We have recently purchased the latest Jovy System Infra-red BGA Rework Station, IRC oven and solder re-work stations, due to the high volume of boards failing our customers we now can bring back to life your systems. This allows us to repair your boards for laptops, consoles and much more at a small percentage to the cost of new motherboards. We have a very high percentage rate of re-flowing PCB / Motherboards and bringing back to life your PC’s, Laptops etc, instead of replacing very expensive boards. Below is a brief explanation as to why your display may not be displaying a screen or image:

When BGA chip-sets age or exceed thermal cycles it can cause problems with graphics display. These faults are caused by the fact that all manufacturers have to use unleaded solder during manufacturing of the boards. This was considered a more reliable solution for the electronics industry due to the fact that unleaded solder has a higher melting point than Leaded Solder . The only problem is that over time, Unleaded solder goes brittle and cracks. Our workshop is equipped with the latest state of the art Computer Controlled Dark Infra-red BGA re-flow stations to safely and professionally carry out this process. We carry out any type of Surface Mount Rework and SMT Rework on both Lead and Lead Free Based Circuit boards. Our services also include BGA Rework and Re-balling for Laptops, Desktops and Games Consoles.Our rework services will save you the problem of buying a new and expensive circuit board. Call us and let us revive your PC / Laptop / Notebook / Consoles and much more.

Please don’t become a victim to the fake security warnings advising you have numerous TROJANS / VIRUSES on your PC, ie – Windows Security  Antivirus 2013 / 2015 or PC Security etc, these are fake system security scanner programmes that pops up and modifies your system in such a away that every time you start your Laptop / Desktop the fake scanner will show results that you have threats. These are bogus antivirus screens and the fake screen (s) will ask you for your credit card details to remove the viruses. Click the NEWS TAB  for more information and examples of the fake screens. Contact Laptop Repairs Barrow for advice and we will gladly assist you.

There are many Viruses / Trojans / Malware on the internet, having a ant- virus programme will help prevent your system getting attacked by these rouge programmes.

What ever you do, do not submit a payment its is a scam. Call us and we will help and advise you.

TROJANS / VIRUSES / MALICIOUS SPYWARE

Be extremely cautious of opening any attachments from senders you do not recognise. Never open if the attachments are executable files (“. exe”, “.vbs”, and “.scr”) or a double file extension (such as “.txt.vbs”). Beware – These emails will usually have some tempting message to try and encourage you to open them before you have thought twice.
If in doubt about any email with an attachment use your anti-virus software to perform a scan before opening it.

PHISHING

Beware of “phishing” scams. These are sophisticated scams designed to fool users into thinking they are being contacted by trusted organisations such as banks or Microsoft. They try to con users into divulging financial information or to try and infect the machines with Trojans or worms. Be extremely cautious of any emails – however legitimate they appear – that ask you to divulge any personal information. If in doubt contact the organisation that the email claims to from before taking any action.

SPAM

Spam. Unsolicited “junk” e-mail sent to large numbers of people to promote products or services. Sexually explicit unsolicited e-mail is called “porn Spam.” Also refers to inappropriate promotional or commercial postings to discussion groups or bulletin boards. Pop up ads can silently download software that will use your computer to send out Spam.

Safe surfing for kids.

The Internet offers children of all ages vast opportunities for learning, constructive entertainment, and personal growth. At the same time, parents must be concerned and aware about the risks kids face on-line. The challenge for parents is to educate themselves and their children about how to use the Internet safely. By taking responsibility for your children’s on-line computer use, parents can greatly minimize any potential risks of being on-line.

We strongly recommend you have a look at the following websites for an in depth view of this subject.
