Computer repair and multiple monitor installation at Warwick in Warwickshire

Good afternoon we are with Sterling Philips on Coten End at Warwick in Warwickshire.

We are here to fix a Dell Dimension computer that the customer has reported as not working, the fault here is that the computer powers up and then freezes on the BIOS screen.

After some investigation we discover that the USB ports on the front of the machine have some how been damaged so we open the computer up and disconnect the ports so to prevent more damage occurring through accidental use, this has got the customer up and running and after a brief check found the main screen was blurry this was found to be an incorrect resolution set and adjusted the screen settings accordingly

Multiple Monitor Set up

also in the office the customer had another Computer  with 3 Monitor screens attached but only 2 working, after changing settings in the BIOS and installing the correct drivers we fixed it so that the machine has 3 monitors working.
