How long will my Laptop battery last?
We guarantee our batteries to last for a minimum of half an hour, but most normally last longer than this. Please make sure the device is charged for at least six hours even if Windows reports that battery is at 100% charge.
I have ordered Microsoft Office, but it has not arrived with my goods?
Microsoft Office is supplied via a download code, which will be sent to you 14 working days after delivery. If you have not received it after this time, please contact us.
I have powered on my PC/Laptop and it asking me to insert my Windows 10 key, but I don’t have one?
We attach the Windows 10 key (the COA: Certificate of Authenticity) to the unit. It is a small sticker about 2" x 1". On a laptop it is normally on the bottom of the device, and for a PC it is normally on the back or the side. If you cannot see it make sure you thoroughly check the entire item. This article explains how to activate Windows but if you still cannot see the sticker, please contact us.

Do you deliver Overseas?
Sorry, we do not deliver ourside of the UK at this time. We can deliver to a shipping company in the UK, for you to arrange further shipping from there.
Do you install 32 or 64 bit version of Windows 10?
We install 64-bit Windows 10 on all our devices.
Do you sell anti-virus software?
Sorry, we do not because all Windows Operating Systems come with Microsoft Security Essentials built in. This is a very effective anti-virus and anti-malware program, and does not slow your machine down in the same way as other programs like Norton and McAfee.
Do you sell computers with Windows 7, or older, installed?
Unfortunately, Microsoft do not allow us to install older versions of Windows as they are unsupported versions. We only use genuine Windows 10.
Is it true that Microsoft is stopping support for Windows 7?
Yes, on January 4th 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates for Windows 7. This is very important as after this date your computer and data could potentially be at risk. We would advise keeping regular backups, and upgrading to a Windows 10 computer as soon as possible.
My PC came with Wi-Fi, how do I get it working?
The Wi-Fi card was pre-installed in your desktop PC, but there are two antennae's that need screwing into the round gold coloured threads on the back of the PC. We leave them unscrewed to save them getting damaged in transit.
