Samsung Galaxy Note 7

The US Department of Transportation has banned Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones on flights after reports of the device catching fire.

Passengers will not be able to take the phones on flights or in their luggage to and from the US from 16:00 GMT on Saturday.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)  had previously advised against packing the phones in luggage.

Samsung  permanently stopped Galaxy Note 7 production  this week.

"We recognise that banning these phones from airlines will inconvenience some passengers, but the safety of all those aboard an aircraft must take priority," Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx  said in a statement .

"We are taking this additional step because even one fire incident in-flight poses a high risk of severe personal injury and puts many lives at risk."

Samsung recalled around 2.5 million phones in September after complaints of exploding batteries.

While it later insisted that all replaced devices were safe, there were reports that those phones were catching fire too.

The company then said it would stop Galaxy Note 7 production.

"The fire hazard with the original Note 7 and with the replacement Note 7 is simply too great for anyone to risk it and not respond to this official recall," said US Consumer Product Safety Commission Chairman Elliot Kaye.

"I would like to remind consumers once again to take advantage of the remedies offered, including a full refund. It's the right thing to do and the safest thing to do."

Computer maintenance & repair

We can help troubleshoot any problem with your computer, whether home-built or a named brand such as Acer, Asus, Compaq, Dell, HP, e-machines, Sony, Toshiba, IBM, Lenovo, Gateway, and all the others. We repair & troubleshoot start-up issues, hardware & software problems.  We can test, supply and replace failed components. The most common hardware issues are failing hard drives, faulty power supplies and bad capacitors on the main-board. You shouldn’t have to put up with computer problems on our watch.

Dedicated laptop repair

Has your screen failed or blacked out? Have you dropped your laptop and it no longer starts up? Does the battery no longer charge? We can test, repair or replace failed components with the most common being power-jack repairs, screen and keyboard replacements.

Virus, Spams and Malware Remover

Viruses, malware and spyware have become a serious threat, with the real nasty ones either stealing your banking details or encrypting your files than demanding a ransom.

They can silently infect while trying to steal your passwords, credit card numbers, and your identity. We have specialist tools to remove them, and will recommend an antivirus to keep you safe in the future. Viruses, malware and spyware are the most common causes for your computer to act strangely or start operating slowly. If you’re receiving annoying pop-ups or maybe your hard drive is constantly working away. These are just a couple of signs that your computer could be infected with spyware.

Re-installing the operating system

Computers can slow down because of the increase in software, plugins, and adware that gets installed over time. Viruses can cause irreparable damage to system files requiring a reinstall.

If we think you’re better off with a re-install, we can back up your data, format your hard drive and reinstall the operating system. You should avoid running a “factory reset” on your own unless you’ve recently backed up. Factory resets can and will delete your personal files and can on albeit rare occasions make things worse.

We have well proven methods to reinstall with all the latest updates and service packs whilst preserving your data. Many people compliment us by saying their computer runs faster than when it was new. We can re-install XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Setup and transfer personal data a new computer

If you’ve recently purchased a new computer and need your files transferred from your old one, we can help. We’ll transfer your photos, documents, music, and setup email accounts from your old computer to your new computer.

If your old computer doesn’t boot or start-up, we can also attempt to recover the files. We also include the setup and tune up of the new computer, meaning we’ll remove the trial software, do the windows updates, and install Anti-Virus software for you.

Loving the upgrades

Upgrading certain components is a great way to extend the life of your machine for a few more years without investing in a new one. In most cases installing more memory, a new hard drive, and/or a new video card can speed up your system. The biggest upgrade for a surge of performance is to install a SSD (Solid State Drive), this is a hard drive that has no moving parts and is vastly faster than a standard hard drive.
