Hardware Services

Computing devices experience strange behavior from time to time. This strange behavior can be caused by a host of problems which include recent software patches, incompatible hardware, viruses, and failing components. Our technicians are very adept at discovering the source of these problems and recommending solutions. 

Once we have figured out what is causing the issue we can repair or replace the hardware components that we have identified.

Are you looking to improve your current computer and want to install hardware upgrades? Well… we can handle that task for you. Installing computer hardware requires computer expertise that is usually beyond that of the average computer user. Fortunately, our technicians have many years of experience in this area. 

We can install a multitude of hardware components including hard drives, memory, expansion cards, GPU/Graphics cards, disk drives, audio expansion cards, and much more.

If you’re looking to install a hardware component(s) that you recently purchased but can’t find the time in your schedule to handle it yourself, we can do it for you. 

If your hardware component, for some reason, turns out to be incompatible with your machine we can recommend options that are compatible. Additionally, we could potentially find a way to make it compatible with your system. Keep in mind that this isn’t always possible, but we will do everything we can to make it work.

Sometimes hardware components just reach the end of their life and need to be replaced. This is a task that our technicians have handled countless times and do on a routine basis for our clients. 

If you already have the component we can install it. If you don’t, let us locate it for you and handle the install. Either way we have your back and will get you up and running in no time.

Desktop computers are becoming increasingly rare to see in the big box technology retailers these day. Additionally, when you do come across them they are usually underpowered and not tailored to any specific use. Golden Coast Computers has the technical expertise to build completely custom computers. We can hand pick components to fit your computing needs and that also fits your budget.

Sometimes you have a dilemma that exists within your business and know it could be solved with technology but don’t know where to start. This is where Golden Coast Computers comes in. We can assess your dilemma and make recommendations that could potentially eliminate it.

Technology is forever evolving and everyday software and hardware engineers are creating new technologies making everyday problems obsolete. Let us be your liaison between the the tech world and your business.

Software Services

When software goes on the fritz it can be very frustrating. There are a host of issues that can cause software to malfunction, almost too many to quantify. Sometimes it’s something simple and in other cases it can get very technical. Let us navigate this for you and get you back up and running.

The internet is a minefield when it comes to malware, spyware, and viruses. It’s getting harder and harder to identify friend from foe when it comes to websites on the world wide web. For that reason, at some point in your computing life you will unintentionally install one of these and have to get it excised from your system. Luckily, we have the ability to do this for you. 

All of the computers that we work on in this area get backed up prior to virus removal. This is done because sometimes a virus is so embedded there is no choice but to format(erase) the hard drive where it resides. In these cases we can extract the data from your drive and still make it available to you after we have fixed your device. 

Need software installed but don’t know how it is done? Let us tackle it for you. We can install anything you would like as long as it is compatible with your systems specifications.

If the software you are asking us to install isn’t compatible with your system we can do a little research and make recommendations for alternatives. 

Well maintained software suits periodically need to be updated to the latest version. Additionally, software will often have security updates, patches, and minor release updates that need to be installed. If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself let us do it for you. 

Before installing the updates we will first research the update and make sure there are no known problems occurring to systems as a result of the update. If there are, we will hold off and recommend that you wait. When the time comes and the update is safe you can bring it back in and get it installed.

Network Services

Does your business have a server running your workstations but you don’t have a dedicated IT specialist? If this is the case, when problems occur that exceed the abilities of your office computer guru, we can step in and assist in getting your network up and running. Troubleshooting servers is a very specialized skill and we have the expertise to handle it and get your network functioning again.

Whether you’re looking to add a new workstation to your network, or ten workstations, we can run all of the necessary cabling for you. Our technicians have run miles… yes miles… worth of cable for clients all over the community and throughout their careers in IT. 

Cat 5, Cat 6, and fiber can all be handled by us.

Preparing for a new employee generally requires a new workstation being installed at their desk. Golden Coast Computers can unbox, install, and join that system to your network for you.
