Operating System Install

The operating system (OS) is the backbone of your computer. Because your OS affects everything that goes on in your system, installing a new one can be tricky. Luckily, our Agents love this kind of stuff. Let us help.

My computer has been slow opening programs and saving files. Will installing a new operating system help?
It's hard to say without running some diagnostics. Updating your computer's operating system could improve its performance and having a new system installed will make sure your machine is compatible with new software packages. If you have your doubts, it would be best to have us diagnose the problem to verify the drive is functioning properly.

Is the cost of the operating system included in this service?
No, this service covers the installation and initial setup of a computer's operating system. You will need to purchase the OS before we can install it. Be sure to bring the OS discs or manufacturer restore discs with you when you come in.

What are OS discs or manufacturer restore discs?
These are your copy of the operating system that runs your computer. Back in the days of Windows XP, new computers came with these discs in the original factory box. Today, computer owners likely need to create their own copy of the OS by burning to discs or creating a USB drive copy.

What if I don't have my OS discs or manufacturer restore discs?
If you have not created a copy, contact the manufacturer to find out how to create or order a copy of the OS. We have contact information for most major manufacturers on the Computer Restore Discs page in the Self Help section of our site.

I use a Mac. Will you help me upgrade my system?
Absolutely. Our Agents are fluent in all major operating systems.
