We had a PC that was totally stuffed due to viruses and other things and had not been able to use it for a couple of years. The Total Microsystems team got me to bring it in and had it up and running perfectly in no time! this was quite a while ago now and it's still running perfectly to this day. Would highly recommend these guys to everyone! Thank you very much guys!

I have been using Total Microsystems for all our computer purchases, maintenance and repairs for over 9 years and have nothing but good things to say about their service and professionalism. As a Beerwah business ourselves, we like to support other local business and we have had excellent service, particularly when the need has been urgent - our business depends on our practice management system. Andrew, in particular, has shown endless patience explaining technical 'jargon' to us, setting up new hardware and reassuring us when we panic! A big thank you to Daniel, Tara, Andrew and James for all your help and we look forward to continuing our association with you as we grow in the future.Nicky Webb, Practice Manager, Beerwah Active Physio

Total Microsystems have looked after our computer requirements in a very professional manner. The staff have always taken a lot of time to explain the complexity of the type of repairs needed, the cost and their recommendation on what procedure was most cost effective. From our experience over 10 years we have always been totally satisfied; knowing that the same repairs or maintenence at another provider would be far more costly. We have the confidence that if we are not completely satisfied the staff would work out a pleasing solution. Microsystems are excellent at tuning into technophobic clientele, using plain speech to educate the older generation.

Best shop for all things techy going around. The level of support and knowledge is No 1. The staff always go above and beyond to help you, no matter what your questions or requirements. We have brought laptops there, had repairs done and brought many accessories from them over the years and honestly will not go anywhere else. I recommend them, without hesitation, to anyone in need of those services.

Recently my 10 year old iMac died. I could not turn it on and to top it off my external back up had failed. After much conversation with Apple phone consultants and also taking it to Apple store at Chermside, they told me they could not help because it was a 'vintage model'. So I brought it here to the guys at Microsystems and they retrieved all the data on my hard drive and migrated it to the new one without a hitch. Thank you for your service, it was a lifesaver.

Frequently Asked Questions

This can happen from time to time, and is a kind of limbo state that notebooks can get into. Start by holding down the power button for 10 seconds, or until the power light turns off. If the light still doesn’t turn off, try taking the battery out and then restart the machine. If the battery is not easily removable you will need to bring the machine for us to diagnose.

First, check cables going to both monitor and the computer. If they are all connected properly, try a different wall power outlet. Failing this, there could be a problem with the AC transformer. These can be damaged especially if you have had a power outage recently. In this case we would need to diagnose the machine.

In most cases this is either a memory or video card problem.  Changes in weather, or a sudden jolt to the machine can cause the memory or video card to not sit in their slots properly.  If you bring the machine to us we can clean the offending parts and make sure that are seated securely.  We can also run hardware diagnostics to make sure there is nothing more sinister going on.

Power outages and surges can destroy computers, that’s why using surge boards and Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) are a good idea.

Usually when the computer receives a surge of power, the power supply (transformer) part of the computer is damaged. In most cases this is the only part that is damaged, and replacing the power supply will get you up and running again.

Yes! LCD panels on the majority of notebooks can be replaced for considerably less than replacing the whole machine. We can even repair MacBook glass that has been cracked.

Individual keys are generally not repairable, or economical to repair. The whole keyboard on most notebooks can be replaced fairly inexpensively.

Both of these issues are usually referred to as The Blue screen Of Death.

The cause of a BSOD can be one of many things, such as a faulty power supply, bad drivers, viruses or other faulty hardware.

The best course of action is to let us run diagnostics over the machine to pinpoint the cause. After this a solution is not far away!

It depends on the type of drive failure.

Operating system faults and file system corruptions have a fairly high chance or being able to be recovered successfully.

If the drive has developed bad sectors (physical defects on the disks surface,) we can repair and recover the sectors (and data) as long as the number of failed sectors is not too high.

If the drive is ticking or not spinning, then there is generally nothing we can do in store. These types of problems usually need to be sent to a Data Recovery Specialist such as Payam Data Recovery. Note that this type or recovery is usually quite expensive, so you will need to weigh up how much your data is worth to you.

With the last few major updates for Windows 10, a lot of older computers(and even some newer ones) have slowed down due to the increased horsepower required to run it well.

We have found that a lot more disk operations are required with the latest updates, and older mechanical drives are having trouble coping.

A solution to this problem is to upgrade your drive to an SSD (solid state drive), which will allow these disk operations to happen much faster. Obviously, processor and RAM can also factor into the equation of slowness, but we have found that the drive is the biggest culprit.

Total Microsystems can service, repair and fix macs – especially many of those considered too ‘vintage’ by Apple to even bother repairing.

From hard drive replacements or upgrades to screen repairs and memory replacements – we can help get your  mac back up and running.

Call us, email us or drop us a message on our Facebook page to find out more.
