Welcome to Lee Harvey Computing - Keeping Computers Simple

If you have a computer problem, there’s no need to unplug it, as we offer a mobile computing engineer service and can fix the problem at your premises in Helston, Cornwall. On hand to provide computing advice and technical support, we offer a no fix, no fee guarantee to those who are situated within a 35 mile radius of our base in St Austell.

Helston Computer Repair Services

Helston is the most southerly town in Great Britain, most famous for its local breweries, galleries and its annual Furry Dance – where the locals get to dance through to streets to celebrate the triumph of Spring over Winter. Situated off the beaten track, the lucky locals and small businesses of Helston place a heavy reliance on technology and digital devices. So, when computers go wrong, they have a detrimental effect on local trades and lifestyle. And, with Cornwall’s only city a car journey away, getting your PC or laptop fixed can often be a major inconvenience. But with Lee Harvey Mobile Computing we can visit you at your premises or property.

Screen Replacements

If you switch on your computer expecting it to burst into life, but instead sit staring at a blank or cracked screen, don’t despair, as more often than not your computer screen can be repaired. We also offer a laptop screen replacement service and can source a replacement screen on your behalf.

Power supply and charging issues

A blown power supply can cause all kinds of issues inside your computer tower. At Lee Harvey Computing we can diagnose all the faults and let you know what is required to get your machine back up and running.

Data Backup & Retrieval

We’ll help retrieve and recover any important files and resolve problems so that they are unlikely to happen again. Plus, we can show you how to back up your personal files via an external drive, cloud based system or a clone, so that you have multiple places in which to store it.

Virus & spyware removal

There are a significant number of viruses, malware and spyware hitting our screens, and if you are unfortunate enough to get targeted, we can remove viruses and spyware quickly. We’ll even ensure that you are running the most up to date anti-virus programs to protect and prevent against further issues.

Video Card (screen/display) Errors Solved

Error messages, flickering displays, lack of sound and even an empty screen does not mean that your computer is condemned. At Lee Harvey Computing, we are able to diagnose any faults and remedy any glitches whilst sourcing any parts required.

Hard Drive & Memory Replacement and Upgrades

If your computer is performing slower than you would like, or you are looking to boost its memory or battery life, then replacing the hard drive rather than the entire machine is often a cost-effective solution.

Wireless Networks & Wireless Printer Setup's

If your wireless router keeps dropping out, has poor signal strength or is vulnerable to security attacks, then we’ll quickly diagnose the problem and help you safeguard your settings. We can also help sync your printer to your computer in the process.

Laptop Internal Fan Replacement

If your laptop overheats, refuses to boot up, constantly cuts out or displays a fan error message then you probably have an overheating problem. We can source, fit and replace internal fans at a very reasonable price and offer a cooling system service to treat excessive heat problems.

Computer Repair FAQs

If you live in Cornwall and are experiencing computer problems, then Lee Harvey can help. Offering a mobile computer repair service, we travel the length and breadth of Cornwall delivering a full diagnostics and maintenance service for any make and model of desktop, laptop or tablet. Please note, that we may charge a small call out fee to cover travel costs for those who are situated outside of a 35 mile radius of St Austell.
Most computer repair work can be carried out on site and can usually be completed within a matter of hours. If, however, we diagnose a more serious problem with your computer – requiring it to be disassembled – then we would do this in our own computer workshop. Most complex computer repairs can be solved within 24 – 48 hours, however this does depend on whether additional parts need to be ordered.
Although we are happy to carry out the majority of our computer maintenance work within your home or at your place of business, for more complicated repairs such as taking your computer apart, we prefer to do this in a dust free and controlled environment. We may also need to take your computer away if we require specialist equipment or the use of soldering stations.
Depending on the type of problem you are experiencing with your computer will determine how much it will cost to fix. At Lee Harvey Computing we provide a free, no obligation diagnosis and will endeavor to get as much information as possible beforehand to ascertain the cost of repairs. We are transparent with our pricing and offer a no fix, no fee guarantee.
Our number one priority is to ensure that you don’t run the risk of losing any important information from your computer and will always backup your personal files before any repair work is carried out. We will always try to save and retrieve data but if your hard drive has failed or your files have become corrupted, deleted or lost, then this may not always be possible.
There are over 250,000 different types of virus and malware floating around the internet. Incredibly contagious they are often caught through no fault of our own and are usually transferred to your computer by downloading pictures, videos, or from accessing unsafe sites. As they have the ability to copy themselves across files, they can end up on your computer without you even being aware.
New computer viruses are being created every day, and whilst you can’t guarantee not to catch one, you can protect yourself by having up-to-date antivirus software installed. This will add another level of security to your computer, as will backing up your files, storing them in multiple places and changing passwords regularly.
You tend to get what you pay for when it comes to computers, so it is important that you do your research before investing in a new device. Buy cheap and you will probably find that after only a short period of time it is likely to become sluggish and lacking in power. We offer support for all your computing dilemmas and can advise on the best makes and models for your needs. We can even order a computer on your behalf and assist with the installation of your software packages.
We do offer software support for phones and tablet devices; but are unable to carry out any internal repairs on mobile phones. Although we can restore tablet screens and batteries; depending on the make and model; it is often more cost effective to replace the tablet itself, rather than seeking to repair it.
We are specialists at repairing PC devices and can offer full technical support for any make and model of desktop or laptop windows based computer. We do not profess to being Apple experts and for this reason do not repair Mac computers and have no plans to move into this market at any point soon.
Quite simply you don’t need to. The great thing about a mobile computer repair service is that we will come to you. At Lee Harvey Computing we cover the entire country of Cornwall and offer a door to door service for computer diagnosis and repairs. This means that you can enjoy the effortless nature of an engineer visiting you onsite and relax, safe in the knowledge that your computer has never left your sight.
We are specialists in computer repairs and do not offer any website or digital services ourselves. We do, however, have firsthand knowledge of the industry and deal with a digital specialist who has boosted our internet traffic and helped our business to grow. This agency comes highly recommended and we would be more than happy to put you in touch.
