How much data does Windows 10 require to update and can it be stopped?

There is no set amount of data it can use, but it can use anything up to 4GB of data with a single update
Unfortunately there is no way to turn off Windows 10 updates but if you set your connection to a metered connection you can limit this usage.

Do I need an appointment to bring in my computer for repair?

No an appointment is not necessary as we operate on a first come first serve basis.
We only need appointments for house calls.

What do I need to bring with me when dropping off my laptop/ desktop computer?

For desktop computers, all you need to bring in is the tower and any CD’s you can find that belong to it (cables, monitors, keyboards, and mice are not needed).

For laptops, please be sure to bring in the charger as well as any CD’s you can find. We do not need your laptop case.

Also, if you are having a problem with a specific device (ex. your computer speakers aren’t working) please bring in that device

Do you have parts for sale?

Ring-A-Nerd is not a retail store but we do stock a lot of parts that are needed for most of the repairs we do. This is to reduce waiting time for our repair jobs. If you are in need of a part, give us a call or visit our office.

What is Spyware? What is a virus?

Spyware is software that keeps track of user information through the user’s Internet connection without the user knowing it. It then reports back on your internet usage, usually to advertise to you. A virus is a piece of code that is loaded onto your computer without you knowing it.

Viruses spread themselves on your computer, and are also sent out over the internet to infect other systems as well. Even a simple virus is dangerous because it will quickly use all available memory and cause your system to lock up.

Both virus and spyware can be very harmful to your system. If you fear you may be infected, Ring-A-Nerd offers a virus/spyware scan. Just bring in your system and we will scan if for you.
