Operating System

Are you still running Windows 7? Computer won’t support the newer operating system? This is a prime example of when you should upgrade your device. These older operating systems are no longer supported meaning they are more susceptible to problems than computers running the newer operating system.


Is your computer dated? Does it have an older processor, graphics card or even motherboard? Are you considering replacing all of these parts? Older parts can make the computer run worse and upgrading them can be costly.


As mentioned before, upgrading hardware in your computer can certainly improve performance but can also be quite expensive. In many cases, replacing the computer can be cheaper than buying each individual part for your device. Not sure which is the best option for you? Chipheads Computer Repair would be happy to help.
