Broadband & Networking

Broadband and wireless networking for home and business

At ads computers we specialize in jargon free, friendly advice about repairs, upgrades and bespoke home and small business computers. We especially cater for the first time buyer and PC novices. Any conversation about your requirements will be kept in plain English.

We will not try and blind you with science as seems to be the trend with many PC resellers.

We only stock quality components from major manufacturers. We have learnt over the years that lesser, unbranded components, although a cheap alternative, will not be as reliable or long lasting. This policy has given us an excellent reputation for reliable systems.

Our systems are built with the future in mind, with plenty of scope for upgradeability should you later decide to expand your PC.

We can call at your home or business to carry out repairs, upgrades, install new components and set up broadband and wireless networking. We pride ourselves on excellence in customer service and after sales service, with the hope that we can maintain your custom and trust for the future.

Based in Stapleford, Nottingham, we cover the Nottingham and Derby area.

PC For Sale - refurbished ex-gaming PC.

I dont usually do this, but I did offer to help a customer who has just bought a new PC from us, and wants to sell his old one. We built it six years ago, and have serviced it annually, so we know its history.

We are simply advertising this for him, so it wont be us supplying it - it's a private sale.
We have fully refurbished it for him as part of the new PC sale deal. It will be for collection from here at ads computers, although the seller will be here for the sale.

The PC was very powerful when new, and is still a very fast system. It has an Intel i7 2nd gen CPU, a Radeon RX580 4.0GB graphics card, 16.0GB of memory. It has a 256GB SSD as the main drive, and a 1.0TB HDD as the data drive. It also has a built in wireless adapter. It will still play games, although it will struggle on the very newest games that require newer processors. This is ideal as a photographic PC or a PC for playing older games such as Counterstrike, World of Warcraft etc. The trade term is "light gaming".
It has the latest update of Windows 10 - 21H2 - installed, along with a standard software package. We will install any Office program or software etc for the buyer.

It comes with a relatively new wireless keyboard and mouse, and a 22" Viewsonic monitor.

Price being asked is £495.00. No offers though, as this is a good price in the first place.

Amazon & Visa credit cards

As you may well have read or heard in the news yesterday, after January 19th 2022 Amazon will no longer accept Visa credit cards. This is basically because Amazon claim the charges they pay have been increased from 0.3% to 1.5%. More detail about this is in the link below.
Amazon released a mailshot yesterday to all customers, one that will arrive over the coming days, outlining what's happening. BUT, they have included a link for a £20.00 voucher as "compensation" to affected customers.


Firstly, the link only works if you already have a Visa credit card on file with them.
Secondly. the are a plethora of scam versions of this email out there already.

If you get this email, whether its the real one or the scam one, dont click any links on it. I must reiterate this a dozen times a day as we get asked about email authenticity many times a day - never click on an email link unless you are a)expecting it, and b)100% sure you know its genuine.
The simplest way, with this Amazon example or any other email tempting you to click a link, is to delete the email, then access your account for that company direct from their website. If the email was genuine, the offer or reward will be there for you in your account settings.
Below is a copy of the genuine email. BUT - the fake one is identical in all but one respect. On Amazons email, the link takes you to your account settings. On the fake email, the link takes you to a copy of the Amazon website, and immediately asks for your log on details.

Its easy to avoid getting scammed this way - never click on an email link unless you are a)expecting it, and b)100% sure you know its genuine.
