JVDigital can reinstall your operating system, whether you are running Windows, Mac OS or Linux (selected distributions only).

We are often requested to simply reinstall the operating system to resolve an issue, while a fresh reinstall of the operating system is a great way to improve performance, it may not address the underlying condition alone.

In cases where the device is several years old and booting from a single spinning disk (ie, a normal hard drive) it is worth considering replacing the hard disk for a solid state drive (SSD).

While SSD’s do cost slightly more than ordinary hard drives, they contain no moving parts and can proccess read/write requests up to 10x faster, results in a a very healthy boost in performance.

For systems with 4GB to 8GB of RAM or less (usable system memory), most devices will accomodate additional capacity to improve performance and multitasking capabilities.

In the event the operating system needs to be reinstalled:

If the system is functional and has not suffered from data corruption, we can recover your documents, pictures, desktop items, browser history, application data and emails in most cases.

Items that cannot be recovered in usual circumstances (Windows devices only):

  • System settings
  • License keys from paid software
  • Application settings
  • Start menu layout
  • Wallpapers, fonts, themes
  • Passwords saved to credential manager or other password applications

Please be advised: Following a fresh perating system install, you may need to reinstall any applications you previously had.

 

In the event you are upgrading to a Solid State Drive (SSD):

A direct migration of your existing operating system including files and settings can be cloned to the new drive, this means you’ll recieve your device back with everything exactly as you left it with a healthy performance boost.

Yes, JVDigital is able to assist you with setting up regular file or system backups (or both).

The options available will depend on the type of device you have and how much data needs to be backed up.

The problems your computer is presenting could be because of an underlying network issue. JVDigital can assess network problems remotely or in person and make the necessary adjustments or recommendations.

JVDigital specialises in small and medium scale internal networks including Wifi access points.

JVDigital can supply and configure routers, ethernet switches, firewalls and wireless access points if required.
