moving Your Old Files for You.
One thing most people forget during their new computer bliss-phase is how to get information off your old computer and onto your new one. If your old computer is too broken to start, this can be a real problem. Our technicians can transfer all your files to the new computer, turn your old hard drive into an external drive for, or copy the data onto a USB stick. You’ll be able to pick out the files you need and continue what you were doing. If you’d prefer, we can often install the old hard drive inside your new desktop so it’s always there and you have extra storage as a bonus.
Set Up Your Email.
It’s no secret, setting up email can cause headaches! Getting the settings perfect can sometimes be more error than success. The most common problem we see is email that can receive, but not send. It’s a frustrating problem, especially when you’re sending important emails. We can set your email up successfully and ensure it both sends and receives, as well as add in any additional email accounts you’d like to manage from the same app.
Save Your Favorites.
All those bookmarks you’ve made and carefully sorted (or not) are important. You may even have different collections of favorites in different browsers and the last thing you want to do is go find those pages again. We can retrieve your old favorites and put them onto your new computer, making your browser experience look and feel exactly as it did before, only faster.
Set Up Your Software.
Quite often these days, software doesn’t come on a CD. While that’s forward thinking and reducing waste, don’t you miss having a disk you could install from and the license key taped to the back? We sure do! Even so, we can help you re-download your programs and set up the licenses good as new. We also go one step beyond and make sure the new software is optimized, updated and working well. While we’re doing that, we make sure your anti-virus is up-to-date and you’re as secure as possible against threats.
Delivery & Setup.
Sometimes it’s a matter of knowing what cord goes where or getting the right adapter, but sometimes new devices can present software problems. Printers, webcams, game controllers, etc. all have unique drivers that need to be installed before they can work properly. Windows 10 is great at picking most of these up automatically, but if they’re not playing nice or your new computer is suddenly missing the correct plug, we can help get you moving again. With personal delivery and setup, we ensure all your devices are playing nicely together, so you can sit back and relax, while we get everything working!
