Thai PC Support specializes in providing computer services to small businesses and home users. As such we have the perfect offering for the professional home worker.
We provide corporate service levels not normally associated with home users and we offer a range of service contracts specifically created for the home worker that start at under £10 per month. These contracts provide peace of mind and exceptional value for money. See Home Service Agreements for more details.
Yes. We provide a range of products and services specifically for small businesses. These include one-off emergency support, on-going service contracts, computer system checks, in addition to design, installation and configuration of complete office systems.
Also, unlike most computer service companies, The PC Support Group does not service the whole business market; we only work with small companies (typically less than 100 users), which means that you will never get that feeling that you are getting second class treatment while bigger customers are serviced. You will always get the personal and flexible service you need and desire.
We know how small businesses work and we know what matters to them… fast efficient service and value for money. Consequently our entire offering is built around these requirements. Just take a look at our Testimonials to see what some of our existing client’s think of us.
You’ve got nothing to lose by giving us a call on +66 2686 3440 to see how we can help you get the most from your computer systems. For more information on how we can help and support small businesses, see our business services section.
Yes. We offer a range of service agreements designed to accommodate the needs of everyone from the single PC casual home user to the small business running a server and number of networked PC’s. They all provide access to a phone help line, instant remote response, a number of inclusive on-site visits (depending on the level you choose) and none of them tie you in for a set period. Starting at under 1000 bath per month they offer exceptional value for money and give you total peace of mind.
Obviously if we could accurately tell you this here then our job would be a lot easier. Although we can’t tell you what’s wrong we can suggest a few obvious things before you contact us. However, please be warned that if you don’t know what you’re doing then some of these could cause more damage so be very careful or just call us anyway (better to be safe than sorry!):
a) The PC is entirely dead – check that there is power to it. Plug another appliance into the same power socket and see if it works. If you are running your laptop from a battery then plug it into a mains socket to see if the battery has simply “run out of juice”. Check the fuse in the plug or use another power cable to make sure it’s not that causing the problem. If you’re using an extension lead then eliminate this as the problem by using another lead or by plugging your computer directly into the mains socket. If all of this doesn’t reveal an obvious problem then you probably need our help.
b) The keyboard is dead – re-boot the PC to make sure a particular program hasn’t stopped and made the keyboard appear to be dead. Borrow another keyboard from a friend or neighbor to see if this makes a difference. If this doesn’t reveal an obvious problem then you probably need our help.
c) The screen is dead – Check the power lead and mains socket that the monitor is plugged into as in point a) above. Borrow another monitor from a friend or neighbor to see if that works. You can do this even for a laptop either as a temporary measure or to check whether it’s the screen or the hardware that the screen connects to inside the laptop. If this doesn’t help or reveal an obvious problem then you probably need our help.
d) Your internet connection keeps dropping or running slowly – this is usually either down to a modem problem or more likely, temporary problems with your Internet Service Provider. Before wasting money on getting expert support it is worth waiting a few hours (or, if you can afford to, a whole day) and trying again to see if the problem has “gone away”. If it hasn’t then contact your ISP to be sure they don’t have a problem. If all this doesn’t help then give us a call.
e) Your PC is “doing strange things” such as rebooting, running very slowly, popping up windows or programs that you have not requested – In this case your PC is probably infected by a computer virus and you probably need our help to remove it and secure your PC in the future.
If the above tips have not revealed a more obvious source for your computer problem then call us now on +66 2686 3440 or request our Instant Remote Support which may enable us to fix the problem in minutes without us even visiting you.
This depends on a number of factors such as whether you have a service contract, whether the visit is to assess a specific requirement, or if it is for a one-off support call.
Our Instant Remote Support starts at only 1000 bath. No Fix No Fee!
Our Service Contracts start at only 500 bath per month per PC
Our on-site visits start at only 1000 bath per hour and 500 bath for the next hours but the total cost will depend on the type of visit and time required. We will always give you an estimate before you commit. We have a No Fix No Fee policy and we have a maximum 2 hour charge for any single problem for Home Users so you’ll never have runaway costs.
No. We only charge for the actual work we do.
No. We do not charge for travelling time – only the time spent by the engineer working on your computer is chargeable. And remember, our remote management software may mean we don’t even need to travel to you! One of our engineers may be able to resolve your problem right now by logging into your PC… with your permission of course.
Provided your computer can still access the Internet then we could potentially resolve your problem within the next few minutes. Our technology enables us to fix over 90% of computer problems remotely. It is totally secure and means that we can fix many of your computer problems without you having to wait for a technician to visit. You just sit back and relax while our experts solve the problem right in front of your eyes.
If you are unable to access the internet or your problem is a physical hardware problem then we can arrange for one of our friendly and professional engineers to visit you at your home or business premises, often within hours.
Yes. You can either call us when you need us or you can take out one of our service agreements which include an annual check as part of the service. For more information follow this link for Home User Service Agreements and this one for Business Service Agreements.
Provided your PC meets a certain basic minimum standard (see our Terms & Conditions for details) then we will be happy to support it. Generally, if a computer isn’t to our minimum standard then it should be replaced as replacement parts will be hard to find and the software that runs on it will no longer be supported by the manufacturer. If this is the case then we can provide you with advice on the perfect new system to meet your requirements. We will never try to sell you something you don’t need!
Yes. All of our engineers can offer you advice on products and then deliver them to your home or business. Basically we can provide everything you could possibly need for your home or office computer set-up! And what’s even better is that we can provide you with a complete “no hassle” package including installation, set-up and on-going support.
No. We only sell new computers and peripherals.
Yes. Not only will we upgrade your computer but, if you like, we will assess your current computer’s specification against your needs, recommend the perfect upgrade, provide all the necessary parts and perform the entire installation and set-up. What more could you want?
We accept cash, cheques plus credit, debit card and paypal payments.
We can provide our Instant Remote Support service wherever you are in the world so your location isn’t important.
