Getting Things Set Up

getting things set up

Need to get things working?

If you need assistance to set up your home or business PC, network, internet connection, peripherals or software then LadyBird Computing are here to help.

Whether its putting the bits together in the right order, upgrading your equipment, or adding new components, there's no need to worry about getting it wrong as we can quickly get it all sorted for you.

broadband routers and wireless networks


Broadband routers and wireless networks can be particularly confusing - and even if you've got it working, are you sure it's totally secure? For example, an insecure wireless router could allow people outside your home to use your connection.



Or maybe you're struggling to set up your email accounts on your new PC, or to transfer all your work and pictures etc across from an old machine.

software installation and configuration


What about installing some new software and getting it all configured and arranged so that it fully meets your needs and works the way that you want it to?

Whatever your position, if you could do with a bit of a hand then please get in touch.

PC / Laptop Problems

PC and laptop problems


If you are having problems with your PC, laptop, printer etc then don't panic - whether it looks like you've been infected by a virus, a component has failed, or just 'something has gone wrong', LadyBird Computing is on hand to sort things out.

Tune-ups and maintenance


If your machine seems to be running very slowly, then it could be time for a service to get it back into tip-top condition - just like cars, boilers and lots of other machinery, computers need a bit of regular attention and cleaning up from time to time.

things not working

Something's not working

Having trouble connecting to the internet? CD drive stopped working? Machine keeps crashing? You are not alone! All computer users experience problems at some time. Fortunately many issues are not too serious and can be fixed quite easily. Even if you have unfortunately been hit by a virus or other malicious software, spyware etc, it can be sorted out.

dead machine

It's dead

If your machine looks to be dead, it may be a simple component failure in which case it could be brought back to life with, for example, a new hard disk drive. Or it could be a software problem eg. needing the operating system to be re-installed. In all cases, if the problem can be fixed it will be done at a reasonable price, and if the potential cost makes a repair uneconomical then I will tell you!

backups and data transfers

Backing up your machine

Have you thought about what would happen if your computer failed and you lost all your work, photos, music etc? Backing up your data is vital - and would also be useful if the machine were to be stolen.
I can perform individual backups for you and/or advise on the best way to take care of these things for yourself in future.

Training, Guidance and Advice

training, guidance and advice If you need any assistance or guidance at all, LadyBird Computing is here to help.

getting started

Don't know where to start?

If you are thinking of buying a PC or laptop but don't know what you need, or perhaps are thinking of changing an old PC for a new laptop, then we can help you to make the right choice.

We don't sell equipment, so can give honest and impartial advice to guide you through the maze of products and suppliers available.

Once you've made your choice, we can also help to put it all together and get it fully set up ready for you.

conquering the fear

Got a PC but a bit scared to use it?

Don't worry, it can seem very daunting at first and you may worry about breaking something, but really all you need is some practice with a guide at your side to get you going.

LadyBird Computing can be that guide, with tailored coaching to get you from the first moment of panic when you switch it on to feeling a sense of achievement in completing whatever is important to you - sending some emails, writing a letter or even preparing a presentation.

achieving more

Know some of the basics and want to achieve more?

If you're already using your PC or laptop, but want to get past the basics, then specialised tuition can help.

Even the standard software packages have lots of options and choices, and there is always something extra to learn which can enable you to produce better documents or presentations etc, or accomplish something different.

internet confusion

Confused about the Internet?

Perhaps you've ventured online but are unsure what to do next and nervous about where you might end up - if so, help is on hand to guide you through the tangled web.

There's no doubt that the internet is a vast and potentially dangerous place, but with just a little guidance it can become a hugely helpful source of information as well as so much more.

any other requests

Any other requests?

If you have any questions on any computing topic, then LadyBird Computing can provide guidance and practical assistance in a wide range of subjects eg. backing up your PC; security concerns; emails; transferring, editing and storing photos; using skype; using a scanner; family history research tools; and lots more.

Training can be given on an individual one-to-one basis, or group sessions can be arranged on a wide range of topics eg. how about a talk on "getting to grips with the Internet" for your club?

Scanning Service

document scanning

Documents needing to be scanned?

If you have any documents you need scanning - either to be able to keep an electronic copy for yourself or perhaps to send by email - then LadyBird Computing can take care of this.

Pictures can also be scanned allowing you to keep a permanent copy of any photo - whether old or new.

Anything you want a copy of can be scanned and sent to you by email, saved to a pen drive, or written to a CD/DVD for you to keep - whatever works best for you.

Scanning starts at 75p per item for small quantities, or for bulk requests of more than 20 items then the cost is just 50p each.
