Due to the Windows 7 End-of-Support, this week has mainly been "Set up new PCs".
While this does include connecting printers to the new PC, it is classified as "New Set-Up", rather than "Printer Issues" :)
Also featuring: "Make Back-Ups" and "Supply and Fit New Home-Phone" (I know I'm not actually 'Land-Line Wizard', but when my regular customer asks me, I'm not going to refuse, even if it does mean scouring the whole of Leicestershire for the right model! ☎️)

A surprise jump to First place for "Secure wipe, and disposal, of old hard disk drives" this week!
Printers still get an honourable mention, because:
1) I had to haul an industrial-size colour laser down a flight of stairs, and it's ("I promise it is smaller! Honest!") replacement back up!
2) I had to drive 15 miles to "re-establish power connectivity interface" (transl: plug it in)

21/11/2019

Only one printer today! And that was a new one that needed setting up, not a fault! 😲
Several failed Routers this week though. Definitely winning the Weekly Leader Board!

BadNews: Software sent with customer's new laptop had not been activated, so would not install.
GoodNews: The "Team Knowhow" folk got it sorted promptly! A quick drive to Currys/PC World for a simple swap.

Been helping a teenager become a YouTube Star! (Well, recovering data from the PC she knocked over, and showing her around Google AdSense settings!)
She's not earned a huge amount yet, but her Animated Videos have nearly reached a million views! 😲
Will be keeping an eye on this one!

P.C. Wizard does not charge for short help/advice telephone calls.
So it was nice to receive a "Thank You" card from one of my customers (with a little something tucked inside!)!
It is moments like this that make my job seem so worthwhile, knowing that I have helped people through their problems!

It is sad that I have to keep posting this but:
BEWARE OF SCAMS!
Phone calls from "BT", "Your Internet provider", "On behalf of Microsoft" etc. saying you have been infected/strange activity on your account/compromised IP address ...
DO NOT BELIEVE THEM! Do not talk to them. Put the phone down.
If you are unsure, and wish to clarify, contact BT/provider using a number you already have, NOT the one they called from, or told you! Check your latest bill, or the phone book for a genuine number.
If you have any questions regarding suspicious calls, contact your local, friendly PC Technician!

Well, overall, Printers are still the #1 Problem, but making a surprising entry this week is "Smart TVs"!
Re-tuning lost channels, installing and setting up a new BT YouView box, and recovering Parental Control password!
Is your Tech Question one of my commonly-asked, or something more obscure? Either way, I'll do my best to help!

Where have all my files gone?

Well, printers are still pretty high on the Repairs list, but that is partly due to one printer needing a lot of attention!
First, clearing a paper-jam, and resetting some formatting in the Document.
Next, adjusting the Duplex settings for double-sided printing, and adjusting more Document settings (including Section Breaks)
Finally, replacing the Toner Cartridge, which was a lot more trouble than it should have been!
Also, another "Printer" appointment expanded into re-organising Files and Folders.
If you need help with Files and Folders, I have a tutorial:

TL;DR - call P.C. Wizard!
It may surprise you to learn that I like computers. Despite the many problems caused by them (and the mis-use of them), I think they are, on balance, a Good Thing.
Thus, it irks me when people have problems with computers, whether that be the computer not working properly, the person not knowing how to make it work properly, a misunderstanding of what should be happening.
I do understand that there are people who have grown up, and spent a large part of their life never having seen a computer, much less used one. And now they are thrown in at the deep-end, with email, online banking, Skype, Facebook, and much, much more!
I always advise people to use their computer exactly as much as they want to. No more. No less.
If you have problems, or need to learn, I can help with that.
But do not be pressured into using it for everything, if you do not want to.
For more advice, call 07941414828 to discuss your situation.
