Oct 06

Buying a new PC or your old PC broke down? Manager of a tech firm and employees complaining about software bugs or hardware problems? No need to crack your head or pull your hairs, we might just have the perfect solution for these situations, and that is Third Party Tech Support. No need to worry when the manufacturer’s warranty dies off, no need to pay for expensive extended warranty options from OEMs or call their company customer service who charge exorbitant prices.

Having a very talented and knowledgeable group of technicians and engineers, it, in fact, becomes a really easy task for third party service providers to actually provide solutions for your hardware and software problems. Often nowadays when you buy a PC it comes with a different operating system installed. This is done by OEMs as a cost-cutting measure, but the most popular operating system is windows, and the user has to spend extra money towards buying it. Often the less tech savvy people has to suffer because of this measure as the ways to install a new OS is quite alien to them.


This is where such companies can actually be helpful for the common people. A manager of a particular firm is always concerned about saving money, as a result extending the life cycle of the company hardware can be of utmost importance. Often OEM service centers charge a huge amount of money for any trivial complication in hardware. Also, their service is more oriented towards selling newer hardware than repairing old ones. Thus third party service providers can become a crucial member in these situations. Not only do they provide cheap, but also provide quality service.

Reasons to Adopt Third Party Tech Support:

  • Cost: Cost is a primary reason why these services are so popular. Not only do they save the hassle of buying new hardware every time the old one fails, but also save the company from adopting extended warranty offers which are generally way more expensive from OEMs. The technicians are knowledgeable and have enough experience in handling common day problems.
  • Flexibility: OEMs are always concerned about more sales. They come out with new hardware every single year and are always ready to push these into the market. As a result, their service, although its good still is more focused towards preparing the market for its new product. Third party service providers are not at all concerned about such goals. Their whole business model is based around creating better customer satisfaction by providing efficient service.

  • Simplification: Management of extended warranty for all the brands of product used by a company can actually be a big hassle at times. It deals with contacting individual data centers and negotiating with everyone separately. Third party service providers are not OEM centric. They deal with a variety of brands at the same time. As a result dealing with third party service providers can be a much simple task compared to individual OEMs.

Easy Ways To Upgrade And Set Up Windows 10 Pcs

Oct 04

With the release of Windows 10, Microsoft is slowly phasing out other versions of the operating systems. So, if you are running your computer on an older version of Windows, you can update your version of Windows to the newest version for a faster, more secure and a better performing PC.

Getting Windows 10

Windows 10 was provided as a free update to most older versions of Windows for a year after Windows 10 was initially released. After that, Windows 10 received multiple updates. If you do not own a copy of Windows 10, then you will have to purchase one from a vendor, or directly from the company. Purchasing from your PC vendor have its own advantages though as you can expect your vendor to install and set up your PC. Contact KnowHow customer service for any queries related to setting up your PC.


Upgrade Paths

When your vendor or the technician is upgrading your PC, there are a few things that you will need to know. Generally, Windows provides three options during installation. One, to keep all files and apps, two, to keep all files, and three, to perform a clean install. Based on what operating system and programs you have installed; you may not have option one available.

Your technician will obviously confirm what is to be done before proceeding. But it is better to keep a backup of all the files and have a list of all the programs that you have installed. After the upgrade is done, you can restore the backup and re-install the program. You can also have the technician install the programs for you. If they are installing programs from their own software repository, make sure they are malware free, legal and are up to date. You can activate the licensed programs later on.

Precautions To Take

When you are upgrading your version of Windows, there are some precautions that you will need to take. Usually, when you avail the most inexpensive service from the vendor, they will not look into all these and later, you can get into problems.

One, check that your computer meets the system requirements. The systems requirements are provided on Microsoft’s website. When you are buying a physical copy, ask the vendor for the system requirements. If you do not understand the meaning of all the specifications, you can always ask for a technician to look at your PC and see if it can run Windows 10. Usually, computers that are even five or six years old can run Windows 10. But, there is no harm in getting it checked.

Two, see that all your hardware works when you are upgrading to Windows 10. This includes scanners, printers, cameras and others. Most networking devices, along with input and output devices will work. If all your devices work, after the installation of Windows, ask the technician to install the drivers and set up all the devices connected to your computer as well.

Finally, make sure all your older programs work. Most of them will work and even will have newer versions that will run on the newer versions of Windows.
