What is a Preventative Maintenance Checkup?

Everyone knows that computers need maintenance to continue working properly over time. The problem is that many people either don’t have the time or the technical knowledge to properly maintain their computers.

To address this situation, Schrock Innovations created a service we called the PC Maintenance Checkup.

During the Maintenance Checkup, Schrock Innovations does all of the basic maintenance tasks that every computer user should be doing like defragging and scanning their hard drives, downloading Windows Updates, and removing unnecessary files from the hard drive (Vista users be careful with disk cleanup).

But in addition to the standard maintenance tasks, we also do some additional work that most home users do not have the capacity or desire to do. For example, during the Maintenance Checkup Schrock Innovations:

  • Scans your computer’s memory (Vital for Vista & Windows 7 users)
  • Blows dust and debris out of cooling fans
  • Checks fan rotation speeds and cooling effectiveness
  • Inspect your motherboard’s capacitors
  • Test your power supply
  • Ensures your installed Antivirus is effective and updated
  • Test all drives
  • Checks hard drive for masked bad sectors
  • Cleans computer exterior if needed
  • Repairs errors in the Windows Registry
  • Performs an advanced hard drive cleaning
  • Installs critical system support software
  • Scans for and removes malware
  • Scans for viruses and Trojans

The Maintenance Checkup costs $69.99 and typically takes a day to two days to complete in our Lincoln or Omaha Service Centers.

When you bring in your tower we do not need any cords or accessories, unless you are having problems with them you would like us to address.

If you are bringing in a laptop, please bring your power cord with you.

Unless you have been living under a rock you know that Ty’s Team with Extreme Makeover Home Edition is replacing a home in Havlock this week.

What you may not know is that the technology required to coordinate the estimated 1,500 needed volunteers is also being provided by Schrock Innovations.

The Home Builder’s Association of Lincoln (HBAL) called Schrock Innovations in early October about Project 411 – the code name for the planned renovation of the Machacek family home.

It was estimated that the build team would need more than 1,500 volunteers to complete the build within the one-week time frame, and HBAL needed an easy way to coordinate the schedules, skills, and abilities of the volunteers involved.
